    That I should probably take more often then I

    do. I'm gonna end up in like a diabetic coma if I don't. Oh well, I'd just get yelled at for it if that did happen. I'd be in a coma and if I woke up from it id wake up to screaming. Yeah, I'm bad at remembering my pills.

    Guess what? My doses got doubled.

    So now I'm re experiencing the side affects. I can't keep my head still. I hardly want to eat, but I have to. My whole body is twitching and I'm either freezing or super hot. And I end up saying stupid things out loud. Of course my mother was against it. And as for me, right now...

    I never take it on time

    and sometimes I just forget. So either that is causing my depression or I'm just no good with this course. Again. I don't know. I hate work and I hate school. Doomed to be a deadbeat? Might I end myself now.
