Hey All!

I've been running around (some literal running) like a chicken with my head cut off. I did a 5k this morning, and then I did 6 miles on Friday training for my half marathon. I'm doing a quick stop in before I check in with my Cloverleafs (5% Challenge).

Deb, I'm so sorry to hear about Micah! Prayers for healing! ((hugs))

Kelli, I'll reply to your Spark Mail as soon as I get a chance! I have it in my inbox, I just need to breathe for a second!

UNIQ, welcome! I do keto as well, and I found it helps a lot with the depression. It makes me manic when I take it with antidepressants, so I had to watch out with that. I didn't get a chance to read your intro yet (like I said, I've been running around), but I will and will respond more in the October Chat!

Okay! I'm doing okay... Just trying to get myself back into focus. Today is Richard (my stepdad)'s birthday, so I had my 5k, then I came home, spent some time with him, went off to my CoDA meeting, deep cleaned my room, spent some more time with him, cooked him dinner, cleaned my room some more, and I just got on my computer to find out that the Rosters for the 5% Challenge have been sent out, so I've got to get to my team and see what's going on!

Hi UNIQDRGFLY,

Welcome to the group and to our Chat thread !! I am Bipolar 1, 66 and well medicated now, after 20 years of trying to find solutions and a cocktail that works. I am more manic than I am depressive, but I suffer from SAD and anxiety, as well. I still see my therapist every two weeks. I have some CBT training, but not enough at the present time. I want to explore the discipline more thoroughly, with another therapist, but they have changed my therapist to a new one who doesn't know much about CBT. That's okay, I will find someone who can help. I have boundary issues and need a different mindset to help me cope. Other than that I am in good shape. I am lucky, I do not have many physical problems. I suffer from migraines, but I don't have any physical limitations.

We are here for you. This is a great place to come and talk about your day or anything which might be bothering you. We celebrate successes here too. We don't just focus on the negative. KUDOS for being proactive about your disorder and starting a group to help you learn more about it !! I'm sure that it is a great source of information and sharing.

I tried to go to your Sparkpage to leave you a note and a welcoming goodie, but your page is set to private. If you are looking for friends, please include me among them and feel free to add me as a friend. I am always looking for more friends and I would be honored to become one of yours.

Thank you for reaching out and introducing yourself to us. We are happy to welcome you and have you join the Team. We are excited to get to know you. I hope to see you in the forums and on the threads often, so that we can encourage you along the way. emoticon again. emoticon Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

I am new to this group, joined another one but it was dead.

I ain't skinny, but i do follow the keto woe to lose the extra 35 lbs meds put on me since i was dx a few years ago.

I wish to make friends, give and take support. Probably like many of you i am an empath. As part of my own therapy, i only see my pdoc every 6 mos now, been a long road on this journey, so i created a bipolar support group on Facebook. It really helps doing research for the few members i have at the moment and myself, always learning. Lol.

Anyway, glad to be here and reach out to me if you need a shoulder. I pretty much told the readers digest version of me in the intro section. emoticon

Hi Kelli,

emoticon to the thread !! Thank you for the best wishes for Micah. He is young and resilient. I am sure that now the hard part is over, he will recuperate quickly. He is my angel and my best friend. I live with and care for him, while my daughter is at work every day. He and I are very close. I stopped by your Sparkpage and was very impressed with your determination to conquer your Fibro and with your exercise ethic. I hope that you find a medication that works better than the Lyrica for you. So many antidepressants cause weight gain. We can all relate to that. I believe that I have seen others mention Fibro here, so you are not alone. Thank you for posting and joining us in Chat !! We are so happy to have you with us on this journey !! Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Hello Deb,

I just want to say thanks for including me. This is by far the most welcoming team on sparkpeople. I am so blessed to have it. I am sorry to hear about Micah. I can't imagine what he is going through. My thoughts are with him.

Hi all,

Larissa, you are doing so well !! I am so impressed with your long term plan and volunteering with the Red Cross is such a wonderful place to start. I think that you will do really well. I was a CNA for 15 years in the Psyche Unit of a long term care facility. It was the absolute best job that I ever had. I loved my people in the Unit. I'm sure with your empathy and caring nature you are a natural for a career in health care ! Your walk and your half marathon are great ! Suicide Prevention is so important, as we all know. You are making great strides in your life. You go girl !! KUDOS !! Good luck in the challenge. You will do really well, I am sure.

Micah, 7, was in a car accident in a friend's car. It was a very bad accident and his spleen was damaged badly. They had to do emergency surgery because of the internal bleeding. He messed up some other stuff too. But, the biggy was the spleen, then while in the hospital he contracted an infection that took awhile to begin to clear up. At first they were afraid of MRSA,but it ended up being something else bad, but not as bad as MRSA. Thank goodness he is recuperating well and while still on antibiotics he is getting better every day. I am relieved. The hospital stay was complicated by his autism and his inability to understand why he couldn't just go home with his Mom. It is very hard to talk to someone who is convinced that just because he wants to, he can. It set him up for emotional distress and he was a difficult patient. Jeni stayed every day and all night with him the whole time he was there. He is very high functioning, but still immature emotionally sometimes. So, he was difficult to handle upon occassion. He's home now and we are in good shape, He will continue antibiotics for a bit yet. But, he is doing well. Thank you for asking about him. We are happy with his progress.

