    Hello my dahlings

    Weather: OUCH

    Sleep: good. I am sooooo glad that I got my Lunesta back

    Mood: so far so good which is a nice change. Lately I have been feeling down because my VLSC pain has been so bad. On Sat. I started slowing down on the pain meds because I was feeling so dang doped up. My head feels so much clearer now. I also went back on my Depakote because of my depression.

    Plans: Ive already taken my dog for a walk. It was at 8:00 this morning, it was already too hot out, I was still dopey from my sleeping pill and my dog took me for a drag. No such thing as walking in her book. I also did a few things to make the house cooler. My extra work is done for the day.

    Hope your all doing well. hugs and kisses to all my dahlings on this board.
    Please join my community called GRUMPY GROUPIES ( ) Fun and serious topics, nothing is taboo. So get on over there. Weirdo's are welcomed.
