This morning, I am struggling with some low motivation for the second day in a row. I am pretty sure it is the direct result of increasing Zyprexa (olanzapine) from 5 mg to 10 mg for a few days to prevent mania from developing fully. Even though I can understand why it is happening, I still find it frustrating. I also reduced my Ritalin (Concerta) so maybe I need to bump that back up for the tiredness; it also helps with motivation and depression – in addition to narcolepsy.
Last evening, the girls were at work, and I was home alone. I shopped for groceries at Walmart which is unusual for me to do later in the day when it is crowded. Overall, I felt a little more relaxed than I normally do when it is crowded.
After shopping, I watched the movie, Smile, on Paramount + (Amazon subscription). If you have mental health facility trauma, you might want to skip this movie. It was okay. I liked the storyline and effects – I won’t spoil it since it is a new movie.
Yesterday, I made a list of topics that I want to write about on my wellness blog, Nibbana Wellness. I plan on researching and writing for those posts on my next day off from work.
I need to get back on track with my coursework this morning. I am making substantial progress despite taking a day off from studying.
Time is flying by so quickly this morning. I feel like I just woke up and now I have to make haste to get things done before work!
