I would prefer to use a different method than fighting, but currently that is not possible.

This past week:
  • medication: 5 mg Aripiprazole a.m., 10 mg Aripiprazole before sleep

  • exercise: walking
  • diet: made certain to eat breakfast every day, ate four meals a day

  • mood: ok all mornings upon rising
