Good to see you here.I'm not getting caught up ont he last few pages.
Weekend plans: last night, Nick came over and we went out to eat and he took me to Walmart to pick up some things, and Petco to get a new tower for the cats. Then he fixed my computer. I sent him home with two big pans of homemade brownies (one for the cabin closer today--I roasted walnuts for thsoe brownies!).
Today: A friend is bringing me lunch and a big bag of weed!:D
I had my first cocktail in a week last night (my care coordinator told me I can have a drink -- and it was really with the tone of, "need a drink, have one, but no boozing it up"). I won't be allowed to drink once I get on more meds so I wanted to enjoy one while I can. I think it played a role in helping me to sleep through the entire night (first time in weeks). It was wonderful.
Tomorrow: Keep cleaning. I can do only so much at a time before I have to sit down and catch my breath. I wish they'd sent me home with a nebulizer. I have an inhaler to use up to four times a day, and my Xanax (anti-anxiety, but it has to do with breathing as well somehow) is for bedtime only, but a neb would help a lot.
so I basically sit at the computer and play wow, and take frequent breaks to do small things.
Walking down my long hallway leaves me winded.
This is so surreal!!!
And I'm hungry! I splurged and bought comfort foods to encourage me to eat. Peanut butter capn crunch, toaster strudel (!), etc. I ate more yesterday than I've eaten in a month in a single day. Nick even was happy with that.
Nick is stoic like me, but he admitted that he nearly broke down in the showers at the gym yesterday.:(
Look at it this way: at least this didn't happen during softball season because you would be sh*t at running the bases.
You have been inundated I am sure ( and if the weather reports are accurate that is probably true literally and metaphorically). I sent you a PM the other day with more than just good wishes.
