I cannot believe it. Today I had no breakfast, two whole milk lattes for lunch, and a large meal at Sajj for dinner: chicken kebab with hummus, arugula, red cabbage and other veg. And I ate dinner several hours before bedtime. And I am not hungry. I was not hungry at all all day long.

I wish this were the new normal, but I am concerned that this is just my being amped up and escalating into hypomania as a result of sleeping just 5 hrs 40 minutes last night. Or maybe this being too happy and go go go is a side effect of Benzonatate, my new cough medicine. I have read that it can affect the mood and even cause hallucinations. I only took it this morning. I did not take it at midday because I was not home and I am not taking it now because I do not want further escalation.

Instead of Seroquel I will take Lybalvi for sleep. Lybalvi is usually very effective in nipping any hypomania in the bud.

It is hard to treat cough when you are bipolar!!
