    Hello peeps

    Weather: getting cooler

    Sleep: ok but had strange dreams and had to sleep in the guest bedroom because my back was killing me.

    Mood: kinda down, frustrated, confused

    Plans: There is a lot going on which is bad for my LSC pain. Stress just makes it worse. My best friend is getting married tomorrow and I know that I will be in a great deal of pain because she is an hour away. Then I need to see my mother who is in the hospital. My mother has pancreatic and maybe gallbladder problems on tops of her cancer. She was in a great deal of pain but now they have her on morphine. This worries me because I'm afraid that her cancer has spread to her Gallbladder. I'm probably worrying for no reason. She is probably going to be fine. uuuggghhhh Hard not to worry.

    Not sure if I will be around here the rest of the day or tomorrow too. Have a good day all. muahs
    You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

    Weather: 43 and yet another couldy day.

    Sleep: good

    Mood: down

    Plans: Not much going on today. I have homework to do for school. I also had a therapy appt. today. That went well. I decided to go get subs for dinner so I don't have to cook. My depression right now has me beat. I can't seem to do anything and everything feels too hard. I am just tired of all of it.
