How are the meds treating you?

Awww, sorry about your post It's so frustrating when that happens!
I'm glad work was a bit better today! Maybe coming here and talking about it helped a tiny bit? To release some of the tension building up?

I think my meds are going a lot better for me than they seem to be going for you. You've mentioned not too long ago how you felt your meds weren't really helping. grrrr!
Did your doctor start you on a low dose? Are they going to titrate back up again?
My pill lady is awesome and didn't make me titrate again. She gave me 20mg instant release adderall twice a day...and when I went back to see her, I requested for her to give me an additional 20mg for the late afternoon as needed, and she had no issue doing so for me (haha...and now that I've asked for it, I've not used a single late afternoon dose! ).
They are still helping me...but things aren't as well as they were during the first week or 2 of taking them. I've slowed way back down now...I'm not getting as much accomplished again, haven't been working on my apartment, having a hard time getting up and going, sometimes have a hard time focusing on 1 thing at a time.

I think my meds are working just as they're suppose to be working. I do feel a sense of lightness when I'm on them...I'm not so bogged down with muck and mud in my mind...though to be honest, I do wish the meds did a bit more. Provided a bit more punch...gave me a bit of energy or something.
I think I need to be careful in such thoughts though...last thing I want to do is start looking for ways to get my meds to do more for me then they're intended and to get addicted to the damned things.

This is part of why I quit my meds in the first place. I don't like the way they cause me to feel. Like I've got to walk a fine line or I'm going to become a druggy xP. /sigh

DH and I have two little rescued foster lambs. They are nearly three weeks old. We have had them since day five.

I think I am dealing with an increase in stress, but some of it has been produced by positive changes... Big, life and relationship things. Work is a bit emotionally unstable atm. I haven't been medicated for years now and I'm used to compensating with strategies, but I can't keep up.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I waited too long to order my running shoes, and the model that I want is no longer available.

Now I actually have to go to the store and try on the new model to make sure they haven't changed the design in a way that makes them unusable for me. And they are around twice as expensive because the old model is gone.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Am I "selfish" for missing Ebony so much?

And is it a delusion to be convinced that Ebony could read the word "police"?

Missing someone we love is a very human thing. It is not selfish.

I don't think cats can read the written word, but they can certainly read our
body language and pick up on it when we are tense or worried.

So if you were worried that she'd be upset by talking or writing about the police,
what she was picking up on was your emotions.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

I've decided to go to see my uncle. I'm so worried about leaving fuzzling though. Hubby said if she gets too stressed out I can always just get the next flight back.

My parents are also trying very hard of course to convince me not to travel. Well, my dad is. Even though they'd be happy to see me they don't want me to leave fuzzling. I just want to tell them to **** off but I do feel a bit bad for not going when they were in the hospital.

And fuzzling is ill again. She's been so tired all day and threw up everything she ate. Hopefully it's just a stomach bug and sg LL be fine soon.

Feel like a ghost. Everybody sees straight through me like i'm not even there. I don't matter to anybody. My life is devoid of any sense of importance.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

Wow. You just described what it's like to be a female software engineer!

But seriously. That's statistically probably not true. I know I've felt that way before as well. Many times. And it turns out that my mental issues were scaring people from interacting with me. Scaring or confusing them. Or I was pushing them away. That has happened.

On it's own life is pretty devoid of purpose. You kinda have to find your own purpose. Even if that purpose is to just be happy and not feel how you are feeling. Which I know is possible.
