I went out to say hello to a new neighbor who is moving in. That is not much for most people, but for me it is an effort. And then I signed up for the next Sci Fi book club- which is an hour's drive away, but it is on a Wednesday night and the next day is a late day for me at work, so I can do it. The book looks good, I wanted to read it anyway.
I caught up on my back episodes of "The Strain." At the end of the last episode- it really got weird! Although I have a theory. Why do I like shows like this? It really borders on what I can watch at times. I think I have gotten more timid when it comes to horror. I went through a phase when I loved horror movies.
This morning I did my meds and vitamins for the week. And I realized, I am set with my meds for a while- well, except maybe that last bit of klonopin... But otherwise, I have figured out what works for now. And even if in some very distant long term I might be better off of certain meds- I probably won't live long enough to benefit! I have to do what works for now.
I think my supplements are pretty set, too- except that sometimes I think I want to add more coQ10, or investigate DHEA. But taking DHEA means working with a doctor who will test your level- I doubt mine will- and it just gets too complicated. I don't want to find another doctor.
Eventually I will have to figure out what to do about menopause. I need to find out what my options are for hormone replacement- I have been hoping they would figure it out by the time I got there, but they need to pick up the pace! I think that, mood-wise, I will be much better off taking some kind of hormone replacement. And if anyone gives me a hard time about prescribing it because of risk factors, etc., then I will tell them that Zyprexa is a much riskier drug and I have been taking that for a long time.
