Mental Health Update

Hi guys! I thought it was time I did an update on my medication changes and general mental health!!

My latest medication change is completely going off the Seroquel and being on abilify instead. It took my body awhile to adapt to the abilify in my system but seems to be OK now. I’m on my last week of the Seroquel (50 mgs compared to 150-200) and I’m concerned how that going to affect my mood and sleep.

I just received some Christmas gifts from the donors from the SA/DV center I receive services through. In it was my much anticipated weighted blanket! I used it for the first time last night and it was so wonderful and so helpful! Thank you to the special elf that gifted that to me. It’s going to make all the difference in my life. I felt so safe and secure with it! Something I need to calm the anxiety and to feel safe again.

My mood in general is finally starting to get better. I’ve mostly accepted that my advocate moved on and that life does and is moving on.

I haven’t been this excited for Christmas in years. I feel like a kid again and it feels great.

I’m not sure what the next few months will bring but I’m hopeful for an amazing 2019!

There’s your little update!!!
