Mini-Post Mondays: Money and Meds

Short and sweet, per my going crazy and all.

I just found $8 in change in my purse and that’s awesome.

I’ve realized many of you don’t know which meds I’m on, so let me break it down for you. I’m supposed to take:

  • One 20mg pill of Citalopram (Celexa) a day.
  • One 10mg pill of Abilify a day.
  • Two 100mg pills of Gabapentin (Neurontin) a day (200mg total).

The Citalopram is for depression. The Abilify is a mood stabilizer and pretty much for nothing other than if the Celexa makes me manic (I know this because my doctor keeps upping the dose whenever I tell him I’m anxious or too happy). The Gabapentin is for anxiety. Now, I don’t know anything about these meds, but something tells me they’re not the correct combination for me.

I also have an update on my diagnosis — I have Bipolar I with Anxiety, and Borderline tendencies. So, there’s that.

Then I did the dishes while dyeing my hair.

Productive-as-fuck, meet Tempest Rose.

Anyway, after all of my doing all the stuff, Adam and my dad got home so I ran out to get them (and me) some food. I stopped to get milk at WaWa, and got in line behind an adorable little boy. I’d say he was about 10 or so, definitely no older. He was just standing there staring sadly at a pile of change in front of him — the cashier had the same sad stare at a 12oz cup of hot chocolate.
