    Coming off any psychiatric medication will alter your mood. I came off of Valium, 20mg worth over a 5 month period and it was anything BUT fun. However, I wonder if you have ever sat down and prioritized what you need to be doing. I learned of a system where you use numbers 1, 2 & 3. The number 1 means it has to be done THAT DAY and it CANNOT WAIT. Number 2 means it is still important but life won't stop if I don't do it today. It can wait until tomorrow. The number 3 then means it is the least important. These are usually things that can be put off like picking up items from the dry cleaner. Try using some sort of prioritizing system and maybe your life will get better.
    If you like colours better, use the stop light setup. Red means STOP - this MUST be done TODAY. Green means go ahead and put it off until another time and another day. Orange is somewhere in the middle. Do you have to make that call today or can it wait until tomorrow? Does that have to be done today or can it wait a couple of days.
    Whatever way you find easiest for you, try prioritizing your life and that includes SCHEDULING IN ME TIME & EXERCISE. If that means cutting out an hour on the computer, do it. The computer will still be there when you are done!

    Best wishes.

    The tingling in your feet could be so many things. You should mention it to your doctor. Keep trying with the schedule and the nutrition and hopefully something will start getting better. Take care of yourself.

    Could your husband get up early enough to make his own lunch and breakfast and take some of the pressure off of you? Or help with the dishes or other household duties? My ex made his own each morning which save me to take care of the kids for school and then myself for work.
