One of the common symptoms of clinical depression is that people who suffer from it have a very difficult time waking up in the morning and they tend to need lots of sleep. I ran out of Wellbutrin, my anti-depressant, a couple days ago. Last night I went to bed around 1:30AM, a typical time for me, but this morning I just couldn't wake up. I hit the snooze button on my alarm once and that's all I remember. I must have turned it off at some point without wakingup enough for that action to register in my conscious mind. I woke up again at 8:10AM, 10 minutes after I was supposed to be at work. There was no way I could make it to work without being noticed by my boss, and he and his fucking nazi work ethic both hate it when I'm late. So I knew I had to call in and lie. So I called in and said there was a serious illness in the family and that I had to go out to my parents house. Half of that is true; my dad's aunt Lilian had two heart attacks and bypass surgery on Saturday and her doctor advised her immediate family to call everyone else because she wasn't doing well. However, this didn't require me to go to my parents house. I haven't heard anything more about Lilian. So I woke up ten minutes after I was supposed to be at work, and because of my boss's overactive work ethic, those ten minutes changed my entire day. I told him I needed to take the morning off and he told me to take the whole day. So I did. And I thought to myself, "hell, if I'm going to take the day off, I'm going back to bed." Every time I would roll over, I'd think about what I was going to do today. Wash the dishes, get caught up on homework, go to the pharmacy, the bank, the gas station and the pet store. When I finally woke up and looked at the clock, it was 1:30PM. Over half my day, gone, and I still had a full day's worth of work to do. So of course going to the pharmacy to get more Wellbutrin was a priority. I've now done everything except the homework, and it's 6:30PM. I have a LOT of homework to do in the next few weeks, which sucks. I'm busy enough as it is. I missed a 200 point test in my online Lit class because I didn't check the site frequently enough.
