Bad case of the blues washing over me

Maybe it's the gloomy skies, I don't know, but my mood is steadily dropping and all I feel like eating is ice cream. Already went through 1.5 litres of ice cream in 2 days. Gross. Not interested in doing anything this evening. Just want to go to bed.

Take it easy, prairiechick.
Sometimes you can only do your best and take one day at a time. Ice cream therapy won't work long term, but if it helps you get through the here and now, then it's not a bad thing to be doing.
Also, you might need to rest. Going to bed might be a good idea.

Really hope this feeling lifts for you soon. x

I haven't been sleeping very well, so that might be catching up with me. Yesterday was sunny, and I was feeling really good, and it was only right at the end of the day at work today that I started to feel my mood slipping. But it's still too early to go to bed. It's not even quite 6:00 pm for me yet.

Oh of course, time zone differences. Would be good to get an early night. I know it's obvious, but lack of sleep is exhausting. :rolleyes:
The weather can have a huge effect on mood. Not sure where you are in the world (in the States) but i've been finding the on/off sunshine here difficult. :hug: x

I try to get enough sleep, but I often wake up a lot in the wee hours and struggle to fall asleep. I can't up the quetiapine anymore, and already take zopiclone and trazodone for sleep, so basically I need to get more exercise in hopes that will help. But when I am feeling so tired I lack the motivation to get out.

I managed to cook myself some chicken. Chicken and ice cream for supper. Better than nothing, I guess.

Fat, fat, fat. As if I'm not already fat enough. Fried chicken and ice cream. Where's the fibre in that?

Give yourself a break, soluable fats I said? funny how you missed the protein and lean meat and more protein? that is good. Ok did not realise it was fried, still its food hunny give yourself a break, it's energy for you and yur body netralises it.

Just realized I forgot to take my morning meds, so that might be why I started crashing. Abilify seems to keep my mood up and I notice pretty quick when I don't take it.
