I know I haven’t been doing a lot of actual journal posts but that’s because I’ve done so little in my life. I pretty much work, sleep, and take a shower every 1-2 business days. I’m actually still glad I cut my hair short because it’s so much less to manage. My depression is really taking a hold on my energy levels. I’m not as active at work, either, and I just sleep most of the day away once I’m home. I understand I should be getting up and taking a nice walk outside to get those beautiful sun rays, but the idea of getting out of my bed sounds worse than it actually is. So, no. Also, I recently started on a new medication, the same kind my older brother takes, and the random zoomies I get are quite comical. This happened with my last medication I took so I’m not sure if that’s just my body being normal or if that is just an average side effect. Either way, I was in the kitchen/living room area of our house while my roommate was on the phone with the water company because our water bill was over $400 last month and is now $300+ this month and I felt that familiar shiver in my back. Then I had so much energy it was like I couldn’t contain myself. I threw the jacket of my hood up, moon walked around the couch, and zoomed back into my room. I felt like I really just wanted to yell for no reason and then about 15 minutes later I was back to normal. This usually happens about once a day. On my last medication, it progressed to about an hour or two a day and I would snap my fingers, tap my toes, and talk over my words. I probably should have mentioned that side effect to the doctor but I can never remember to bring it up.
And that’s how I’m doing so far. No real update. Just on new meds, fighting over a large water bill because the two of us are certain the leak meter is messed up (we already had someone come check for a leak), and I’m sleeping all day. Maybe I’ll have more to share next time. Until then, I hope everyone has a good day. I’m going to try and enjoy my day off to fullest of my abilities: AKA sleep and Animal Crossing!
