A new year coming

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 279

I feel more myself now - stopping taking my medication has been rather a good idea - I thought I was OK but before Christmas I went shopping and lost the car in the supermarket car park then, after walking up and down the rows until I spotted it I opened the back and found that I'd already done the bulk of the shopping and forgotten to take it into the house, so some of it had spoilt.
I took myself home and unpacked it all so my fridges were full - I have two, one kept at a lower temperature than the other.
I still can't remember the answer to one of my security questions, but hopefully it will come back to me - but I am rather concerned that I could suddenly find myself in that situation. I had forgotten to take all my tablets for two days, which is probably why I am still functioning now - but I do normally watch myself for signs of loosing the plot.
I had been trying to learn a new song, stopping the medication allowed me to sing the song at the folk club so I hope no permanent damage has been done.
