I'm working two jobs this summer, and I've been out of work for about a month and a half taking a break trying to pull myself back together now that I am on new medication!

I took a lower dose of my seroquel last night (200mg ) so that I could get up early (7am instead of 11!) and I got ready for work.
I walked over to my neighbors house at 9am sharp and we drove to the house we would be cleaning that day (she cleans houses for a living and needed help on the big ones so I am working with her 3 days a week and the rest of the week/day at a drug store/pharmacy.)

Anyways! It went great. We stopped at Dunkin Donuts and I got an iced coffee before we started cleaning. I stayed positive the whole morning and cleaned for four hours alongside my neighbor.

I got home and changed into shorts and took my neigbhors dog for a walk (I do this every day as a favor to him, he has a Samoyed (google it, they are the best dogs!) and then got home and cleaned in preparation for my boyfriend arriving in an hour!

I am really glad that I am having a stable day despite being under medicated and I look forward to this evening and hope everything stays good.
I am very grateful to be back working as I am very low on money ($300 left in my bank account..)

I hope everyone else is having a good day and I am glad to share my happiness with all of you!

Hey voix,

Glad to hear the lower dose of seroquel seems to be helping? You sound miles better than last week, so that's great! I am so happy for you!! I think stable days are so worth celebrating so do something special for yourself! Keep us posted!

Today still going strong. Had a rough morning (got a Coolatta at Dunkin Donuts and it made me kind of sick to my stomach so I was sick the first hour of work and I let it kind of get to me..) but as soon as I got down to it and cleaned my butt off I forgot all about it and my day just got better and better. I
ve been awake for 9 hours now and I haven't had a mood swing yet. In fact I haven't had a mood swing in at least 2 days. I should start charting my moods so I can say "ive been moodswing free for ___ days now!" because that sounds so good to me. not "moodswing free for 2 hours... yay.... "
