I took half of my Risperidone, something that she wanted to wean me off of anyway, and half of the Lithium, but all at once as she - the stupid psych nurse with an ENTIRE YEAR of experience - instructed. Result? I did not stand there and piss myself with my body on fire and my organs wanting to crawl out of their ugly skin suit. I felt sort of sleepy, and I slept.
Oh my gosh , ain't that a trip?
No one died, least of all me, and I did not experience the expected horrific side effects of moving up TOO GODDAMN FAST, DUMBASS.
Tomorrow begins at least 30 days of partial/outpatient (hopefully) hospitalization; I am at the hospital for the majority of the day, but am allowed to go home in the evening. I have other health problems that require immediate attention, but apparently this comes first.
