What is it about National holidays?

Suicidal ideation

I had thoughts of suicide in July. I was googling methods. I had a plan for the 4th, but I decided against it and gave what I planned to use to my husband. I know that would have been terrible for my family to be reminded every 4th of July.

But, now it is almost Labor Day and the thoughts are coming back. I am not depressed or worried...


Good source about dogs?

Posted by confused , 24 August 2014 · 76 views

I know I saw something posted (maybe Wooster?) about things to consider/know about adopting a dog. We had a golden/lab retriever mix that we were given when she was 6 months old. She was pretty but too much for us. She was a big dog and we tried to train her, but she would jump up and some other things I couldn't control. She was mainly an outdoor dog...


Am I ready for this?

We told my daughter she could date when she is 16. She turned 16 on the 10th and last night she asked if she could date one of her classmates. He is a nice boy. Neither of them can drive yet. She said he has asked her. She doesn't know where they would go. They went to a dance last year, which seemed like a date to me, but they stayed with their friends.


I may have to rethink this

I took a course for people with a mental illness to understand more about different illnesses with the goal that we could move into working in peer support or just gain knowledge.

They opened a center like a clubhouse pretty soon after I finished the class. It is open to anyone with a diagnosis and you don't have to show anything, just sign up. Some of...


new (to me) app

Posted by confused , 18 August 2014 · 61 views

My mdoc had me sign up for follow my health, a patient portal after my recent physical. It shows your test results, appointments, you can send and receive messages. I am still getting used to it, though. I had an appt to go over my lab results and repeat them because my glucose was pretty high. I think I must have ate something when I was supposed to...


Just looking for attention?

Posted by confused , 18 August 2014 · 67 views

The talk about suicide lately reminded me of this.

I have heard after someone attempted unsuccessfully or talked about suicide that they were only looking for attention. But, when I question whether they are giving them attention now, I am looked at like I have 3 heads. Like why should I be inconvenienced because of their issue.


Getting even

Posted by confused , 15 August 2014 · 91 views

My daughter just told me a silly joke. "My therapist says I am obsessed with getting even. We'll see about that."

My pdoc approved the QYSMIA. I am going to call the clinic when they get back from lunch to make an appointment.


Weight loss

Posted by confused , 14 August 2014 · 77 views

My son is in a medically supervised weight loss program where he is weighed/evaluated monthly. He sees a dr and dietician. He is losing weight, slowly but he is growing too. I was thinking since it is working for him maybe i should try. I am not nearly as active as he is but maybe I would be more active/eat better if I had some accountability.

The dr men...


The fair

Posted by confused , 08 August 2014 · 45 views

I took my son and his friend to the fair yesterday. I was worried I would get too tired, only though it was only for a few hours, but I had some coffee on the way and did fine.

My son won a watermelon eating contest. They drew names and it was 6 little girls against him. I think the age range was 8-15. They had to use a hammer to smash the watermelo...


I get worn out easily

Posted by confused , 07 August 2014 · 72 views

My husband was going to take the kids to the fair today, but he sprained his ankle. He said I don't have to go and suggested my son try to find a friend and see if the parent will take them. I get worn out and don't do well in crowds.

My son was looking forward to going. So, I told him I would take him and a friend leaving about 4pm. My son wants to do a...
