So glad you're feeling better today, Jeanne. You are certainly welcome. And I'm glad you have defeated the closet! Still shaking my head about the neighbors lol! emoticon

Mood is up today! Knew I could make it through if I just thought positively enough! Thanks SMILLER for your support through yesterday! I have almost finished cleaning that dratted closet out! 4 days worth of working on it as I can and it's still laughing at me a bit! emoticon

Yeah the neighbors burn the cords and it puts toxic chemicals in the air - and in my lungs so I call and the fire marshal comes out and the next time they get a big fine! I can't handle that crap in my lungs as I have episodic asthma and that brings on an attack quick-fast! Plus the fire marshal said that that stuff is SO bad for anyone to breathe and also bad for the environment! They have not done it since the marshal told them a fine was what they get next time. They know it was me that called though because the fire marshal came over to talk to me and tell me to be sure to call next time so they could put a stop to it again! I don't mind that they know - somebody has to do something or nothing gets done!

Burning cords to get the copper???? That's a new one on me. Yeah, I would wait to get the help too, Jeanne. Hugs to you and to you, Larissa. It always seems like when it rains it really does pour, but you'll both get through it.

I'm on the opposite end right now, a bit hypo-manic. I'm working really hard to curb the impulse buying. I may not have a car at the moment, but sometimes being online is even worse. So many temptations. On the other hand, I've been doing lots of yard work and house work. I have a love-hate relationship with my hypo-mania. It's good for some things, not so good for others

*hugs Jeanne* Things will get better... you have to have the bad days so you know how wonderful the good days are. I'm going to try and re-apply for my loan forgiveness... It's a dark time for me now, but I do have spots where things are good.

SMILLER - No my neighbors on one side are umm how to put this nicely.. not the most energetic of people and I've had to call the fire department on them twice for burning cords in their wood burning stove. They do it to get to the copper. Needless to say they are not real happy with me. The other neighbors I know are all busy working as hard as hubby. It will be okay I know it will. Just sometimes it all comes crashing down on me ya know? My son in law can come do the cayenne tomorrow I guess if we get some picked up. I will ask DH for instructions on exactly how to do it tonight and then see if son in law can come by tomorrow and take care of it. Thanks for the suggestion!

Lottie: I swear sometimes GPs know more than the specialists. I hope you get in soon and can find relief.

Jeanne: You are going through quite a spell right now. And a woodpecker of all things! Do you have a neighbor who can help with the cayenne?

One more thing added to my stress and I am gonna scream! This is all that is going on: Hubby has surgery scheduled for Monday. DD is having her baby 2 weeks later. I am battling my pain. And now we have a woodpecker pecking our house! I can't get up there to put cayenne pepper where he's pecking and DH never gets home when it's light out! Grrrrr!

I am trying real hard to just go with the flow but sometimes the bipolar and anxiety disorder make that impossible!!

Went to my GP this afternoon and she is sending me to a rheumatologist. She is a pretty good doc so I feel that I can trust her to do what's best.

Woke up in pain this morning. Called my kidney doctor and he won't be back in until October 20. They told me to make an appointment with my GP so I see her this afternoon at 2:00. I have a lot that needs to be done but it hurts to do anything. Will get it done somehow.

Sounds good Lottie! Yesterday I made bbq pulled pork in my crock pot and it came out so tender that I barely had to shred it! Just took a fork and kind of gently ran it through the roast and it fell apart!

Fixed Lemon-herb Roasted Chicken tonight for supper. It was really good. It was the juiciest bird I have ever seen (fall of the bone good). I think I have 2 recipes that I need to put on this site. This recipe had no added salt so I didn't know how hubby was going to like it. Well, he loved it and said he wouldn't change a thing.

I'm sorry that both of you are in pain... I'm doing okay today. I had to take some ibuprofen last night for a headache, but that seemed to work well. I slept late but I feel good. Nothing like a hot cup of coffee after a long sleep.

Glad to hear you are doing better Larissa!

Sounds like you got a lot from your class Lottie!

I'm in some pain today. I cleaned like crazy on Thursday and did a lot of bending and my back is paying the price for it! I am trying to not let if affect my mood!

I'm doing better today. My mood is up and my pain is less. I thought I was going to have a big problem falling asleep, but I fell asleep around my normal time and only woke up a couple times.

Lottie- good luck with the trees! When I was a kid my dad and brothers planted a peach tree, an avocado tree and 2 orange trees. The soil was not good, but they grew anyway. I love having trees in a garden... I can't wait until I can have an actual garden when we get out of the city.