I will be with the Rebels again for Fall as ML/WL. We had a really great team for the Summer and I hope that we will be competitive again. I am happy placing in the top five.

Audrey, are you going to be able to participate in the Challenge too? You have so many irons in the fire at home, will you have time for it this Fall?

I am looking forward to the 6th and I am looking forward to seeing who our team members are, once they accept their invitations. This is the most exciting part for me, the invitations and that first couple of weeks, as you get to know your teammates.

I wish everyone a successful week ! Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Have a toot your own horn Tuesday !! SHINE !! Deb emoticon

Kelli, I hope your day was okay! PTSD is horrible, I have two kinds, regular and complex. It's just horrible to deal with. ((hugs)) If you need someone to talk to, just send me a Spark Mail.

Deb, what happened with the surgery? ((hugs)) to you too! I don't know what's going on with my girl... I'm super worried about her. I haven't heard from her in over a day, and that's not like her. I just hope she's okay! I am doing the Fall 5% as CL, as normal. I have my half marathon on November 11th, and my Suicide Prevention Walk on November 3rd. I need to add my donation link to my signature again.. I think I got a donation here last time!

I'm okay. My Fitbit band broke, so I don't know how I slept last night. I'm still tired, so I might take a nap. I have to be up at 6 am tomorrow, to go to my first Red Cross volunteer Blood Drive! I'm excited, but also nervous. There's just so much going on in my life right now! I'm so excited about this Red Cross thing... It's the first step on my way to my goal of being a Nurse Practitioner... First volunteer, then plebotomist, then CNA, then RN, then NP! That's what I'm thinking about doing, anyways. Working my way up, like a good hard worker. I got to get ready for the day now.. take my shower, get my pills and some tea for tomorrow at CVS, water, then get to my CoDA meeting tonight! Tuesdays are busy days for me!

Well, it sounds as if everyone is having an interesting September. I am sorry for the MIA, but I have been dealing with a family emergency involving surgery and my little 7 year old grandson. We are on the road to healing now and that is very freeing emotionally. I have been on pins and needles for three weeks. But, the worst is behind us and we can move forward again.

Wow, so much has happened to everyone , that I don't know where to start.

'Rissa, I am so happy that you are doing well with your training and that you have a new girl you are seeing now. I am so sorry for her illness. You must be very concerned. It sounds as if you have a solid routine down for your marathon plans though and that has to be great. Are you doing the 5% Challenge again or are you taking a break?

Karri, I hope that you are feeling so much better after your surgery and I am glad that it was a success. I hope that by now the pain has subsided and you are well on the way to good health again.

Audrey, Congratulations !! I am so happy for you and Xena. She must have worked very hard to compete and win !! Are you still doing the 5% Challenges too? I know that you are beyond busy with your kids and family.

Ronnie, I lived in Louisiana for 13 years and went through many hurricanes during my time there. I hated the period from May to November. My husband worked offshore and you never knew what kind of weather might develop out in the Gulf. Hurricanes were not my favorite things either

Angie, I hope that all has gone well with your med change and that your doctor's visit was productive.

Heather, how exciting to be taking so many fun trips. Your cruise was beautiful I bet. The scenery in Alaska is fabulous. You go cross bow hunting with your Dad every year don't you? I hope that your hunting trip is successful if you are able to go. So sorry that your medication is not working well, but happy for you that you are writing again.

Kelli, my daughter suffers from PTSD. It is an insidious disorder. I don't know how she copes. Sometimes her anxiety and depression are so bad, that she can't sleep or eat for days. Walking is good exercise. Walking in good weather is gold. We have had good weather here lately too. However, the monsoons will be here by this next month. Normally our kids have to trick or treat in the rain every year.

Well, I hope that all are doing well just for today. We can only get through one day at a time. It sounds as if we have all had our challenges this month. I can't believe that it is going to already be October next week. It seems as if September just barreled along. Between surgery, recuperation and an upcoming return to school, Micah is doing well now. I can return to the gym during the day and get back on decent track with my program. I have lost some weight through all the stress and anxiety of a really, sick kid. However, I will be doing the 5% Challenge again this Fall, so that will help me get back into shape. I have found out that I hate sitting in hospital rooms. Well, have a terrific and productive week. Sending positive energy and emoticon to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Had lots of flash backs because of my post traumatic stress. I woke up and was so depressed. My son and I went for a 2 mile walk. This afternoon I went on another walk. The weather here is beautiful. Tomorrow is going to be a very intense and stressful day.

Heather, I'm glad you had fun! It sucks that the Rexulti isn't helping that much. I'm sure you'll figure it out. I haven't been on a vacation since a couple of months after I moved here, so I don't know how it's going to be like to get used to being back to my normal.

