Same forewarning as my first post on the subject - general discussion of mental health/psych problems and meds/therapy, but nothing specifically triggering beyond that.

I managed to make an okay start of things in September and the beginning of October - my main tool was buying a pocket notebook I could carry with me and write things down in like daily to-do lists and shopping lists. This has definitely helped with the 'forgetting stuff' thing because when I remember something that I need to do later I can write it down right away, and everything's in one place so it's easy to reference when I go 'wait, where did I need to go again?' Also, [personal profile] purplecat introduced me to Workflowy and while online list-making usually doesn't help me much over the short term, it totally fits my LISTS OF LISTS OF LISTS project-planning style.

Now the lousy stuff - I haven't been able to get much of a push in motivation, and sometime mid-October I realized it had been starting to go rapidly downhill, which has only gotten worse in November. I've been managing to get through 'need to do' things like grocery shopping and laundry and getting my car inspected, but almost everything creative has gotten shuffled off into 'I'd like to do this thing but not enough to move from this spot on the sofa'. And my insomnia has managed to get even worse, to where I'm waking up at four am and then not falling asleep again for another three hours, and flipping between sleeping like seven hours a night and fourteen. And it's miserable and I hate it.

I think at this point the real solution is 'find a new therapist' which means tomorrow I need to force myself to... actually make phone calls and stuff. And somehow work out scheduling around having a seasonal job with UPS. Sigh.
