    I'm really struggling right now. I've had a number of health issues that have come up this past year- most of which were under control. Unfortunately, with the combo of all of the treatments and medications, my psych meds are now out of whack and the depression is rearing its ugly head and a few of the other health issues are now flaring up- and I am really struggling. I had one doctors appointment last week, 2-3 more this week and hopefully one with my cardiologist in the next week or two. Hopefully some kind of battle plan can be worked out soon before I completely fall apart.

    Work was horrid today- it was seriously three bad Mondays all rolled into one and now I'm starting 10 steps behind tomorrow with a similar day as today quite likely. I made it through, though- mostly. Then I came home to absolute chaos. I'm seriously barely hanging on right now. I'm going to take my strong sleeping meds tonight so I can hopefully get a few hours of goods sleep without all of the nasty dreams that are back again, so I can try to survive another day...or not- really don't care much at the moment.

    I'm sorry life is giving you the shaft right now.

    Sending healing dreams and restful sleep your way.

    Peace be the journey

    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.

    I didn't get much sleep last night either, but hopefully tonight. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow to discuss medication changes. I meet with my therapist shortly after that. And then with my cardiologist on Friday to make sure everything is still good there. Hopefully we can get a good plan in place by week's end.

    I hope so too, Jess.

    I hope you finally got some sleep.
