I'm by myself, but not a whole lot going on. I still have a sense of being in lala-land, however. Just waiting to finish my sentence so I can go home, take some Benadryl, and go to sleep.

With some fires to put out toward the end of the night, it's like I'm back to my usual present self! That felt good!

Of those listed, I feel I've been having this:

-Marked slowness of movements
-Bizarre gait
-Repetitive attempts to carry out an action
-Facial grimace
-Fixed expression
-Fixed empty smile
-Fixed gaze
-Mouth and tongue movements
-Head bent forward
-Arms bent at elbows and wrists
-Odd finger and hand postures
-Freezing in postures in the course of an activity
-Echolalia
-Jerky speech
-Lack of modulation of tone
-Lack of modulation of volume
-Stereotyped answers to questions
-Overeactivity
-Sudden bizarre acts


I can relate to many of these things too, most often in a mild degree, but notable to myself. I have come to think, that they may be mild autistic symptoms.
Slowness of movements is often a depressive symptom. I guess, many of them probably are.

I took FMLA off again today. To be awake is like unto a nightmare, so I've been taking Benadryl to keep sleeping today and I will take more to sleep tonight.
