I missed an intake thing for a bipolar study on Thursday. I thought it was Friday. I plan to participate in a study of bipolar at the University of Minnesota. They are running two different studies right now.
One study is an attempt to test for bipolar or major depressive disorder with a blood test. I don't qualify for that one because I have not been in a depressed mood state for at least 2 weeks. I told them I would rather not become eligible for that one. The other is just kind of a big information gathering one for future study.
There have been a number of cases of forgettiness in recent days.
Trouble remembering words I want to say... typically a problem when I am hungry or tired. Seems more prevalent lately, although I don't think I am more tired or hungry than usual.
Trying to ask younger boy where his glasses were I cam up with, "What the eyeball?"
I got lost a few times. Turned around really. On my way from my house to my mom's house. Neither of them have moved in the past decade and a half. I can be forgiven the confusion on the way home due to horrific rerouting around road construction. Thank goodness for Google Maps.
Confession: I am not sure how good I have been taking my meds. I plan to institute pill minder as a way of tracking this. I have been cocky since going down to a single medication once a day.
Could this be a result of fuzziness or perhaps a cause of fuzziness. The world may never know.
Have joined Weight Watchers to do a better job attending to my dietary and exercise needs. A friend has joined as well and we should see one another semi-regularly which is always helpful.
Got glowing feedback from my Etsy customer on the cuff I sold. Still have not caught up with taking pictures of my cuffs. Oh, because I don't have a good way to upload the pictures. Dang. Still even if I just use my iphone that would be something.
Trying to do a little bit of everything today: cleaning and decluttering, blogging, relaxing, homework, and eating delicious Ethiopian food.
