So here we are halfway through a month and I haven't posted yet! Bad blogger! But I get the feeling, every time I sit down to write something, that I've already said it. So little is going on in my life, and so little going on in my brain, that I feel like anything I make up to write will be boring... basically a dreary catalog of my mental health.
I did, on that topic, decide to start taking the Depakote, just to see what might happen. For the first couple of days I felt dreadful, groggy and sleepy and kind of, I don't know, vertigo-y? Like I'd look at something and it would seem to move farther away? I'm not sure what you call that. I wished I'd decided to start taking it on the weekend instead of in the middle of the week. Then on the third day I felt great, energetic and happy. Until about five-thirty, that is, when I completely and utterly crashed.
Since then I've felt pretty good... I'm sleeping a lot better, at any rate. I feel a little dizzy once in a while, which I don't care for, and I get really sleepy in the afternoons, enough that I'm able to take a nap... but I'm in a generally good mood. I'll see how I feel after I've been on the full dose for a month, and if I don't like it I'll talk to Dr. Shrinkimadink again and discuss something else.
So let's see, what else? I'm still at the same job, I'm bored out of my mind by the work, but the people are a lot of fun and the dress-code is very easy to live with (what I'd call College Caj). Still, I wish the agency would assign me to something that used my talents more. I mean, I'm a brilliant word-processor, a great writer, and pretty damned good at a lot of other things; but most of my assignments so far have been these low-end, go-nowhere, a-trained-monkey-could-do-it drudgery jobs. Plus, it's always at the bottom of the pay-scale, so I'm still just barely squeaking by financially. It's very frustrating.
Well, that's all I can think of today. Tra-la! It's May! The Merry Month of May!
Oh, wait, before I go, I have to share this unbearably brilliant YouTube video I just found after I finished the post: SHOES! (not entirely SFW, due to adult language)
