One Step forward, two steps back

Posted 06-20-10 at 07:10 PM by ginniebean
When I quit my last job it took me a couple of false starts to get a new job. Actually I did get a new one, but they had no hours, so I was back to square one.

Then I got another one, but not enough hours and the amount would be very unpredictable.

Now, I have one I like, it's out of town so I need that car, but that three months off and my need for a better vehicle landed me in debt. Which I truly hate.

Says the cheshire cat, "Mean what you say, and say what you mean."

It is absolutely crucial to me that my friends accept me as I am unconditionally and so I present an authentic self perception. That perception is not at all static; it is dynamic. I see myself as being in a constant state of becoming. It takes at least a lifetime. Nothing can be clear cut positive/negative.

This afternoon, I had an appointment w/my neurologist. I wanted the opportunity to ask her if she had any objections to my taking a stimulant to alleviate some of the symptoms of my AD/HD.*

She had no problem w/me resuming Provigil, which is the stimulant my psychiatrist put me on earlier this year and subsequently took me off of after my stroke, and/or Vyvanse, which is another stimulant my old psychiatrist prescribed me late last year.

At the beginning of the year, I started seeing a new psychiatrist. He diagnosed me with OCPD and ascertained that it was my main issue. He said he wanted to focus on that first. My AD/HD would have to wait until my OCPD was more manageable. I was and had been self-medicating with cigarettes and coffee. Both contain stimulants. AD/HD is usually treated with stimulants and those come with their own set of side-effects.

When I seemed stable on my medicines, I had a stroke and after that,...
