Well, my son and I went back to the mall today to get the ring sized or exchange it for a bigger or smaller one, but they didn't have it any other size. So I exchanged it for a different ring. This one is silver and looks like Celtic rope designs. I love it! I think I like it even more than the other ring that I had originally picked out. 🙂
We also went grocery shopping today. I think it was one of our shortest trips ever. That's something to be proud of, lol. I hate going to Wal-Mart, especially on the weekends. Usually we do it Friday morning or evening because it's not so packed then. But today wasn't so bad, we didn't need as many groceries as we normally do (partially because this is Zach's last week of school and most of it is half-days anyhow) and I get pretty organized about what we need and don't need. So we got out of there pretty fast and got home.
I made dinner tonight (nothing special) and was proud of myself for that considering how damn tired I am and how slow my thinking is. I hate that I can't find words when I'm talking to people and trying to have a conversation. It makes me feel like an idiot and I just avoid trying trying as much as possible. But the weird thing is that I can write just fine. It's like the circuitry from brain to mouth just doesn't work right on these meds.
I saw my manager today and got a big hugfrom her. I told her that I was planning on returning after January 7thwhen Zachary goes back to school after Winter break. I'm feeling decent enough to be able to cashier without many problems. Working money in my head I don't have a hard time with either. It's just the talking thing that's a problem. I think I'm going to go bananas if I have to stay home much longer ~ as nice as it can be it makes me feel useless and pointless. I really need to set my days up with certain chores and such that won't wear me out completely but will satisfy the need to be useful in the household in some manner.
I think I'm going to start going to the gym classes that the local Community Center is offering. I love doing yoga and pilates (well, I love what it does for my body; I hate it while I'm doing it lol) and they're offering both during the week. I know the endorphins will help me with the depressive aspect of the illness. I'm just so tired all the time and the motivation is hard to come by to make myself go. Guess it's time to kick myself in the butt and get out the door.
It's been a fairly good day; I got out of mypajamas, made myself go to the mallwith my son and got a new ring andhe got a slushy for good behavior. I also went grocery shopping with my family and I made dinner for everyone. I hope everyone had as decent a day as I did, or better.
HUGS to all of you, and I wish you a peaceful night's sleep. ~Key
