updates on me
just an update on me.
i had posted a few weeks ago as a new member, talking about recent symptoms and problems with mixed states, etc.
well, i'm currently on sodium valproate, and i am glad to say that i think it is working. it's been about 3 weeks now that i've been on it. i was so reluctant to take medication and i just could not see that there was something wrong with me. but now that i am clear headed, i can see just how huge the problem really was.
i wake up in the morning now and i start my day fresh with optimism. i have no problem going about my daily activities. i set one small goal for each day, be it clean out my closet, organize the bathroom cabinet, take out the garbage, etc, and when i achieve this small goal each day i feel such a great sense of accomplishment. what's really fantastic is i am not screaming, yelling, getting frustrated. i am MUCH calmer. i still have the occassional set back, but for the most part, i am much more even tempered. my husband sees an enormous difference, and the best part is by children do not seem afraid of me. i am doing fun things with them, and enjoying it. i am not having any bizarre, instrusive thoughts. i feel like a different person.
