hi all. i'm starting to recoup after that hiccup. can't sleep worth a crap so i've kind of decided to stop trying. aka stop taking the handful of OTC sleep meds that aren't working at all. so i'll probably be "awake" a few days then crash hopefully by the weekend. i was up until 530a last night and napped (sorta) until noon. at least as long as my brain is functioning and not zombied I can get some projects done or more towards completed than not.

nutrition info .. TONS available on this site. i've learned loads in the past year ..

oops .. oh yea .. i have trouble realizing what day it is .. even though i knew it was the 1st yesterday i didn't make the connection of starting a new APRIL thread on here .. i will do that right after i hit post ...

let's do all the follow up chatter in APRIL :-)

Hey all! I was looking for an April thread but I guess y'all haven't gotten to it yet. I got out of the clinic yesterday (mental inpatient) and I'm tired. They put me on Halidol, which gets rid of the hallucinations but leaves me mentally confused. I hope it calms down as I get used to it.

I'm sitting here on the computer, just listening to music mainly and just loving it. They don't allow mp3 players and there's just a tv, so just sitting back and listening to music is heaven.

Happy Easter Monday! Ordinary day for me today. Yesterday spent Easter with my family at my sister's place. That was really nice. I really enjoyed it. We watched basketball and ate, lol. I did pretty good in the eating department. I didn't eat until I was stuffed.

Today back to work. Got my hours in and my workout in.

For the last few days the right side of my neck and my right shoulder blade/collar bone area has been sore and stiff. Not sure why. Only loosens up when I work out, but stiffens back up afterwards.

Got on the scale today and it reads the same - always somewhere between 144 pounds and 147. Gosh I feel like I have to eat dirt and grass just to lose some significant weight. I did start trying to fill half my plate with veggies so maybe I should continue to be patient. Wish I had money for a nutritionist just to take the guess work out of what foods work for me. Then again, if I had the money for a nutritionist, I could really stock up on healthier options. Purchasing healthy food is expensive. To be able to go to the grocery store and have the freedom to try all those options available - WOW.

That said, I really think the plain yogurt (can be plain greek yogurt too) is doing miracle work with the bloating and gas for me. YES!

Lucinda, sorry you had a gall bladder attack. Take care of yourself, and I hope you feel better soon. I don't know much about gall bladder attacks, but I can tell you were not a happy camper.

Have a great evening everyone!

I had another gall bladder attack on Saturday which left me weak and sleepy on Sunday didn't have the energy to get on the computer. Did have my Dad pick me up to go to lunch because Sat. was my grocery shopping day and that didin't happen so nothing to eat in the house so needed to go out to the buffet and eat soft foods that were gluten free. I did refurbish my strength and went grocery shoppiing and bought alot of jello, pudding and flavored water add ins. Spent more than I had hopped but need to start shopping for my Daughters too. I need to take most of my things because she doesn't buy them for herslef or the kids. I need to stay well so Wed. they will do my surgery! I am sick of being sick! Help at home never got back with me so I don't have to worry about them seeing my dirty apartment which I need to fisnih cleaning today since I don't have to sit till tomorrow. I wish I could vegitate at home so I wouldn't be exposed to more sickness but that can't be helped. I'm going t board my dog if they have room so there isn't a chance he would get away while being taken out and ran over they have 1 highway on the other side of them an a one way that's busy in front. At least at the Vet's office there is a fenced in area and they take them out on a leash pretty safe plus very regular times plus feed them on time too. Hope all are well hope to see more on the site today. take care and have a good day. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

it sounds like a lot but really it was a couple of hours before i got stuck with the 5 hour photo crapola. i'm exhausted but still can't sleep. it gets tougher and tougher each day.

at least the sun is shining today. i'll be out in it when i goto take some survey thing and stop at walmart to pick up the photo order. hopefully the vitamin D will help.

lucinda: you'll do great through those tests and stuff. do what you can to relax.

Kim it sounds like you have been pretty busy. Don't forget to rest ever now and then.

Today at 10:00am I go for Pre-op, 11:00 Mamogram, 11:30am bone density test, 1:30pm Therapist and 3:00pm to 9:00pm sit with Grandkids. This is the most I've had to do in one day in along time. The last 2 days we had been without hot water while they were replacing the old hot water heaters I was afraid I wouldn't have any hot water to wash my hair or shower! I got lucky the heater that goes to my apartment got hooked up and I had hot water. Thank God for little things! The whole apartment building was looking pretty scruffy me included. With this house I can take my dog, Toruk over to my Daughter's so he won't have to wait so long to go outside and eat plus he can play with their dog. I don't agree with some of my Daughters parenting skills. Last night she let my 13 year old GRandson have 4 friends over after 9:00pm when he was suposse to be watching his Sister. They were sitting in the complete dark and I don't know if they had beer, drugs or what to do after I left. I had to get to be because I was getting up at 6:30am today. Even though it wasn't a school night I don't thing 13-15 year olds should be unsupervised in mixed company or other wise. I left with second thoughts the Sheriff leaves across the street and if they smoke anything he might find out and raid the place. Plus my Grandson has his own door to the back yard so he can come and go as he pleases. I think allittle to much freedom. May be I'm just old fashion but I think it's wrong. Wvery one have a good day and take care. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

been a flurry of fury activity. was agitated most of the day and never figured out why. got laundry done. chiropractic appointment done. OCD rampage cleaned the apartment (bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen, trash), took off nail polish, some other random stuff, then thought i'd print some graphics for DBT and just finished that... was super frustrating and roadblocks and took me like 5 hours to do something I thought would take 5 minutes. needless to say i'm glad i figured something out. later i'll try to work on my sister's virus ridden laptop and whatever else is stacked up on the to do list.

Kim congratulations on the new caseworker sounds like they really want to match you up with someone on your level.

ISee today our weather is sunny and 54* and I have to walk my dog regardless of the weather and temp. I at least get fresh air everyday!

