    Guess I will start this for the day.

    Weather: supposed to warm up to low 80s and partly cloudy

    Sleep: good

    Mood: irritable and frustrated

    Plans: make phone calls and go to my appts today. I meet my manager's off of my apt to turn in the paper work to get my rent reduced due to pay cut at work. Then later in the day I see my T. I got a lot to tell her rattle it off.

    Right now I am thinking of making major changes in my life after my lease ends, I am moving to a better accessible place. Not everyone is going to be happy with my decision but really its my life and I felt like they are holding me back. I am not getting the appropriate help here. I am also still waiting on my stupid glasses to come in too. Once I get paperwork done, I will announce my plans and let them have it. Thats why I am making phone calls today to iron out my plans and get more info.

    guess thats all I want to say as of now.

    hi Beej...good luck! For me, I'm kind of forcing the post out.....

    Weather: cooled way down. Mid-70's but we'll see mid-80's before day is out

    Sleep: Interupted first by S calling in to day labor to cancel his ticket because of me....then the 7am, can't be ignored texts began

    Mood: Depressed, overwhelmed, completely pissed off, hurt, confused, disappointed. I think I am running the gamet.

    Plans: Waiting to hear if a check I really need to take care of business is really valid. If so, cash at issuing back and then deposit cash into mine. Call about the cable since no one seems to know how to handle an error in billing but me around here. Wait for my legal aid consult at 3 and add to the list. I hate being a witch, but it's reached a point that there is no choice in the matter. And of course call the pdoc with all that and see what he wants me to do. But given the symptoms haven't leveled out and beyond acting drunk, severe forgetfulness, itchiness all over without a rash, I can now add auditory and visual hallucinations. Not bad, weird ones. Just lights and beeps. Enough to startle me or cause me to go looking for what doesn't exist. I am trying to avoid hospitalization at all costs, especially since the court order from 4 years ago has yet again been brought up because the ex is so far mentally gone, he's not keeping up with the boys' schoolwork and I've stepped up and taken that one. Spitefulness is such a horrible thing. Well that's about it. But I think it's way more than enough.

    Good evening

    weather chilly

    sleep awesome

    mood kinda weird

    plans pretty much all done for the day. Just got the $100's of dollars worth of med in each cat. They all have major pink eye, a respiratory infections and 4 of them have bacterial infections in their ears, and the baby I found has ear mites. I have only one cat who isn't sick but he gets preventative meds so He doesn't get devil eyes. It's quite a project trying to keep all the meds straight and which ones go in the fridge. I'm losing my mind.....ooh yea, I already lost it. They all have officiall run me to the poor house. I told my husband it would have been cheaper to put them to sleep.....but he knows me and knows that will never happen. I love my babies too much and have to get them all well. I hate seeing those poor red swollen eyes. They are killing me.
