Finally got my work caught up!
Sunday, August 30, 2015
our friends came over last night. This is the friend of mine who was very depressed and is having marital problems. WE had a nice dinner took a short walk because it was hot and then watched a movie. the holiday a romantic comedy with jack black, jude law, kate winslet, cameron diez. I enjoyed seeing it again so did jeff, susan and paul, not so much.
Oh well it was something to do.
While jeff and susan fed some neighbors cats I asked to paul about how things were going and he said 50-50. That they had seen a marriage counselor and he was reading a good book that she recommended, something about the 5 types of love. Susan was to read it next. Paul apologized for susan not calling me, I told him that she was my friend and that I would continue to try to reach out to her. He said I should stop. I don't understand that????
Susan seems a bit hypomanic.
And she has told me this a couple of times since she has been back. Her pdoc changed up her meds she started taking lamictal 100mg and zoloft 50mg i think.
estrogen and progesterone can they make you hypo manic?
She was sort of pushing thru dinner. She seemed abit off/maybe aggressive.
I think she might be mad at me for slighting her gift of tea at lunch the other day. I also refused her daughters gift of tea related basket...It had a tea pot in there and was expensive. I took it back and bought an owl to think of her and gave her a $50 gift card to whole foods.
maybe I am just grasping at straws.....
Slept well last night and got up late felt good to sleep in. WE went out to breakfast like always. Had my usual 3 eggs with spinach and black bean salsa and a side of broccoli. yummy!
Today was a paper work day. I used a timer and that really helped to keep me focused. I was really really behind in my charting. so I spent a good amount of time charting and then billing and some filing so I got caught up!!!!!!
WE had left overs for dinner. I ate my left over hamburger steak from texas road house and some fresh fruit left over from yesterday. Jeff ate the left over pork stew from last night.
finished my paper work and now am enjoying the computer time.
Today is day 7 AF.
and the 2nd week of increasing my lamictal going slowly as ordered.
I am at 50mg during the day and 200mg at night. Eventually it will be 100mg during the day and 200mg at night.
Then I cut back on the geodon to 40mg in the day 80mg at night.
Then I see her again.
Then she said to go to 80mg at night. I don't want to do that, I think I need to have the dose broken into to 2 divided doses. 40mg in am and 40mg at night. (not just the 80mg at night), she said it was cheaper that way.
I know how I feel if I forget a dose so I know that it only lasts so long before you feel it.
When I see her I will ask for the 40mgs capsules.
I will have been 3 weeks AF by the next time I see her and then I will have my thyroid level checked. I wanted to wait until I had some AF time under my belt before testing again. Last time alcohol effected my tsh. I want my tsh to be as normal as possible because I am paying for these tests and meds and pdoc visits out of pocket. So more extensive testing is expensive. And I don't want to run them if I can avoid that.
Do you think increasing lamictal can cause hypomania?