Helped my Daughter unpack some stuff yesterday they moved into a smaller house but has a nice landlord who is her friend. I hope it goes alright sometimes you can lose friends in situations like that. I have to get use to a new bus schedule and other things but my Granddaughter will be glad to see me I think her big Brother will be riding home with her now that sports are done. Have a good day and take care. Lucinda

Kim,

Sounds like your new caseworker will be cool. The more proactive the better!

The weather here was in the 40s/upper 50s but sunny. I didn't go out though. I got my exercise on the bike.

Massage sounds so NICE...

i am exhausted. but nothing now until a massage tomorrow at 2p. girl just opened a new shop here in town and gave me almost 50% discount. how could i refuse. am not gonna worry about what needs done .. like laundry, vacuuming, cleaning, shower, eating, etc ... just going to veg for a bit.

mother nature is PMSing or something .... in the past hour we've had gray, dismal, wind, sunshine, rain, sleet, slush, calm

i met with a client advocate / case manager / something or another from my insurance company earlier today. great visit. he's going to get me a new caseworker.. one that is proactive and hands on and doesn't mind texting or emailing instead of lengthy phone calls and postcards. that caseworker is supposed to coordinate and interact with me and all my doctors and specialists to get the best help and treatment for me. and if an hours limit comes up like it almost did for counseling and DBT they can break through that with their connections. i think positive stuff will come from the in person meet and greet today.

i had a blast in Austin .. the whole journey... even when i got back i saw the Broadway show on Tues (opening night in Columbus) and then also the Sat matinee ... the cast and crew were sick and they cancelled sat night and sun matinee but went ahead with sun matinee.. tomorrow night they are in Kalamazoo, MI

yesterday and today i carved out a few hours and rewrote my resume. i hadn't updated one since 2006. i had building block pieces already done but it was def time to start over and word things better and highlight various accomplishments and add on last job stuff. I sent it to the guy a little bit ago. who knows what will happen. i wasn't even looking for a job. i'm still working on me and getting healthier. but hey if i can merge technology and music i love into an industry i enjoy .. AND get paid ..well WHOOOHOOOO .. why would i turn that down!

i'm exhausted though. not being home for two weeks has taken a toll. with antibiotics and rest and airborne I've held off a serious illness. my chest doesn't feel like anything is growing in it anymore. but i need to shower, do laundry, clean the bathroom, clean the kitchen, clean the litter box, vacuum, go through the mail, organize medical binder, organize DBT binder, do DBT homework, catch up on internet stuff like FB, SP, twitter, email, etc.... and still keep up with doctor appointments and whatnot. got 3 appts tomorrow and take my sister's laptop back to her if I can fix it.. which i need to power it up right now and see if i can. whew. yep. tired. but muddling through. it'll be ok. i've learned to "be kind to myself" ... so instead of chiding myself for eating candy .. i drink some more water and stretch .. i eat some cough drops and wash my hands .. i take mental breaks .. i breathe .. figure out what is important and how soon it needs done .. what can be most beneficial right now .. even if means going to bed instead of finishing a project.. i'll be better off in the morning after some rest than to keep pushing and getting raw.

Hello everyone! Happy Monday evening!

Today was an all right day. My job is short on work, and I'm having to check ever so often during the day for work. I hate that. I like doing my work in the afternoon and getting it all done before dinner. There's probably some work there now since I want to relax and wind down. Not looking forward to my check being short.

I started trying to eat plain yogurt in the evening/night after dinner to combat all that darn bloat. Seems to be working. When I'm not bloated I actually see ab muscles. I really hope that's a good solution.

It's looks like some of you got snow. I wanted snow! Not a blizzard or anything, but maybe 5 or 6 inches. All my area seems to get is rain or a light dusting.

I was so close to having a good night's sleep last night and the night before, but NO. The night before my shoulder hurt, and it was too hot last night. I was going to ride the my-period-makes-me-go-to-sleep thing, but it was for naught. Dear trazodone here I come in a couple hours.

Lucinda, happy to hear your stomach didn't ache today. Sounds like staying away from red meat is good for you!

Mollo - Lucinda is right - everyone has bad eating days. I just do better the next meal. Good that you got a workout in.

Kim - The pictures are AWESOME. They are great! Did you have fun?

Good night, everyone! Hope your day was productive!

the snow continued all night and stopped this morning. I ended up staying at My Daughter's and didn't get much sleep so I came home at 7:30am. My Daughter is starting to move some of her things today before she goes to work and I wanted to shower and have a short break before I go back. the kids didn't have school today so I will have to be there early. No stomach ache today so far but I have been watching what I eat and staying away from red meat. Everyone take care and have a good day. Lucinda

Woke up to the ground covered in white stuff and more coming down! It's been snowing all day long so when I leave from sitting I will have to unbury my SUV again. So much for the spring weather!

Mollo we all have bad eating days just go forward and have a new start. Your Husband sounds like a nice guy a keeper for sure.

I have surgery on april 3rd I find out Friday what time and all the particulars. I am in a positive frame of mind that everything will go well and I won't need help but the first 2 days. I have to get everything cleaned and clean sheets on my bed plus groceries before then so it's all taken care off. Of course my Mom wants me to have an agency come in for 3 days the following week to do the cleaning and laundry which I may go ahead and schedule them. They can also walk my Toruk and take out the garbage so may be it won't be so bad. As long as it's not someone I have worked with I'll be ok that would be embarrassing. Everyone have a good night and take care. Lucinda

A couple of bad eating days for me, but got in my workouts. Today was nice because my husband had off work so we got to spend some time together that we normally don't have. I unfortunately gave him a hard time about *us* because my BPD makes me feel emotionally isolated a lot and I tend to blame it on him. But oh well, he handles it like a pro. He's a real trooper.

Lucinda - Good luck scheduling the surgery. I hope all goes smoothly! I am jealous that you have spring weather. Pittsburgh is so chilly.

Kim - I tried to click the link to look at your pics but it didn't work :-(

Isee - Sorry you are so sleepy, but glad to hear you had a good workout!

