I ran for Southern Utah University for almost 3 years, but recently decided to step away from the competitive environment of the NCAA to focus on improving my mental health. I also served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri.

I had ECT done early this morning at 5:30. This time around they induced two siezures instead of just one. I am really tired now and my memory is terrible. I slept through breakfast because I couldn't keep my eyes open. But I am feeling loads better than I did when I first got here. The staff all say that I look brighter, happier and more alive and so do my parents. They say I have more color in my cheeks. I really am so surprised at how much better I'm feeling, I never thought I'd feel this good ever again. I'm probably an 8 or 9 on the scale from 0 to 10, 10 being the best. I'm getting there slowly but surely. My mom says she's happy that I'm being so open about it and not ashamed when my friends come to visit or anything because it's a mental illness and not something that I would ever consider in normal circumstances. I never thought of it like that, but it's true. I definitely wouldn't consider it now because I am feeling so much better. My social worker talked about potentially discharging me from the hospital tomorrow morning, we'll see if that happens. She said it just can't be on a day I have ECT and my doctor has to be on board as well. And then I need to get a few other appointments set up.

It may be a good idea to keep blogging if you keep losing memories. This way you can have a record.

So I just finished reading Bram Stoker's Dracula. There was this lady that kept getting her blood sucked by Dracula. Her friend, before knowing that each night a vampire was draining her blood, would keep a journal of her and how some days she looked good with the pink coming back to her cheeks, but other days she looked ghastly pale. This entry reminded me of that. LOL!
