The weekend has come and gone…
I went to visit my mom and brother this weekend. Me and mama didn’t get in one real argument, her and my brother got along as well. This is the first time in a long time that I’ve been able to go visit my mom and brother and not want to leave the same night I got there. I’m not sure if it’s because of my new medication (abilify) or because of the good circumstances. It was such a relaxing weekend. So glad to be home though.
I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow at 11am. Kind of curious about what the doctor will say. I feel so much better than I did the last time I saw him. My racing thoughts have completely went away. I am so glad that I’m off of lithium and that I found abilify. Although I do wake up depressed occasionally, it’s nothing compared to what it use to be. I was stuck in my head all day. I couldn’t have a conversation with anyone without getting distracted by my thoughts. It was terrible. I could sit in one spot for hours and just think about a million different things. It crippled me. Lithium isn’t for everyone.. that’s for sure. If you are curious what it was like, read my first blog post.
Tomorrow the new work week begins. I’m looking forward to going back to work. I am going to be so busy. I am excited. It’s so nice to actually like your job to the point that you like going to work most days. This is definitely a first for me.
On another note… I bought some CBD oil without THC. I took a dose earlier today and I really think I could go to sleep without taking ambien. I’ve heard really good stuff about CBD so I cannot wait to see how my body responds to it. So far, so good.. My body is definitely relaxed. It’s nice to have something to help you relax at night.
Well I am about to do a little reading and then going to get ready for bed. 4:30 comes pretty early. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Have a good night!
