Twisted Tuesday - daily post may contain TRIGGERS
melly2210 posted:
Afternoon everyone! Beep Beep!!!!!

Weather: Hotter than heck out there. Index is over 100.

Sleep: Was ok til about 3am. Wide awake, took OTC sleep aid which knocked me out a couple more hours.

Mood: Anxiety filled, still depressed but reflecting severe manic symptoms. I am running around doing EVERYTHING.

Plans: Pretty much everything around the house and outside too. Boys are helping me a lot but with a lot of dragging of feet. But that's ok. I'm bouncing off the walls anyway. DS1 keeps telling me I need to stop and slow down. DS2 who isn't understanding my behavior keeps telling me I need to take a nap. HAHA! No idea when hubs will be home. Cook dinner. Then I have no clue because I'll be out of things to do.

It has dawned on me today: What am I going to do with my manic episodes like the one I am on today when I am blind? <sigh>

Cookie, if you are reading this, I am thinking of you all day and hope the pain is minimal and this FINALLY brings you some relief.

Hope you all have a good Tuesday!

Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all. ~Emily Dickinson