I See great job getting your workout in! You will be healther and thinner because of it. Hope you sleep well tonight.

Kim thank you for the pictures I'll look at them when my computer is working right.

It's sunny and 46* out finally spring weather is on it's way! Today I have to start my grocery shopping to get what I need for everyday and next week when I have my surgery. Dread going that's allot to buy and carry. My Mom wants me to line up an agency to come in 3 days during the week after my surgery. I'm not really hep on it because I use to work for them and don't know who I would get I'm going to clean my apartment real good before then and get everything ready to come home early. I guess they can run the vaccum, dust, clean the bathroom and do laundry. I'd hate to ask someone I know to do those things and it's $17.50 an hour for them to be here each day. I really don't feel like visiting with them and am afraid they will have to come early in the morning which would be hard for me to get up and be wearing street clothes. I'm sure she is probably right about needing someone to do those things I guess I can always cancel them if I don't need them better safe then sorry. Today I feel ok no stomach ache or anything else to sirupted the day. If I stick to jello, pudding and oatmeal I'm fine. I'd hate to have my gall bladder out only to discover it is IBS! Oh well everyone have a good day and take care. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Hello everyone! Welcome back Courtney!

Today was a sleepy day for me. I took sleeping pill last night and then my period came on. Sometimes my period can make it better for me to sleep, but I can't rely on it doing that. So I wasn't fully awake until around 4 or 5 o'clock this afternoon. I feel sleepy now though because I got in a really tough workout.

Will have to write more later, kinda tired.

Larissa your lucky to have someone to call at that time of the morning! When your Medicare kicks in you need a sleep study to see if they can find out what went wrong with your cycle.

Mollo I can relate to what you are going through I'm that way most of the time exhausted and not wanting to do anything. I still have to go take care of my Grandkids why my Daughter works. It takes all my energy.

Like an idiot last night I ate allot of red meat and today I am paying for it. I feel like I could throw up and have diarreah. I still have to get around and run my errands then go sit early because the kids are home sick. This is going to be a long day because I'll probably get sick and have no clothes to change into or be able to go home. Take care and have a good day. Oh I am going to have my gall bladder out just have to schedule it. Lucinda

I. Feel. Like. HELL. Biggest binges ever today, exhausted...maybe the two things are connected. Am I exhausted because of all the food I ate, or did I eat so much because I am exhausted? I need to clean my house, but I just don't feel like doing anything, ugh.

Courtney - You were on 9 meds?!? Holy cow. Welcome back though, and I am glad you are doing better.

I'm doing okay... I didn't' fall asleep until after 5am and I woke up at 3pm. I was on the phone with a friend at 4am since I couldn't sleep, and Geo gets mad and says that's why I can't sleep. He doesn't understand how it relaxes me. He reads comics to fall asleep. We all have our thing. Besides, what else is there to do at 4am?

Becci good for you walking Teddy 4x aday! Great exercise! Hope your meeting went well.

Courtney Glad your back! The Grandkids are fine but my Daughter is sick with upper respitory infection and bronchitus. Toruk is great we both have gotten fat and sassy over winter! LOL! Wow allot of changes for your meds and glad you are throught them. Now that your meds are lowered you should feel better. congrats on getting your house cleaned I finally did mine after I started to feel better.

Larissa hi nice to hear from you! Hopefully in May you will get your Drs. and meds all straightened out and start to feel better.

Kim how was your concert with Green Day? Did you have a good time?

The sun is shinging and it is 29* out so it will be a fast walk today. Got to get ready for sitting with the Grandkids and the chanlleneg of homework and a bath. Take care and have a good afternoon. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Hey Larissa~~Some things will never change. My sleep is off too. As u can see. I'm still up off and on throughout the night. Usually around this time (2 am or so). U can text me if u want..I'm still on the Restoril or sleep but I'm thinking of trying the remeron again or maybe going back on the Melatonin. Obviously the Restoril isn't working like it used to. I have yet to find a sleeping pill that works for me for an extended period of time. I'm sorry to hear you're having a tough time. I'm finally coming through mine. I hope u don't have to go inpatient. But, u know what u need to do. I'm sorry u had to quit volunteering too but maybe it is for the best. I know u enjoyed it though. Maybe later on down the road. Take care and talk to u soon...

CarolAnne~ How are u doing! How are things going for you?

Take care all!

Courtney

Hey Courtney, glad to see you back!

I've been going through a lot of changes lately. I had to stop volunteering because of the stress. my sleep has been so off. I go to sleep around midnight, then I wake up around 2-3am and I'm up until 4-5am. I'm so glad for Carol who talks to me then (she's in Hawaii and it's 6 hours earlier there) I've been waking up around 3pm. I need to get my sleep back on track, but Klonopin isn't really helping. May 1st my Medicare kicks in, so I can see my doctors for free. I've already made appointments for May 2-3 for my doctors so I can change my psych and hopefully get a new med change since this isn't working. I'm getting really depressed and then hypomanic. I have my hospital bag packed just in case I have to go inpatient. The funny thing is, the more I get ready to go to the hospital the better I feel. I don't want to go back there. I've managed to be 11 months without going in. I know I can do it!

Hi Becci! Thanks for the welcome! How did the rest of your day go? Did u get your lease straightened out? Hope u get the med situation straightened out? I hope everything worked out for you today. Hope to hear from u tomorrow...Keep your head up. How did your end of Mass. end up today weather wise? We ended up with a few inches of snow but it all got washed away with pouring rain..school delay. Yuck..

Lucinda!! I gave u a big hello! How are u?? I'm sorry things aren't going that great right now. I know how u feel about extra money. It's soo tough out there right now. How are the grand kids? How's Tourak? Thanks for the lovely sentiments..I sure do hope things turn around for you..

Kim--How are things going with you? How was the show? You look great! Love the pic! Thanks for the welcome back!

Today was a good day. Got lots of cleaning done. Found new ways to do housework without aggrevating my back issues. So I was able to do some stuff without much pain. There's still things I know I'll never be able to do again without pain but...The house looks good anyway. Went to Walmart and had to return some stuff and got some groceries. Watched a couple good movies and now I'm winding down to go to bed.