Hi all! Sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately.. I've been going through a rough time with Geo and then also doctors appointments, the maintenance people coming by... I've just used all the excuses to not post. I haven't even been doing my walking. I went up to 218 pounds again, but I'm starting out again on the right track and I'm now 215.8 pounds. I'm happy about that, and I'm going to go for my walk when I'm done posting this. I live in a safe enough place to where I can walk at night. Well, no more lollygagging, time to walk!

Went to a workshop on trees (planting and problems) today. It only lasted 5 hours but I learned a lot of new information and techniques that I hadn't heard of before. I enjoy going to things like this. I don't feel like I am wasting my time or my money (this one was not free).

I'm doing much better today. I'm sore, but I made myself walk so I could finally get some exercise. I've been gaining weight like crazy because I haven't been exercising. I woke up in time to go to my aerobics class but I was so sore I couldn't go.

Larissa, Hope you are feeling better today.

Went to the dietitian this morning. Turns out I was doing the right things, I just needed a few pointers. I am in pain today due to arthritis acting up. Other than that I am doing okay.

Jeanne and Larissa, I'm glad you're feeling better. Lottie, hope you feel better. I'm doing better today. Not sure why, but I'll take it. Getting out Saturday helped, even if it was just going to Walmart. There weren't many people, so no panic attacks. My daughter lost her car to a flash flood in July and she's been using mine since. My husband travels a lot, so I've been without a car unless I make plans that rival D-day with my in-laws to use their car.

Doing ok here but yes we have snow during the winter - Colorado you know?! I was down with a 72 hour bug but am feeling so much better!

Lottie - hope you get to feeling UP after a bit!

Larissa - glad you are feeling better after your sleep!

Haven't got much done this weekend. Am so tired all of the time and have very little energy. That is not like me. Go to see the dietitian on Wednesday morning. Maybe they can give me some pointers.

*hugs to all*

I'm actually feeling better. I think I just needed a ton of sleep to get there. But tomorrow I want to go out for coffee with my friend Lisa and then come home for the wrestling Pay Per View (we get it for free). The seasons here are similar... just winter it gets down to the 60's instead of the 70's. I know.. I live in paradise. When it gets down to that one or two days when it's cold (60 degrees in the day) then you see everyone with hugs jackets and stuff. I've never lived in a place that was snowy.

Lottie, I'm glad you're having a good day. You deserve it. Reading other ideas about the change in seasons, something struck me: the days are markedly shorter here, and I have SAD on top of everything else. I love early to mid fall when the temperature gets cooler and the leaves turn color, but it also means winter will be here soon. Last winter was very long and hard here, and since I hate to drive in the snow, I didn't get out hardly at all. That's when I packed on an additional 20 pounds I didn't need. Driving is a moot point anyway, since my daughter has had my car since July after hers was in a flash flood, and hubby uses his all the time. Ok-hypomanic day. I'm rambling and I'm pissy. Sorry...

Am having a good day so far. We cleaned out our entertainment system yesterday and giving everything except the dvd player and the satellite box to Daddy's helper. He is coming to get it after he helps my brother make feed for the hogs. Daddy told the man that is going to be doing the remodeling of our living room that he could start in 2 weeks (after he gets finished with the job he is working on at the present). I am going to pack up the collectibles this afternoon. It is going to be a busy time around here.

I wonder if it's the season changing that is giving us all fits?? I have noticed that that affects me in previous years.....

*hugs* It seems that a lot of us are having a hard time. it could be because of the change in seasons, but I'm not sure. I'm feeling more stable today, just in a lot of pain. I have a friend who is insisting that it's my meds, but I would rather have a low grade headache and be stable than have to start medication roulette again.

SGASPERSON - I am so sorry to hear about your trouble. I know what you mean about doing okay until some kind of a monkey wrench is thrown in the mix! I too have the anxiety in addition to the bipolar and a couple other things and it's a real hurdle in life!

I had a bad day yesterday. I have been getting additional money to help me live in a retirement village and I found out yesterday that it will be stopped. I don't want to move. Mayb things will work out. It has blown my bipolar out of whack. I have anxiety too and it sure has not helped that either. Sure wish there was some simple solution to dealing with bipolar but there is not. Meds cover a lot of mine but when something happens it seems to cause problems. Feel some better today.

Put your heart into anything you do.

Lottie - I am so happy that you are doing better!

Larissa - You go girl!

SMiller - I'm sorry you have to deal with that temptation it's got to be so hard! My DH is on board and even gave up his ice cream so I didn't have to deal with it being around! I am so blessed!

I'm proud of myself. i got up early in the morning (for me) and went to the gym for the aerobics class, then changed and went to volunteer for a couple hours. I came home, took a nap, made dinner and now I'm Sparking away!
