It was a long and trying week before spring break. Now I am on spring break and I am quite relieved to have the reprieve. Thursday there was some excitement at school in which a student really amped up the disrespect and disruption and needed to be removed from the class.
It was not the sort of thing that would make for good drama on an uplifting made-for-tv drama. Some idiot just decided to act like a jerk and announce his general lack of self-control to the entire class while they were trying to take a test.
I managed to work off a lot of the adrenaline by volunteering to be the one to chase down an administrator by stalking the halls double-time.
I feel like I am a bit on the edge of anhedonia and/or the traditional spring hypomania. I was able to shake off the incident with the student in a way that seemed oddly healthy. I am not having negative emotional flashbacks to the incident. I am just mentally pissed off at the ordeal. Is it because I don't care that much (anhedonia) or because I am not anywhere near my Depressive phase and perhaps swinging toward manic?
I certainly have the energy levels.
I am trying hard not to tackle EVERyTHING while I am home alone during the week.
I have used my powers for good instead of evil to help a friend move.
Over weekend helped with a moving sale. Then to pick up furniture at IKEA. Then moved bed from her house to mine... so I could demolish aging and rickety bunkbed and replace with much more solid captain's bed.
My house is now full of half-built and half-demolished furniture. There is no room to stand. And I am not going to take care of it all right now today.
I am presenting something at my daughter's school tomorrow for Star of the Week. I am trying to remember that I am having a spring break and give my self a spring break. Ugh.
So I am going to take a little rest here and put my feet up and read, I think. Later today I'd like to write.
I missed seeing Psych NP in March. NOw I will have to see her in April. I had gotten discombobulated on my medication while daughter was in hospital. Threw all of my routines out of whack and missed a few days but I am not sure if the days were consecutive or how many days I actually missed (may have only been one or two)
But err on the side of caution. So I went back to a smaller dosage of lamotrigine (having to ramp up rather than risk a reaction) and I have remained at the lower dose so I can see if it is effective dosage for right now.
That way when I see her I can let her know.
Umm... I think that will be all.
