  1. it's hard to say if you just took it one night. i'd agree that 0.5 risperidone was calming to me as well, and made my head feel clear. i would hazard a guess that there was something else going on that resulted in your anxiety.

    i'm not big on eggs. i can get them down, especially if i've got hash browns or something to mix them with, but i try to avoid them on their own. i've never liked them much, but after my parents split up my dad made me a lot of scrambled eggs, usually undercooked and on the cold side by the time i got to them. i just remember choking them down and trying not to gag. what was your most recent big ticket purchase? say, $500+.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    feeling good right now, but last night ended up hard. i did a lot of thinking about ocd stuff and realized 1) i have more intrusive thoughts than i realized 2) they've been bothering me since i was 12 or so 3) i probably should start going back to seeing a tdoc and/or pdoc. ugh! i really thought i could wish my problems away, and that if i just kept taking my meds they'd never bother me again.

    i have, but i'm not caught up. I think i finished the first season and maybe started the second. the hockey boys have a very special place in my heart. what was the worst class you ever took? high school, university, work training, anything counts.

    hey fluent, maybe a plant that's a little more rewarding than a cactus might show some affection. spider plants are troopers and they grow fast. or maybe your love language is flowers? a little african violet action, perhaps? they're lovely and easygoing. excellent listeners. i feel pretty good. should i do homework? draw? fart around online? endless possibilities on this wild friday night.

    of course! it seems awfully self-centered to think we're the only things alive in this entire universe, no? i'm looking forward to first contact by the vulcan empire. what do you think happens after death?

    dj, i don't think she'll ever be the mother you should have had. i'm concerned about how the stress she's putting you under will affect your mental health. i urge you to weigh the costs versus rewards of being in contact with her. i'm feeling okay this morning. it looks like i'll be doing manual payroll at work, so i have to set up a spreadsheet to keep track of the remittances and all that good stuff. the $330 annual charge to add automatic payroll onto our accounting software doesn't really seem worth it when we only have 2 employees on payroll.
  10. i'm sorry you're having such a tough time lately, cake. night time is difficult for a lot of us here. make sure you reschedule to see your pdoc, it sounds like you could really use some help. i gently urge you to give the risperidone a chance. it helped my OCD a lot. i can promise you that 0.25 mg won't make you too sleepy or suck your motivation up. i would say you could even take it earlier than just an hour before bed, because it'll help calm you down during the difficult evening time, but of course i'm not your pdoc. looking at how bad things are for you right now, i doubt the risperidone could make things much worse. you deserve relief.

    maybe star trek: the next generation. i don't watch a lot of tv and the shows i like, i'm usually not caught up on. i'm slowly rewatching tng with my mum, but i'm having a hard time convincing myself that i have enough time to sit down and watch tv. do you like beer?

    sleepy, sipping coffee. i went to bed early last night and still felt like i'd been raised from the grave when my alarm went off.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    a little anxious. the bookkeeping part of my job has FINALLY began, though they pretty just much handed me a data file and the paperwork and told me to go wild. i know how to run the transactions, but some transactions are not as straightforward as they should be, and i'm having to piece certain things together based on historical transactions. the business has been run on a cash basis (recognize expenses/revenue when paid) up until now, and i get to transition it to accrual basis (uses receivables and payables). i'm pretty sure i've done everything right so far, but it's nerve-wracking to not have anybody nearby to check with. i can email the accountant, but she's not known for quick responses, and her advice is not cheap. doing reasonably well by reassuring myself that anything i fuck up can be fixed pretty easily, and that i'm competent in this field.

    my friend and i went to a salsa class about a year ago. i have absolutely no rhythm and not much coordination either, so it was a bit of a bust for me. it would have been better if i'd just been able to dance with my friend during the partnered stuff, but we had to rotate partners. i was also briefly in tap as a kid, but i hated it and didn't last long. what was the last party you went to?
  15. i take 0.75 mg risperidone now, but for a while i was taking 0.25 mg. i found it calming, and it gave me the ability to concentrate on what i was doing. if you have racing thoughts, it'll likely calm them down. i didn't find it made me sleepy, but it made it easier to get to sleep. i have virtually no side effects from it. give it a try, it's a good med. at this dose, you're unlikely to feel much in the way of side effects. it kicks in fast, and if you don't like it after taking it for a few days, you can stop taking it easily. let us know how you do!
