I’m agitated, tired, wired, energetic, can’t sleep. Not sure if this is dysphoria and I’m still up (I don’t feel up anymore) or whether maybe this has turned into a mixed episode. Is that even possible?
I wonder if my olanzapine would help. Seriously thinking of taking some as my pdoc awhile back said I could use it if I needed to but I haven’t had any for 3 months so I assume that advice still stands.

Try it out. Won't hurt, if your pdoc gave you the green light.

I think I’ll give it a try. I feel like I don’t know which way is up or down at the moment. My brain is doing strange things to me.

Yes, I’ll keep on keeping on. I will conquer this thing eventually (I don’t mean I’ll be without it, I’ll just be in control of it).

I use mine when I'm agitated/overwhelmed, it's like I just can't find the 'off' switch. I go for months without it too.

Hope you feel better in the morning.

Doing better today actually. I think the incredible weather we are having is helping me. Record high November temperatures ever recorded. Love it.

I'm glad you're feeling better, but highest ever recorded temperatures are not a good thing :? Sorry to burst your bubble, I'm just a jerk :?

Hahaha! I’m just a super suntanned, sun bleached haired sun loving kind of gal. Always have been, will always be (until I’m menopausal and having hot flushes).

It seems like you're a bit up. I don't think you generally find climate change good or funny... But maybe I slept badly and I'm more serious or something.

I’m probably up cause I definitely don’t find climate change funny. I fear for the future of mankind. I guess I’m feeling pretty optimistic at the moment.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Call your pdoc in the morning. Did you take the zyprexa?
