On A Brighter Note




I got a new car today.  It is a 2002 Mercedes E55.  I just love it.  I had to get a new car because the car I was driving was totaled.  I was driving down a residential street and some guy was backing out of the driveway and hit into me.  He caused more damage than the car was worth.  It was a 1999 and had over 200,000 miles on it.  So here's to happy driving.


UPDATE:  I am feeling better but still feel a have a way to go yet.  I will be attending a support group starting on Tuesday.  I think it will help.

2 Steps Forward And 3 Steps Back


I am not in a very good place tonight and I apologize to all of you but I need to blog about this.  There are just good days and bad days.  This is my bad day.  These two pictures really sum it up.  I have written a note to my doctor.  I hope I am not scaring everyone away.  I hope that you will lend me your support and understanding.  I feel there is a great bond between bloggers.  Thanks for listening and for being supportive.  Better days are ahead.

Making Progress


Well, I think I am coming around some.  I went and saw a NP last Wednesday to talk about my medication.  It went well.  She also seemed to know  about Fragile  X too which was good.  She increased the dosage of one medication that I take.  Can't tell too much if it is helping yet but I am sure I will notice something soon.  I just feel the side effect of being dizzy right now.  I go back in April for a follow up with her.

I am feeling somewhat better about work.  A lot of stuff is coming from there.  I am just trying to pace myself and not get so frustrated with myself and to be calmer.  It is working pretty well.  I have talked some to my principal about it.  He seems to be understanding.  He stopped by my room on Friday to see how I was.

I am also trying to be more open with my husband about how I feel.  That is going well and he really is understanding about it all.

I go and see my therapist sometime in March.  Wish it could have been sooner but I can contact him through phone or email if need be.  I haven't yet but I am thinking I might send him a few of my thoughts.

Thanks to all for being supportive and your wonderful comments.  God really does work if you let him.

Found Out I Am Human Today And It Is Okay


My doctor appointment went well.  He was very nice.  Also a dear friend of mine went with me and that sure helped.  I have an appointment for a medicine evaluation next week and I see this doctor I saw today in a month. 

I need to not put so high of standards on myself.  It is okay that I am not perfect.  No one else is.
I know that God and my good friends will help me through this.  I have got to kick depression in the butt.

Something A Little Cheerful



I decided to write about something cheerful today.  I have really been in a slump lately.  Too many things pulling at me and my heart.  I do have an appointment on Wed.  to see a doctor.  Hopefully that will help.

Yesterday I took the day off of work.  It was good.  I slept in, went to lunch with some friends and got a manicure.  It was all wonderful.  I felt more renewed as I went back to work today.

The little boy in my class that I have been having difficulties with was really good today.  He was in a good mood and did what he was suppose to do.  (tender mercies)

I only have one more day to work and then I am off for a week for the President's holiday.  I am planning on doing things with friends that week.

To night Tom and I are going to a college basketball game.  We are meeting his son and his family there.  Should be a good time.  Hope our team wins.
