Starting marriage counseling later today. I don't have much hope that it will change anything. Haven't been happy for awhile now. My husband is verbally and emotionally abusive. I just want to cry. 16 years is enough for me. I don't know how to tell him it's over. I'm afraid he will hurt himself if I leave. That's one of the reasons I haven't left yet. My p-doc wants me to leave. She is worried for my safety. I don't think he would ever hit me. But his anger is scary at times. All IOP has done is open my eyes to how unhappy I am with my marriage. It seems like everyone in the group is having some sort of relationship issue. He is the reason I am in IOP. Otherwise I would of ended up IP. Sometimes I wonder if I should be IP. It would get me away from him for a while. What to do?

My little cold turned into a nasty sore throat and aggravated asthma. I've spent the last days in bed trying to rest my way back to health. I may have to give in and go to doctor tomorrow or the next day But it's not that bad and the doctor is a long way (an hour) from my nice warm bed.

My sleep is all messed up and has been for a few weeks. Tonight I fell asleep at 10 even though I fought it. I woke at 11:30 and am wide awake. I knew that would happen if I fell asleep early.

Oh well. There's only up from this point.

I agree itís an acquired taste. Blagh! My parents are from Europe and every Christmas my mum and aunts make hundreds of prune filled coffee cakes. Thankfully the other goodies make up for it.

Interesting. "Povidla" in Russian is a generic term for any thick fruit filling (or spread for that matter) - my favorite growing up was plum povidla, a little acidic with intact thin plum skins and some pulp retaining its shape.

Today was not that great for me. I couldn`t get out of bed I finally got out of bed to eat at around 1 in the afternoon. I ate then went back to bed and stayed there until I got up to take a shower . It`s been like this lately I have a hard time getting out of bed. I have difficulty with getting motivated to do anything. It`s my depression I know.

I saw my pdoc an hour ago. He is pleased with my progress. As acne almost gone only issues were sleep and high blood pressure. He increased my nightly Seroquel to 75mg and recommended I see my general practitioner about BP. If needed there are meds I can take but I REALLY hope it doesnít get to that. My pdoc said at least for now I must remain on Geodon (most likely cause) since itís the first med that has ever stabilised me and crushed psychosis.

I also donít want to increase Seroquel. On 50mg I tend to get 3-5 hours max so I see his point, and without it I just donít sleep. Tried other meds. Nothing works. I just donít want to put on weight. Havenít really so far but in the past higher doses packed it on.

The good bit was the conversation we had about my psychosis and his experience of it, as well as mine of course. He is a great doctor who genuinely cares about me. He clearly went above and beyond to help me come back to reality and basically stay alive while IP. It strengthened our therapeutic bond. I am lucky to have him.

See my T tomorrow. Iím sure it will go well too.

Try not to worry about Seroquel. Itís weight neutral for some including me.

Mum liked the cake I made her. I made it last night after she went to bed. Spice with cream cheese frosting and M&M's for decorations. My oldest sister and BiL are coming for lunch today and we'll celebrate mums 91st birthday.
