Crazy Silly Mind Games

So one of those things about drugs like cryptospam, is that it’s vitally important not to go around missing doses all willy-nilly. Not only does it mess you up in the short term, but in the long term it can reduce the overall effectiveness of the drug. So of course, lately I’ve been going around missing doses, all willy-nilly. The problem is, cryptospam is supposed to be taken with food. So my routine for some time, has been to take it with lunch. However, the past few weeks or so, my routine has been all disrupted and I’ve been missing lunch quite a bit, or having it very late in the day, like after work.

So, instead of having my cryptospam every day around noonish, sometimes it’s more like fiveish, and more often, it’s neverish because I keep forgetting, late in the day.┬áThis seems to be making the microdizzies worse (and more frequent) and I think it’s making me more forgetful, although I can’t remember if that’s entirely true or not.

My sleeping patterns have been more disruptificated too, I keep waking earlier and earlier, which results in being tireder and tireder during the day then falling asleep earlier – so I wake even earlier the next day. I was able to break that cycle last night though, with a couple supercoffees in the evening that kept me up till 1am, and today I slept in till almost 7am!

I’m supposed to see the brain doctor this week, not sure if I’ll tell him about the erratic drug consumption – he’ll just get all concerned about it. I guess I should tell him about the messed-up sleep patterns though, and the several-days-long headaches…

At least, when I do remember to take it regularily, the cryptospam does what it’s supposed to. I just need some kind of thing to remind me to take it, wif my noms.