On a positive note, I have been taken off several of my psych meds. I am on a new "cocktail"--as my psych likes to call it. I'm only on 4 meds now as opposed to 9 only 2 months ago. That's why I've been off for 2 months. I was going through some serious med changes. I was taken off 5 meds. One of the meds I'm on is only for side effects (hand tremors). So, basically 3 meds for psych issues and one sleeping pill. WoW...that's great for me. Biggest change was going off of Klonopin which I was on for over 13 years. That was a tough one. Going off of the others was not TOO bad but that one threw me wayyy off. My pain meds also got changed around and I have to go for shots now in my hips. They relieve the pain in my lower back as well as in the top of my hips where the pain has now radiated to. UGH..oh well, what can ya do?

Ok, well..Hope all is well with everyone!

Take care, Courtney

Welcome back Courtney!! Nice to see that you came back while I was away..not that it mattered, but glad you are back! I've not posted in a couple of days: not doing great..out of a med because the Pharmacy called my old prescriber(Psych) and not my new(NeuroPsych), so that I ran out of Trileptal...today we are having quite the storm, roads are slick and I think my med was called in! I need to call and inquire..Still walking Teddie each day, 4X which is great when there is sun shining since when it is cold he goes out, pees, and immediately heads back in the building! Darned little guy is strong!
A Sparked Friend asked me, today, if I suffer an eating disorder: I don't really know-I am not suffering anorexia or bulimia, am not obsessed with food...see my blog today..but really? Where did that come from?! It hit me really bad, that question did...Do I really need another diagnosis? I am tired, have to meet my rental agent to recertify my lease in half an hour and think I'll nap a few minutes first....

Welcome back Courtney!! I've missed you!! I started sitting after having Spring break off and I have to get use to it all over again. Last night was a big struggle and I went home really stressed and frazeled. My Daughter is going to the Dr. today very very sick. Running out of money sucks before the end of the month! I still have bills to pay, need to buy groceries, and buy gas for the SUV. Not enough coming in for all the activity this mth. Something is going to have to go but what? The is no such thing as extra money ever again. Take care and have a good day. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

sister is home resting

mom and i are going to a show tonight

i'm doing well. better than expected actually. i figured with the top of the world elation combined with hives from traveling and taking prednisone that sets off the bp .. and other stress things .. that i'd be all rage. but i'm pretty calm and just enjoying the sunshine.

Hey everybody! I just posted in another topic "good morning ladies"---I thought that was the March chat. Guess not..U can read my post over there if u want. Basically I was saying "HI" to all the "oldies" and the "New" I have yet to meet.

So, how is everyone? Update me..please...I've missed u all. So glad to be back. This time (I hope) is gonna be great! Thanks to all of u who have been there for me while I've been "away". You all mean so much. I'm feeling much better. Finally getting (pretty much gotten) acclimated to the med changes and I'm okay now. So, I'm ready to get back on track mentally and physically. Weighed in today at 214. So, I'm going from there. Slowly and surely.

No promises...No pressure...

Love to u all..

Courtney

Question: what's the craziest / wildest adventure you've embarked on?

i have several .. like moving to LA in 2006 b/c i wanted better weather and someone to hang out with

like this past weekend where i rescheduled everything and borrowed money from family and flew to Austin for SXSW to see Green Day documentary premiers and a concert. .. and along the way met someone who works for DJ Mag and might have a job for me.

I'm so glad I have been able to do this stuff and it's b/c in the crappiest of times i was working on ME. getting healthier and fitter and exercising and eating better and sorting out my mental health and other health issues.

mom sent me a pic while i was gone ... It's better to look back on life and say: "I can't believe I did that." than to look back and say: "I wish I did that."

epic journey is an understatement. i'll try to write something up and post later.

still on top of the world despite some normally supportive folks trying to bring me down with naysaying b/c they assumed wrong stuff. .. and as of 20 min ago just nervous and anxious about my sister. she's having complications with the surgery she had last week. mom went to meet them at the hospital.

Mollo I use to be really bad about doing the would of should of could kind of thinking, then I learned how to live in the moment just one day at a time. When my symptoms are bad it does come back and I hate it. Hope you can think past it and have a better life.

Not to much going on today just a PDr. appointment and then to sit with my grandkids. Leaves my poor Toruk alone for to many hours but the house they are moving to my Daughter will let me take Toruk there. Feeling pretty good to day no stomach ache yet ate jello for breakfast and flavored water that helped. It is raining off and on but not to cold out so can get some walks in. Everyone have a good day and take care. Lucinda

Sorry I haven't been around. Kind of forgot about SP for a few days. I'm OK. Been spending a lot of time in my head worrying about the would've should've could've what-if stuff.

Carol - Sorry to hear your new Dr. experience was less than ideal. Glad to hear the side effects are resolving, but I hope you can find something to regulate you.

Isee - I haven't actually had a lithium level since a couple of weeks after I was put on the stuff. The doc was slacking. And he decided there's no point in checking it now because I am weaning off the med. This doctor is a little odd. He seems very willing to let me do whatever I want. I think if I had insisted on going cold turkey with all of my meds he would've said "if you insist."

Kim - Whoa! That's awesome! Hope you had an awesome time!

Lucinda - you have so many health woes! I want to let you knoe how strong you are to be dealing with all of that. You are stronger than you know!

Becci - Sorry you are having a rough time :-(

RDGISME I feel for you being in a funk and hope it changes soon. Med changes may have added to it they are always getting different results. Hang in there!

I See no medicare expantion in your state is a let down for you I'm sure but glad you have other help available. In my town they are closing down the dentist offfice that is a low inclome clinic so I don't know where to go now. Probably no where. my teeth will just fall out.

Doing good today just a little stomach ache nothing unsual. Have to go sit staring today at 3:00pm. Going to be a battle with everything been over at her Dad's for the week-end. they do have a stocked pantry and frieg of food now so now wondering what to have for the kids. take care and have a good day.

