I was hopeful that the increase in my medication would be helping much better by now. It seemed to help when I started increasing. Maybe my body is used to it now but I’m still getting an overall benefit. I haven’t been though a whole bottle of it anyway, so not even a month.
I was hoping it would help with my apathy. I’m not finding that to be true. I don’t know if it’s my depression that is causing the apathy or the medications I’m taking. But sometimes, I literally do not know what to do with myself. I move from my computer, to the garden, maybe a load of laundry, back to computer, garden. Shouldn’t I be doing something else? I should be cleaning my entire house, doing some dishes, taking a shower? knitting, crochet, painting?
Instead what do I do? I ordered a new phone. It wouldn’t be a big deal except for I should have waited til I had the funds available. I just couldn’t wait til Monday. I guess I’ve always known that impulsive shopping was one of my vices. And I don’t have many. But I’m one to want to take off to Target, walmart, plant stores or thrift store. I am always looking to make my home better. Instead of using what I have I am out looking for more. Now I know it’s part of my bipolar disorder.
Anyway, I have a new phone now. Going to pick it up at the store shortly. I’m happy I’ll be able to take pictures because my phone has a cracked camera. Every picture I try to take is over exposed and looks too light. Hopefully husband wont be too mad.
Oh, I’m trying a new migraine medication. I don’t want to get my hopes up. Still, it’s been several days that I haven’t had to take something for a migraine so maybe it’s working. It’s one that you have to slowly increase the dose over the course of a month. Reports out are that this med is beginning to be used for bipolar disorder and depression too. Maybe it can help my overall functioning.
