always take your psych meds!

This is a late post because I’ve been busy with work.

I’ve been really good about bringing my lunch to work and not eating out, that goes for dinner too. So one day I decided to get In-N-Out for dinner on a Friday evening. Hey, I deserve it right? So I got a double double with grilled onions, extra crispy fries and a coke. Took it home, ate it and even shared my fries with Mochi. I have not eaten that much food in such a long time! I was beyond food coma. My stomach was as big as a watermelon and felt like it was going to pop at any moment. The one good thing was I ate it at like 5:00pm so I had time to digest before going to bed. But even then, I still felt sick. It wasn’t digesting fast enough. I couldn’t even drink any more water. When it came time for bed, I still couldn’t drink anything, if I did, I would just throw everything up anyway so why bother? So I decided not to take any of my medicine. Mind you that the medicine I take at night are the important ones and I take 7 pills at night. So I went to bed that night with a stomach ache and no medicine hoping that everything would be okay the next morning.

The next morning my stomach ache was gone but I felt all out of sorts. I wasn’t exactly depressed but I was down in the dumps. I didn’t want to do anything. I couldn’t get myself to do anything. I didn’t even want to eat. Partly because of the night before and partly because it was too tasking at the moment. My overall mood was meh. The entire weekend I was glued to the couch watching TV but not watching TV. It’s as if it was one of those time lapse videos in slow motion and fast forward at the same time, if you catch my drift.

I did take my medicine the following night as normal but it didn’t seem to take any effect on Sunday. The odd mood continued into the week. I was off throughout the day at work. Functioning but I was just a robot. If I didn’t have to go to work, I would have been in bed all day, all week even. I can’t remember what happened that week, it was all a blur. I think I was finally back to normal that Friday? That’s when I realized how important it is for me to continue to take my meds on a regular basis because one, they work and two, missed doses can cause major set backs. The other thing is that maybe my body is used to having a certain amount of medication in my system everyday and depriving my body of that can also cause major set backs and I will never eat that much food in one sitting again. Oye!
