I rushed out today thinking that I needed to be available at a certain time for my Psych doctor phone call appointment… but it’s tomorrow. Yay for losing track of days. What is today? A day. Like anything other days. Derp derp. Well, tomorrow I have my first appointment with the new Psychiatrist at the office. Just to confirm the same meds I’ve nearly been on for the last decade… We’ve learned that trying new meds either … doesn’t work as well or has horrible side effects. Like hallucinating shadow people.
Always make sure that you advocate for yourself concerning your psych medications. Research your own meds. It took a bit of time for me to get on the medications that I’m on now, but it’s a good place for me. I’ve learned that too much medication can numb me to a point I don’t feel alive. And going off medications is a disaster. Suicidal ideations and mood swings. Woohoo, bipolar. Urgh… Done with that ramble.
So after I realized I did -not- need to be available for the appointment today, I stopped in at the library. I had to return some books my stepdaughter had borrowed and forgotten about. Then got my own books! And drank some Royal Milk Tea! So good. I know that I can brew my own tea, but sometimes drinking these little cans of Asian drinks is a special treat. I still have a few books out right now so I only picked up three books today.
I’m hoping to make myself a lightbox/station to take photographs of food/items. We’ll see how things fit into my budget to do this. Also looking into the long-term goal of visiting Japan! My SO, stepdaughter, and I would love to go to Japan and more specifically, Okinawa. For Uechi Ryu! Like a martial arts pilgrimage.
I’m really on a book kick right now. I’ll probably do a post about it tomorrow or the next day after I get a chance to look into things. But for now, it’s late and I had Uechi Ryu practice earlier so I am SO tired. Thanks for stopping by today, guys! See you tomorrow.