Congrats, Kim! That's awesome! Have fun!

Lucinda, sounds like you have a lot going on. My state (NC) decided not to expand medicaid, which really stinks for me. I don't make enough to pay for insurance, and make too much for medicaid as it stands now. The expansion would have allowed me to have some sort of health insurance. I'm seriously considering writing our new governor regarding his decision. Thank goodness for Patient Assistance Programs, $4 generics, and doctor's offices for low income. I still have to save to go, but the amount I have to save isn't as high.

I hope most of everyone has some sunshine. Sun is shining here with highs in the upper 50s...

Kim- Congrats on your Green Day adventure!! I know that you'll have a great time!

Lucinda- I just don't even know what to say other than you are in my prayers!

Today has been a pretty good day. I am rather depressed: hygeine has been really bad for going on 3 weeks now..tried calling NeuroPsych, but they are closed today, so now I will need to wait and see her Thursday as scheduled. I did buy some new shampoo and conditioner yesterday so I did, at least, wash my hair twice today. That felt really good! I am in good spirits, just don't particularly care about anything. I have music to learn before Sunday..oops! I am having a scrapbooking session with a really good friend tomorrow..yipee.
I just want these rediculous med changes to be over! Napping 2-3 hours everyday on top of this! I get up, eat, sit to talk with mom, fall asleep and then the day goes from there.

Kim congrats on winning the Green Day prize what a treat!

Hello everyone hope you are all fine. I go see my PDr. on Monday and hopefully get more samples of Latuda. Some how I didn't budget right for the month and ran out of money after the 2nd mth! I still have to get around $25.00 worth of meds but have to find the money. The same goes for my food stamps I ran out of money on it at the same time. I'm doing alot of praying for a wind fall but that's not realistic. Went to my Medicare Wellness Physical yesterday and she ordered a Mamogram and a bone desity test for later this mth. At least they will be covered by medicare every 2 years. Monday or Tuesday I find out if I have my gall bladder out and plan for it. I feel a little over whelmed because it will be a struggle to come up with the money to pay my part hopefully the hospital finacial aid will be able to help. Is their a dollar limit to when they stop helping you? I'd like to get everything done before all the country that can't a ford insurance goes on Medicare and money is spares. I have to go see my Neurologist surgeon to take my calcium bone tumer on the side of my head because it is growing and might be pressing on my left eye nerves. Could be why my left eye is worse than my right. That surgery will be at a different hospital and I will have to apply for finacial aid but the Doctor's bill I will have to pay. Then I will be done with everything unless my appendex goes bad. May be if I get everything fixed I will have more energy and be able to function better. Those are my plans any, we will see if it all gets done. Have a good day and take care. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Carol-Ann,

I can understand a misdiagnosis, but since I was 16 it was bipolar and those mood swings in my teens to almost mid-20s were no joke. Granted the hypo-side doesn't really rear it's ugly head anymore, but couldn't that be because the Trileptal (mood stabilizer no matter what they say) that I take is just doing its job? I'm just very skeptical at this point.

Happy to hear the blurred and double vision is almost gone! Can't imagine having that - I'm sure you probably couldn't do a lot of things you normally would.

Monday I had one of my crying 'habits' - I believe it was from stress though (snowball effect). Yesterday was ok, but today I feel in a ...sensitive mood. Glad I won't be driving to do errands today unlike Monday (mom will be driving)...

Wonder what's up with the rash of Dr's un-diagnosing us? I went to the Mental Health Center for the initial 3 hour question/answer evaluation (which only lasted 2 hours). And after 2 whole hours, the Dr who interviewed me in the end said "I really don't think you have Biploar-2".
Are you telling me that after working with the same doctor for TWO years, the same PA for THREE years who frequently conferred with my psychologist of FOUR years, all of who agree on BP2 as a diagnosis (even Nurse Loopy agreed).....after a two hour Q&A with someone he's never met before this guy can properly diagnose me? UGH! This is why I don't like this changing doctor stuff...as if Nurse Loopy wasn't bad enough!

At least the blurred & double vision is almost gone! Reduced the Lamictal down from 250mg to 200mg seven days ago and it seems to be clearing my system. Which now presents the question....if I'm not at therapeutic level at 200mg and anything higher is not tolerated, what's next? Is there an add-on (like with anti-depressants) that we can turn to? Because I can tell ya right now - this BP2 girl is not mood stable.

Gotta go rest my eyes. Take care everyone!

Uuuuuuuuuuugh. Bad day for me again. At least I worked out. I've been taking only 300mg of lithium for about 2 weeks now and I don't notice any difference with my energy level or anything. Hoping to get more energy eventually. I'm starting to think feeling exhausted all the time might just be normal 21st century living.

This month hasn't really started off well,my Mom scared me last wk when she was driving hm from a visit at my house. She said to just stay on the line and talk to her because she wasn't feeling well. She went off her BP meds for like 8 mos and was having an episode. I thought I was going to end up calling 911 to go find her! But she ended up meeting her friend who drove her to the hospital. I asked her why she stopped taking her med. she said that she didn't want to have to tell people that she was on medication, she's crazy.
I am scared about going on Prozac for 2 wks before I get my period. Then the day it comes stop taking it. I've taken Zoloft before though...I hope that I don't get hypo manic. It will b the lowest dose though.

lucinda... maybe check with your pharmacy and/or docs and/or insurance to see if there's discounts and programs to help with meds cost. i know for awhile i filled out some paperwork for the drug company itself and they gave me a few months free. and if a drug isn't something you'll take all the time don't be shy to ask for samples. lots of docs have closets full of samples. ... and check with docs and insurance to see if there's a gas voucher program or anything. some stuff you might have to go through equivalent of job and family services (welfare) for .. never know what you may qualify for already ... all kinds of stuff out there available.

peachy: good job on the workout .. it was national nap day! but yea i see that tip on here a lot about sleep in workout clothes and it's fewer excuses available to prevent working out.

isee: dx are tricky things but yes get clarification. i've been bipolar I forever .. had it indepenedtly verified a couple of times by different docs .. but yet the bozo at trico only lists me as depression.

courtney used to do the goodies .. i guess that falls to me now... and apparently the team gets max 1000 to use each month or something based on how well we meet our goals .. so join team goals :-) and i will gladly put in the effort to painstakingly enter each persons name and pick a goodie and i'll work on personalizing messages :-)

Sorry I haven't been on lately. Just busy and stressed (my parents' issues and some other issues are really wearing on me).

