I may have to rethink this

Posted by confused , 21 August 2014 · 26 views

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 · 49 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 · 51 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 · 82 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 · 68 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 · 43 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 · 68 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...


First World Problems

Posted by confused , 05 August 2014 · 66 views

Weird Al has a song about First World Problems on his new album. My son has the CD and has downloaded it on his iPod. We were listening to the song and when he realized it was the cd playing he complained that he had his ipod on for no reason, then we both looked at each other and said "that's a first world problem".

I got in touch with a friend from hig...

I gave a presentation on my experience with mental illness for a bipolar and depression organization. There weren't many people, about 20, I was expecting twice that. The lady I was with rambled but I am pretty concise so I think we were a good combo. If I talked more we would have gone over time.

I had mentioned my dx and afterwards this woman who also...


Growing old

Posted by confused , 29 July 2014 · 42 views

I don't call my parents regularly, but I do call them sometimes. I talked to my dad the other day. He was talking about how difficult it is growing old and dying. He is 81. He is blind from macular degeneration. He has some peripheral vision, but likes to be in familiar surroundings. He knows where everything is at home. He said he isn't in pain.
