I had a New Year's Eve party, a pajama party for my friends (so everyone could just go home and pass out) since Jack didn't come here; I got way too drunk and went completely manic....I was so bad my friends thought I was on speed faint I wasn't, just really drunk and manic. I was so upset that Jack didn't come up....and I got way to drunk, I was manic for 4 days, now I am sick and in so much pain from it, why oh why do I do this to myself? cry Jack came up on Thursday morning and I was still manic and somewhat drunk, I was manic for 3 more days, then I went to depressed. He took me back down to Phoenix with him and brought me back up on Sunday. I did my best to explain what was going on and I think he understands, but I haven't heard from him since. sob I think I totally screwed up! I HATE THIS STUPID DISORDER cry stamp

Yes he knows, but I don't think he gets the whole thing, he hasn't seen me full out manic before, I was toned down by the time he got here on Thursday, then I just flat out slept from Sat on, he did all of my laundry and took care of me and said he understood, but you know how it is, I take everything wrong, and am paranoid about how he thinks of me....at least he didn't see me on Mon, Tues, or Wed. he would probably run for the hills and never come back. There is more to this, but I'll get into it later...I am feeling really insecure right now sob

group hug Terry I'm glad everything is alright with Jack. Bipolar does things to your emotions too, like being way too sensitive.

I know, it's just with all of these med changes, I hardly recognize myself sometimes! And then I'm sure what I am feeling is from the meds, the bipolar, or me and if they are going to last any length of time. I am having more seizures and loosing time again and forgetting so much again.. cry stamp the whole thing is making me crazy, And that terrible burning is back in my head again bang head like an acid burn on the brain.....I am just so tired of the med changes with no positive results and I feel like I am just getting worse and worse since the last med, the side effects haven't totally gone away yet and they should have by now sob

I have to tell you all something here, the new med for the arthritis, it makes me really tired and kinda spacey and goofy plus it makes me dizzy; these effects are suppose to wear off in a few weeks. I started taking the med on Saturday, while at Jacks. By Sunday, I was like someone who had been smoking wacky weed non stop for about a month. Then Jack sets me down (more or less) and says that he thinks he should put his house hold of stuff in storage for a few months and stay with me to see if he can really deal with the commute of an hour twice a day to work and back, and also to see how well we really do "living together" full time. Then in a few months he will know whether to look for a permanent place here or in Phoenix, and also we will have a better idea of how my plan for disability will be going. Now, mind you this has been mentioned in passing, but being the doubting and ever so questioning and not so trusting person I am, well faint faint faint I didn't think he was meaning NOW.
I am not at all unhappy about this, I am in SHOCK eek Um, I have a 539 sq ft one bedroom apt. with a furry diety - this is one more example of getting what you ask for isn't it? tongue I am just about now getting it! yahoo banana

I am getting more used to the idea and feeling much better about it, it was just a shock, you know, someone who was actually sincere? He is bringing his son Casey up this weekend so we can see how well it goes with him there; he has downs syndrome and is so sweet and such a good kid, I don't foresee any problems, but best to find out first. We will be having him there every other weekend and I hope to use that time to get him away from only playing viedo games and outside! big grin I have already added 4 new items to his very limited diet, so lets see how much more I can add to his very sheltered world! I mean this in a very good and loving way. I mean, heck I live out in the sticks, there is plenty for a 13 year old kid to find out side to do isn't there? Maybe there was a reason I majored in education hmmm Anyway, I am really getting excited about it, I for real now quitting smoking! thumbs up Jack and Casey both have lung problems. So I need some of that old Hugz good thoughts and prayers here please??
