Hello my friends. Today is turning out to be a decent day, although a weird one. I feel pretty good, just tired as usual due to medications.
I've had 3 days of doctors' visits in a row. This is day 3 but it got cancelled; so no appointment with my psychiatrist even though I drove all the wayup there and wasted 1/4 tank of gas (grrrrr!). But they did give me an "emergency" appointment with another doctor early next week. Maybe he'll take me off the Abilify and give me something else.
I also talked to my Aunt this morning and she seems to being doing okay, which is relieving. I got her to laugh some and we talked for an hour. My Mom is right ~ now that my Uncle's gone she's becoming a somewhat normal person again. Amazing the things that stress can make you become.
Yesterday I saw my regular doctor for my 6 month check-up. I'm proud to say everything looked really good (except my weight). I managed to turn my cholesterol around so that I won't need medications, brought my fasting sugar levels down and I don't have to go back until July for my next check-up.
After my doctor's appointment I went to a second-hand bike shop that repairs used bikes and sells them. I got a bike worth $140 new for $89 instead. I'm proud of myself for that. So now I can go on bike rides in the morning after I drop Zachary off at school. It will still be cool out so it should be enjoyable for me. I always did enjoy bicycling. Except when you eat dirt, which I did yesterday, lol. I'm okay, just a little scraped up. I'm still used to my old bike'sturning radius and ended up with a few scrapes and bruises. I'll live, I think.
I cried a little on the way home today thinking about my Uncle, but slowly it's getting better. I saw a poor kitty that had gotten killed on the road and that was it ~ I just started crying. I guess that's what's called a"sympathy cry" from a book I'm reading about bipolar.
Anyhow, I've got some chores to get done so I need to get to them. I hope everyone has a pleasant day.
