It is a delight to be the spouse of a hard working, joy-filled, dedicated man.

Still Tripping

Can't wait to get off this stuff. I do not see how other people can take it. I am glad I checked out what the side effects are because I would have thought I had gone crazy. Bipolar to be exact.

Mania. Wow. Thoughts are racing. And they are not all good or interesting or funny. But my house is getting pretty clean.

I thought it would be better when my dose lowered but I'm on just a third of the original dose and I am still wired, rubber band tight. The gut issue is not as bad. Ya woo, now I can also apply the mania to eating. That oughta look sweet!

I think it is a funny thing about me, when I have a reason, like surgery, to take a a sedative or even anesthesia it takes triple doses to knock me out. But give me something that might wire people out or give them borderline psychotic episodes and watch out Tasmanian Devil here I come. But I can drink coffee all evening long and still fall asleep just fine and rarely have I drunk so much coffee as to get "jittery".

Well I am tanked up on Sleepy Time tea and extra Valerian and I am going off to bed. I can't really think a straight line anyway. Even a Lanny straight line, which as we all know is no straight line for sure.

So I am off to bed. Tomorrow I am going to expend my mania on driving and shopping and planning the rest of my life. (Phil's nervous but I think I can do this and not veer from the shopping list. Although I have had knocking out walls and major painting projects running through my brain but the girls are babysitting me tomorrow.)

Wednesday, I hope to be normal, okay, my normal, and back here with something funny or compelling to talk about. My fond desire is to never blog about my health again but unfortunately I've arrived at that age haven't I?

Glad to see you're getting better. Silence is not you, nor were you quite yourself the other day.

We get some minus -10 to -20F with blowing snow, and we already have plenty of that, the next couple days. Not looking forward to that.

You hope to be back and blogging about something funny ? I think this post IS funny, and glad to hear the girls are babysitting you.

Wow - nothing wires me up much so I'm terribly impressed with the level of physical activity you have achieved! Glad your girls will be around to protect you from your own projectmania. I agree with Kathy - you are pretty funny in this state - I used to say the state I was in - had seceded from the union a long time ago!

BTW if you have arrived at that age (talking about health issues) there is no hope for me - I'm a bit older and does seem to be patch patch, smooth over and compensate is becoming my normal.Oh well when this body is worn out - I get a wonderful new one!

I'm late in reading this. Trying to get caught up with everyone. I hope you are feeling better by now.
