    Good morning

    Weather: kind of rainy

    Sleep: not good

    Mood: irritable and overwhelmed..."noisy" day

    Plans: not really sure. I am up and dressed which is something. Went out for coffee so I could get away from everything at home for 5 minutes. Puppycare is off to a bad start (biting) and I had to crate her and get some space. I feel bad but I guess at least I know when I need to do that.
    I got bit by something on my stomach yesterday (just odd) and it itches like crazy. That was why I couldn't sleep last night. Bendryl spray helps some. We have West Nile and EEE here in our state and someone just died from the EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis) so the bug bites worry me a bit.
    Just one of those days where things are getting to me. Yesterday had the first phone call of the year from the school about my youngest. Sigh. Have been letting him go without meds at his request and needless to say, he is back on meds today (Ritalin).
    At any rate, sorry for rambling. Now that school is back in session, I SHOULD have a little more computer time again.
    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Plans: pay bills and make phone calls ect.

    I just got out of the hospital yesterday so not so great. just feels weird being out. They adjusted my meds its better I guess. I see my regular pdoc next week and talk to her about trying something different maybe but it may not work. I hate the ins people they are such a pain. they approve some meds and some not. aaaaaahhhhhhh.

    Hello my dahlings

    Weather: too hot

    Sleep: great

    Mood: just horrible. up and down and up and down. One minute I want to cry, then I get angry and lose my temper. Im frustrated, irritated, stressed (dont know why). I keep having these hot flashes and every now and then I feel cold. I guess thats what happens when your menopausal. Stupid mother nature.

    Plans: as little as possible. Im in a great deal of pain and Im sick of this crap. Friday cant get here soon enough. I just want to have my friggin procedure done.

    Tonight, the first day of Football, I will be watching it from my bed, since my LSC is causing me to be miserable. I will prob. have to lay down and watch Football.

    Here I am in tears again. No worries though, I will probably be angry in 5 mins. *shrug*

    love ya's, muahs

    p.s. I wont be on very much. sorry

    Weather: SSDD...

    Sleep: Oh yeah, I remember this word

    Mood: Mixed episode. I'm hyper as hell and depressed. Two more weeks to see the pdoc. Orig appt got cx by Hurricane Isaac, which to us was just a rainy day

    Plans: Started with criminal court for the dv charges against dd's bf. Then to Workforce for her appt about a GED. Got referred and convinced her not to take the easy way out and to get a HS diploma. Took her to that school and she registered! Starts the 20th. Celebration lunch. Then home. Budget checks..and of course because of all the extra driving around, we're overbudget ALREADY this month. Prolly gonna take an extra klonapin to sleep and if that doesn't work, add in an extra seroquel. Gotta be careful cause we have visitation tomorrow.

    Good Evening All!

    Weather:Sunny slightly cool high 78



    Plans:I discussed with my T today about some changes that I want to do but afraid of doing them. I pinpointed some triggers for me which is something I'd been avoiding doing cuz I already knew what couple of them were but they are not the same triggers of six months ago. I went to psych rehab which helped my stress levels quite a bit after having therapy today. I'm going back to psych rehab tomorrow. I did some journaling which also helped me feel better. I crashed on the couch for couple of hours too.
