Good luck! I hope you get it. Yea, I've been on Zyprexa before but that was years ago. What about weight gain? Is it better on the generic?

I haven't been on it long enough to tell if it will cause me to gain weight. I hope not. I lost 30lbs with Noom. I don't want to gain that back. But I am just watching what I am eating and trying to eat healthy.

I am going to apply to a writing program. I like writing so it should be fun. I have to write a thesis though. Oh well, my writing is mediocre at best. I hope to improve with much practice. We shall see.

I am doing well. I'm compliant and feel great. Life is doable and charming for now.

I got another job offer but turned it down. I really need to focus on applying. I have about 5 or 6 essays to write. Lol, I have not even started. Argh!

I am feeling kind of super in these moments. It's not even a suspicious thing! I feel so much like I have a bundle of happiness coming if I play my cards right.

I'm still sick but at least I had my Covid test yesterday. It was stressful to do. I'm glad I did it. I was very anxious. I'll know in a day or two what the results are. In the meantime, I'm taking Theraflu. I think stress is making it hard for me to recover. I will try to relax this weekend.

I am doing well, no psychosis nor mania so far. I am happy. I am teaching again this week. I edited and rewrote some essays. For some reason, it is difficult to edit and rewrite other people's work, especially in science. Oh well, I want to become a writer and need to practice writing more. But, sometimes, my head blanks out and nothing comes out. I recover after a while but reading gobblygook and editing takes a lot out of me. Such is my life now. I am happy despite this. Life is not bad. I feel good about myself and could not be better.

I celebrated my birthday with my family today. It was nice. And I got the booster shot along with a flu shot. I am all good for a while.

Finally starting to calm down. Says the person who's been up since 3am dancing around, working out, and cursing the sun for getting up so late...

I am tired but doing well. Life is ok. I am finding it difficult to edit science topics. Oh well. I do it but my brain goes snap, crackle, and pop. It is excruciatingly painful for me at times then when it is over, I'm happy. I don't think I will become an editor, this is for sure. I will be happy just writing. I have to teach again tonight. I like it. So, off I go!
