Another trip to the psychiatrist this week and it went okay. My medication has been doubled and I am feeling okay about that. He is confident that it should really make a difference and it is the first medication I have been on that hasn’t given me any side effects.
I am feeling pretty run down and tired but my sleep pattern has improved massively, I think it is more a case of catching up on all the sleep I missed.
I am cautiously optimistic that my mental health is beginning to stabilise. I haven’t cut in almost 2 weeks- It had become an almost every day occurrence. I know that the hard bit will be to not do it when I don’t feel well, but for now I’m proud of 2 weeks.
Going forward it’s all about compliance. I can’t control everything around me or every situation but I can make sure that I am doing all that I can to try and stay well.
