On Friday, I went and saw the new psychiatrist with Mental Health Partners, the Medicaid mental health provider. And guess what? Surprise, surprise, he confirmed both my Bipolar and ADD diagnoses, as well as PTSD. I was so afraid that he was going to change up all my meds, but he actually did just what I was hoping: He increased my Wellbutrin to 450 mg and then as an added bonus he upped my Adderall to 25 mg!!
I’ve only been on the 450 mg of Wellbutrin for two days but I have a renewed sense of hope. I’m sure the medication hasn’t kicked in yet, but I know that it’s going to and I’m going to feel better. It’s just a short waiting game. I just need to keep doing all the good things I’ve been doing, like daily walks, writing, applying for jobs, and connecting with people, and soon there will be sweet relief from the black cloud of depression.
I also got a great night’s sleep last night and that makes all the difference in the world, doesn’t it? Yes it does. I only had to pee once (BONUS!) and I recall thinking as I slept that gosh this is a good sleep!! Do you ever do that?? Ohhhh it felt GOOD!! I have been struggling with night sweats and last night I was not hot at all. Oh the tender mercies…
So I have ZERO going on this week…I’m not making any promises, but there may be a cleaning in store for this dusty apartment. I don’t know, we will just have to see….I think it would be good for my outlook. Ok I am going to commit to trying to do it! There. It’s amazing how I write stuff in this blog and then I feel accountable to do it.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I’m thinking of you! Yes, YOU! Tell me how you are and what’s new! You KNOW I love your comments!!! Stay in touch! Peaches, y’all!
