So my last blog post wasn't too hopeful. But I'm going to try to be more optimistic with this one.
We're doing better. We added a third dose of Abilify in the middle of the day. I find that if I give it to Taz a little early we can head off a lot of problems. If we're late, we have big problems. The afternoon dose has gone up a little too. I have to give it to him by 5pm or we head downhill for the whole evening.
If he gets his meds on time and we keep the environment quiet and as stress-free as possible then he is manageable. Not perfect, but much better than before. If things get chaotic, noisy, or stressful for him, then he gets chaotic and loses all stability. So it's a very careful balance.
Balance. We're back to the word again.
I feel like Taz is a room that we have to feng shiu. We can't move the furniture around too much or the chi will be off. Or something like that. I don't know much about the art of Asian decorating.
The point is....we're okay.