Today went to p-doc at mental health - everything is computerized now! Anyway, I was looking on the back of my check-out sheet - the doctor puts the patient's diagnosis on the back - and she put my diagnosis and moderate depressive disorder - recurrent. Of course I wondered about that because the diagnosis has always been bipolar II. I was already at the desk when I saw it, so I asked to talk to my case worker. She pretty much was going along with what p-doc put down, and she said that I wasn't on any mood stabilizers (I take Trileptal, which IS a mood stabilizer, so I don't know what she is talking about. I told her that I was told all this time that Trileptal was a mood stabilizer (even the Neurotin I was on before that). She said it would be best to talk to pdoc about it next time so she can explain her diagnosis. So I wonder when Ms. P-doc was going to tell ME that she changed the diagnosis. I don't know what to think at this point.

Today was better. I was a bit tired but immediately in the morning before dropping my DD off at her bus stop I dressed in my workout gear. Came back and took my usual nap but then upon waking immediately felt in the mode to workout since I already had the gear on. So, so far the week is starting out good. I hope everyone else's is as well.

Hi everybody and hank you for your replys! The reson I have to wait to get the results is my surgeon went on vacation right after the surgery. I know it isn't my stomach so next is my gall bladder. It's so nice to see you all posting it makes it more fun to have more people post. I wish you all well those taht arn't feeling good and a fast recovery. I can relate to the not wanting to get started on something that needs to be done. You are right it doesn't take long to do but getting started is hard. I have this week off of sitting since it is spring break but Sat. thru Tues. I have to go let their dog out to the bathroom and feed her because they are gone visiting. This is the last week for my group and I will miss it. Lots of good information and helpful to identify olts of behavoir before it starts and how to handle it if it happens. I have a Medicare wellness physical on thursday so it will be the first one I've had in years. Already had the blood test so just the quick exam. I didn't budget very well this month and seem to have run through all my money already. The last half of the month will be slim pickens! Kind of manic because I have been on a spending spree other wise I would have money for at least another week and a half. Used all my food stamp money too so I am in big trouble. :Have just enough money to pay my last bill and the money my Daughter gives me for gas each week will cover that. My meds have been more than I had budgeted so that was one reason to deplete the funds. Oh well life goes on and if it wasn't this problem it would be another. Everyone take care and have a nice day!

Today was AWFUL. Donuts and pizza and spaghetti and cake all in one day...logged it at least. Didn't walk (surprise), but I am feeling a LOT better and have hopes that I'll be better by Tuesday so I can finally see my new nephew!

Becci - You deserve to take it easy! Sit back and relax. Recuperate!

hiya all. it's sunny and warm(ish) here .. i love it!! i opened the windows!

RDGISME (becci) i bet that square dancing was fun! it all seems hokey but as soon as everyone relaxes and gets into it burn up a TON of calories and have super fun.

even tho i walked yesterday i ended up eating a ton of crap over time. i just couldn't figure out what i wanted and ate little bad things here and there. basically wasted calories b/c they weren't satisfying.

yea the time change is a weird thing .. i always thought it was for farmers or whatever but i looked on wikipedia last night and it isn't at all! it was more about golfing (for one guy) and using fewer incandescent bulbs to save lighting energy .. by having ppl awake during daylight hours.

lucinda - usually if someone was bad in a test they'd call you .. you wouldn't wait 2 weeks for results at a regular visit.. one of those no news is good news .. or so they say. personally i've gotten so many well the tests are clear/good/OK we don't know why you're uncomfortable and sorry bout that but carry on. it's sooo frustrating.

Another HUGE binge day - didn't bother logging anything so no idea how much damage I did. Tomorrow is weigh-in and I'm sure the scale will be reading higher. Today was such a beautiful day but I stayed in, mostly. Still feeling sick, but I think a wee bit better. I plan on getting up a little early to walk 2-3 miles, but we set the clocks forward tonight, so we'll see how motivated I feel in the bright and early AM. I'm at least feeling accomplished right now because I just cleaned my living room, vacuumed the upstairs hallway and did the dishes.

Becci - Scrapbooking sounds like a nice trip down memory lane. Jalapeno cornbread sounds awesome! And glad it sounds like you had a blast at the squaredanceing potluck!

Kim - I was confused and thought springing the clocks forward would make it dark earlier, but you're right! Now I'm looking forward to it!

Lucinda - 2 weeks is a long time to wait for results for anything. Hope you can keep your mind on other things, and hope you feel well.

JustPeachy - I hate feeling unmotivated and tired. It is VERY hard for me to get going when I feel that way, but the only way for me to get out of that slump is to force myself to do something, usually by convincing myself it's a necessity that can't wait (cleaning something, running an errnd, etc.). Usually once I get going the momentum begins to build pretty quickly, but starting is hard. Wish I had good advice, but that's all I can say.

Peachy-I am feeling rather 'off' this month, too. Just not motivated, a bit sluggish and tired in a different way. I have found it helpful, when I go to bed, to face my alarm clock away from me. The blue light numbers are now facing my wall and not lighting up in front of my face. Kim is absolutely right: work on changing up your sleep hygiene!

Lucinda-I am glad that your endoscopy went okay and am sorry that you need to wait so long for your results!! I will keep you in prayer for sanity while you wait, for the Dr's response to your results to be quick and for your health to be renewed and pain to be removed from you.

