Happy New Year!!! I do hope that 2015 is a great year for all of us!!!
My goal is to work on anxiety. I am not saying that I am getting off my medication and will be able to control it all by my little onesy. No, no, no, I am saying that the part that I can control, I am going to work on controlling better. I am not going to try to get off my meds at this point. Without them, I would be a wreck and well I know it because when I lost the music store in August 2008, I literally, overnight had to stop most of my medicine due to no prescription coverage and that meant no anxiety medicine. I survived until right after my mother died. At that point, I was a mess, a complete and utter mess. I went to see my doctor and he prescribed me my medicine. He was floored that I stopped cold turkey and didn't tell him. He is such a caring doctor. He said I need to speak to him about these things because there are things we can do to help. Well, I didn't know and at the time, I was so depressed I couldn't think. I just couldn't. I know better now.
Christmas Eve and Day were wonderful. I spent them with Kathy and her family at her parents place. It was so lovely. I really enjoyed myself. The kids loved what they got and I got 2 gift certificates that I loved. It was awesome.
I was very wiped out between Christmas and New Year's. I slept quite a bit because of it. I think I had just pushed myself too much for the holiday getting everything done.
New Year's Eve, we had friends over and it was great fun. We played games and I managed to stay up until midnight. Of course, I was exhausted on New Year's Day but Peony and I took a nap and that took care of that.
Since then, I have been battling major fatigue again. I am not sure if it is because of the cold or what. I have had to give up caffeine as it adds to my stomach issues so I don't know if that is part of the problem or not. I no longer drink caffeinated drinks unless I am out and forget to order milk, which is what I prefer with a meal anyway but sometimes I forget. I still get an upset stomach every night even with the giving up of foods that cause acid so I am not sure what will happen when I see my tummy doctor next week. Perhaps we will be looking at my gallbladder? I just don't know. It is very hard to say.
Anyways, it has been a nice weekend. Kathy celebrated her birthday yesterday by not going out. I called to wish her happy birthday. It was very cold yesterday. We are in January and well, January can get rather chilly here. Stay warm!
