So too finish about my day…
I saw the doctor and he took me off the Abilify! In celebration the first thing I did was come home and dump them down the toilet and flush them! No more, no more. And I'm doing better so he didn't put me on another medication to replace it. I'm so relieved about that.
Now it's time to work on getting the weight off of me that I've gained. Back to bicycle riding now!
So it turns out that my hypomanic episode was brought on by the prednisone that I was taking for my sinus infection. Today was my last day of it and I'm glad even though it made me feel good. There were too many other issues with it, like messing with my blood pressure. Being finished with them is a good thing.
My psychiatrist was not happy to hear about the prednisone because it does affect mood. So I go back in a month because he's going to keep a close eye on me and my moods. He may have to put me on something to replace my Abilify. I hope not.
Tomorrow I go see my therapist. I'm not sure what's that's going to entail since I don't remember what I've done in the past 2 weeks other than this past weekend. I really don't want to deal with a hardcore session.
Today turned out to be really hot, almost 90 degrees out. We've actually got the AC running in the bedroom because it's too warm to sleep tonight without it. I hate the heat. While I love spring because of all the new life and growth I don't like the heat at all.
I actually got to take a nap this afternoon and really sleep! What an amazing difference after all this insomnia and hypomania. To be honest I'm actually going to go to bed very shortly. It's been a good day for the most part ~ but I'm worn out.
Thanks to everyone who reads this, I appreciate it. (((HUGS)))
