I used to have nightmares sometimes when I was working, especially in a job that you don't even want to go to anymore. Now I have nightmares if I watch anything like a scary movie or something with snakes in it. Now I am trying to get my CNA I license back so I can be on the sitter list at the hospital. That way, I don't have to do full time work but get a little extra money so that I can do the things I want to do but don't feel guilty about doing them.

*hugs Ezz* Things will be okay. Don't stress too much. It does suck that they are leaving you hanging. I will be keeping you in my thoughts!

I have very bad nightmares about work. Never had them when I worked...now they think it's a form of PTSD...I loved nursing, but when you you are short of staff and have to make priorities you shouldn't have to it gets to you....sooner or later....

I had my stress test...have to go back tomorrow to talk with the doctor...it was abnormal...my DH wasn't thrilled that they leave you hanging, but I kind of know what it means...he did say no strenuous activity...so I know there is blockage....now we will find out where....stay tuned..

I slept in until noon and then went to the doctor with Geo. He's finally under 500 pounds (he has lost 90 pounds since he started the process of getting the gastric sleeve) He is supposed to see the doctor in 2 months and hopefully be in the low 400's by then.

As for me, I haven't slept well and keep on having nightmares. I tortures myself today... I watched some scary videos and have plenty of nightmare fodder. Then I went to KFC and got some greasy chicken. I keep sabotaging myself and gaining weight. I think I'm an addict and I need to quit or hit rock bottom. I can't believe that I've been steadily gaining for the past year. I need to turn around and start being serious about my weight.

I tried taking it at 8:30 pm instead of my normal 10:30. It seems to have worked... it took me a bit to get to sleep but at least I didn't stay awake until midnight. I felt good waking up. I'm not tired when I normally would be. *hugs*

Lottie- tell your mom some random chick from the internet wishes her a happy birthday. Or you could just say Diane. *hugs*

I saw my therapist today... we are changing the time that I take my Seroquel so hopefully I can sleep better. I've been having trouble falling asleep and having nightmares.

Today is Momma's birthday. She is 71 and on some days she has more energy than I have at 47.

*hugs Ezz* we are here for you... just post and we can help you! That or send me a Spark Mail and I will respond.

Sorry about how slow the board has been lately... I was going through a lot for Geo's surgery (was March 31) and after I went to my mom's for a while. I'm going to try and get more people posting... I have no idea what happened to Carol Ann, the other mod. I don't know when or if she is coming back. If you have any problems, just send me a message and I will work with you on it.

Just learned that one of my friends had a heart attack and is going to have to have heart by-pass surgery. He is my age and we are not even 50 yet. Hope everything goes okay with him. Have been busy at my aunt's house cutting back her shrubbery. It hasn't been cut back in quite a few years. Will finish up tomorrow. Have to help Momma get Dixie (her dog) to the vet for a hair cut. I think she will feel better after that. It is looking really good down there.
