I’ve gotten better at going to sleep early and getting up early.

Interacting with neurotypicals. I can pass as normal for longer periods. Might even be getting the hang of eye contact.

Being to work on time. It took threats though from my boss, I almost got written up. I’ve lost jobs in the past for being late too much. And for missing too many days or just not showing up without telling anyone. I’ve been at this job several years and weathered many storms, being on time was a big hurdle, I’ve only been late a few times since February.

Better sleep schedule, 11pm to 7-8am. Lost 15lb by skipping breakfast and just having a protein bar, getting better at video games and playing more.

Accepting to never quit meds. Finding a better med than Abilify and Rexulti, maybe Vraylar is even better when I try it.

Taking my health serious and doing research on meds, side effects and med interactions when my docs/pdocs don’t care.
