Seeing The Humor

I decided not to wait to see what would happen if I let one of my psyche meds run out. I had a pretty good feeling it wouldn't be pretty judging by past experiences. I got in to see my psychiatrist yesterday instead of waiting until Saturday which was my next scheduled appointment.

While I was there I asked him about something he'd said a few appointments ago, which was him wanting to start me on something for OCD. He gave me a low dose prescription for that.

I looked at the bottle when I got home last night. It says to take half a pill once a day. Half? They want someone with OCD to cut a pill exactly in half? Yes, I have a pill splitter, but still.. Am I the only one to see humor in this? =)

New med means getting used to new med side effects. I'm feeling a little groggy and I have a headache. I know from past experience these should pass in a day or so.

While I'm here I'd like to mention that while I was OUT of the house yesterday we stopped by Fashion Bug to redeem a gift certificate a DIL had given me for Christmas. My plan was to buy a larger sized pair of jeans since I've outgrown my other ones.

I decided instead to buy a new nightgown. I hope to be back in the jeans I already have in the not too distant future.

good for you. Now are you going to model the nightgown? Nah... didn't think so. :)

Grace - No modeling of nightgowns is right. =)

I hope your new meds make you feel better soon :) And I am glad you treated yourself. You should totally model the jeans when you get back into them!! :)
