Thinking about a dry November....

Tuesday, November 03, 2015

I did make it to the gym last night.
Some how it feels indulgent. I watched tv while there which I don't do at home. Walked 40 minutes about 2.2 miles at 3.5 mph. felt good.
I think my hypomania has subsided.
I feel like the happy feelings have disappeared.
I got up early today to make chilli. We are having some friends over for dinner.
Will see if the social anxiety comes back...I hope not. That was the best thing about the hypomania was not being anxious around people. I wish I could bottle that up.
We will have chilli with black beans and beef, and Onions and peppers
with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and sour cream on the side.
half an avocado
corn muffins
they are bringing some fruit.
they will be here for 6pm.
I am on my 3 cup of coffee....
already called my client this morning to let her know that I will be there late, some time between 10 and 10;30. I want plenty of time to shower and curl my hair. I have looked pretty haggard these past few days. It has been that time of the month which I hate.......can't wait to be done with perimenopause!
I got caught up with charting last night, it was hard focusing, absent mindedly, I even thru some stamps away but retrieved them out of the trash quickly realizing what I did.
I found out that one of my clients passed away on halloween. She was 98 years old and I loved her.
She was a nurse during WWII.
I just called her daughter and spoke with her. The obit will be in the paper tomorrow for the arrangements. I hope to go to the calling.
Thank you for reading and for your support.

    sorry haven't had much of a chance to keep in touch .. darn computer troubles as well as life got a little scrambled ..
    Deep breaths dear friend .. breathing deeply keeps you present and strong .. I'm so proud of you and your accomplishments with meds, exercise and your streak of self care .. that is the best gift you can give yourself is to take the best care of you that you can.
    I admire you in your occupation .. not the easiest on the heart and soul hon .. so make sure you stay strong as you tend to those dear souls that rely on your talents and skills to make their lives brighter and healthier ... I would have loved to have heard the stories that your dear lady would have told you about the war and being a nurse during such a horrific time .. little nuggets of gold .. little gems just for you .. no wonder your heart got involved with your charge ..
    Happy Tuesday my dear .. this a week after your posted blog so by now I'm sure you were able to attend the celebration of this dear woman's life.. I trust her send off was fantastic ..
    Huge hugs my dear .. I had better get to work .. D

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend and client...it sounds as if she had a very interesting life! She was fortunate to you there for her.

    It's too bad you can't have the happy feelings of the hypomania and the reduced social anxiety without the negative effects, too. Does the change of seasons affect you? It's a bad time of year for a lot of people.

    I was very glad to just whiz through perimenopause!

    Enjoy your dinner with friends!
