    Weather: Rainy, but haven't gone outside to check the temp

    Sleep: ummm...i fell asleep on the couch around 2 am and i woke up at 2:30 this afternoon. I dreamed all night that hubs died in a car accident and the whole disaster that always follows after.

    Mood: Definately depressed. Anxiety high

    Plans: Day is shot. I'm crying already. Yesterday all I wanted was for hubs to go to work so I could have some time to myself. Today I feel unbelievably alone. Pdoc took away the last of the Trileptal which I expected. He up'd my Celexa by 20 mg, and refused to change my klonapin to something else. we're supposed to pick up the boys tonight. I miss them, but don't want them to see me like this right now. Afraid this is going to go on all weekend. Thinking there's a hospital visit in my very near future. As in if things don't change by mid-next week I am going to ask to go.

    Hey cookie

    do you always ask questions you have answers to? just kidding. is it true that people only have bad dreams when there aren't any good ones around? i have said this here before long ago, when i was young, i asked God to take away my dreams, and He did. So for all these years (30 ) I wake up clueless. dreams (bad or good) keep us in sync with our own little world. when they are bad, it has lots to do with P.O.V. if our perception (BP's are great at this!) down, negative, passive (such as your relationship with your woman part). BP's are by nature like this so their dreams can follow suit. does that mean a bad dream stays bad? get coo coo for coco puffs and ave a great day despite that woman part...

    Take from each day, all that it gives to you, return only to it, nothing less than the very best that you have to offer.
