I am feeling much better as my meds are stabilized. I do worry that I will gain weight, slow down, lose creativity, and all the other effects that come from meds but I recognize I need them. I definitely feel more capable of doing things around the house and keeping up with daily life events. I may not get to be a top biology researcher or even an adjunct professor like I hope to but I am no longer scared for each new day. That is more than I could have asked for just a few weeks ago. The present is no longer the blank page, the future is. It is up to me to fill it with my hopes and dreams
