A Brief Update on Abilify

On 1mg, it’s done wonders to lessen the heights and depths of my mania and depression. On the other hand, it hasn’t made them go away entirely. Instead, I feel like I’m on a tightrope, and while before on was either too high or too depressed to notice how high I was above the ground… now I can notice.

I feel weak at the knees a lot. Queasy like butterflies in my stomach. A kind of stage fright that plagues me from time to time.

My body may still be adjusting to the dose, or it may need more (I will not attempt to work that day we raise the dose, if we do). But I want to go back to feeling like I’m in suspension again.

Oh well. I’ll put it down to Doctor Who Regeneration Syndrome.
