I've decided I'm not going to work today. My regular doctor has same-day appointments this morning, so I'm going to go and see him. I've been finding that my moods are all over the place (crazy roller coaster), and I'm having trouble with sleep (I'm always tired, regardless of the amount of sleep I get, and will often sleep for 2-3 hours, then be wide awake for 2 hours in the middle of the night). I also have a crazy dry mouth and am thirsty all the time, even when I'm getting my 8+ glasses of water per day.
I'm on medication for depression, and we increased the dose in January. I think I have 2 different kinds of depression: a low-level year-round depression AND seasonal affect disorder. My depression is substancially worse November - March. I saw on my calendar that we change the clocks in a week and I was euphoric about this!
