Hi, Display here.

Had a bit of a rough night last night. Woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. As a result, I am tired today, and as usual when I am tired, I feel down and worried and depressed.

One really annoying thing is that I went on a website about health care options, and (stupidly) gave out my phone number. Now I have received at least a dozen phone calls the last few days, bugging me about signing up. Ugh.

In a bit, I am going to take a shower and clean up. That always makes me feel better.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Display,

I am on the anxious side today. I have to go to a funeral of a friend. I am noot looking forward to it. Had to take a xanax because of anxiety, so I should be feeling better shortly. Holidays coming up and I have my mind on that too. Got to take it one day at a time. And stay in the moment.

I am sorry for the people calling you. That is always annoying. Do you have caller ID? You could just not answer their calls. I avoided something like that and finally I answered and then they quit calling. The internet can get you in some sticky situations. I have had that happen before. They put bills on my phone bill. I never even said I wanted whatever it was that they had. I am very careful now.

Can you take a short nap? That might make you feel better. I forgot to take my morning meds this morning. Felt lousy until they finally kicked in. Due for afternoon all ready. Should be feeling better soon. I am so sick of medications, but got to take them none the less. I truly hope that you feel better.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks Karen.

Yes, I did take a nap and feel much better.

I was worrying a lot earlier about money - still am. I'm just trying to get ready for the possibility I won't earn as much in my new job as I did in my old one.

Also, I decided to just stay in today and that always makes me feel isolated. But the truth is, once I decide to stay in, I won't go out. Well, perhaps I will open the sliding door and sit on the edge of my patio.

This job searching is hard. I don't know if I have what it takes to actually get a job. It seems to require getting out and meeting people, and that is not something I enjoy or am good at. And I seem to lack the self-discipline to make myself do something I don't want to do.

I guess I will just keep praying and doing the next thing.

Hi Displayy,

I pretty muuch stayed in today, except I took my dog for a walk. But I have to attend a funeral today so I have been a little anxious. There will probably be a lot of people there. It is in a bar though so I can have a drink and relax. But I get anxious when I have to be around a lot of people like that. I know it is silly. Everybody will be relaxed, I should be too. I just don't like having to be somewhere when I don't really feel like going anywhere. I isolate in the winter. And we have long winters.

You are right about the job hunting, it does require getting out and making sure that they know you are very interested in the position. And the actual working part. Getting out. But sometimes it does us good to have the structure in our lives. And that alone helps. I wish you much luck. I really do hope that you get the job and that you like it.

Take care,

Hugs, Karen

I sure hope you can get some much need rest
tonight, maybe look into getting a supplement called melatonin

Maggie,

Didn't you just start a new medication? The hydrocodone? Do you think it could have anything to do with the way you are feeling now? Just thinking...

I sure do hope that you feel better soon and aren't so sleepy.

Maggie....I am so sorry to hear you have not been feeling well , I think Karen might be right it could be your new meds. I remember about a year ago i had a change in meds and I could barely keep my eyes open. The dose was to high for me. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Take care, Amy
