Evening. Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Son just had minor surgery and between that and my dogs and physical therapy...just haven't had much computer time.
Weather: After days of rain and SNOW (yes, SNOW on Sat), it was sunny and beautiful today.
Mood: ok but not very motivated
Plans: I went to the gym today, made dinner.
Cookie, when we got our first dog, we had looked at the petfinder site and saw a dog we thought would be perfect. Went to the shelter and she was gone. Then our dog "picked" us instead. Good luck with your search. I sometimes feel anxious and don't know why. I don't like those feelings. I guess I would rather worry about all the little things and know what I am worrying about. lol Keep up your great attitude, enjoy your hubby's time off! HOpe everyone has a good night! Sweet dreams. xoView Thread
Weather: grey, but okish. Just humid even though it isn't exactly warm.
Sleep: so so. Puppy woke me up at 4am.
Plans: did a few errands this morning. Trying to clean today. Not much energy. Watch baseball later. Do my PT exercises at some point.
Cookie, I have mistakenly taken my meds twice before. I called my pdoc and they told me the biggest danger for me was seizures. It ended up being fine. It sounds like you are in good hands and I hope this passes uneventfully for you. I worry about you but as I said...you are in good hands. xo
J...hope you had a good day. I might read instead of clean now that I think about it. lolView Thread
Debbie! Happy Birthday my friend! Hope it is filled with all your favorite things. Be good to yourself and celebrate YOU! Wish I could be with you but I will be thinking of you. Many hugs. xo View Thread
(((Melly))) I don't know what to tell you hon. I can't begin to imagine how overwhelming all this must be. Do you have a therapist to help you deal with some of this? I will be thinking of you and if I come across something helpful, I will let you know. Many hugs.View Thread
Mood: a bit up and down but ok overall. Head is noisy.
Plans: trying to clean. Not getting very far but need to do it (with no help of course). Planning to do hotdogs and burgers on the grill for dinner.
Cookie, Melly, Js....will be thinking of you all (and Debbie, Slik...goat...everyone). Sorry for those of you in pain (physically or emotionally). Take care of yourselves and know I am thinking of you and care. Hugs.View Thread
I think you just have to do what is best for YOU. I think you probably know the answers to this. It is a hard decision to make though. You are not being lazy or quitting life. You are helping yourself and making your life better. If work is making things worse for you, that is not the right thing for you in my opinion. It took me a long time to apply for disability. I have never regretted it and I am thankful for it. I never again want to be in that place that I was in when I was working and struggling so much. I had to just recognize and accept what my limits are. I am happy my friend can work, volunteer, take her daughter to extra actives, etc. I can't. Just the way it is. I had to realize that, stop comparing myself, stop expecting too much from myself. Good luck!View Thread
