Topsyturvy, Glad to hear about your new job. Best wishes for that working out for you. How did your appointment go on Monday? mommy.michele, I'm very sorry to hear about your brother. I understand why you are a little bummed out. Do what you can but I hope you don't let it get you too down. This is his walk and he has to go through it. I'm sure there are other family members that can chip in with support so that you don't have to get too involved. I mean that with all sincerity...I don't want his mood to bring you too far down. Take care of yourself.
Sukay, I'm hangin tough. Had a few more health concerns that I had to take care of and some of them are pretty tricky relating to what I already have on my plate so I've been spending more time getting lots of tests done.
I like the cooler weather and shorter days. It forces me to slow down and focus more on myself. I read more and bake treats more for the family.
My dog has been very ill and that has brought me down but she is finally getting better so I am too.
I'm still rapid cycling and I keep forgetting to take that afternoon dosage of my mood stabilizer even though I set my alarm, I keep saying..."Ok, I'll do that in a minute and then forget." I'm very irritable at times but other times I feel very, very sad and just want to give up. I see my therapist every two weeks.
~Have a Peaceful Day~
I think it's time for a Group Hug!
((((Hugs to all of you))))
The weather, yep, now that I actually had a deck this year to sit out on, and since it's been raining and cold almost everyday for the last 2 weeks, it has not helped my depression one bit. I usually love the fall, but this year I still want to be out on the deck.
Sukay, I hope your dog is okay. Our dog and cat are our whole lives, and I still remember Halloween 3 years ago when my kitty was so ill we had to take him to the emergency vet. I remember pacing in the waiting room waiting for them to tell me something, I thought I was going to lose him that night. But our black kitty (Mogli) is still with us, thank goodness. As for our dog, he has ear infections a lot, he just got over another one, so that is always stressful. Hopefully your girl is better, I know she was in good hands
Serafena, I know you were going through a lot, I hope that each day has been getting easier for you. You have been in my thoughts, as you all are.
Mommy.michele, hope your brother is coping. What a shock. I can't imagine....Hope you are doing well.
Topsyturvy, I just got a new job as a secretary too, I can relate, hope yours is going well. Working is good, I think. I don't cope well staying at home.
