  1. I’ve tried to call, a couple of times, the SSA regarding my late husband’s benefits. HA!!! What a fucking joke. I can’t even wait for eternity, the recording just said “we’re so busy, we can’t even bother to have you wait. Try calling later in the month, and later in the week. <disconnect>”. I’ll have to check if there’s a local number.
  2. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Better than I have been lately. Nice morning, having early morning coffee on the porch.
  3. I didn’t go on to risperdal several years ago for the purpose of squashing a mixed state, but it is a very fast acting med. Not immediate results like the highly sedating prn meds, but I saw incredible results in my ocd/depression fog in less than three days. While there’s a chance you can stay on it a while, and I never had a problem with weight gain, there is a chance of elevated prolactin levels. My pdoc has said that it’s not meant to be taken long term, as in years.
  4. whatever the weather

    Stupid hourly forecast and stupid radar map show rain. Is it happening? No.
  5. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Lazy atm, quite frankly. So much that needs to be done, I’m not quite overwhelmed, just don’t want to do anything.
  6. You said you’ve just come out of a long depression, *and* your pdoc won’t lower the lithium... I think it would be very unwise to lower it on your own. Can you try physical therapy, a chiropractor, acupuncture (I’ve never tried that myself)? I have frequent lower back pain (no injury, it’s just something that has evolved over time), gentle long stretches does wonders. I’m sorry, I’m not trying to minimize your pain, just wondering if you could pursue a non-medication approach.

    Glad I’m seeing tdoc tomorrow. I’ve been slacking horribly in paperwork/probate/estate affairs, I know that’s wrong but I just have so many other things I want/need to do, and I’m mentally tired and emotionally void, unless you count anger, I just want to live my life without this over my head.
  8. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    I’ve been berating myself all day, because I *should* do this that and the other, especially yardwork, because today’s cooler, but I failed at being motivated to do anything. Finally decided this evening that a non-productive day will just have to be acceptable. Tomorrow’s another day, so hoping it’ll be better.
  9. I haven’t taken zyprexa personally, but it’s very well regarded for nipping mania in the bud. Can you ask for it? Even hypo can be difficult to control.
  10. Control the Cravings

    nm, apparently a post disappeared...
  11. Trapped on meds

    Not just s/e, but maybe just the wrong meds. So many of us have had to go through seemingly endless med changes, but I assure you, the right cocktail will feel like a miracle. Stay strong.

    Was sweltering here too, jt. Have you tried wetting down whatever clothes you sleep in, and having a fan blow on you? That’s how I slept last night, and it felt wonderfully cool.
  13. whatever the weather

    This is so fucked. Somewhere in the upper 90’sF, but the heat index was 106F today, and up to 110F tomorrow.

    Not your turn. Be the rebel. I am sorry for your loss, though. Eh. I think I’m bouncing between hypomania and mixed. The only way I can describe my head is like it’s filled with glass shards and it’s being stirred. Oldest is home visiting, so struggling really hard to keep calm.
  15. whatever the weather

    Fuuuccckkkk. Going to be 95-96F sat-mon. Thankfully fairly low humidity, and sunny, so maybe it won’t be so bad. Hahahahaha. Who am I kidding, it’s going to be hell.
