happy to be on abilify?

Oh my god! I love Abilify. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

No I’m not happy…I’m still me. There is no magic drug. I’ve been on the lowest dose of Abilify for enough time for it to work and guess what?? IT IS WORKING. I have energy. I’m not sleeping in. I got up today like I used to do PRE-major depression. That’s not all.

I went into Michael’s (for the 1st time) and talked to the woman who does crochet classes. I’m so in! I was more into the jewelry making class but the teacher wasn’t there. She has to cancel classes sometimes because so few people show up. She really wanted me there today. But I do have school and HELLO? the NBA playoffs start today. Maybe she forgot?

When she sees the reserved “shy” me, she is going to wonder who that person she saw in the store was. LOL. I was with my mom running errands and we just stopped in Michaels for 2 minutes. I had no idea they did classes. I can’t hide excitement. When I’m with someone I know I am so over the top. However when I’m in a group or with people I don’t know my excitement turns inward into…anxiety(?).

I know how to crochet a little but I want to make hats for myself and for others. I’ve tried books and one DVD. Nothing has worked so I would LOVE to take a class. I know the basics of jewelry making. I am sort of past beginner but since I haven’t done it in at least 3 years, a beginner class would be fine.

Back to Abilify: 12 hours after I took the first dose, my muscles felt like they had aged 40 years. Everything hurt. It seemed like I had worked out for the first time in maybe 5 years. I did go to work. (A plus for having a job where I can sit down). But even walking hurt. Luckily that didn’t last for longer than two days. I am still scared of the other potential side effects. I have never been on anything with potential life changing side effects. I’ve said this isn’t a magic pill but it is the closest thing to it.

So this is my infomercial. Talk to your doctor today.

I have to go to the library…and then school work (and playoffs) for the rest of the day.
