I’m exhausted. So tonight’s post will be short. I forgot how tiring a three year old can be. Especially when there is no nap involved!
I got a call from UT Health today. They received my records from my psychiatrist and therapist. I saw my internist as well. My EKG looked good and as long as my labs come back fine next week I will be put on the schedule and start ECT treatment as early as next week. I can’t believe this is happening. I’m so happy. Like a kid in a candy store happy. Potentially, for the first time since I can remember, I won’t be depressed or ride the bipolar mood swings. I am almost in tears just thinking about this. I never cry either. I should admit I stopped taking my antipsychotic, Geodon, yesterday. I was sleeping 18 hours a day! Life was hell. Today was so much better. Just one short nap. I spent so much time with my niece. I do see my therapist tomorrow and don’t know what she’ll say. As my psychiatrist always tells me, I know best about my body.
Had some ups and downs today but overall pretty good. I’m looking forward to spending more time with my niece and going to support group.