This morning I woke fairly easy..up at 6:00, walked Teddie and got ready for my day. This morning was the women's breakfast at church which isn't always low cal and healthy. Today we had iced muffins, cantaloupe and keesh..darned keesh has tons of cals! Tonight I am going, because a friend made me promise, to a pot luck supper at church. 2 meals of questionable nutrition...oh man! The theme tonight is western foods because we will be square dancing after. Most everyone is preparing a franks and beans style food..I have jalapeņo corn bread in the oven. I hope that enough people like it that I don't need to bring it home! Looking forward to some exercise that I have never done..don't have a clue as to what I am in for!! Well...going to get Teddie out for a walk now...that's exercise that I know how to get!

do what you can each day ... if you're tired you probably aren't sleeping well .. so makeover your routine and practice better sleep hygiene

* pick a time to start night time routine - stick to it
* take meds with some water
* turn off electronics (so no lights glowing and no noises .. silent mode on phone if you need the alarm or something)
* keep bedroom cool (turn on a fan if necessary)
* shower, brush teeth, whatever
* breathing exercises can help .. even a slow in the nose out the mouth count 1-10 and 10-1 is super helpful

add things as necessary ... the point is to wind down on purpose and to relax and actually attempt sleep when you're in your bedroom and in bed... not fiddling on computer or phone or TV or pets or whatever

start backing off caffeine during the day .. not all at once .. but have one less for a few days and eventually to nothing

get more sunshine during the day whenever possible

-- as with a lot of things it isn't about getting everything all right all the time .. it's about what you can add now or change now or get rid of now that will build to a bigger goal in the future

March has been hard for me so far. I keep not feeling motivated and tired. I went for a walk today with my dog and hope to go tomorrow as well. Then on Monday, I hope to get back on track on the exercise routine. What do you do when you are unmotivated and tired? emoticon

Hi all I'm able to get on the internet today no problems! Had my endoscopy and have to wait for 2 wks for the results. It went fast I was in and out in 1 hr going home. Went home and had to walk my toruk alittle unsteady on my feet but accomplished it ok. Still have stomach aches not quite as bad but still there. May be he will take my gall bladder next. Sorry to hear that some of you aren't feeling very well and hope you get better soon. Larissa my life isn't much better I get up have a few hrs for myself and have to take care of Toruk then go sit with the Grandkids and back home to relax a few hrs then to bed only to do it all over again the next day. It can be nerve racking sometimes going to sit but still love the kids. Kim glad you are finding new therapist and PDr. that will work with you good luck! Running late got to go take care and have a good day. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

am fixing a lean pocket then i'm going outside to walk and enjoy the sunshine!

i don't know why everyone complains about this time change .. i love this one. to me it isn't about losing an hour .. it's about gaining sunshine during regular awake hours. ... i hate the one in fall where suddenly it is dark at 5p and lasts until 8a. .. if we all still operated on up with the sun and to bed with the moon .. then it'd be different but we don't.. we operate by a clock in the modern world.

Well..today has been busy: I have been pulling out old pics to do some scrapbook pages and it has brought up some interesting feelings...My son who was adopted out from birth..my wedding pics(nothing great-a J.P married us) and we divorced...my graduation from high School..my last Choir/jazz band concert from Junior year of H.S. The sense of calm that has fallen over me is wonderful! I was worried that I would be a mess.

Mollo-I hope you are at least a little better? I can't imagine being that sick without nap time fitting in..I will pray for your return to health.

Kim-I am so glad that your appt. went so well. You deserve providers who will work with you and not against!

Larissa? Don't worry about curling up and getting comfy...far too many people would just die for those minutes! Just don't let those times get ahead of you..Life is what it is and no more. Don't credit it as nothing....as long as you breathe every day, can make decisions for yourself and can communicate, you are living a good life!

Hey all. I am still sick, and worse even. Now I feel like I'm breathing through a straw. Last night I did one of my the Firm DVDs instead of Insanity because I felt like I ought to try doing SOMETHING but today I am coughing so much stuff up and my chest hurts so much I don't think I can manage even that, and it's pretty low intensity. I am going to take my mucinex and just curl up in bed. At least I'm staying within my calorie range if I can't work out.

Kim - SORRY to hear how modern medicine is failing you. I hope you get some kind of answers. Maybe modern medicine isn't the way to go. Have you ever thought of accupuncture? I have heard tales of it working wonders for at least a couple of women.

Becci - Glad the humidifier is helping. Nap if you need it. Lord knows I'd do it if I had the time. In fact I managed a half hour wink yesterday while my little one was napping.

Larissa - Are you depressed or do you just like to keep it low-key? No one every said you need to run yourself ragged! Don't say it's not much of a life! Wrapping up in a snuggly bathrobe and talking on the phone with friends or family sounds like a perfectly fine evening to me.

I'm here for now... I know Courtney is taking a leave of absence, and Carol Ann isn't feeling well either. I'm waiting until it's a decent time to call her so I don't wake her. She's 5 hours behind, so around 4 I'm going to call her.

I've been going through a rough patch right now... I don't feel like going to volunteer, but I don't want to stay home either. I need to find something that's not stressful that I can keep up with. I'm in the middle of reading 4 books because I start reading one, get bored and move on to the next one. I know how to crochet, but I have to be in the mood for it. All I do is sleep, take my walk and cook dinner. I take a shower, wrap myself in my snuggly bathrobe, lie down and talk on the phone until I can sleep. Not much of a life.

Today I slept in a little, walked Teddie and took a 2 hour nap...feeling better but still napping..maybe my body just needs rest..used my cool air humidifier last night and slept better than I have in a long time! Maybe that is what brought the late rising...

After waking this morning sicker than sick, I went out with mom to Pittsfield, shopping. Yup! For yarn....the longer we were out, the better I ended up feeling! I think that the dry air heat we have is drying me out! I set up my cold air humidifier an hour or so ago, closed the door and set it on...hope so much that tomorrow I am not 'sick' in the morning!! On top of the cold like symptoms this morning, was a migraine! Mom walked Teddie so that I could go back to bed after taking my medication, until it worked..I did walk him at 4:30 and 8:30, and will be ready at 6am.....I don't mind walking him,, and I know that Linda would do the same if I were her, but 6am? It is just far too cold!

