Dedication to Medication Vol. I



Day One- Half dose and I'm pretty much feeling like I could take over as the lead singer of Fishbone. I'm jittery and wired for sound, yet oddly can tell I need a nap. I'm purposefully making trips up and down the stairs to burn off excess energy. Stomach is a little queasy. Hey, I'm a Master's student in psychology. I figured I'd document the whole ugly cycle of leveling out on meds. As far as I can tell, I am behaving like my cat Edward, who occasionally rips through the house like a white tornado only to crash fifteen minutes later. Hey, this should keep me entertained for the rest of the summer. Just don't let me do something stupid like sign up for a marathon while I'm feeling like this.

I also won't let you start a Fishbone cover band.

Now that would be funny!

The Fishbone reference makes it much easier to imagine how you're feeling.

How long does it take to work out the dosage? I think it's pretty cool that you're documenting the process.

It usually takes about three weeks to sort it out and have it level out in your body. In the meantime, it's like a smorgasboard of side effects.
