Jordan - pink

Updates, lessons and some whining, too

It's been one of those couple days which made me think that I really need to move out of my parents' place again. It seems that nothing I do is ever right - I take too many pills, I don't eat right, I don't get enough fresh air, I spend too much time in from of the computer, I don't help them enough and so on and so on. They didn't like me doing NaNo and they didn't like me juice feasting either. I originally only moved in because my father couldn't work for over six month and they needed some help around the house, but now, since he still isn't back on full hours, we don't have the money for me to move out again, especially with Sis wanting to move out next year. Only she will probably be moving and I'll still be stuck here :-( But enough whining and some updates on my life instead:

I concluded my juice feast after one month and overall I'm very happy with what I achieved. I lost some weight and managed to reduce my meds without suffering too bad withdrawal. There was some, but it was only nothing near out-of-my-mind-bad. I didn't on the other hand, make the 50k for NaNoWriMo. It's not the first time that's happened and once again I learned that a) I'm a slow writer in general and b) I need a lot of prep to be able to pull this off. I could probably have done it, but the story was broken beyond repair anyways. So, lessons learned all around :-) Plans for December include further reduction of my meds - I want to try and see if I can function without abilify. On the cheerier side there are decorations to be made, presents to be bought and new raw recipies to be tried out.
