These are my thoughts. They are not meant to make sense. They are my echo into the woods. I am the tree that falls, and it is here that I make a sound.

7.00 second cup of coffee
7.05 reply to email from mom who advised she and Dad made it to Florida (they drove)
7.10 wake up son for school
7.15 make breakfast for son
7.20 realise lunches weren't made last night, so make lunch for son
7.30 get dressed for work after getting son to sit down
7.40 get son out the door for school, just after husband leaves
7.45 leave for work
8.20 arrive at work

12.45 arrive back at work, eat lunch
1.00 back at work
5.07 leave work
5.40 back at home
5.45 change clothes and go for run (just shy of 3 miles)
6.13 cool down walk in front of house
6.20 make cheese tortellini with homemade cheese sauce for Adam for dinner
6.40 Adam eats dinner

7.00 finish eating, have shower

I'm not seriously hypomanic but there's a definite increase in energy since meds change. Rob's still watching. So far so good.

Hey, hey! Sounds like you are under control -- Are you actually sleeping that 10:00-6:45? Like, without interruption???? If so that is truly awesome. and I am really happy for you. I just got home about 45 minutes ago from San Diego and am on my way to bed. Will blog in the a.m. Glad to hear you are doing well. Michele

That's a regular day?! Wow! There is so much to get done. I don't accomplish that much in a week because I procrastinate, don't cook for one, don't have a paying job, etc.

I am in awe of how you do it. Laundry? You mean I should actually WASH my dirty clothes instead of just buying new ones?

Yeah, I'm just going to second the comment before mine but, OHMYGODHOWDOYOUDOTHATEACHDAY?

I can't ever get that much done in one day because I either procrastinate or else I focus on ONE thing do that intensively. But then again, that's the hypomania sooo...I dono.

But, wow. You're incredible.

wow. You have a very full day. I too find it amazing that you do this each and every day.

I have to keep an 'activity journal' for my rheumatologist (who thinks my pain level might be over activity & lack of rest) I think I'm supposed to get as detailed as you ..but if I do ... I'll be in trouble!

Wed am. Notice I am not asleep. I'm on a break. hehe. Do I note a pattern here that always falls true for me when my meds are not right and that is the beginning of hypomania tell tale signal: all my time is taken up with work e.g., laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc. and no time taken for computer, journaling, writing, artistic pursuits. The right brain suffers. You haven't been keeping up your blog since the med change. I haven't been keeping up mine since your med change either. Go figure that one! M
