Last Thursday morning I added Latuda to my medication regime, as prescribed the previous day by my doctor. Since then I’ve been sinking back into depression, and it’s unpleasant. With a lot of psych meds the side effects go away after a couple of weeks, so I’m staying on it a little while longer to see if things improve. Obviously I’m going to quit if I get suicidal! But hopefully that won’t be an issue.
In addition, I seem to be developing a UTI, so tomorrow I’ll be going to the doctor.
I feel like shit and I’m avoiding my friends and it really blows. I just want to feel normal again, or at least my version of normal.
In other news:
— Saturday I took my niece to our hometown’s Pride celebration. Middle school lesbian drama is hilarious, I am sad to say. Awesome Niece hugged a friend we ran into, and the friend’s girlfriend got jealous, and I did a really good job of not cracking up. We had a good time, though. I got the Valkyrie a trans pride bracelet a friend was selling at her booth. After the celebration we stopped at a popsicle restaurant nearby. They have dozens of flavors, many of which are pureed fruit bars. I had a strawberry basil and it was amazing. Then we met up with my mom for lunch at a little bistro. Tempeh sandwich with granny apples, goat cheese, and spinach. My hometown has the best food!
— I’m enrolled in school and will be meeting up with my professor on Friday to make plans. I’m happy about this.
— I’ve started knitting a sweater for myself. I deserve one. Not sure if I’ll stick with the pattern I’m using, though. It’s kind of annoying me. Maybe I’ll make one to match the one I made a friend last winter. I liked that pattern.
I hurt and I’m said and I’m going back to bed. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
