Update time

Overall things have been going alright these past few weeks.  My new job has been keeping me fairly busy.  I've been working about 3-4 days per week, about 15-20 hours per week.  I like it a lot so far, and I feel like the people are all really nice.  I do the best job I can, and it seems to be good enough.  This past Saturday was a very long day for me, as I was scheduled to work 8 AM - 3 PM, which I worked, but then it turned out that the girl working the shift after me called off, and they couldn't find a single person to fill the shift!!  So they asked me if I would be willing to work some of it.  I was REALLY tired, but I felt horrible leaving just one girl there to attend to the entire store all by herself, so I agreed to work 5 PM - 9 PM as well.  Needless to say, it was a LONG day.  My feet were killing me by the time it was all over.

Not too much else is really all that new.  I have moved my appointments with my team down to once a month, which is a big step for me, and I am handling it okay.  It is actually kind of nice not to have to make that long drive so often.

I did see my psychiatrist a few weeks ago, and everything medication-wise is remaining the same for now.  Eventually, I would really like to come off of some of this stuff, to see if I really need some of it, but I think for now, my psychiatrist wants to be cautious, and just maintain me where I am.  I am having some weird symptoms that I think may me side effects of the meds, though.  I am starting to sleep a lot again, and I am not even on any sleep meds.  I am worried a bit about that.  Part of me worries that it is depression sneaking up on me, but I really don't think it is.  I am afraid that the Adderall is not working as well as it was, and the other meds are making me sleepy.  I don't know, though, because some nights, I can't sleep.

My current relationship is still going very well.  I am very much in love with him.  Honestly, it feels like we have known each other so much longer than just 4 months.  I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.  Don't get me wrong, things haven't been PERFECT, we've had our moments.....but all in all, everything is working great.  Living together is going well, and overall we haven't gotten too annoyed by each other's company ;)  I have found that I don't hold back around him, and allow myself to say what I feel.  I don't let things bottle up and stew.  I think that's part of the reason I feel like things are going so well for both of us.  He is definitely not afraid to say what he things or how he feels, so I guess it makes me feel the same way.  It's so much better that way!!
