    Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on much lately. Haven't been feeling well, mainly because of this new med my doctor had me on. No more!!! I am free of the problem that caused me to have to take that med and I can finally go back to my normal routine. Thank God!!!

    Weather: Cool in the morning but warmed up this afternoon. Had a cold front go through this week-end and boy did it feel like winter!!! Doing much better now and supposed to get back in the 80's the next few days.

    Sleep: Not enough!!! Had to get up early for a doctor's appt. Did not want to!!!!

    Mood: Still manic as all get out. May be finally starting to come down.

    Plans: Saw my doctor this morning. Got a clean bill of health so the problem that Matt and I were worrying so bad about has gone away. Got some money from my mom for my birthday. Going to Golden Coral to celebrate both it and my clean bill of health. Then Wal-Mart and maybe Pet's Mart if it's still open when we leave the restaurant. Hope everyone has a good Halloween. Take care and hugs to anyone who needs/wants them.

    Good evening all & Happy Halloween & Many prayers for those of you who live on the east coast -

    I don't want to be a party pooper so I am coming to Cookie's Halloween party fashionably late and I will bring a friend ...

    Weather: I want it to be cool and crisp again as long as it is sunny

    Sleep: Very good

    Mood: Very irritable and I don't know why. I have been this way for a few months and I don't like it. Got some depression going on too. It could be one of my meds. Something is making me irritable other than being over weight. I feel like am being mean and I probably am. I have been withdrawn at work and very quiet and busy - like leave me the heck alone.

    Plans: Fold laundry in dryer, play with Ray and do some yoga. No candy (I will eat it) and turned the front porch light off. It they proceed, there is a note on my front door 'No Candy Here'.

    Happy Halloween Everyone!

    I survived Sandy!

    Weather:Cold rainy light snow high 53

    Sleep:Out of whack

    Mood:Sad and lost

    Plans:The reason I've not been on the board lately is because I found out that I'm losing my therapist of almost 3yrs due to state guidelines. Today was my last therapy session with my awesome T Mike. I'm going to miss him so much (in tears as I type). He is going to try to pick my new therapist out for me, so it's a good fit for me which I greatly appreciate. I've been going back and forth about moving from mobile therapy to outpatient. I was brave this morning in saying so long and see ya around but right now I'm not so brave. Just feeling really lost and sad. I've not been sleeping well thru all of this.

    hi everyone....sorry i haven't been around. the poop's been flying in all directions lately.

    Weather: Pleasantly fall like with temps at night in the 50's and days high 60's

    Sleep: Getting it, but not very restful. Been taking an extra klonapin to knock me out, but apparently, tonight it isn't working.

    Mood: Mixed episode - still

    Plans: Spent the day house shopping. Arguing with S. Making amends with MIL. Tired of everything being this HUGE ordeal. Watched Peanuts tonight. No trick-or-treaters. My oldest is too old and cool. 15. You know. Youngest went with a friend in another neighborhood. Just another lonely holiday without them. I've asked to have them for Turkey Day about a week ago. No response. Typical. Need surgery but can't afford it. Nothing else big to report.

    I know there's a lot of people having a rough time. I wish I could comment, but I really don't have anything to contribute. Just know I wish all of you well.

    Hey Jselleck honey, Im so glad that your doing better. Send me some of your mania. Hope you had a good night. hugs

    Mercy Hun, So glad you could show up to my party. Your costume is sexy. Bow chicka bow bow!!!! The stuffy is adorable. I'm gaining weight too. I can't fit into my clothes anymore. I'm retaining water, it looks like I'm pregnant, my butt is flabby and my thighs are big. I want to know why the weight didn't go to my boobs. You take care honey child. muahs

    Lexis mom, So sorry about your grandma. Big hugs to you. Take care.

    Wolfe dahling, I hope you will feel better soon. I hate to think that your depressed. Take care. muahs

    Melly Sweetie, I have missed you. Wow, things are still crazy and stressful over there eh? Poor you. You need a vacation, by yourself. Take care. hugs
