Daughter home sick from school. BF told me to not fall for her tricks & we ended up watching Skin Wars during lunch. She's watching YouTube with her laptop & papers everywhere. Tomorrow is Mom's bday.

Slept in & almost didn't do the treadmill & yoga, but was able to do it. Not very long, but that's better than nothing. Was supposed to do laundry at MIL's but now their shower is backing up! Wtf?!

BF had the day off work. Felt good to just chill. Back to treadmill & yoga tomorrow. Curious to see if I feel as good as I did the last time I started my morning with them. Fingers crossed!

Daughter spent the night w/a friend last night & is going to a different friend's house tonight. I always look forward to not having to vape in the garage when she's gone. Haven't treadmill or yoga.

Woke at 10:30AM, treadmill, yoga, dusted bedroom, vacuumed office & cat room, washed cat food dishes, kitty litter boxes, wiped down kitchen, & updated my book journal. Is it from stopping Trileptal?

School was cancelled bcuz of snow. Glad to have them home. I think stopping the Trileptal may be helping the sleep problem. I have been waking up around 10:30AM instead of noon. Hooked on a card game.

Septic tank full again. Big time problem. We've already paid $500 on this & nothing has been done to fix it. Minimal & quick showers, flushing the toilet a few times/day. Will be doing laundry at MIL.

Binged right before dinner. I feel so out of control. Sleeping too much, no energy. Therapist had asked if I was depressed. Maybe I am? Obsessing over food like crazy. It's all I think about. Hate it!

Scrubbed the shower today. That's always a huge accomplishment. Still slept a lot & ate too much. Where are the days when I had to force myself to eat? Glad it's the weekend. I'll eat less. Tired.

Do you think it's your meds that are causing you to eat more and sleep more?

Manda P
02 Feb 2020 · LEGEND

I'm not sure, mik. I contacted my psychiatrist & he lowered my Trileptal to see if I wasn't so tired. It didn't help. I'm going to just wait till I see him on the 10th. I need him to raise my Vyvanse to see if it'll help the appetite problem.

I agree, sleeping a lot can be because of meds or just general brain tiredness. Mental illness makes one sleepy sometimes. It can be annoying but it's certainly not a failure.
