Blue Saturday

Posted 02-23-08 at 11:09 AM by MonkeyGirl
I've been on/off Ritalin about every other day, from the beginning of February. Still, I can't make it work. I'm running out of meds soon too, then I won't even get to try.

I haven't found a way to solve the med. problem, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. (I wrote a post on this whole big problem in the forum on Ritalin.)

The meds have either been making me jittery or have had seemingly no effect at all so far today. Both are bad. Right now I'm jittery...

I'm feeling cold no matter what! It's been this way since Christmas sometime. Very odd, this too and how the meds don't work.

I've turned my head inside out to figure out what I've done differently that could possibly affect it. Taking supplements is one. ...Turning up the heat is another. Also, the past year I've seemed allergic to something/ everything. That's new too.

I haven't found an answer, nor a solution to my knee injury either. I've got one test scheduled soon, but I'm not holding my breath. Other tests are, well, waiting lists away...

One thing that might change though, is getting something to do in the daytime. I have, am, and will continue to be on sick leave. The Labour and Welfare service is getting me on a 12-week course - about what I'm still not really sure - starting "soon." Heh... It's all I know. I'm looking forward to it, regardless.

I told the woman there that I was concerned of how much I'd get out of it; me, no meds, and all. It's lasting from 8.30 a.m. - 2.30 p.m., every day. Much like a school day. And that means...
a) I'll be late (and have to come up with a lame excuse, to be carried out with enthusiasm) - every day.
b) I'll be bored, all day - every day.
c) I'll remember nothing from anything important in the end of the day - every day.
d) Everybody will dislike me and/or talk behind my back because I'm late, 22 years old and can't sit still, who on top of everything remembers nothing. Including homework and their names. Every day.

Hmm... I'll brave the rain/snow/wind/cold/wet and get a piece of daylight while it's here. Not that it's anything but grey. I can't see myself living up here much longer. The evening seriously stretches from 2 p.m. - 9 a.m.!
