Well, my weekend wasn't too bad, but unfortunetly, I did, for the first time in like 11 days, take a Xanax.  It was on Saturday.   I just felt panicky.  It was a feeling I haven't felt in a while, and it scared me.  I tried to stay away from the Xanax, but after like 20 minutes, I felt I had no choice.  That's OK though, they are here if I need them.  I'd just rather not use them, you know?
My parent's got a new dog, a little yorkie.  So, we spent a lot of time over there this weekend.  She is so tiny, and so cute, and my son was so good with playing with her. 
On a sad note, we rushed my Mom to the hospital.  Eveything is OK now, but she has a wound on her stomach, and it is pretty big.  She has had it for several months.  Anyway, it started bleeding out.  It was all over her pants and shirt, and pretty much down to her knees.  The ambulance took her.  In the ER they stitched her, and sent her home.  Her regular doctor wants to see her today to figure out how to heal this thing.  So, we will see how that goes.  At least she got to come back hom and is OK.  Her biggest fear is not being able to come back home cuz when we took her to the hospital last year, it was just suppose to be to build her up and get her back on her feet, and she ended up staying for many months and being on life support and the whole 9 yards.  Therefore, I can understand her fears, ya know?
So, that was my weekend.  Sorry for the rambling on.  LOL.  I hope everyone had a good weekend!!!
Happy Monday to all, and I hope we ALL have a GREAT week!

Dear Tammy,

Hey there sweetie, I think rushing your Mom to the hospital deserves a Xanax so don't you go feeling down about that.  You do what you must and the medication is there if you need it. You have come so far but you don't have to be a saint............I saved that role for me  lol (Saint Kitt).  Actually I stole the name from my favorite island.

Now I do not remember reading about your Mom and what is going on with her?  That sounds like a long hospital stay and life support is very traumatic. It must have been very stressful for all your family. AS you are so close to your parents you must be very in tune to their fears of what the future holds.

You are much stronger than you think,  so do not beat yourself up or worry about taking a med that you need.

You have my support always and email me if you feel like it.

glad your mom is ok and back home. that had to be pretty scarey. but your doing great. and one xanax in 11 days is great. you've really come along way. and its not a set back. you needed it and thats what its there for to help you through those moments. nothing to beat yourself up over. your doing great.

That's what the xanax is there for. To help you out on occasion. It sounds like you're doing well; we all have our days and yours, especially....well, that's a REALLY bad day.
