In order to decrease the amount of stress in my life I am attempting to actually record future events on a calendar that I have access to regularly. Thus, the smart phone. For some time I couldn't figure out why the events I was entering would just disappear. So I would enter them again. Same thing.
Today, I discovered that my phone is not actually smarter than I am. It thought I wanted to post my personal doctor's appointments on a shared work calendar. Happily, I did not include anything that could be used for extortion. And I successfully relocated the events to my own personal calendar. Sheesh.
I think that today I will schedule a bunch of appointments that I have been putting off. I think that will help deal with stress as well. Now that I can keep track of them. On my own calendar.
Had to reschedule with psychiatrist. My work schedule changed. But I just started taking the lowest therapeutic dosage of lamotrigine so I will have more information from him when I go see him in September. I should also find out what his name is. Calling him Dr. Psych seems like it might be kinda rude.
Also, I remembered all kinds of things that I wanted to ask the OFP (Once and Future Psychologist) when I visited last week.

meds: 450mg bupropion, 150mg venlafaxine, 100mg lamotrigine*
*last night after my first 100mg dosage I fell asleep FAST. I pretended that I could read, but I zonked out with my unopened e-reader on my chest. At least I didn't drop it on my head.
