Bite Me, Tom

I've been feeling better the past few days. Thanks for all the sweet comments that were posted here. It really means a lot to me! How wonderful is this whole Internet thing that people from all over who have never met can learn and care about another person? That's just so cool.

I hung out at Recollections down here for two days. One day I worked on some pages for a client, the other I tried to work on pages but really kinda just goofed off. I needed that though. My friend and I also went shopping at Nordstrom Rack. I am in no position to buy anything, and I didn't buy anything, but it was fun to try things on and know that I had my Nordstrom's card in my purse in case I did want something really really badly and it was too smoking of a deal to pass up. I was good though.

Today, I worked. (See this

    I really like her store, and she is so nice, and so are all the girls I have met there so far. I am also going to get to start teaching again, which will be nice.

    I am planning on making a doctor's appointment next week when I am not so cash poor, and I will see about getting my meds adjusted and/or changed. It's so hard sometimes when you are only seeing things from your own perspective, and you start to wonder, am I a headcase? Am I imagining this? Should I really be okay and I am just making my own trouble? It's good to hear reassurance from others who have gone through the same thing.

    And for the record Tom, YES, I am taking my vitamins, EVERY DAY! I take them at the same time as my Paxil, ha ha ha!

    you have no idea how thrilled i am to see this post. i was so worried about you. i was telling Zee to check your blog cuz i was so worried.

    i want you to know that i am on Paxil as well and while it takes care of my panic attacks it did nothing for my ups & downs. i had to add an "additional" medication rather than change the Paxil. ask about Lamictal. it has helped a ton. i was sleeping way too much, couldn't concentrate, was irritable, and had no motivation to do anything. i would cancel appointments in my downs that i had made in my ups. i didn't take care of myself or my house.

    you will get through this. going to the scrap store and/or working at one will help a lot. your creativity is amazing and it will make you feel good to accomplish something.

    btw, i have itching issues with my dog, too. she would make sores under her arms and on her chin. i got a spray at the vet that was like steroids and stopped the itch while it healed the area. instantly she would stop scratching. i think i saw at the pet store the same kind of spray on an OTC level. look for it by the ear wax products and stuff.

    I think it is wonderful about the internet too. You meet so many nice people(well we hope they are nice) and you just form a friendship through your computer.
    I hope you are having a great day!
