Good psychiatrist visit...
The meeting with the old/new psych went pretty well, I think. He thinks the other psych's treatment approach is not aggressive enough, with regards to my bipolar disorder, and that if that can be controlled, it will help immensely with my anxie... Read more
Happy 19th to my darling dh...
Today was the 19th anniversary of the day I finally convinced dh to be my boyfriend. At the ripe old age of 16, I had finally hooked the man I would go on to marry a little more than 4 years later. We had met in a chat room 6 months earlier an... Read more
A somewhat more normal day...
Beto decided it was time for me to wake up this morning, before I decided it was time for me to wake up. He was stomping all over me, and meowing. And then when I'd start to move, he'd start kneading me and present his head for some pets. I m... Read more
Frustrated, but hanging in there...
Pretty sure I have a tapeworm. I have been hungry all stinkin' day!
I woke up and had some breakfast. It wasn't a big breakfast, but it should still have filled me up for a couple hours at least. Nope. An hour later I was super hungry a... Read more
Woo hoo for exceeding my step goal!
I woke this morning without an alarm, so great start to the day! I had some healthy breakfast, ran to Dollar Tree for a moment, and then met The Buddy to walk. We walked in the mall because... hellacious heat. It was muggy, soupy, and the sun... Read more
Lovely dinner out!
Dh and I just got home from having dinner with an SP friend. We went to an Indian place, and dh and I had never been to one. He doesn't have a lot of foods he dislikes, but the foods he dislikes, he REALLY WON'T EAT. We didn't know anyone in ... Read more
A gift from the recycling gods...
Last night ended really quite well. Dh and I had a drink while we relaxed here at home. Afterward I laid on the couch and he sat in his chair and we talked for a couple of hours about everything and nothing. Finally sometime around 2 am, I go... Read more
Some good news!
They did my grandmother's ulcer surgery today, and it all went well! The doctor said the ulcer was the biggest he'd ever seen, and he didn't understand how she wasn't in excruciating pain. He also said that it's possible the pain she was havin... Read more
Just making a shorty tonight. I went out for coffee with an SP buddy and just got home a bit ago and am about to hop in the shower.
But a quick update on my grandmother and stepdad. My grandmother does have an ulcer, and it is considerabl... Read more
Feeling a bit better tonight...
I managed to fall asleep without a bunch of anxiety drama last night, which was amazing. I was afraid I'd be awake all night, but I did manage to sleep.
I started waking up around 5 am, and slept fitfully until 8:30. When I checked my pho... Read more
Man, what a day!
Woke up this morning when my alarm went off and got dressed to go to the psychiatrist. I was anxious for the appointment, knowing things very well might not go my way. I felt like I was on pins and needles in the waiting room, so I was glad sh... Read more
Well that was traumatic...
I just had to give the Heimlich maneuver to the dog after she nearly choked to death. That was not good for my anxiety levels. Ugh. Thankfully she's okay, though I'm not sure I am. I'm pretty sure this face says "No, I didn't learn any sort ... Read more
Trying to be tough...
Today we got some news that is good for dh, and not so good for me. They're switching him back to working nights. I've been really struggling with anxiety at night anyway, but could tell myself "Dh is right down the hall sleeping if you need h... Read more
The First Park Pics of the Season!
Last night was seriously rough. As has become the norm for me lately, anxiety set in on me. Worse than normal, I think. I was absolutely miserable and felt completely hopeless. I told myself I'd feel better this morning, and eventually manag... Read more
Maybe I'm ready to get it together?
Dh and I went shopping as soon as he got off work this morning, so my day got off to an early start. We went out for breakfast, where I downed a few cups of coffee to get me going. My brain wasn't quite ready, I think.
Once we were done e... Read more
