State of the Alex

It’s been a few days since I posted an update about where my head’s at.  So here we are.  I was doing pretty well for a good stretch of time, but then yesterday I fucked it up by forgetting my meds.  Stupid.  I’m back to normal now, but there was a rough period.  In addition, my BFF is upset with me for reasons I don’t know, so I’ve spent rather a lot of time crying my eyes out wondering what I did wrong.  My appetite has been decreased, the same as it’s been since I started the Saphris, but last night and this afternoon there was quite a bit of chocolate because chocolate helps with emotional turmoil.  At least I’m not shoveling junk food in my face hole the way I was on the last two anti-psychotics.  No weight loss yet, but I expect to see some in the next couple of weeks.  Well, assuming my metabolism hasn’t slowed to a crawl.  Guess I’ll have to wait and see.  (Pun intended!)

Emotional upsets aside, my baseline state has been fairly calm, happy, and productive.  Hell, today I felt like shit from missing my meds, and I still knocked a bunch of tasks off my to-do list and planned my next weaving project.  I’m pleased about that.

Okay, time to do a little spinning.  But maybe dinner first…
