Going to wake up early and call again. Maybe I can get in with someone, like a nurse, though it’s not likely on such short notice. I already told my boss to find someone else to work my shift tomorrow, no way I can handle the pharmacy the way I’m feeling.
I’m still sleeping fine, so that is a good sign. When I stop sleeping it is time for the hospital, because that means I’m already going off the deep end. The hospital is not really an option, more of a last resort. This could still be handled outpatient at this point.
I smoked a Black & Mild leading up to teaching today, pretty much had to do something to calm myself down enough to do that. I have enough to deal with right now.
Hope they get back to you soon. Sounds like you are having a tough time.
Yeah, I can hope. My dr will be in tomorrow, so a nurse could talk to her between her appointments. There’s really no chance of me getting in with my dr, unless someone cancels.
Do meds help or are you treatment resistant?
Meds help, but apparently the Abilify shot is not enough right now.
Maybe you’d do better on two APs? I see a lot of people on here take more than one.
I used to get the Abilify shot too, but it gave me akithesia so I switched to the pill. Something about there being too much of the shot in my system right after I got it.
Are you towards the end of your dose? Maybe it’s wearing off…
No, just got it last Tuesday. Yeah, I’m hoping my dr will prescribe a second AP.
I’m going to head over a friend’s house. It’s getting late, about 10:30pm here, but it might help.
I was going to say that now might not be the best time to quit smoking. You don’t need any further stress.
Try and get a dr. not a nurse. I always go in with intentions to be assertive and somehow run out of steam and end up having a conservation with my nurse about the weather etc. I need to be more assertive to get to talk to the dr and actually get my meds sorted as I have been a bit off track the last few weeks. Good luck with your scheme to get an appointment ASAP. T.
Yeah, I couldn’t get in with my dr, she books two months in advance. They have lost drs, down to only two or three for the whole clinic. I’ll be seeing a nurse in an hour, though, maybe something can be done.
I’m glad you were able to get in with a nurse at least. Good luck getting everything sorted! Which AP are you hoping for?
Something strong and fast-acting. I never liked taking Haldol when I was on it before, due to the risk of TD, but I don’t even care about that right now, I’m down to try it again. We’ll see what my dr does when the nurse talks to her.
