I talked to my nurse. Just so you know. I am taking care of myself and being taken care of.

Glad to hear. I hope your nurse is being helpful.

She had little to offer but having these things on record is good. Just that fact that she didn't accuse me of having an eating disorder when I complained about the weight gain helped.

Small victories, right...it is sad how our faith in the health care profession has diminished to the point where lack of such an accusation constitutes "help".

I've been trying really hard to just take what my absentee doctor prescribed in order to demonstrate my compliance. So I haven't gone back to taking more of my old medication and thrown away all the time I've put in getting myself to fall asleep on the reduced dosage.

That said, I have the fear this has all made me hypomanic, and I've been rummaging through my old pill bottles for something to make me feel more normal. I have one of my emergency super strength pills left so am saving it, and when necessary am taking another drug that I quit because it made me lactate. It seems fine as a stopgap measure.

It is a good thing I am aware enough to help myself.
