I worked on preparing for my cat's recovery this morning then picked her up from the vet. Her cone came off. Had to watch some videos to figure out how to get it back on. She's finally sleeping and I'm exhausted. Can't rest. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon. Also went to the pharmacy and picked up meds. Will take tomorrow off except for cat litter duty.

Like bpforever1, I will also try to cut down on my food intake. I am currently eating a lot of junk food.
Like bpforever1 I too feel that the psychosis has dissipated. I too was feeling very strangely for awhile. I don't talk to myself that much anymore and am feeling more in tune with reality.
Feeling depressed and anxious since afternoon.

I received my new henna dye from Amazon today. I only dyed my hair once so far. Henna dye takes multiple applications to look ok. I might dye my hair tonight. The sides are fading already. I ate yogurt and drank tea this morning. I ate orange chicken with rice- small portion for lunch. For dinner, I will eat vegetables and drink tea. I like green tea and black English tea. I am trying to watch what I eat. I did not exercise for two days but am eating less. I lost five pounds since I started eating less. I need to continue to eat less and move more. It is not easy. However, I am developing a double chin and my belly is jelly. So, I think it is wise to lose weight slowly. I am hoping at my next weight check-in I will be five pounds less than usual. The clinic checks my weight monthly.


Today, I washed five loads of clothes. I feel good about this. My clothes were smelly and dirty. I also vacuumed my apartment.



I took a shower and washed my hair. Tonight it will take me about six hours to dye my hair. I never follow instructions but developed my own plan to dye my hair with henna. I liked the henna organic dye in Asia. It was decent. Now, in the states the henna dye comes in powder or some liquid in really small bottles. It is cumbersome. I will see the results tomorrow.


I am doing well. I feel good. I am at my parents' house again. I don't have internet service in my apartment because I don't need it. There is a business office but I'm not interested in using public wifi.


I also want to work on sleeping less. Right now, I sleep about ten or more hours a day. I tried waking up earlier today but could not do it.



I am happy about myself these days. I think the psychosis is gone for now. I am doing more tasks and taking care of myself better than before. I am hoping the hair dye does not turn my hair a weird color but we shall see.

I accomplished some things today: showered, went to bible study, picked up the dog from the kennel, grocery shopped and put up groceries, went to church and got dinner for my family. Iím now reading a really good book called You are a Bada$$ how to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life by Jen Sincero. Itís changing my perspectives.

My plans for tomorrow:

1. Clean 2 rooms
2. Run 12 errands (they tend to pile up...I dislike doing them).
3. Work on my Perfectionism Workbook
4. Meditate/affirmations/visualization
5. Walk dog at park

Warm wishes to all.

I went to the dentist, took care of my cats, cleaned off my counters and relaxed with a game. Today I go back to the dentist for a cleaning. I'm exhausted from all this running around. Once I'm home, I just want to rest. I think next week I'm going to cancel my medical appointment. I've done too much this week. I'm beyond burnt out. I had a nightmare tonight that everything was out of control. It gave me a headache.

I made it to my cleaning. I'm glad I got that out of the way. Next week is my mammogram. I think I will keep the appointment. This evening I started cleaning litter boxes. I have a few to go. Once I'm done, I'll play my game with my sister. Hope everyone is doing well.

I dyed my hair this morning. It looks fine now. I am going to buy some more of this henna dye. It took me six hours though.


I washed my clothes, blankets, pillows, and comforter. It took me about five hours. I am slowly whittling down the amount of laundry I had.


I cleaned my apartment and vacuumed again. I cleaned the toaster oven too. I also cleaned the bathtub.


I am doing well although I got a splinter in my finger this morning cleaning. I will have my mother take it out.



I am going out tomorrow with my mother. I am happy.
