Ich bin betrunken

... yeah, I forgot to eat. And I've had a leeetle too much beer to be called sober. (I passed sober about two hours ago...)

Happy Winchester Day! TMwenchpixie - it being Friday 13th and all..

So I was at the doctor today. I've been psyching myself up for this all week which is why I've been a little standoffish in person and quiet on the online front. Last time I was there we talked about reducing my dosage on my meds. I don't want to. So I was expecting a fight today. I went in and said "Last time I was here we talked about scaling back my medication, well I don't think it's time for that."

His response? "Okay then."

I explained why, because I had my little speech rehearsed and dammit I wasn't going to let it go to waste, and he was absolutely fantastic about it. So I have my meds. For another 56 days at least. And he seems happy to let me dictate when I reduce them.

This is a big deal to me so yay! (And yes, I remember the girl who said "But I don't want pills...." way back when, but hey, we live and learn.)

And, he spotted my 'groovin' on the inside/facing forward' awareness bracelet thingy and was asking about it, and we got to talking about my adventures in re-learning the guitar and the trials and tribulations of that. And I feel so much more positive about things than I have in a long time. So yay. And I'm not (for once) being sarcastic there.

Plus - I'm still looking for a Faith-at-the-crater-soundtrack. Thank you to all of you who've commented so far, and if I was slightly less inebriated I would link to the post but it's the one before this one, I'd love to know what the rest of you think!

(Yes, I am writing again.)
