No, I am planning on taking a portion of that today. I had bad allergies the last couple of days so I've been particularly scared to try it.
I haven't bought a BP monitor yet either. I don't live far from a drugstore that has one in it so I've been going over there to test my pressure.

I am so hoping that you can get better treatment to cover your OCD and yet leave you with some motivation. Prozac sounds like a good place to start. I also hope that working will give you more of an incentive to go back and finish the program.
Believe me I know how you're feeling.
