I cannot write a thing without spell checker lol When I am at work and have to speak in full sentences, I practice at my desk what I am going to say because if I have to think of a word off the cuff, I am dumbfounded and I know exactly why you feel like an idiot — but we're not. I think what's worse is that I have stopped trusting myself and others have stopped trusting me or expecting much else of me.
Now that I am off Seroquel and on Latuda I feel like I have a personality again. I don't feel anything like a zombie. I am feeling good almost too good and I can't sleep and I know it will go upward and downward from here if Latuda doesn't work for me and I can't sleep. I have been taking Seroquel every night and sleeping like a baby for almost 2 years, and there is no way I can put a bottle of sleeping pills in the cabinet and not expect to be an addict by the end of the month. Are there any meds you can stop, or anything else you can take other than Lyrica? Have you tried acupuncture?
Not everyone ages in good health and not everyone ages. Everyone has a dream. I'm not afraid to age I just don't want to give up too soon doing the things that I can enjoy. I want my 50s back. I want always to be able to change my own diapers. As long as I know I'm drooling then I will remember to reach for a tissue.
And as long as I can remember to eat my veggies and take my fish oil, with or without my no words for blanketieblank little pills, then I can expect to see Big Texas Suns sunk hot to balm bare feet and fumbling old hands lapping ice cream cone sticky drippings and summer cirrus clouds streaking night skies pleading with the rising manic daylight and dewy birds from my small kitchen corner window chair. I will be thinking of you.
Just stopping in to say hello. I had to refer to Cookie's signature on the main board because I could not remember how to spell 'weird'. I am serious.
I keep misplacing my keys, phone, the dog's leash, my coat, my clothes and other things immediatley after using them, including my mind. I have to go back and retrace my steps numerous times around the house. I am so frustrated. Even people at work are taking advantage of me when they say "I told you that. You don't remember" . Everyone at work is older than me if you can imagine that and that's why I want to work there. One co-worker is 80 and she has a better memory than I do. I'm jealous. View Thread
This is the time of year when we would rather be giving and generous to our families and others instead of being caught off guard with expensive emergency home repairs and being held hostage to outrageous labor charges. I am sorry you are not able to be more generous to your grandchildren this year.
Amen for heavenly peace and Merry Christmas to you and your family and joy in all you doView Thread
