Well, after being informed of my mother's Friday evening death on Sunday afternoon, I "decided" to "take Monday and Tuesday off". That is, I went to bed, without food or water, for two days.
Luckily, my wife didn't leave me, and I had a doctor's appointment for Wednesday that I honored. He suggested Abilify for bipolar disorder, and I started taking it.
Now, I know it's probably too early to feel significant effects, and all, but at least my wife and her kids were supportive over Thanksgiving. It was a pretty good weekend, overall. So who knows ... "Turn the page", maybe.
