Today I got exciting news! I was rediagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with depression and psychotic features. I feel like someone has just given me a billion dollars worth of hope. I now see a brighter future for myself. My Dr. is reducing my Abilify and increasing my Lexipro. Maybe I can maintain without the antipsychotics and I will not have to endure the weight gain and the tardive dyskinesia that I have been experiencing for so long now. Also, without so many drugs maybe I will feel up to driving again. I am still having pain which my shrink associates with my life experience with abuse. Tomorrow I am going to get a ride to apply for my old position with the school district. I want to start out working 3 hour shifts in Special Ed. Pre-K. Then if I begin to feel better I may graduate to a longer day.
I am sure that I will be accepted to the new subsidized building. I am going to be moving in January. The new building will have a rooftop garden and a community room for all of us to congregate. Other than that I really don't know what features the individual apartments have. We will each be given a parking space. The building is still in this zip code;but not on such good bus lines. Maybe they will allow pets there.
I watched Love Actually last night and it was really good. A good laugh and warm and fuzzy also.
I signed a petition to oust Bush which is on changeworldnow.org
You too can go there and be a part of this movement. There is also a walk out on November 2nd.
