you're probably right. your T too...

(insert whiny voice) but I don't wanna be on meds indefinitely...

I wonder whether this is one of those crises that I am manufacturing so that I'll have some excuse to go crazy? It's about time for the anniversary of the big D.

pdoc wanted to start tapering last november, but i had this psychotic/dissociative episode and we ended up upping my abilify and adding zyprexa prn. goody.

T thinks I'm ready to start tapering down the meds, even starting last fall. I think he and I are planning on using exercise as a proxy for some of the mood stabilizing drugs, perhaps the lamictal?

I haven't discussed timing of surgery and stuff. I just happened to bring it up in session and observed a shadow crossing T's face, and upon probing him found out about the surgery. i don't think he was ready to tell anybody (haha I tricked him using T-trix)
