Just made myself a cup of coffee rather than tea, despite it being tea time. I used to be a fanatical tea drinker, but Abilify and quetiapine have changed my tastes to something sweeter. I think I must have put on weight during this episode, but I'll go on a diet later - no point in putting any extra pressure on myself at the moment.
I just hope this feeling lasts - I'll be devastated if I feel worse again tomorrow. Hopefully if I sleep again it will be fine - even if I don't have as much as 8 hours, every little helps. It was not getting to sleep until 0300 that was the real bugger. I thought I might read through these posts at some stage, but I'll leave that until I feel stronger in myself - I don't want to be reminded of how I've been feeling as it's too raw.
My hands are still sore, but Steamcream is marvellous. They don't itch as much as they did, or maybe I didn't scratch them because I was asleep. My elbows are rough and sore too, so I'll put the cream on them as well.
Tesco's are coming at 7 - I've a nasty feeling that I've only ordered milk and fags as I forgot to look at the order last night. Oh well - they're both essentials so it doesn't matter.
I spent 16 years in the RAF defending the Free World , then got bunged out unceremoniously for being bipolar. I and was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. Funny old world, isn't it?
