1) NO consuming alcohol while under any sort of stress (including finals week!)
2) When relaxed, I am allowed half of one regular serving of whatever I may be imbibing (note: this may change to a complete ban if I ever decide to attempt it and it turns out badly).
I had one beer tonight, and it's doing strange things to my mood and my attitude. I blame this partly on the stress involved in writing a paper for a class that I don't fully understand (at least, not as well as I wish I did), and partly on the combination of that one beer with the fact that I'm also on an antidepressant that messes with the chemicals in my brain. I should be smarter than to do that, but I just had to experiment. Well, experiment over, test failed, not to be attempted again. One drink used to mellow me out; now it makes be both hyperactive and depressed. So. That was a bad idea. I'm going to go to sleep now, and try and conquer things tomorrow morning.
