This guy I met in residential and is going to the same IOP as me is letting me stay at his house for a couple days. He lives much closer to the IOP, claims to be and seems to be committed to recovery, so I think it'll be good to get away from this place for a bit. I just have to not be a bad influence

Weening myself off most my meds too. Even my pdoc said the residential overmedicated me (three antipsychotics, two anticonvulsants, two benzos, prazosin, and amantadine), but I don't want to wait on her limited availability to taper. Already did away with Vraylar since I was only on 3mg and it has a really long half life so I shouldn't have withdrawals.

I don't have work again until Sunday yay.

Plans for my days off:

sleep
sleep
sleep
go to the library
Practice violin a lot
Catch up on some shows
Play games
Spend time with my bf
Catch up on all my laundry and household chores
Play with my cats, I feel like I haven't given them enough attention lately and feel bad for being gone from home for long hours
Maybe meal prep this weekend for sunday through saturday, I have 4 shifts.. When I say meal prepping I basically mean making hamburger helper

Other than that just relax and try to enjoy time spent not being productive. Read my books. Drink coffee from my new keurig. Oh and my sister and I are having lunch at Dennys on Saturday

Roll Call 201

Made a vegan stew for dinner. Sweet potato, chickpea, and spinach. Yummy!

I was going to go to this market on Sunday but apparently it was only four small tents and the lineup was like an hour and a half, so I went to the Ethiopian food truck and went home. Food was so good! I bought an Ethiopian cookbook and am waiting for it now. Iím inspired.

I went to physiotherapist today for my arm. Got exercises and stuff to do. Hopefully it gets back to normal quickly. Have like some kind of tendonitis in my forearm.

Anyway not much else.

I hope things go well with coming off some of the meds

Oh and if work calls I'm ignoring them because I'm not scheduled till Sunday. Normally I don't mind picking up/covering shifts now and then but I just did two long *** back to back shifts on zero sleep doing something really stressful and intense so I'm not available for awhile, I don't have to answer

I think a stew would be a good start! Basically you cut things up, throw it in a pot and stir it every so often until itís done.

It is cold. And I am a

Bad, broken brain.

No jk - Had a nice time with my aunt and uncle. They're visiting for 3 days - It's good. We talked a lot, and it helped ^-;

I took a 5mg olanzepine, just to keep my mind together.

I overslept and missed my volunteer shift so I apologized to the person in charge of kitten angels and told them I unfortunately couldnít continue with them at least for now but hope to come back someday. Due to work being so unpredictable. They called me in to work today from 12pm to 5pm so Iím gonna be doing that today :/

I have a stupid cough. It's just hanging on and on. I took a very quick shower and I skipped my hair. I don't know if I posted about my haircut, it's like the best one I've had in my life. Lots of layers and I got rid of almost all the length. About 3 weeks ago. I love it. Anyway, I didn't wash my hair and the CNA is like, "your hair is dry!" I said I know, I didn't wash my hair. Why don't they just leave me alone.

Huge slice of pizza like bigger than my face. Good deal. I was hungry cause I havenít eaten since breakfast and itís 6pm now. So Iím eating that now. I work tomorrow from 12pm to 7pm

Played the magic the gathering card game with my bf tonight. Now am just relaxing and listening to music. Weíre gonna watch some anime later. I feel pretty good.

Somebody picked up their $500 layaway today at work (all clothes) and it was huuuuge and a nightmare to deal with plus they did 4 methods of payment for it.

Overwhelmed by work honestly. I was slacking and itís biting me in the *** now. Sometimes I just canít focus and do anything, then it piles up and I struggle to catch up.

On Friday night I worked until 1030pm because we were short people and everyone wanted a rush done ASAP.

Today I worked for a few hours, then had a meeting, then a team lunch, then another meeting. I didnít feel like I did too much so I got home around 3pm and aside from cooking fish and then eating and taking the dogs for a walk I worked until 8pm.

Tomorrow I do some training for someone. On Thursday I have to train on something with someone else.

This admin person on our team quit and her last day is on Friday so theyíre delegating the stuff she worked on to the rest of us. So two of my coworkers will be doing the bulk of it, which leaves me handling all quotes that come in. Which hopefully isnít too crazy. Seven account managers across the two provinces, and weíre into the last quarter of the year where thereís a push to get salesÖ

But hey, it is what it is. Crying about it isnít going to change it. Just gotta deal with it. Trying not to stress too much.

To be fairÖ I hate being bored at work so at least Iíll be busy instead of bored!

Going to start buying clothes with my employee discount at my job, build up my wardrobe. They have nice clothes for good prices. Plus the emplyee discount. So it'd be a good idea to take advantage of that. I am buying a hoodie on this Saturday. Next Friday my big paycheck comes in and I'm gonna buy a bunch of clothes. Same thing the following week after that.
