i am feeling tons better today. i have even gotten some housework done. my nose still has a lot pressure and is still draining some but i am not as tired today as i was last week.for four days i could not stay awake no matter  how hard i tried. and then at night i was up every 2 hours changing the bandages from my nose cause it drained more at night from my snoring.
 
my life is starting to feel like it is getting on the right track. i go to see the surgeon for post op visit on wednesday, on thursday i go to see my psychiatrist to get my meds. i have a list in my phone of things i need to get done and i am almost through that list. i am starting to be able to breathe again, literally and figuratively. i know i will have some downs and i hope to ride the flow. i have to find an alnon meeting and attend one cause my caseworker wants me too so i will do at least one. that one im nervous about and im not sure i need it.
 
hubby has gotten me a kindel, which is an ereader so i now dont have to go buy books i just go online, download the books and read them from the device. it was the best christmas gift ever. all i need is a light for it and im set. i am almost done with one book now. when i told him i wanted one he told me that he didnt see the sense in it as i will still have to buy the books but he was playing it off. no more paperback or hardcover books lying around. i can download 3000 books to this thing. i have 150 books already. some i have read and some i havent but hubby spent 15 hours researching and finding all the books from stephen king, dean koontz(my favorite author) all the harry potter books and even the twighlight series. 15 hours and im sorry my gifts to him was not that lavish. i feel kinda guilty but he said he loved what i got him.
 
i have no reason to be depressed really, i have the best hubby in the world, he had two nights of no sleep taking care of me, was there for my surgery, when he had to work he called me multiple times to see if i was ok. sure we got into a small fight christmas eve but im sure some of it was lack of sleep. he is thoughtful and always  has the best surprises, and he loves me. even though i am ADD he loves me. dont get me wrong, i am still feeling kinda depressed and not normal, i know i have a long way to go til i feel normal again but i keep reminding myself what i do have and maybe just maybe i will get to be normal again.

Sounds Good Worried Girl,

I am so happy for you. That was truly a wonderful gift he got you. That would surely make my day too! You must like to read a lot. My husband is always reading. I read on the internet and in magazines, but I haven't set down and finished a book in years.

I am glad that you are feeling better. That is wonderful. One day at a time. One step at a time sometimes. Keep up the great work!

hugs, Karen

WG,
 
Glad to hear you have turned the corner.  A Kindle, that is great. I love to read and usually read 4-5 books a week.  Strolling through a bookstore is one of my favorite things to do.
 
Keep on reading and enjoy.
 
Kindly,
Kitt

Hi worriedgirl,

You sound like you've got mean spirit in you. Keep it up. As for you husband, wow he seems to be a very loving and caring man. You are most certainly lucky to have him. Keep each other well. Yeah ADHD isnt nice. I have that and bipolar 1 but it does get better. You've just to hang in there and with all good time learn to manage it well :-)

lots of hugs, arielle.

WG,
Glad to hear you are doing better. I love kindle too helps me so much in the hospital, especially when they enable text to talk because sometimes it hurts to lift a book for me (especially if they screwed up the IV site), but that is also why I love audiobooks, and Harry Potter is one of my favorite audiobooks.

I am so happy that you are feeling better. It takes the body time to heal, but it is a little each day. Before you know it, you wont even think about it anymore. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Hi worriedgirl

I am glad you are feeling better. And thank you. I like it here. Its heart warming. Yeah, ADHD is hard work isnt it? But I've had it for a fair bit and I'm managing it quite well at the moment. Hope you are too.

many hugs, arielle.
