Well, first, Im sorry I havent been on as much as usual. School. That explains everything. btw, I did really good with my class. I also did ok on the ACT. As some of you know, I had to make a 24 on the math so that my Calculus this school year will count as college credit...I made a 24!!!! I was really excited and proud of myself...
Ok, so that was then... this is now. Now, Im not feeling so great. I went to the doctor Thursday. I went to talk about my Fibro meds. Im staying on them for now even though they arent helping any. We were afraid to take me off because I didnt want it to get worse or affect my sleep, however, we didnt want to up the dosage... sad
I got back on my anxiety med and its doubled. Funny because he said it would probably knock me out... Nope. Hasnt affected me at all. Even though it does wonders for my allergies! Thank goodness it cleared those up again, I thought I would sneeze myself to death when I ran out and didnt have a refill! Anyways, had a bunch of blood tests. And got my thryoid checked. I used to get excited hoping something would come back wrong so that at least I would know something was wrong. Right now, it would make me very happy if my thyroid test came back abnormal. It would mean that Im not crazy. Its so easy when you know whats wrong. The thing is, I've gotten so used to nothing showing up, if something did I would be shocked.
I have been in a snappy mood lately. Sleeping alot. Laying on the couch. I have been having trouble thinking, and for those who know me, you know thats not something that usually happens to me. Having trouble focusing, my mind keeps flashing to something else and then back. I've also been eating more than usual, and the last time that happened, well...I wont go into that. So, Im sitting here trying to think things through. I didnt know what to do so I decided to type it out. But, Im still very confused about alot of things...

Hi Christi,

I just had a period where I wasn't feeling good.  I was irritable and weepy.  All of it rolled up into one.  So I can sympathize with you there.  But it did go away.  You might need something to stableize your mood, but that is something that you should talk to the doctor about.  It could be from the stress of school catching up with you too.  I mean the class that you took this summer.  Or it could be that now that it is over, you are lacking that structure again. 

Anyhow, I am happy that you posted and glad that you will have more time to post. 

Do you have any plans for the rest of the summer?  Maybe you could actually relax for a while.  I know that it is hard for you to do.  But you have been able to do a lot of things lately that you didn't think that you could.  Or maybe you were just questioning whether you could or not.  But you have made it.  And you have accomplished a lot in the past few months.

I am hoping that just writing it down made you feel better.  It does for me.  Which is so suprising, but I think just seeing the words as you type helps.

Either way I hope that you had a wonderful day today.

Hugs, Karen
