Everything’s Moving Along

Song: “Got My Mind Set On You” by George Harrison

Mood: 7.5

Nightmares: 0

It was tough getting up this morning. I felt like I could’ve stayed in bed forever, but I hauled myself out of bed and started the day. Things went pretty well.

I had a good time listening to some more records and doing more writing. I also spent some time trying to get Lloyd to follow my finger around the tank but he seems more scared of it than anything.

My Dr W appointment went well today. We talked things over and decided to start reducing my haloperidol from 3mg at night to 2mg. It and the zopiclone are the only two medications I’m taking that don’t directly work on depression so it made sense to start there. The zopiclone is helping me sleep right now so we decided to work on it later. I’m happy to be reducing my medications, even if its only by a tiny bit.

Dr W and I had a good chat about my sleep issues. He’s happy that they’re getting better but cautioned me to not spent too much time in bed if I can’t fall asleep. He wants me to get up and do something low-key and boring instead of staring at the ceiling in the dark.

I’m also having some intrusive thoughts that are bothering me. Dr W and I spoke about that too and he thinks it’s related to my OCD. I’ll talk to Dr P about it during my appointment tomorrow.

J and I went grocery shopping after my appointment and that was fine.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do this evening. J and I have been watching some Whose Line Is It, Anyway? and even though it’s almost twenty years old, it’s still quite entertaining.

Stay safe.
