Hi, all.

I have decided that I'm feeling a bit more stable than before... meaning that I feel stable enough to come back here and check in. I think I will be around more now.

Medication increase is helping, Wednesday will be a full week on the new dosages and I do feel a bit better. I'm by no means feeling fantastic and wonderful, but I am able to face the day and not cower in a ball on the couch all day long. I'm catching up on much-needed sleep and trying to reduce stress (hahah!).

Hopefully I will be working soon in a little gift shop in Bar Harbor. They are looking for someone who has experience selling jewelery (that would be me) and as a result of that, my resume, and a quick, on-the-spot interview, I am apparently at the top of a hefty stack of applications. I hope it works out. I will call the manager today and see what's going on. Keep your fingers crossed -- I really need this job.

Still waiting to hear from the graduate program I applied to. The longer the wait, the more pessimistic I become. Oh well, if I wind up not getting in, I have contingency plans -- I'll keep up the job, try to save some money, and keep working on my peer support certification. At the end of my lease, on November 30, I will pack up and go back to Kansas (please don't make any "Wizard of Oz" references... I've heard them all).

So that's me in a nutshell right now. Hope everyone is doing okay.
