This post covers July 18-20. I was lazy about posting, but well aware of the passage of time. So that was good. I did finally (on July 17) schedule the appointments that I had been putting off (they could both be done online and it was super easy) and also ordered my refill of bupropion.
It has been unseasonably cool this summer, for which I am grateful. The plan was to get a car with air conditioning but that has taken a back burner... probably in part because of the cooler weather. I am also not driving much. Which is nice.
Went to sculpture garden with children and my mom. Spent less time there than expected. Traffic was terrible. I was low energy, but it was fun to watch the children running around and around and around. She watched them while I went to get my first set of allergy injections. No hideous reactions. Which is nice. I'm just getting treated for trees and dust.
I totally flaked out on a friend-- was supposed to see her after doctor's appointment. But instead I put 3yo to bed and promptly fell asleep. Need to reschedule that. Doh!
I was supposed to go to a matinee with a friend but that didn't work out. Instead we tried out Little Szechuan's new Hot Pot (fondue only) menu. It was awesome. Really. Also, laughed a lot. Which is good. Because it helps to stave off the Sad for me and she is going through nasty nasty divorce from someone who would not be believable as a fictional character. (Believed a family trip to a war-zone with a child diagnosed with an anxiety disorder would be a fine plan... so fine that he forced the decision to go to an emergency trial!)
During the day I think I slept a lot. Spouse took elderboy to see Shakespeare in the park. Century College was doing As You Like It. Turns out he liked it quite well. So they are attending Julius Caesar next week.

took meds; very close to being on the proper dose of everything now.
Currently: 450 mg bupropion and 3 pills of the venlafaxine (can't remember the dose)
Hmmm... continued feelings of normalcy are pretty awesome
