I promised Doc that I would be asleep by 11 at the latest. Fully medicated and asleep. I had a little “fall-apart” tonight, and Doc insists that I not add sleep deprivation to whatever cognitive issues I am having. He asked today, what treats the cognitive symptoms? I couldn’t help but laugh. Nothing! They have nothing that treats the cognitive symptoms effectively. They have new-agey things that have temporary effects on cognitive symptoms, but I already do art therapy. I do writing therapy. Occupational therapy, I take care of the house. I don’t need to spend a bunch of hours contemplating my toenails. I need to do things. And if I remember them later, all the better.
It’s ten. I think I’ll take my meds and watch TV until LL Cool J becomes a foursome. That’s when I know the meds are working.
