6.5, that’s my mood today on a 1-10 scale. 1 is the most depressed ever, and 10 is manic out of my mind. At 7 I start to worry that I might be having a problem with mania, and 7.5-8 is too far gone to be able to do anything about it. So 6.5 is a really good mood where I still don’t have to worry about mania. I write so often about feeling down and troubled, but I don’t tend to share the good days as often, so I am breaking the trend!
Today has been a great day. I slept in, which was very nice. Then when I woke up, I was happy and motivated to get stuff done. I showered and washed my hair first thing! I put away my clean clothes. I cleaned up in the kitchen. I swept the house. I answered a lot of email messages from listserv friends. I even did four phone calls for PSDP!
I have also been enjoying hanging out with the doggies! Hestia has been frisky and this morning she played with a dragon toy that is as big as she is! We got it from a previous convention. Ollie has been snuggly with me today, too. Brad has been busy working on PSDP stuff, but he has been interacting happily with me every once in a while 🙂
I love days like this! It is days like this that I’d like every day to be like. Happy, but not too happy. Motivated, but not too motivated. Just enough to really enjoy my life. I think this is a sign that the medications I’m on now are pretty close to ideal. I’ve only had two suicidal times since starting the latuda, no mania! I am able to be awake longer, now that my body is getting used to the latuda, which is really nice.
So I just wanted to say I am happy today, and I wish that happiness on others. I hope other people have a nice round 6.5 mood day, too.
