Having discipline pays off. I know this, yet at the same time carry very little of it. On Sunday, I was horribly, inconsolably depressed. I will admit I did have morbid thoughts of just taking all the lithium at once. But I took a nap instead. I woke up with the migraine still in full throttle and the thoughts starting to seep in again.
I made myself some tea and stayed in bed the rest of the evening — I had a late nap.
I fell asleep roughly around midnight — as I have been for a while now, it’s driving me nuts as I like to be asleep by 10:30 at the latest — and woke up around 7:40. The migraine was gone. I felt happy almost, or at least not as morbid and depressed as I had been just the night before. I got up, got the dogs out, took out the trash, ran to CVS for coffee and half and half, and when I got back I started applying to jobs like a madwoman.
I received an email back from a company I applied to. They want to interview me!
Now, I only hope I can impress them in order to get the job offer. Being employed right now is beyond crucial.
