a small update on things in general

I am irritable. I blame this, partially, on Risperdal, only because I started feeling irritable directly after I started back on that medication. I do not remember if it had this effect when I took it before (a couple years ago), or not, but it seems to have this effect now. I find myself getting frequently annoyed with most of the human race, and this is not normal for me. I am not irritable all the time, but some of the time. And it's not a severe problem.

I have wondered recently if I might by hypomanic right now. I have this constant desire to go shopping lately, which is not the way I am much of the time. But, like being irritable, it's also not a big issue or problem, so I am not really worried about it. I don't get flat-out manic ever, although some years back I did, just not anymore since then.

Otherwise, I am still going to work everyday and fulfilling obligations, despite the fact that I have the same old symptoms much of the time. They're manageable, mostly, and it's not nearly as bad as it could be if they weren't, but I do hope there will be a day in the future when I am completely, totally devoid of psychosis. I don't know when that day will be, or if it will ever be. I just hope it will.

Four be the things I'd have been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles and doubt

I welcome comments from all readers and encourage you to leave them! Please do. However, due to spam, I review each comment before it can be posted, so it may take 24-48 hours before your comment appears on the blog. Please be patient. I post comments that are not spam.Note: my definition of "spam" includes ALL links to sites claiming to cure or provide "the solution" for incurable diseases such as Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia. Vulnerable people come to my blog, and I will not let them be preyed upon, but people who post snake oil remedies on the internets. Take your garbage and peddle it elsewhere. Since Blogger doesn't weed all that garbage out, I've been doing it myself for years.
