I have things to catch up on, but I feel too tired. The attendant is here with my boyfriend, so I'm trying to take a nap. But I can't fall asleep. So the break time I have is being wasted. I'm not sleeping, and I'm not getting anything done.

I don't know what to do to get feeling better.

I am tired.................



I think I have been taking more of my AD than prescribed by accident, I just forget if I have taken it yet and I take it again.



I ordered Tryptophan, melatonin and tyrosine.

It seemed like it was a useless day being at work. It's a holiday, but we had to be at work anyways. Not many people there. Not busy and a draggy day.

Feeling depressed about the future. I'm getting the feeling that as I get older, I won't have much money, even though I feel like I'm doing a good job saving. Feeling alright emotionally but very empty. Also I feel like there are some little "thorns" in my life that won't go away. It's like nothing's going to change.

Go to the pharmacy (I recommend Wal-Mart's.) and buy yourself one of those weekly pill minder boxes. Get two of them. Next Saturday night lay out your pills for the following two weeks. It's close to impossible to avoid the problem you describe without a system like that.

This will keep you on track, and you'll know to order refills before you run out. I've done this for decades. I've not heard of a better system

I have forgotten those things exist.

You know, it's ironic. Some months ago I went to a pharmacy congress and I attended to the presentation of an innovative pill boxes (I hated the congress, I wanted to hear about new treatments while it just was people wanting to sell you expensive stuff, some useless). My psych nurse often says "How can you forget to take your meds/run out of them/forget to refilll them if you know that much about them!?" which is annoying, I wonder if she thinks that surgeons usually performance appendectomies on self.


I am going to buy one.

Feeling depressed today and now. After work, I had skin cancer removal. I was not looking forward to it. The procedure was not bad but it's the restrictions and care for it that's the worst. I can't go to the pool area and take any baths for two weeks now. I can shower, but that's it.

The day was alright . . . until I got mad little while ago. I could use a little consideration at home from my bf.

Started new drug therapy. Noticing much less pain, calmer, happier and more energetic. Feeling optimistic. Looking forward to tomorrow. Been years since I've said that.

Got bad news at work today. While I haven't been laid off (which would have been the third time in less than two years) I am being moved to a workplace a 90 minute drive from my house. It has triggered some depression, just when I was feeling better.
