Hey guys,

So, I've been off work this week on vacation. It's been really good for the most part. I am still trying to work up to 400 mg of Lamictal and as of today I got to 200 mg. It's taken a whole week to get there, so I have a couple more weeks to go.

I am feeling it definitely. I have managed to have fun and relax this week. Today however, I feel depressed and fatigued. I am going to try and get outside today, it's another beauty sunshiny day. I am going to try and read my book, although with how tired I feel, I worry that will put me to sleep!

We got out of our city and travelled a few hours to another to go to an amusement park. We rode roller coasters, spent the afternoon in the waterpark (loved the lazy river!!) and then went back to a great hotel and enjoyed our jacuzzi suite! We really enjoyed it!! LOL It was really great to get away together; I felt close to him. Now that we are back home, things have returned to normal. I miss that passionate feeling.

Unfortunately I am starting to think about going back to work on Tuesday (it's a long weekend here in Canada, so I have Monday off as well). I was just having the hardest time waking up to go to work in the mornings. I have been sleeping in all week and I worry about having to get up again.

I haven't been mood charting in over 4 weeks. And I haven't written in my journal for two months.

Things have become tense between my Mom and me. Long story there...

So I guess today, I just wanted to come on here and vent a little b/c I am feeling out of sorts today. I think it's going to be a long day....and I am feeling like I could spend all of it in bed..... :(

Anyway, I'll be around today I think.

I hope you are all treating yourselves well today,

Vacations are great aren't they? I'm glad to hear you had a nice trip, that can help a lot with our moods. It sounds like maybe you were so happy on the vacation, that maybe now you're on a bit of a low. Being on the Lamictal helped me tons, just give it a little more time. Best wishes.

Glad you had fun.

I HAVE to ask - since I was in Canada last week on vacation. The stoplights are so odd! What does "advance green" mean? "delayed green"? And what does it mean when a green light is flashing?!

LOL tortoise!

Okay....

Advanced greens can be:

A flashing green light: means the traffic facing that light may turn left, turn right or proceed straight, while the traffic opposite is facing a red....

A green arrow and green light: traffic may turn left, turn right or proceed straight while the traffic on the other side is facing a red light....

A green arrow on the bottom, red light on the top: traffic may turn left only (this green arrow and red light will be facing both sides) So both sides are turning left while the traffic waiting to turn right or go straight. The traffic waiting is on a delayed green.....

Hope that makes sense! I am sure it's confusing!

When there is an advanced left on both sides of traffic, but there is a red light above the green advanced light, the traffic that is facing the red...that is a delayed green, bc they are waiting for the advanced traffic to go through first before the red light turns green....make sense? It's hard to explain....LOL