I'm a bit hypomanic right now.... just waiting a bit for my 4:30 dose of Neurontin. Maybe I should take it now? I just know that my friend is going to be calling me soon and I probably need to concentrate. Ya know what? I just took it. It's only 20 minutes early, it's not going to hurt. I take my pills when I need them. I need to stop and think. I was going a bit hypomanic yesterday.. I spent way too much money at the Fair. I had a lot of fun, but I spent over $150 on my credit card, almost $50 in food stamps at the store, and then $30 in cash. That's a LOT of money! I'm glad I didn't have more money on me! I did get a lot of nice stuff, and I did have a lot of fun. But I'm going to reign in my spending for the rest of the month. I do need ketones to get my body back in shape, but no more things like candles, bras or perfume like I like to get. It's not like I've been using a lot of it. Well, I do, but not at the rate that I buy it!

Just got back from my trip to Alaska to see family and take a cruise back down to the lower 48. I had an awesome time! Granted, I was fighting a case of the irritable crazies most of the time, but overall it went well and I kept my mouth shut (and rather medicated).

Not showing much luck with the Rexulti, though I may be mistaken--life has been a little out of the ordinary as of late. I see the doc Monday to figure out what to do. Then I may be heading out for yet another trip, this time to go crossbow hunting in SD with my dad. (not sure if that is going to happen or not. Here is hoping though!)

I gained five pounds in two weeks while on vacation. I am pretty darn sure that 4 of those were all from the cruise. Back to eating like a regular human being again I guess.

The dog is rather sulky at not having constant attention anymore since I got him back from my marshmallow of a dad. Overall not much to retrain, just to reaccustom him to normal life.

Feels good to get back to writing again. I feel...rather useless without it. I am still stuck at an impasse in my plot, but I feel better about actually being able to work on it for more than a few minutes at a time.

Disjointed, Yup. That is where I stand right now. Not horrible. Not great. Still not stable enough to work, but perhaps getting there. Till then, back to typing.

I had a good time at Six Flags, but now I'm really worried about my girl. She is getting X-rays done... she got sick on one of the rides, and then couldn't go on any more. It might have been a good thing, since she might have a blood clot in her leg! I'm SUPER worried about her! I'm waiting for her to text me back, she hasn't. She said she was done with the X-rays, but that was it. She didn't tell me the results, I called her. I think she's on her way to the ER trying to get it removed. I feel really guilty, since it was my idea to take her to Six Flags in the first place. I know I didn't cause the blood clot, her RA did, but still. I feel so bad right now!!! I'll try and update y'all when I get more information.

Edited to add:

Not a blood clot! Thank you, Higher Power! It's a bad infection, but not a blood clot.

Audrey, Congrats!

Ronnie, are you in the path of this hurricane?

Angie, I hope things go well

Rissa, hope you have a great time at six flags! I can't wait till I'm skinny enough and well enough to ride the rides again, I love roller coasters when I'm not anxious!!

Surgery went well, I'm in a lot of pain, but a friend warned me that this was a painful surgery. I have a high pain tolerance, so I don't know how people with low tolerances deal with it!!

Ronnie, I remember tropical storms from my time in Miami, but no real hurricanes.

Feeling better today since the heat has broken. Friday is Six Flags! Woohoo! And it's gay day with my girl, even better :) I'm taking Richard out for a really early birthday dinner, but I'm getting paid so why not? His birthday is September 30th, it's the 10th lol. Oh well. I'm a bit hypomanic, I've determined. Or just happy. I can't tell. Probably hypomanic.

Thanks Karri! A half marathon is 13.1 miles, so I have a long way to go. If I wake up at the crack of dawn tomorrow, like I have been, I'm going to go for my 5 mile walk. I do a 10% increase of my pace jog(tempo), a long walk, and then just regular walks throughout the week. I need to start doing intervals, where I do faster and slower, but I do what I can.

My girl (not girlfriend) is sick, so I'm not going to have a date with her tonight, and we aren't going to the beach tomorrow. I just have to wait for her to get better. I'm not going to push her, since I respect her- and I don't want to get sick, either!

Rissa, congrats on the mileage!! That is awesome! How long in a half-marathon?

Having one of those mornings where my chest is tight and I'm having to constantly remind myself that I'm okay. I think I'm going into a manic phase, I have list upon list and projects to do on my page on ToDoist (great website for organizing your day and thoughts, and cheap). I was in a mixed state and we changed my meds. Maybe I'm just getting back to my version of in-between (normal-ish, lol)

I told my husband about my appointments and my surgery coming up (tubal) and he forgot to take off of work and or tell them he needed to work from home!! Even though I kept reminding him. Now I might have to drive to this place myself. I'm having bad anxiety about it because it is in a place I've never been and driving in busy traffic is one of my triggers. Especially in places I don't know. I pray he can come to a stopping point at work so he can take me like he said he would.

September also means training for the half-marathon I have coming up in November! I did 4.1 miles today, jogging! I'm proud of myself!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to September Chat !! The official kick off to end of summer, when kids go back to school and football season starts !! I think of kids going back to school, leaves turning riotous colors, hot apple cider and nippy nights in the stadium. What does September mean to you?
