I called my doctor last week and said, "I'm miserable and I need help. I feel like I am going to jump outta my skin."
I was sent directly to Brief Intensive Treatment while they adjusted my medications. The tried to put me on Olanzapine (Zyprexa), but I just slept around the clock. They finally got me stable on a higher dosage of Risperidone. I'm still very drowsy, but it's livable.
B.I.T. has the best food and it was certainly the highlight of my stay. Each nurse takes a turn at making up a menu and then preparing a meal with a consumer's help.
I am so glad to be home. Maggie greeted me with a zeal like no over time before. Mom spent every night over here with Maggie so she wouldn't get lonely. I appreciated that so much as she is my furry little buck toothed child. I've missed you all and hope things will get back to normal soon.
