    Morning all

    Weather: Same as yesterday. Hot with rising humidity

    Sleep: Questionable. I'll explain at the end of this posting

    Mood: I feel stable but at the same time there's that underlying depression battling to outrun stable. Fighting it this time

    Plans: Laundry. Figure out of the SSI came through since the banks automated systems (all of them) went down. Maybe we'll all get lucky and SS pushed through ALL of the payments including SSDI today in preparation for the gov't closing down. Talk about optimism? Try not to think about the aftermath of the family conference I had with hubs and the supposed discharge nurse. Needless to say hubs is no where near ready to be discharged into a SA program and I still have issues that need to be addressed before he does. Phone time for me today. Later on I'll take the 1 1/2 hr walk to the bus, the 2 hr bus trip and repeat coming home to go see him. And visiting hours are 6-8. So not happy. Probably grab dinner along the way somewhere.

    Ohhhhhhh. And I am pretty sure one of my new meds causes sleep walking AND sleep texting. Trying to undo those are going to be fun. One set not bad at all. The other? OMG. I think I was txting the other person because their first names are the same

    Melly honey, OMG! Sleep walking can be so dangerous. Heck, you may start to sleep drive. I was on a sleeping pill(cant remember the name) and I would stay up for hours watching movies and eating all kinds of stuff. (TRIGGER) I had sex with hubby and didnt remeber any thing. Tank God it was with my hubby

    You take care hun. muahs

    Weather: low 80's and beautiful

    Sleep: as much as can be had with a newborn baby

    mood: low and hoping to get over this terrible sadness sooner than later.

    Plans: get lithium levels checked and that's about all. I still can't drive because of the c-section.

    Melly, I hope things get easier soon . (((hugs)))

    You have no idea. The sleepwalking I can deal with. Really. It's the sleep texting. One was ok. We already talk about everything and nothing is ever really surprising, for either of, lately. But I sent a text or two that I must have THOUGHT went to my bff. And I haven't talked to this person in 5 yrs. Why his name is in my phone even is a mystery. I had to literally cut this man out of my life as in I never want to see or hear from you again. And what do I do? I sleep text him something so unexplicably personal meant only for my bff and it's just opened up a can of worms that even now I am trying to shove away. UGH. Can't believe I did that. BFF who gets up to go to work at like 3am told me I'd been texting him all morning. And duh! I argued the fact and he finally demanded I look at my txt history and there it was. I don't remember any of it. So he made lots of fun of me and even about the other guy too. So not happy with myself. SMH
