Wow, I haven't slept more than a grand total of maybe 8 hours in the last 6 days. I know it's a temp side effect of the Abilify, I've been through this before, but I don't remember it being this strong. I went to the store and kept having to backtrack to get things I'd missed on the aisle. I think they probably had security following me because I was acting so erratic.
I just can't focus. I think I may be hallucinating as well. Is this common with sleep deprivation? I almost tipped my minivan because there was something in the street but when I looked back there was nothing there. No more driving until this settles down thats for sure.
I'm talking a mile a minute, and my house is finally getting clean. I know the pdoc is going to say its a side effect and to take the ativan and hang in there til it passes, but this is getting a little uncomfortable, especially the inability to sleep. I don't feel tired, just out of it.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
You just have to accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
