I met with my new doctor a few weeks ago. He didn't really do a physical but he checked my blood pressure which was like 130. Then he checked my lungs and heart and all that. My blood pressure was 140 somewhere and they just shrugged it off. Idk. Maybe it is just somatic but then how do you fix that...

What does it mean when you smell something really bad? Like eggs or something. Idk if its me or my room but its nauseating.

I'm about to go take a shower and sleep somewhere else. I sprayed air freshner and fabric spray but its not helping.

I put 2 of my blankets in the washing machine and sprayed more air freshener and I put on another shirt and the smell is still there. Wtf?

To the man's credit, he realized what happened and apologized profusely. I accepted (and apologized myself), as it wasn't intentional, but my nerves were shot for the rest of the day. They're still a bit shot today. It's been 5+ years since I've had that reaction and I'm nervous about my job. My boss has been good to me, but if she chooses to believe I nearly attacked someone for no good reason...
Had a chat with my PsychNP not long after this. I've always liked him as a sounding board and he managed to talk me off the proverbial ledge.

Conclusion: If the man who unintentionally triggered me wasn't mad and not going to bring it up, why should I? Also, I'm getting closer to even keeled again, so I'm not going to rock the boat.

Disconcerting, but nothing I couldn't come back from!

I'm sleeping just 3-4 hours a night and I'm so tired all day.

My pdoc increased Vraylar to 3 mg from 1.5.

She also prescribed a low dose of Seroquel for my sleep problems.

Dewed - re smell - is it your nose? Or does your mother smell it on your sheets too? I wouldnt be surprised if you smell like a Taqui or whatever it is you kids eat! Whats in your lunchables? Plus they are getting banned from schools for lead.

Lol. Your post reminds me of this sitcom I binge watched during the pandemic where the dad said "you kids and your Pink Freud music!"

I took a really good shower this morning and I can still smell it a bit. So idk. I haven't been in my room all day.

Well, it looks like I'm hypomanic. I'm sleeping very little and I'm obsessed with goals and goal-based activities.

At least I'm aware of it, so I can check myself.

I went to the gym today, it was a light workout so I'm not tired.

My doctor wants me to go to another hospital for a second opinion about my rotated right intestine to see if they think its an issue. Its a fairly local hospital. My coritsiol test came back and it was low. So I'm not sure what that means. It wasn't all that low but it wasn't normal. I'll have to wait to hear back from my doctor.

I've kept some food down today. I am a bit queasy right now but I'm holding down the fort so far. I've lost 3 pounds since Monday.

Iím not having a good day. Since yesterday Iíve been troubles with constipation. Plus Iím dripping blood on the floor from the hemorrhoids while I try to pull up my underwear and pants. Itís not my period I am sure of that. Itís bright red blood dripping from me. So I put on a maxi pad but Iím still ruining my underwear. I did call the drs office and the nurse said to take Miralax twice a day and add Colace.

My husband was a menace again today and made me walk to the store with him. I did not enjoy it. Had my appointment with my therapist this morning. Only reason why I didn't cancel is because my husband was being a menace again and was all like, "You need to talk to someone. That's why she's there. You haven't been out of the apartment in nine days!"

The appointment went fine. There was no where to sit in the coffee shop, so we ended up going for a drive. We talked about phentermine and my weight a bit. She told me there's a metabolic shift all women go through in their forties. Great. She encouraged me to call my GP and see if there were any other meds we could try (besides contrave or the injectables, which my insurance won't cover and I can't afford. $1000 a month? Ha! I'm on SSDI! So I called my GP and have an appointment scheduled with her on the 16th.

I'm just trying to figure out how someone can go from being on top of the world to down in the sewers in less than a month. Honestly, I listen to songs I would listen to while I was hypo--super happy songs--and now they just make me bawl. I need to get my **** together. I don't understand why my pdoc didn't increase my Cymbalta at my appointment last Wednesday. 😒 I'm not maxed out on it. I'm thinking about calling and requesting an increase.

I don't think decreasing my gabbies are going to make me feel better.

But I'm not the doctor.

You would be surprised how fast we can slip into such a low after being so high @raspberrytorte - but the good news is if you're sitting in a low, you can absolutely bounce back from that too!

I had a really good day today because I didn't go to work today. Really not excited anymore to drive an hour for a $10/hour job. I feel obligated to the owner because she gave me a job when I have a record, and the only reason I keep it is I need a job to report to probation. But that commute is starting to get to me and it doesn't make much sense anymore especially since her business is really failing.

Ended up going to Zaxby's and getting an amazing salad, which they are famous for around here. Also went to the post office and mailed out a letter to my penpal. My life is pretty good, I have to start learning to enjoy it more.

No word about my husband. Last I heard he was in a psych ward, but he has no way of contacting me.
