After my admission into a residential facility, my husband decided to shut off my phone. It terrified me. Well, here I am day 4 of being in the real world and it isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Yeah, eventually I want it back, but for now I am okay focusing on me without the distractions of a phone. Any body else disconnect from technology as part of their recovery?
I started a new med this morning. Walbutren. I probably spelled that wrong. It is supposed to affect my dopamine levels, increase energy, and suppress appetite. Sounds like a dream pill, right? Well, everybody I have asked about it has said they love it or they hate it. No in between. Well, I’m hoping I love it because I could use some extra energy. Since I’ve been home the latest I’ve stayed up to is 9pm and I am falling asleep walking into my room at that point.
So, tomorrow is my first day alone since starting residential treatment. I’m kind of nervous, but I have my schedule set up and plenty of things to do. I should be fine. Right? Right. Maybe I will post a picture of the oreo trifle that I am making tomorrow 😉
