Another day. Nothing's really changed with me ~ still in a depressive cycle that I'm trying to break. Isn't it funny how when crisis happens to someone you love you don't think about yourself much ~ you just do what you need to do. For now the situation with my Uncle is still the same and may be for awhile.Over the last 4 months he's had 3 major head traumas and 3 surgeries to his brain. It takes a long time to recover from that. Like I said, I don't think he will. They took the drain out of his head even though fluidcontinued to dripthroughit, which means now there's nowhere forit to release atso it will be building upin his skull again, wreaking more havoc.I just don't understand this neurologist.
Since we all could use a break from the situation my husband, son and I are going out withour friends and their kids to a hockey game in Orlando tonight.I have to remind myself that it's okay for me tohave fun regardless of what's going on. The onlything thatkeeps me sane is being able to laugh and enjoy myself. I haveto get away from all this a little bit. I can't keep sitting by the phone waiting for bad news ~it doesn't help anyone anyhow.
Things have been a little better for me. I may still be in depression but at least it's not a major one. I started taking my Abilify at night because it was making me sleep all the time duringtheday. I'm dropping a littleof the weight that the drughas added on tome. So all ofthat makes me happier.
I'm doing pretty well with using my Electroniccigarette ~ I'm only smoking about8-10 cigarettes a day instead of a whole pack. I'm not going to push myself any harderabout it until I feel like things are a little morestable.I've beentaking my E cig withme when we go somewhere because it prevents me fromsmoking a real cigarette and I can use it inside or outside.
I hope tonight goes well and that the kids have a goodtime andso do we.
I wish you all the best and hope you enjoy yourSaturday. 🙂