Kimberly- new Capri's in a smaller size sound AWESOME!! Congrats girl!! Sounds like Modern Medicine has, indeed, given up on you: you are a fairly healthy woman who MUST need the attention....who just needs something to complain about, right? (All said sarcastically!!) Why is it that we can't have anything wrong unless we are suffering the worst ways possible?! Because you can rotate your legs does not mean that you are not feeling limitations! I'm not sure what my attitude would be like if I had suffered the horrible bed side manner of your dr's...

Mollo-Hope you feel great real soon!!

so once again a doc tells me the tests showed nothing wrong and i'm fine. let's recap .. so apparently my tooth doesn't really hurt when i bite down bc there's no infection... my stomach is fine bc there's no blockage or stones anywhere but yet i still bleed... my bipolar is fine b/c i don't take meds or don't respond well to meds... my knees are a-ok b/c i can bend and rotate them .. my toes are good despite having the nails ripped off ...my head is ok b/c the tests showed nothing about migraines or epilepsy or whatever ... lungs are ok b/c i can breathe into a machine .. no ear fluid to speak of and hearing test was ok so no reason for the popping and pain and hearing loss and ringing .. and now .. oh i slept just fine despite being freaking exhausted from dreaming so much.

i'm about ready to give up on modern medicine

Haven't taken the time to stop by because I've been busy and sick. Over on calories yesterday and today, but when I get sick I get bingey...need the comfort of comfort food. Also skipped my workout tonight because I feel so crummy. Here's to hoping tomorrow brings me better health.

you all are impressive with walks in the below freezing weather. applause for sure!!

i didn't sleep well and didn't really wake up either. downed a Sunkist for the caffeine with my bowl of cheerios. then woke up somewhere in the middle of DBT. on the way i was once again behind someone doing 10mph BELOW the speed limit in all 3 towns between home and destination. but i turned it into a positive. i was still in the car long enough to hear Weird Al "Fat" song on the radio. I was laughing sooo hard!

anyways had a great DBT and then grocery shopped for almost 2 hours i guess it was. i still will never understand how baggers think soup cans and a yogurt cup go on top of tomatos. like uh what? why not cold with cold and cans with cans and boxes with boxes like I had everything ALREADY arranged on the conveyor! you'd think i was asking for brain surgery or something. i might have to become one of "those" ppl who refuse the bagging help and do it myself.

came home and walked while the sun was still out. i think it might be time for size L tech capri pants b/c the XL ones i got a month or so ago keep sliding down and it's annoying to have to keep pulling them up at the waist.

Well guys-I think that I am officially better!! Taken several walks today, was in my DBT class for an hour and am not exhausted, feeling crappy or any of it! It is about 29* here and I do hate the cold~ but not enough to keep me from walking Teddie, walking to my class or keep me inside. Feeling quite stable today which is very nice, eh? Oh!! I just spoke with my manager at Michael's-we scheduled my first 4 classes today! I will do orientation next week-my first 2 classes are on the 29th and 30th of March!! So excited!! Can you even believe it? For whatever reason, I am leaps ahead of my fellow teacher and other new hiree..I get first dibs!
Well, I have to take some Spark time and get off to preparing dinner-I'm off! Hope everyone has had a good day!

Another nice day but 20*! Will get my walks in regardless then off to sitting with the Grandkids. Backto the old grind and some of the new people on my floor are very loud and yell for now reason so very disturbing. Hope all of you are ok and hope to hear from you later today. Take care and have a great day. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Hi everyone! the sun is shinning here but only 24* so I think warm thoughts! Have the day off will be able to get at least 3 walks inand the snow is melting off the sidewalks so we have more places to walk again. I have to start laundry runing out of toweels and sheet sets. Then there is my regular laundry to do. I shouldn't have to go to the store till next week happy about that. My stomach is getting better at times so don't know what the endysocpy will show on Wed. If nothing then maybe they will take out my gall bladder. I don't want to go through the attacks any more. woke up to early still need some more sleep so time for a nap before I start the day. take care and have a great day! Lucinda

Kimberly-I can't wait to join the new and revamped team goals!! I am so there!!

Today I woke feeling much better! That lasted about 3 hours-walked Teddie twice, for about 10 minutes each, walked 6 minutes to my Therapy appt. and crashed!! I napped about 2hrs before we headed to North Hampton shopping...for what? YARN!! Yes- mom is, yet again, shopping for the perfect yarn. This time? Queensland, which we found in a few different colors.

That is all well and good....now I am so ready to sleep! Talked about my visit at my brothers with my Therapist today. An actually enjoyable conversation-how far have I come!!? This was really big-normally I can't speak too long about a visit to James' without getting really defensive, disgusted and judgemental. So against DBT: "don't judge. If you do, don't judge the judging." I am so proud to be finally practicing DBT even without knowing it!

So now I am heading off my day and preparing for sleep. Tomorrow? Teddie is with Linda's daughter overnight, so no 6am walk or even 8:00, I am guessing. At Michael's Craft, my future and new employer, there is a big sale day along with the different teachers setting examples of what is being taught..I am def. checking that out!

Good night gang! Sleep well!

I thought I'd mix up one of the Team Goals and make it easier for more members to join and SUCCEED!!

Now, instead of walking a mile or more every day ...JOIN the modified goal of 3 miles per week. This means you can walk any amount you wish and when you track it in the SparkPeople Fitness Tracker it'll count to the team!

Yay March! This is how I know the winter is ending for sure. My birthday is in 2 days, our store (it sells lumber) increases its hours which means more monies for us, so it's all pretty good. Even our cats are glad that the ice and snow are melting and soon they can head on outside and just prowl the yard.
And while there's not Irish in either me or my husband, we like to celebrate St. Patty's Day and see some friends anyway. Yay March!
