Druggie 4 Life: Day 2

I keep checking myself and trying to figure out what these drugs are doing to my head. Obviously it takes time to have the full effect. So far besides being kind of nauseous.. I guess I can kind of see it taking the edge off. I barely got mad at anyone yesterday. This could be the end of ranting forever.

I think it was wearing off at night though. The other day I had to leave work a little early and pick up the kid from football, then drive him to basketball, then pick him up again. I forgot the listing the wife sent by accident. I got him to everything fine since I had put the address I did not know into my phone. However I forgot what time the pickup from Basketball was. I asked the brain dead child and he said 9:30. In hindsight this was a mistake. Soooo.. I was a half hour late picking him up. The coach called the wife and dropped him off.

So I was a little annoyed about the situation but not too bad. I apologized on the phone for forgetting. So I get home and she has her cell phone and wants to show me the email she sent. I said don't bother I know you sent the right time. Then she is like grabbing my shoulder and trying to force me to look at it. So I got pretty angry and yelled a bit about "Do not touch me!" blah blah blah. Only real angry time all day though.

I think I can focus a little more too... maybe have a little more energy. Not sure yet. Seems like it though. Anyway we will see. Have not heard from any therapists yet. If I do not hear by tomorrow I will call the psychiatrist back and ask her if she had a chance to find anyone yet.

Look, the space invasion and laying on of hands is something that deserves a negative response. That has nothing to do with your flaws; it has everything to do with the other person's flaws.

Self-criticism is fine but don't overdo it!

I am not really criticizing myself for my reaction.. just more of a clinical observation...

Right! Seemed reasonably empirical in retrospect. :)

I'm very impressed and proud of you for following through on this. Try the meds for a while - if you don't like the effect they can be adjusted or you just stop.

btw 11 on Minnesota for tonight. you may need extra meds when I beat you this week. :)

If you want to take the prescribed dose, get a pill splitter from walgreens. they're like 3 bucks.

I think I am going to let it ride... the side effects are not bad.. and the dose is going to be 10mg ... she just wanted to ramp me up slow...
