I'm a *****. Almost reached for the zyprexa because I have so much anxiety. It's not "hospital level" so I wont. I'm so done but meds don't help. They make me quiet but not happy. I feel this meeting with H's T will end our relationship. We'll see. I feel like crying okay I am crying. I don't know to talk to him now or wait the 19 days.

Caught pinkeye at work. It's so gross and uncomfortable. I know who I got it from, because I ran into them in the bathroom and they had a raging case going. I couldn't believe they were at work!!! Sure, it's not airborne contagion, but it IS extremely contagious and who knows what surface had been touched after they touched by their eyes? My inner germaphobe as been activated. So I spent half the day yesterday going to urgent care and getting the Rx drops (my pharmacy was out). Some day off! It's doing a little better today, but I'm just going to call in tomorrow if the strong urge to rub my eyes doesn't go away. Besides I look like hell. And if I were a customer, I sure wouldn't want to see or deal with some employee running around with it(!) Ugh.

Sorry for the rant, but honestly, it never should have happened.

But in good news, I got a call from a job I applied for. I need to call them back today (was just too frazzled yesterday, and they gave their hours for today, so it seemed a fine option).

Iím at the max dose of rexulti (4mg), so we canít increase it.

I just remember Seroquel giving me a severe depression and worsening my cholesterol, and Latuda causing even more problems than Seroquel. Then Abilify did nothing. But Iím concerned about having really bad Seroquel-like negative effects when I have a huge project due at work by May 1st. Thanks for your support

Sending supportive vibes. I hope it goes better then expected.

My family went to the Olive Garden to celebrate Easter and my brotherís birthday. I had an okay time....I was preoccupied. One of my relatives said some things to me last night that really disturbed and hurt me. I greatly wish I wasnít a highly sensitive person and that things rolled off my back. Itís just not worth it. Iím going to work on changing that.

We took my daughterís beagle to the kennel for 5 days. He was so excited when he got there (thatís a good endorsement). I love him but Iím not sleeping well and him getting me up at 2 A.M. isnít helping things. Plus, Iím knee deep in caring for mom and brother with some heavy projects going on so I need a small break from caring for pets. It feels nice.

I hope everyone who celebrates Easter has a good and peaceful day.

I'm so tired. I did so many things today and yet my husband is sleeping and I'm not, but it's only 9 pm. Tomorrow my family's Easter gathering is at my Dad's/brother's house. I volunteered to make Scalloped Potatoes and Kohlrabi au Gratin, carrot salad (with fresh pineapple and raisins) and my Dad's birthday cake. I just got done making the cake (see attached) but make the other two dishes tomorrow. They're easy other than all of the peeling.

The cake is an almond flavored white cake filled with raspberry preserves and almond flavor cream cheese icing. Decorated with raspberries, blackberries, and toasted almond slices. It's a three layer cake. My sister requested this as something different than our usual desserts.

Iíve found Geodon great for psychosis and mixed symptoms. Have you tried that. Hope you feel better soon.

Been a crappy day, just very emotional and with feelings that someone is out to get me. It isn't paranoia or an episode, but just everything feels like it is falling apart. I have like $2 to last me till May 3rd, and I don't know what to do. Even if I find a job, I would need gas and food to get me through the days. Either way I lose.

I feel like I am at the end of my rope, and I am fighting all these evil forces.

I hope Easter is a better day for me.

Last night I took 6 mg of Clonazepam. It was the only dose that enabled me to eat. Canít keep doing that but at least I got some nutrients in.

Off to my parents for my family Easter gathering. Doubt I will be able to eat as I canít take extra meds as I have to drive. It still should be fun. I will just have to ignore the nausea.
