Happy Saturday Afternoon to you All! (From New Jersey at least, LOL!)
This week was chock full of highs and lows. Although it might sound as if this is low, it really isn’t. My brother finally sought help and is set up in a shelter for the homeless. Listen, after begging him to go to Social Services, and getting help for over a year…this is really a high.
I thought I’d hear from him more so over the course of the week but after the initial beginning of the week and facing his fears, I suppose he is finding his way.
On Tuesday, I went to our counties mental health facility to see yet another new psychiatrist. To my surprise, this one did their homework and read my case files. We tweaked my Lamictal (Lamotrigine) from 50mg to 100mg. I have noticed myself feeling more motivated and level in less than a full week. However, the Xanax is giving me very vivid dreams since Tuesday evening. Thank goodness, I don’t have to take this for very long. It’s simply to help with the sleep patterns that have been screwed up for the last couple of weeks.
Thursday, I learned that my mother was admitted back into the hospital for an ongoing infection in her ankles. She had this when I had visited her last November. She has already been in the hospital for this, in fact, it was only a week after I had come back home from my visit with her. This upcoming Monday, she is going for surgery to remove the fluids and take care of the sores that have formed on the outside of her ankles. I’m so grateful for the aid that is assisting her weekly to be there for her. She is a very kind woman and I trust her. Most importantly, my mother trusts her as well.
This week, I feel a high being back here on WordPress. Sure, I know I have mentioned this before, but this week, I feel as if I found my groove back.
Today, I simply went food shopping with my roommate, and plan on making dinner for both of us. Not such a fancy, five-star meal, just mac & cheese with little weenies. (miniature hot dogs, that is). Then, I plan on kicking back with Netflix.
Tomorrow, I plan on cleaning, taking care of Peanuts cage, and chilling out by being here. Reading is so relaxing for me. I just want one day to myself completely.
I hope that you have had a good week and most importantly, I hope you are having a pleasant weekend.
Take Care & God Bless,
