Recently at the hospital they diagnosed me as having Psychosis Not otherwise specified. So, I'm kind of lost.
yes your are correct. i hav been dxd with SZA previosuly anyway

Had my appointment with my psychiatrist today. All my meds are staying the same only thing he changed was he added a vitamin D supplement prescription because apparently my vitamin D levels are super low according to my bloodwork. But the rest of my bloodwork all looks good. He said my cholesterol is better than it was a year ago. He said my good cholesterol is a little low though so to try to start eating fish and stuff like that sometimes. He asked if I was still self medicating with THC and I said no I stopped because it was messing with me too much and he said good and that’s a smart choice. But yeah the vitamin D thing I am supposed to take once a week. So I’m gonna go to the pharmacy tomorrow and pick that stuff up along with my regular meds.

I think he’s the first doctor and first psychiatrist that’s ever really checked my vitamin D levels. I always known it was very likely low but never bothered getting checked for it.

I slept really good last night. 11 1/2 hours. Not much going on today. Feeling pretty good. Get paid today. So I can pay for a couple violin lessons, pay my phone bill, get household essentials, and get a new purse and violin book my violin teacher recommended. I made some English muffin pizzas. Those are so quick and good. Listening to some good music. Been watching the show The Boys on amazon prime and really enjoying it. I'm mostly just chilling today. Gonna watch the rest of season 1 of The Boys and maybe read some more of my books. Maybe play some videogames too. Tomorrow I'm going to the store to buy household essentials, getting on the treadmill, and practicing violin. I need to get some sunscreen. I'm trying to get out of the house more at least for a walk once a day. My next violin lesson is on Tuesday.

Next month when I see my psychiatrist again he's gonna write a support letter for me to become my own payee which is nice.

But yeah in general I just feel really good. All of the stuff that was severely stressing me out has been resolved and I'm doing better on the med changes.

I need to make a dental appointment. One of my crowns fell off the other day while I was eating. I still have it, it didn't break just popped off so they just need to cement it back on. So that needs to be put back on and I need a cleaning and exam and any necessary followup appointments. And I need to make an appointment with my primary for a physical. And last but not least I need to make an eye exam and possibly get new glasses if my insurance covers them. I'm pretty sure it's been 2 years since I got new glasses so I should be able to get a new pair. Gonna try to get all those appointments taken care of throught the rest of the summer and fall.

Some of my health goals for the next year:
Improve my good cholesterol by eating things that increase good cholesterol like fish, nuts, beans etc
Lose 30 lbs
Lower my bad cholesterol more
Have good dental hygiene
Eat more balanced, less junk food

I printed out the printable workbooks that came with my kindle DBT workbooks I have so now I can use them to make copies of the worksheets and do the exercises in them. There's like 3 packs of worksheets and chapter reviews, one is 63 pages, one is 60 pages and one is 30 pages. Yeah I printed ALL of that out last night lol I'm trying to work on it everyday throughout the day. I feel like it would be helpful for me especially since I have a history of trauma and BPD.

I'm kind of proud of myself because the other day I started dissociating badly. I managed to pull myself out of it though. It took a couple hours of watching shows/movies, and playing games to distract myself but after that it dissipated and I felt a lot more grounded. Typically the only way to pull myself out of them is going to sleep because it seems to reset my brain. But I'm glad I was able to do it this way.

I had my volunteer shift today with the cat rescue. It went well. I didn't feel like going mainly due to me being lazy and tired and I get anxious on the bus, I was thinking about backing out but I managed to push through it and get myself there and back. So I guess that would be the skill opposite action, doing the opposite of what your emotional impulses tell you to do.

Trying to meditate daily, journal, and exercise. And get out of the house more. I've been dealing with some agoraphobia so it's been difficult to get myself out. There's supposed to be a carnival coming up either at the end of this month or in August I forget when but I'm going to that. I'm also going to an adult coloring night at my local library later this month.

I have a violin lesson on Tuesday. Looking forward to it. Have to go pick up my meds tomorrow and the Vitamin D prescription so I can finally start that.
