|01:27 am - a fleeting view of day 6|
First day on full dose. Stiffness and need-to-strechiness in my muscles.
Pshrink session went pretty well. A couple things came up that I swear I had already mentioned, but it's easy to lose track, and if it didn't make it into her notes (as it might not have) it wasn't the sort of thing to make an impression.
Got blood drawn for a number of tests, including monitoring liver enzymes for the naltrexone. (Correlation is not causality; the population taking naltrexone is often traveling with well-battered livers to begin with so there's no guarantee it's the naltrexone elevating the levels, but I don't object to keeping an eye on things and I was about due for an albumin panel anyway.)
Went to the Zoo in the afternoon with uly and saw lions and tigers, meerkats and red pandas, and a very friendly donkey (which might have gotten smuggled home had we not been driving a 2-seater convertible. cjo, you can thank me later.) The day turned really gorgeous, sunny if a touch cool; my favorite weather.
Happy belated birthday to uly & grouchychris, since this is going to post on the 26th in spite of being about the 25th.
Which reminds me to add wakefulness to the side-effects list and bring it all full circle.
