    Good afternoon my friends!

    Weather: high 80's to low 90's.

    Sleep: Pretty good

    Mood: I'm trying to function

    Plans: Get on the computer and say hi, order presents for my son's birthday and pick a wedding gift for a friend.

    I haven't been on the computer for 6 weeks. A combo of pain and being over medicated. Things are better balanced now. I may be facing back surgery in the future, but I am waiting for the birth of my first grandchild. My daughter is 34 weeks along, but she is very short, so that baby is just crammed in there.

    I hope everyone has a moment of peace now and then and may it lead to happiness.

    Hugs to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Weather: Better than yesterday...straight line winds, sunny so far, but normal rain on it's way

    Sleep: Still very little to nothing...3 days and about 6 hrs total..

    Mood: Depression still there, anxiety high, and manic between moderate and severe. No sleep continues, then it's off to crisis center

    Plans: Try to do what I couldn't do with the 13 hour power outage because of the storms. Going to lie down to listen to a recorded book and hope it bores me to sleep. Went and got my new glasses...they just make the vision worse. Had them on thinking my eyes needed to adjust, 20 minutes later a massive headache hit and they came off. Headache went away. Had lunch with hubby. That's about it.

    Have a good day!
