On antibiotics again already. Oi vey.

Nice chat with brain-care specialist yesterday about whether or not I may be a touch hypomanic. At the end of the session she said I appeared to be okay, but that the only way to really know would be to see what happens if I reduce the gabapentin that I'm on for RLS (and which also has helped so much with the CFS). So I may take myself down by one capsule in a day or so, and see what happens. But we also discussed other things that have been going on and as well as the sad stuff, there's also been quite a bit that's good and happy making.

I don't appear to be doing anything silly (overspending, rooting random strangers, that sort of thing), my concern is that I find the down spells quite downifying. And I'm worried I might yet be overdoing things and heading for a CFS crash.

Although come to think of it, the down spells probably aren't as bad as they have been. Maybe it's just the contrast. Evenings are still a tricky prospect, and in some ways a bit worse when health is better and you feel unduly cooped up but don't have enough social/recreational options in place yet to make evenings in a blessed relief.

Today I saw my GP, third trip out in as many days. I have more trip out tomorrow and then I think I'll need to hibernate, at least until the antibiotics kick in. I plan to totally not overspend in a hypomanic way on books and art supplies.

Books and art supplies... Ah yes, I'm familiar with those hypomanic drugs of choice. ;)

Isn't it lovely being big bags of chemicals? *pats*
