I overall have had a good holiday. No $ mania...even with the Christmas shopping. We tried to spend a few days at our land, but ended up staying only one night. There was so much snow we couldn't even drive all the way back to our lot so we used the quad to get about 8 loads of our stuff to the trailer. With a 15,10 & 6 year old girls it is hard to keep everyone happy and busy in those circumstances, so we packed it up! So that was kinda stressful, and might I add painful, I strained my back somehow. But we did have fun that night playing cards and sitting around the campfire.
I'm glad you had a good time and I bet you loved to get home...I know how that feels :)
Hey all! I had a good Xmas! Hope you all did too!? I was generally ok, but a few days where I was down and struggling and a few when I was down and struggling and then ok by the afternoon, then struggling again at night! LOL!
My first day back at work today and I really dont wanna be here. I just want to tuck myself away and do some writing. Still waiting for my Psych appointment....god bless the British NHS...it has the speed of a snail!
I've been sleeping 3-4 hours in a row most nights and then waking up and dozing and often falling asleep again so I've been lucky. Often wake up after those 3-4 hours thinking tho and that sometimes means I'm lucky to just doze. Mornings have been the worst for me I think.
Anyway, speak soon xxxx
Hi, I am not feeling great. Yesturday I was hyper and couldn't stay in one place all day. Doc is starting me on Geodon tonight. Just came out of a 2 month long depression and now I feel either numb or like crying wondering WHY this is happening. I just have had symptoms of this BP 2 for the past 7 months and am still baffled and angry and sad wondering where my life is going. I don't want to get out of bed in the am because I never know what mood will be there.
Sorry this was so long and thatnks for asking. How are you doing?
Had a decent holiday, and the end to a too stressful year. 2009 will hopefully be alot better. Still battling a low grade depression, but some days are better than others. ALso didnt spend to much, actually just spent 350.00 on ebay yesterday. However that was all i have spent lately and it was for something i have been looking for for over year and was a great example of the item.
Seeing a doctor soon but have learned to live on abilify. No more skin crawling, feelign like jumping out of my skin feelings.
Again, heres hoping to a great new year to all of us.
Been gone a while. My wife and I were so broke for a while we had to drop our cable.
Things inproving. I had a wreck a while back, I explained it in an earlier post. Due to my over-reaction I have to go to court for resisting arrest. I have a long arrest record, but after the court looked at the circumstances and how it is associated with my disease they backed off some. Had to be evaluated. Lawyer thinks I most likely get a suspended sentence and probation.
Spent some time at the hosp due to depression. Had bad rash reaction to ambilify.
I'm working as a stocker at a grocery store. Pays very little but it is easy. Have to walk everywhere because we only have one car now and my wife needs it for her work. My 3 mile walk to and from work is helping, I need the exercise. Today, on my walk to work I helped a guy with a clogged fuel filter on his car, it was nice to help someone out.
Happy New Year from BP Gemini,
Low-key holiday, slight ups and downs but ok now. Off all meds except Xanax occasionally, have gone herbal again because I have been on every mood stabilizer known to man and cannot get stable or tolerate any of them. My PDoc retired and now I have to find another one but what is the point? If there job is to prescribe medication that I can't take, what is the point of going? Oh well, I will figure something out. Actually, I have felt pretty good for the last week considering, holidays, things going crazy at work, etc.
I hope 2009 is a great year for all of us.
