I’m trying really hard to just wrap up this week and then relax. And unfortunately that makes for really boring posts. Sorry kids.
Things at home are going well. Josh and I just hung out together last night watching tv. It was boring and nice all at the same time. We’ve been getting along really well for awhile now and it’s nice.
I started the work for my class already. I got the reading done and I’ve been going back over the first assignment to make sure I understand it before I start working on it. It shouldn’t be too hard – just a one page synopsis of a reading, and it’s all opinion. I just need to figure out when I’m going to do it. I’d like to have it done this weekend before I go back to work on Tuesday.
This degree will be a lot different than my first Master’s. This will be in person classes, a lot more assignments, and I know a lot of the people who will be teaching the classes so they know good and well just what kind of work I’m capable of. Kind of puts the pressure on.
I don’t seem to be minding pressure these days. I don’t seem to mind too much of anything really. I’m still incredibly mellow and really enjoying it. Even this morning – Josh’s alarm clock was just annoying the fuck out of me. I just got up and away from it and then when he came up to smoke I was able to sort of joke about it. It was good.
I’ve got the appointment with shrinky-poo this afternoon, which I’m sure will go just fine. This is just a check in to make sure the meds are still working right. I think everything is pretty good except for not having a whole lot of extra energy. And that seems to be coming back a little bit, so I’m guessing maybe it’s still just my body adjusting to the new chemicals and routines. Overall I’d say I’ve been very happy with the Depakote.
I do still have twitches of the tardive dyskinesia from the Geodon. It actually spread to my right arm. It’s only noticeable when I’m standing with my arms at my sides. I’ll try to remember to tell her about it today, but it doesn’t really bother me. My face is getting better, slowly, which is good. Just kind of makes me wonder how long this is going to last.
I’m hoping to be able to get a lot of stuff done over this long weekend. I’ve got quite a few chores to catch up on, the ever present laundry and errands, a graduation party to go to, and a lot of time to spend with Josh. I’ve missed him quite a bit lately.
