I typically don't move that fast. Dissertation work takes up about 2-3 hours a day, on a GOOD DAY! School & work meetings and such are often stressful, and I've been doing my best to limit my responsibility to participate and attend them. Right now I'm still making a transition between summer work-load and semester work-load. It's a tricky balancing act.

To tell you the truth, the last 2 days were indeed too too much. I can recognize that now. I should have been kinder to myself, and avoided unnecessary drama. This is one of my problems though-- I tend to create too much drama and expose myself to excess stress at precisely the times when I ought to be cruising and taking it easy.

I know exactly why the pdoc wants me on a high dose of seroquel. It is so that I will stop having so many intrusive thoughts and mood swings. Also to augment my cymbalta. It's not that high anyways. Many people take it at doses up to 600-800 mg to get antipsychotic benefits. Remember how Scott told you that doses like 200mg were the type that were likely to have antidepressant effects?

I'm feeling a little better today. A lot of it is because I have a clear schedule. More freedom to do what I want, when I want it. I am also looking forward to having my girlfriends over to watch Grey's Anatomy. I will cook them dinner, and vacuum my place (I cleaned it already on tuesday). I am looking forward to this a lot.

I'm gonna take it easy for now. Do some stuff that doesn't require heavy brain power. I have some nice classical music on my headphones and no stressful appts or deadlines coming up until next week yay.

I see my T this afternoon. You bet I will tell her that I had a really rough couple of days.

Thanks for thinking of me. It's nice to feel that you care for me :) and yes, I do know where you are :) How come you never go to babble-chat? just curious
