    Mucky Monday Daily Bipolar Post/ possible triggers

    Hello my Dahlings

    Weather: sunny

    Sleep: good

    Mood: up down up down up down. I HATE Mondays anyways so on top of that Im still hurting down in no-where-mans-land (trust me, hubby would know), I feel like a have a YI or BI but half of the time I really don't have an inf. at all. Plus Menopause, Bipolar, losing my hair, bordom, blah blah blah.

    (possible trigger) Tomorrow is Feb. 5th, which is the day that my lovely, sweet dog Cookie passed away. The year was 2009. We will light a candle next to her urn. So tomorrow prob. won't be a good day for me.

    Plans: chores and play with the pup.

    Love ya guys. muahs

    p.s. I will be sending out some little kiddie Valentines cards to you guys. I ran out of stamps, so some of you may get the cards late.

    Weather: Chilly, overcast

    Sleep: rough; couldn't get to sleep until late

    Mood: started out good, now headed down

    Plans: none, so far

    I started the day out well and really positive, but kind of headed down right now. In the office I work in, it can get pretty noisy but its always been easy to tune out. Today is one of those days where its near impossible to, and all of everything is jangling on my nerves. I'm bordering on over-stimulation. Took an Ativan and am waiting for it to kick in good.
    On my good days, I wonder why it is I'd be willing to take such a financial cut to go on indefinite disability (its an option through work; one I haven't chosen to take yet), why when everything's so easy.
    Then it kind of falls into afternoons like this, and I wonder how in the world I can possibly make it through another day like this. *sigh* I'm so confused about this right now, and holding on with the tips of my fingers.
