    Good morning all....

    Weather: We saw freeze temps overnight. Supposed to go to 60 today

    Sleep: Um, it's 5:30 AM and I haven't seen the pillow yet. Can't turn off the mind

    Mood: Quickly sliding into depression, fearful and anxious

    Plans: Need to call various dr's for both dh and me. Do a little bit more cleaning. Thinking meatloaf for dinner. Hopefully sleep a bit and I have to sort and do the meds today.

    Hello my beeper dahlings

    Weather: very nice out side. My guesstimation is that it will get up to 80 degs. The weather report says it will get up to 76 degs, its 11:00 and its already that hot

    Sleep: uuggghhh. My dog had another attack of colitis. (not sure if they call it an attack.) So I was up with her most of the night trying to sooth her. Poor baby

    Mood: good for now, but if my pain issues start then I will prob. be a bit depressed and pissy

    Plans: dishes, pick up house, take care of doggy and make some earrings. I made this awsome leopard print bracelet and matching necklace. I will probably send it to my daughter but then again, I may keep it cause I really like it. LOL. I could make something else for her.

    hugs to all

    Weather - cool but sunny

    Sleep - good

    Mood - slightly depressed, irritated, frustrated

    Plans - get out, doing what? I don't know, I don't care, just get out. I do need to go pick up something at the lab to test my adrenaline levels, so wil likely do that today. I'm frustrated because even though I took provigil this morning, I still went back to sleep for 2 more hours and woke up depressed - that's the first time that has happened with provigil. I don't take it everyday but have been needing to take it more than normal; i just hope it's not getting to the point where i have to take more. it's not addictive, so i do'nt know. Also, my period is about 2 weeks late because it's getting irregular due to getting closer to menapause....yes, end this crap! lol so that's making it feel like im having one long PMS and I'm about to jump out of my skin! I'm going to my mom's on Wed after rescheduling twice already, and right now, I want to reschedule again, but i feel bad about doing so. Hopefully by then I'll be Ok to go.

    Anyway, have a good day, everyone!

    Weather: Very nice. Supposed to get up to 81 today. (=

    Sleep: Not enough. This new med is sooo not working. )= Need to get some sleep SOON!!!

    Mood: Doing okay I guess??? Still kinda manic.

    Plans: Took Jack to the vet this morning to get his teeth cleaned. Cried the entire way, poor thing. Hubbie has a doctor's appt this afternoon, and maybe physical therapy this evening. Not totally sure what we're up to. Just know we're busy. Hope everyone has a good day. (((((((Hugs))))))))

    Thanks cookie....

    I know you are. I'm just upset that no one has an answer regarding the major medical issues. And the longer they last, the more worried I get. I know intellectually that I will adjust to being impaired in one eye eventually, but I suppose I keep hoping. There's some other things going on that I haven't decided if it's the bipolar/depression talking or if it's reality. I just feel like second-guessing is my life. It sucks.

    Thanks for caring.

    Weather: Rainy

    Sleep: sporadic

    Mood: groggy and depressed

    Had some, but now don't want to do anything but go back to bed. Have an appointment today for a memory specialist, and was hoping I could get home tonight and play a few board games with my son.

    Very drowsy and falling asleep multiple times at work. Would use FMLA to go home, but haven't gotten the approval for the renewal for this month.
