BP brings new meaning to Life's Little Ups and Downs
Hey, Nick, I'm glad to see you back, sweetie. I know it's no fun, but I am proud of you for finally going, I've been a couple of times myself. Sometimes there's just nothing else you can do. You will be a GREAT surgical tech, I have no doubts at all, this is simply a bump in the road. You're the best, girl!
Sorry to hear that things have been so chaotic lately. I finished school two years ago so all the memories are still painfully fresh. My heart goes out to you - there is a lot on your plate and it was important that you took the time to get yourself well - you have so much to be proud of in your life. I really admire all the hard work you put into all you do - being a Mom and a student all at once. I wasn't diagnosed BP until I had finished school, but I wish I had known it then. I always felt so inadequate and so lazy since I couldn't keep up with the class and had so much trouble keeping it all together which all added to the stress. Now, I just try to remember that everyone has their own challenges and for us, its BP.
Keep taking good care of yourself!
Hi, sweetie! I'm glad you're feeling better; the exhaustion does take several days to go away, all that energy spent takes a real toll on the ol' bod!
I also remember going to school full time and working full time to support myself as well, but I didn't have a husband or kids to deal with; that was plenty hard enough! I loved school, but OMG what I wouldn't give for a long break sometimes!
I agree, you should talk to your doc about losing the valium - way too sedating IMO. Not just mind, but body too, it's also used as a potent muscle relaxer. Ask your doc about some Klonopin, it is used a LOT in BP patients, it works really really well for most as Ellie can tell you! And me too!
Email me when you can, I will understand if you're way busy, I'm sure you have a lot to catch up on!
