I've done a lot of thinking about drinking since lockdown began. Of course when it first started, we were party hardy, drinking quarantinis and just relishing not having to go in to work. But mental illnesses/mood disorders and alcohol often don’t mix, and with massive swaths of time on my hands to think, I made some discoveries.⁠

In the past, I've thought alcohol was a mood lifter for me, a way to relax and feel more at ease. Many an A/B test in lockdown have revealed that that was a misconception! I've now come to believe that for me, alcohol is an amplifier. That means if I feel bad already, alcohol will make me feel worse, and if I feel good already, alcohol will likely amp me up even more.⁠ ⁠ So if I've had a bad day, a drink to relax is a terrible idea. And if I've had a good day, a celebratory night cap is probably fine.⁠

But another thing I discovered about alcohol is that while I frequently wish I hadn't drunk, I almost never wish I had. Have I ever come home/woken up and thought, man I wish I had had alcohol. I don't think so!⁠

So I made this chart to track those feelings. It can be used for anything you're wondering about your relationship to, not just booze! Wondering e.g. if you really love watching SVU all day, or if it's something you'd like to move away from? You can use this chart for that too, haha.⁠

A simple, cute, objective tracker for those of us who take daily medication!

For those of us who struggle with mental illness, lockdown has been especially challenging. If you're like me and you lost your job to Covid, the days just blend together like a massive lump of time. I have no idea what day it is 😜⁠ ⁠

Naturally, my depression and anxiety have worsened in this time, which was initially compounded by the fact that I kept forgetting to take my medication! So I made this chart to keep track, and you can use it too if you like!⁠ ⁠

The decision to start, alter, or end a psychiatric drug program is one that only you can make with the help of a licensed professional. I am not a licensed professional! But for me personally, I can say I would not be here today if it weren't for the help I get from my SSRI, and despite the openness with which people talk about mental illness today, I still feel embarrassed about it.⁠ ⁠ If you take a daily pill to help you stay above board, I hope this little chart is helpful to you!

This chart is intended to help you keep track of pills you are already taking under the supervision of a doctor. Please consult with a doctor before starting, altering, or ending a medical regimen. I am a person who struggles with anxiety and depression—I am NOT a licensed professional!
