well i’ve been going through a tough time recently with a med change, hence the reason i haven’t been posting as much. we had our early christmas and i cooked christmas dinner for 13 people. it was fun but a lot of hard work in the kitchen. we had roast turkey, roast ham, pigs in blankets, sprouts, roast parsnips, carrots and shallots with gravy and bread sauce and yorkshire puddings. followed by pavlova and chocolate cake and cream. i was cooking from 11am till 7pm…then we ate and drank from 7pm till 5.30am the next day. it was great! i wasn’t too good in the days leading up to it but it gave me something to concentrate on so that was good…
in the past three weeks i’ve had one shower. i’ve washed my hair all the time and just used baby wipes everywhere else. i’m clean but not clean enough. i’ve promised myself a long shower this morning, or bath. i’ve been using an epilator on my body so at least i’m hair free
up at 4am this morning and i’m whitening my teeth as i write. it’s time to get back on track i feel. i started on the kitchen yesterday, cleaning the sides, the hob and the sink and drainer, did a load of washing, cleared out my cabinets in my room, took the doogies to the woods, picked up the poo in the garden and did 5 loads in the dishwasher. it’s taking a while to reach the optimum dose i guess. went up to 15mgs abilify last week and it seems to be doing the trick from yesterday. i’m hoping it’s going to level out some more and i’ll be even better shortly, though it’s only been a week and in the last two or three days i’ve felt better already. gotta stay at this dose for 6 weeks and see what, if anything happens.
so anyway, just thought i’d let you all know where i’ve been. xxx
