I started taking Abilify on Friday night. 2mg. I’ve been having some nausea and grogginess since then, plus some trouble sleeping. I’ve tried taking it at bedtime and in the morning. Seems like bedtime is better.

But it’s starting to help. I’m starting to have more motivation to do things and less depression. Only slightly, but it’s a start.

One of the things I’ve been motivated to do is put back up an older theme here at waves and make it better. And finally get the journal archives converted to WordPress and maybe start writing more personal entries there again. I bought a new bright pink journal and a stainless steel Sharpie pen for the really private thoughts. I have tons of journals where I only wrote a few pages or they’re blank. It’s hard to find just the right journal sometimes.
