Justa putting one foot in front of the other right now!

I continue to feel somewhat down.

I don't want to belabor the point but my Abilify experiment is not working. My taking it every other day at a half dose is still grogging me out during the day. My moods are swinging back and forth on a daily basis and the "Foggy" feeling is around all the time now. I don't feel like I'm having any times of clarity. I understand from my wife that a name of a Psychiatrist has been submitted to the insurance company for me to go see in Oswego Ny. I'll let you know how that goes when and if I start seeing him. I feel like I'm going to need to switch medicines. For those of you doing the medicine game how many different ones have you taken over time to get to where you are now?


The Lime Green Drama Queen is over for the night

We were so busy last night that she and I didn't even have the time or the inclination to do a post together like we have in the past. After picking her up from her house yesterday at 3:00 pm. We came back to our house and did her homework. By time we warmed up some Goulash for dinner and tossed together a salad it was time to take off for her Concert at 7:30. She plays the Clarinet in her school's band. She, to say the least is less than excited to be playing the instrument. She says she wants to quit playing but her dad won't let her yet. We'll see where that goes. The band sounded good from where I was sitting. As you can tell from this picture Courtney's a looker. Watch out Dad there are going to be a line of guys beating down your door for a date with your daughter when she gets older. Court Court as she likes to call her self is a little down right now. Maybe it is something in the air. A lot of people seem to be down right now.

Speaking of being down

Billary must be feeling a little down right now after her whoopin in North Carolina. She won by a slim margin in Indiana and vows to continue on. Rush Limbaugh will be happy. The Chaos that is the Dumocratic primaries rolls on. This battle for the parties nomination is helping deflect the scrutiny that would be dumped on McCain right now. I don't really care which one of the two of them win. Barrack or Billary. They are pretty much non choices for me. I would have to choose none of the above if they were my only choice in the election. That's just me. Others of you may have your opinions. If you feel like sharing them feel free to comment below.

I'm going to keep it short this morning.

Thanks for the comment Mark, hope you are feeling little better, but I find writing very therapeutic so it's good that you found the strength to post even if it's a few paragraphs it's good to keep your mind occupied.

Hola My Dear Mr. Krusen,
I can tell you are still not doing all that great even though I haven't had time to get over here and read you, because I haven't received any smart comments on my postings. I'm so sorry to hear it.

Re: how many meds did I take to get where I am now which is slightly better than just barely head above water. Too many too count, but I'll try. Hang on. Seems like just a few more than I can count on the fingers of both hands, not including those I am taking now. Currently, I am popping three different drugs to keep head above, and since adding Abilify to the other two I'm doing much better. It takes a long time, several med changes and sometimes switches of doctors for many people. keep on putting one foot in front of the other and don't give up!! I and your family would miss you greatly.

On another note, where the heck is Stan. Who does he think he is keeping us in the dark during such a long dark period. Could he be running from his blog buddy? I hope I'm not the cause of all this missingness. Forgive me, lol. I tend to think everything is about me, lol, lol.

Precious Rock, Thanks for checking up on me. I know I have a long road ahead to get set on meds. I'm getting closer to getting a shrink so I will be on the medicine merry go round soon I'm sure.

I'm sure Stan will return so. I hope so any way. I miss his long rambling comments. LOL.
