So the first week was pretty damned bad. But now closing in on the end of week 2, I think it might be starting to work. I’m not experiencing anything that seems even remotely like psychosis. And I’m getting back my interests in things that I used to love but haven’t even thought about in years, like designing/building habitats for things. I might go down to my grandmother’s lakehouse this Spring and catch myself some toads, build them a big, nice habitat and give it a go. I’m even doing laundry and showering every other day. My urge to self-harm has completely gone away, would just seem scary and crazy to me right now.
The only downside is that a couple hours after I take it, I get an internal stiffness/restlessness that is annoying and uncomfortable, but eventually fall asleep and it’s gone when I wake up.
