I’m still here. I’ve been feeling a bit better over the past week. I tend to write more when struggling, when looking for answers, when in pain.
My psychiatrist added Prozac to my medication cocktail. It seems to be helping. Also, my work load is significantly less now. My industry is so tied in with education that we all get half-days for the next six-weeks. Lets be real, it is a big reason I took the job, haha. The lower stress levels at work also help significantly.
My complaint, low energy. I think what I feel is normal, or maybe as normal as bipolar me gets to feel. Concentrating and accomplishing tasks is still a struggle. Also, I am sleeping twelve to sixteen hours a day. Can’t I be better than normal? Can meds make me normal with a push towards happy?
Is everything fixed. No. Will it ever be? I doubt. But I am moving along, one sleepy step at a time.
