Well it's been a nutty week for me and I'm sorry I haven't been on as much. It's been the last week of the semester and I've been grading portfolios like a maniac *grin* and stressing like crazy -- therefore the mood swings have kicked up. Hooray. But I saw my doc on Wednesday and she's put me back on Abilify, which I'm really nervous about
since it made me manic this summer. But she thinks if she puts me on a lower dose it will help with the mood swings without making me manic. I am hopeful. So that puts me at : Lamictal 200, Luvox 150, Abilify 5. I'm still down so many drugs -- I was at 7 psych drugs at my highest, plus 2 for my thyroid. I was a drug-taking machine.
But the semster is now over, grades are turned in.
I treated myself to a movie yesterday afternoon while my daughter was at preschool, and today my husband and I tackle fun things like housecleaning and paying the bills before we take off for my in-laws for 6 days.
Please everyone, check in, let us know how you're doing in this stressful, emotional time of year, and I hope you all have amazing Christmases!
