Both yesterday and today I screwed up my meds. When I got ready for bed last night, I saw that I hadn’t yet taken my morning dose of escitalopram oxalate (Lexapro). Then this morning after I took my morning meds, I noticed that both my morning and evening doses were gone. I had taken both. Crap. I do have a system — two pill holders, one light transparent green for the morning, one light transparent blue for the evening, but the colors are similar and pill box shapes identical. Maybe I need to be able to more clearly differentiate between the two. I’m fighting sleep right now, not because of weather, for it is sunny, but because I took my night-time dose of divalproex (Depakote) and diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

Crap. Forgot to collect mail from mailbox for three days this week. Bills now in a pile, including a paperwork nightmare in which our medical insurance is denying claims retroactively. Mind on edge. Caffeine or something else. Hypomania, perhaps. Definitely irritable and something close to anxious. As if something is about to change. Could be I’m simply anxious about visiting my parents. Worried about them. That’s probably part of it. Also trying to get some loose ends taken care of. House projects completed. Happy to see bathroom walls finally repaired. Soon the rooms will look great. The bathrooms, that is. The rest of the house remains partially painted with unpacked boxes waiting for finished rooms.
