Not scared anymore

Things are not great. But they are better.

I’m in a job where I have been completely honest about my illness. I’ve been able to work from home while I get used to my new meds. I feel in a really good place where work is concerned. I like my work and I really like my colleagues.

I’m not 100% coping – with the small things – particularly things like putting the kids to bed. Tonight I had a bit of a meltdown with them but it was just one night and I know I have done it other times without losing my rag at the kids. They were just particularly difficult tonight and pushed all my buttons.

The medication is making me feel very drowsy – almost stoned – in the morning and very tired in the afternoon. I’m having to take naps and breaks from work to keep up my energy and then I make up for it later in the evening once the kids are in bed.

I have to keep reminding myself that its okay to find things hard. That I don’t have to push myself.

That’s all for now.

    Agreed, take it easy! My meds make me feel tired in the morning, groggy for night settling, stupid and slow at work and like I’m a nun. Take it easy on yourself. If you’re making it into work, that’s an amazing and tiring achievement. And, of course, our children know how to wind us up at bedtimes x

Please comment so I know I'm not alone out here!
