Default Seems like a lot of us are having a hard time...

So I just wanted to give a to all of you!

I've been on plan with food, but haven't been drinking enough water, haven't exercised and my food choices, though on plan, are not what I'd like them to be.

I'm having some other health issues, my fibro is flaring off and on a lot, my mood is out of whack with the bipolar stuff acting up for the first time since going off meds in may, I see my doc today. I think if I get some sleep i'll be able to turnt his mania train around.

I slept last night, it was fabulous! Of course I had to totally exhaust myself by working a split shift on 1.5 hours of sleep to finally get 8 hours worth. good grief.

If I'm not better by monday I'll be back on abilify. But I'm giving it time to let me work it out first. I want to be sure I've exhausted my non-med options. But my impulse control is very low. Bad sign. I'm spending WAY too much money that I just don't have to spend.

Here's one for you!

Thanks for the hugs, Lottie. I am rolling right along doing great, but a hug is always welcome!

I'm sad to hear about some of your issues flaring up. You have a difficult road with all the extra crap to deal with. But you are a very (VERY) strong lady, as you have proved over and over to yourself and all of us. I just know you can get everything sorted out and continue on this path.

Here's a big back atcha!

Thanks for the hug, and right back at ya! Let us know how it goes at the doc's. I've been a bit down lately - work is kinda crappy, and I hear you on the impulse control...I have such urges to spend money we absolutely do not have! Yesterday I had a hard time controlling my food, for the first time in a while...I made it out of the day only 50 cals over plan, but I didn't like the feeling. Anyhow it's good to know we're all here for each other!

Right back at you. I hope things get sorted out for you so that you're feeling like a new and improved you.

I'm not a huge contributer on the board, even though I've been here a squillion years. I wish I had more advice for people, but alas...I plateau a LOT, so I'm always in perma-stall mode.

I've been sick with a cold or the flu, then got my period (whee! Happy Valentine's Day, Mr. ChrissyBean!) so my energy has been at an alltime low. Even now I'd like to crawl back to bed, but I'm trying to soldier on.

best of luck to you lottie, weight loss is hard enough without having to deal with pain or mania. but hey you are still eating on plan so that is something very positive, and although you aren't happy with your food choices at least you are keeping them in check and not spiraling out of control which is soooo easy to do.

abilfy has been my sisters miracle drug, she still has some incidents, but not like before, she would go from mania ...example..walking about 12 miles in the cold rain like in november to another town to get her phone charger to depression or suicidal like going a week without a shower, or getting ahold of my moms pain meds and downing them. or just obsessing and demanding my mom buy her things she didn't need, which would be fine...if we could..but we do well to get the bills paid some months.

so good luck to you either route you take with/ or without your meds

It's true what you say! I keep pointing my finger at the snow! (And then I yell at it and demand that it melts) It is supposed to get up to 50 today... so maybe my yelling is working?

Not that snow is to blame for everything. But seriously... we got like a billion feet of snow. And when it is cold and dark and icky and I can't run outside... and it's dark when I get home from work... it just doesn't make things any easier... that is for sure.

I just keep thinking about Spring... And how I want to get my bottom in geer NOW so I can be well on my way by spring. I want to be under 200 by spring time ish (I am currently ACTUALLY up to 215 but I refuse to change my ticker) I just keep thinking about the flowers and the tulips and the crocuses that will pop up... soon... sooooon... I can make it. I can make it.... I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

You are so right...You must be a telepathic empathetic! There has been so much struggling going on right now (why???). Thanks for the hug.

And right back atcha, chica!! And for everyone,

(BTW, I found some soy cheese that I truly L-O-V-E. You inspire me to try alternatives and lo and behold I love it.)
