Yesterday I had a long day out. Left my apartment around 11:30 to go to a psych doc appointment up at the VA. The appointment started a little late ’cause my doc was tangled in a phone call, but it was a good meeting. A few times in the past, we’ve discussed the possibility of adding a sleep aid to my medication regimen due to outside influences (like the 2016 presidential election cycle). Before, though, we decided to wait and see what would happen, and things always tapered off to the point where it was determined I didn’t necessarily need a sleep aid. This time was different. I’ve been having difficulty sleeping the past few months since I last saw my psych doc. Part of that is admittedly me sitting up with Daz, but that’s not every case, and I do try to sleep most nights. But for the past few months (even before meeting Daz), I’ve had difficulty sleeping two or three nights out of the week. I’ll either not get tired at all, or I’ll wake up after lying down. We’d discussed this the last time I saw my psych doc back in I think May, and we decided to wait and see how things would develop. So, the result was that things haven’t really changed, so my doc prescribed some Trazodone. I’ll be getting it n the mail within about 2 weeks.
After my appointment up at the VA, I went directly to the Pride Center. You know, I took my laptop, but I didn’t have its cord or peripherals. LOL It was another busy night there, with 5 or 6 groups meeting. Lots of people hung out in the lobby, and I chatted with them. I also did the condom bowl. LOL Because, really. Teens are going to have sex—maybe not all, but that’s not the point. My point is, denying things like condoms and to teens is just plain stupid. Preaching abstinence doesn’t work, people. It just doesn’t.
*steps down off of soapbox*
But have a picture of the pride center’s condom bowl anyway.
