Alot of issues, some new and some old
I’ve been struggling with the start of school this semester. I had a hard time navigating the campus at the beginning and the sedation from abilify seems to make it hard for me to get up in the morning. I’m also having issues with brain fog or a feeling of dumbing down as a result of the medication. Akathisia in the form of dysphoria, short attention span and the inability to get comfortable have also made things harder. Blurry vision makes it harder for me to see things and do homework. I also suffer from some demoralization from not having many real life friends, I do long for friendships like those which all the other students at my university seem to have but social anxiety makes it hard for me.
THe good news is that the reduction in abilify has improved my poverty of speech and thought some. I still feel really dumb all the time. Other good news is that I’ve been able to lose a lot of weight transitioning to abilify and now I’m finally at a healthy bmi even though I eat crap all the time, literally just like ice cream and pizza and sugary juice ALL THE TIME…
What are some good and bad changes that are currently happening in your life?
