Yeah... it's kind of like a ghost town in here at the moment.

It's good to hear from you SK. How are you doing?

Hey, there. Oh, I just figured ya'll could here my screams of frustration anywhere, ha. Just sick of spinning my wheels and getting nowhere. Sick of feeling sick and tired emotionally and physically.

I have a script on my desk for Wellbutrin that I probably do need again. I have to send it off to a mail order place under my insurance. I keep staring at it hating the thought of going back on meds, but I guess it is what it is. I will try to get that in the mail this week. By the time it's processed and meds actually show up in my mailbox, it will be a couple of weeks at least, and then I have to wait for them to begin working, so I'm not expecting much change until July.

I had an appointment this Friday with my T, but I cancelled. Just not up to going and him seeing that nothing has changed. Guess I'm a bit ashamed of not "snapping out of it" by now - the funk I'm in.

I do manage to mow my lawns when I can, but my house is a total disaster, and I can't seem to get to the hedges or weeding that needs doing. I just noticed yesterday that there is some crazy vine grown up half way over one of my living room windows - ooops! I'll try to tackle that this week so at least it looks like someone is living here, ha. But I guess with the grass mown, it doesn't look totally out of whack.

I wish I had the energy and a few extra bucks to plant some flowers around, but I just don't. Sigh.

How are you? Always loved your teddy bear pic, by the way. Thanks for checking with us.

That's the latest from me. Just spinning my wheels like a hamster in a cage - getting nowhere, but that's a bad analogy because at least the hamster is burning calories.

oh, oops, my pic is gone! Will fix. Was messing with my accounts yesterday. Decided to keep my identity totally separate from the other board I'm on re weight loss.

I don't have much of a status report other than I'm still around. *waves* I just got back home from running errands re light and water bills, and gave Foxy a sweet um... kinda like a graham cracker but not quite, so he's hopped up now. LOL

I've been hanging in there. I hope everyone else has been doing alright out there too.

Hey, that is a most excellent status! I'm glad you are still around.

Will sit and color awhile, if you like.

Oh, ya, I'm still around. Glad to see you, too!!! How is life treating you these days?

I'm trying to stay upbeat today and keep busy. I did cancel my T's appointment for this morning, so it will be another 2 weeks before I see him again. I just wanted a break, I guess. Nothing much has changed, so, you know...That means it will be a whole month between appointments. Depending how I'm doing in 2 weeks, I may cancel again. I'm thinking of taking the summer off from therapy sessions. I just need time to let some things sink in and begin doing things that I know I need to do.

I would dearly love to make a couple of positive changes in my life before seeing him again to be able to report something positive for a change. Does anyone understand what I mean? He is a few years younger than I am, yet I see him as a positive father figure in my life, and I would just like to be able to report back to him something good once in a while, I guess. He is okay with that "fatherly" role, too. Back a long time ago when my inner child was seeing him way more than I was, we would even send him a Father's Day card, and he was cool with that. I don't think my inner child is quite that small anymore...sometimes she feels that way, but in general she has grown up a little, too.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around making wiser and healthier choices for her/us and being my own parent...You know, when I'm upset maybe go whack on a hedge that needs trimming anyway instead of buying a pint of ice cream and wolfing it down. Stuff like that.

However, sometimes only curling up in a blanket or sitting down with a coloring book and crayons will soothe me, where I can color the leaves or animals any color I want to and even color outside the lines, and it won't matter.

Guess I've rambled long enough. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Be safe.

I can understand why you might want to take a break from your T for awhile as you work out some things. I've been doing some cleaning this morning. It is usually hot here today so I couldn't go down to the beach but I thought I would work on a few things here at home. Foxy is laying out right now relaxing... Little does he know that I'm going grab him in a minute and brush him down. LOL Maybe I'll bribe him with a treat as I do it so he won't try so hard to get away.

I like to think of that picture as my thoughtful/pensive and bad hair day look.... Hehe
