At least I got a lot done

I've been having some mania the last few days.  Not bad, but mania is never good.  However right now I'm controlling it fine with meds and just feel jumpy.  Which is unpleasant but there are much worse things to feel.

I had a stressful day yesterday.  I somehow popped a lens out of my only glasses when I got out of the car to go to the post office and couldn't find it.  So I spent all day trying to see well enough to read and driving with sunglasses on even when it was dark.  I did get new glasses and a replacement lens so now I have to choices of frames to pick each day.  Or at least I have a spare.  Right now I am really liking the new ones but we'll see how long until I change my mind on that.  Then I had a late appt. with Dr. Mind and didn't get home until 10:15.  So it just was a long day.  I am tired.  Really my eyes are tired but it makes me want to curl up and sleep a few weeks.

I got the rest of the details on the multiple steps leading to my getting those wrong meds; it was a number of errors by different people in different places.  But it's fixed now. I am also getting an inhaler (thank God).  I have an appointment with a pulmonologist on the 27th.  Interestingly they are starting with basic tests he'd want anyway which I love because many times you'd have to do those then come back.  And the fewer visits to doctors 2 1/2 hours away the better.

That's about it for this week so far.  Now I am just doing my no snow prayer ritual.  I don't want to be stuck in a motel tonight.  We'll see......

Well Jen, I am not sure about the "no snow" prayer ritual working this time. It's been snowing here in MN all day long and I have a feeling it may be coming your way. I hope not - at least I hope you get home before it hits hard! I have zero "no snow mojo" here for ya. Sorry!

Sounds like you are getting back on track a little? When you get this mania feeling, does it help to know that you have the tools/meds to control it? You say it's "unpleasant" - I wonder if that's a Master of Irony UNDERstatement. As usual, I am impressed with your positive attitude. "We can do this", right? Right.

Keeping you in my prayers here.
