I did fall into a deep nap after I returned the children from school. But then I was able to wake up, make dinner and interact with my family. This was a nice change from recent days.
Took the appropriate meds at the appropriate time today. Did not use the happy light today (but I did on Monday and Tuesday).
I will call the doc tomorrow and see if I should be evaluated for sinus something. Or at least to report the headache/sleepiness. That increase in sleepiness seems like the sort of thing I ought to mention. But unfortunately (or fortunately) it occurred at a time when my meds were not quite right.
But once again I feel that I am living in the land of too many variables. It is getting darker and colder and grayer outside. I have not been exercising. I have been eating a steady all-carb diet all the time (the simpler the better). I am sure that being off the bupropion was not a stellar thing either.
It's a theme and variations. I will be on and compliant for some time and then not. And things will be going well for some time and then not. Stupid theme. Stupid variations.
I will choose at this time to blame the sleepiness on the sudden absence of bupropion in my system. Apparently I might also be able to blame the headaches on the sudden absence of bupropion in my system. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) lists headache as a possible symptom of coming off bupropion.
So here is the story of why the meds got messed up this time: I forgot that the pharmacy told me I was refilling too soon last time (becuase of my accidental overdosing for ten days). So I went to my clinic pharmacy instead. That took me out of the loop for automatic refill. So I didn't receive a call when I was six days away from running out. And there was not a prescription waiting for me.
I am going to sign up for the mail-order pharmacy. It worked well for me in the past (except that sometimes I would have way too many pills because I had not been compliant for some time and then I felt guilty).
Not feeling particularyl me-like at the moment. But we all have those days, neh? I mean really, when was the last time you felt like me? Ha.
Grateful Crap: pill minder full of all the appropriate medications.
took meds in the morning
that is all; but it is a start
