Hi fellow Bipolar Bear.

I see you work with kids.
I'm a substitute teacher so I work with kids too.
I don't make much money but I have flex time which is really good.

I can work much as I want and take time off when I get those little "red flags" fly up.

I'm married for 23 years. Husband retired Navy.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Seems that most would prefer not to have had mental problems ~ that's my view too. Hope you're doing well & you are in control of your life & are happy. Good Luck!

Belated thanks for your comment on my BP question. Hope you are feeling well. I'm doing fine,am awaiting a Psych evaluation to see what's what with my condition re BP. Being manic's part of my personality, I like the buzz from it, but it does make me do some foolish things ~ acting on impulse without much thought's one aspect. If I see something I like I go after it, ignoring any remaining common sense I have, only to find that I've no need of whatever it is & already have it or similar things. Books ~ can't resist them, am very selective, but continue to buy them in spite of not having read all those I already have. Have learned to live with this 'mental illness' thing now, but I'm getting some enjoyment back in life again. Instead of being hospitalised am being treated at home. Good Luck

You deserve a big bear hug! Lizz, I hope they find out what is goin on.U have ben so tired 4 so long & it sounds more lik a physical problem.I think I remember u said they checked ur blood, etc. If they hav not found anythin.I think I would get a second opinion.To stay as tired as you are is not normal.You may have a loss of blood somewhere and not know it.It could be many things.Really they should put you in the hospital and check you from head to toe.What is your dr telling you? Do you feel rested after you sleep or are you tired when you wake up?Make a list of symptoms that has been going on with you to take with you to the dr.,any changes that you have noticed to the shine of your hair. Then, try a second opinion for a new approach to find the problem.Hope you feel better soon.RJ

I think I just put my age on my profile recently. I am often mistaken for being younger. I went to my first book club meeting the beginning of the month. It is just once a month. I enjoyed the one and am looking forward to the next one. Don't worry about not being in a place mentally/emotionally to be sociable. I get there sometimes, too. Sorry to hear you've been down.

Just stopped by to say a quick hello.  Your latest (?) photo is very cute and I'm impressed with your very organized bookcase.  I've posted a few times over the past couple of days and wondered how you're doing.

You deserve a big bear hug! Good to hear from you and I am glad you are feeling better.Hope that med works good for you.Sleeping and the body not getting the rest from it, has to be hard on you.It is as bad as not sleeping at all, except you get to shut your eyes.I'm hanging in there.Think I am going to have to get those shots in my back again.I have had some real problems with it.Kinda gotten used to it though. I have really been in a rotten mood lately.I guess it is my low end of the bi-pole.I slid off the middle of the pole! Take Care RJ

Thinking about you! You are still staying tired and sleeping?My son seems to not be getting any rest when he sleeps either.We talked about it and I thought of  you.I asked him if he felt rested when he got out of bed. He said no.I was like that for a long time and I described it to my regular d as overtired.I think it was my thyroid.But then I went on thyroid meds and that was atleast 3 yrs ago.Then had the 4 hour sleep thing.You probably are not getting the deep sleep you need that rests your body.Didn't you do some test's to try to find out what it was? Hope you feel better. RJ

You deserve a big bear hug!  If you want to PM me please do, we can talk about anything/everything/nothing, whatever you need.  It's a hard time of year and probably isn't helping.  May also be that the meds aren't the right ones for you?  I'm here for you.  Hugs xxxx

Liz, I was readin your write ups c u r still depressed,sleeping, u stay tired.I used 2 tell dr I was over tired all the time.I new sumthin was wrong.found I had hypothyroidism.I think that had a lot 2 do with it.It affected my hormones,along with age hormone problems.I still get tired, but I take enough meds 4 a horse, so I account my tiredness 2 pain meds,along with meds I take for bp& everythin else in the world.Walkin drugstore! Have 2 tak a pill 2 go 2 sleep. Did u say sumtime bac u have a thyroid problem also?The work out u do everyday usually gives a person more energy.Have u checked with a med.dr 2 c what it may be? U have ben this way 4 long time.Iron defiency can cause tiredness also.Let me know how u r. RJ

Had to send you a big smile.I see you have went out and worked out.That is great.My daughter always told me that she had more energy when she exercised.The sleeping thing could be from lack of vitamins.Maybe you should try a good multi-vitamin.I have been sleeping a lot too.I have been on constant pain meds,muscle relaxers,antiflamatory,even med for restless leg syndrome, besides my psyc meds.My injections in my back has worn off and I am in pain land.Been in bed for about 3 days. I go back to dr 16th, but I may call and see if they can do the injections earlier. Got up for a while tonite, so thought I'd check out how everyone is doing here. Take care,and keep up the good work. RJ

Thinking about You.I see your mood says still sleepin.That's ok.If you need it,do it.I hav been the same way lately.As long as you are doing well in other areas,don't worry about it.Just take it easy.Life here is in a real uproar and I am more out of whack than usual.I shopped and shopped for Christmas and now I just don't care about the tree or anything.I had my son put in the hospital for psyc care.It is a long story and a bad one.He just hit the max of what he could handle.I hope you are in the Christmas Spirit.I imagine it is very enlightening with the children at this time of the year. I was going to one store and saw the traffic.I went home instead.Places are mobbed,but the people I have seen have been very nice,not like I have seen in the past years.Take care,have fun & kep n tuch.

Hi, so far its alright, not going to be a big  Christmas for us this year, since we (my family) are all on tight budget. So what we are doing is a secret santa, meaning I'm  only getting one gift for one person. It's strange because I'm so used to overspending on my family and friends but this year I'm trying to conrol that, last year I spent over $800.00 on gifts for famiy and friends. went a bit overboard last year lol. It's hard not to spend too much money tho. But kinda depressing because I know I don't have any money to spend. It just a reminder of how lame and useless my life is.

Yah I've been so tired lately too, not sure why, may be the new meds im on, who knows. but it also could be cuz my dog has taken to waking me up at 6am every morning lately.

hope ya have a great hoilday

Happy Holidays! Thanks for the compliment. It's hard to fight how America (Australia, whatever) is telling you to feel and what you simply MUST do. I have it easier that way in that we do not have television so we're not bombarded with commercialism. Think how much more peaceful that is.

Thanks Lizz, I've not been on as much lately (organizin/Christmas Shopping(2 days in a row! Still have few things left 2 get).Yes,I can talk,get air instead of words,especially if talk lot.I'm with u on Seroquel.Helps me a lot.I don't have racin thoughts sinc went on Lamictal&Zoloft.It was drivin me nuts.I couldn't handle it.I lost control of thougts.Stay much calmer on Seroquel.No sleep was bad.Gives restful sleep.Sumtimes wait 2 late 2 tak,then don't slep well.I get exhausted easy also.I'm soon 59,so gues age 2 start slowin down!! Glad ur doin betr.Get ur rest.Sumtimes body says it needs rest,wether we think so or not.This time of yr,need 2 kep resistance up for flus,etc.Tak care&keep n touch.

Lizz, I have met the Monster he is living in my bedroom. He thinks he is staying, but I will get to him. I went to the dr today about my voice box. He said he didn't see any paralyzes or the bone broken. Good news. I am going to another dr that he referred me to that does some kind of imaging on a computer. Hopefully they will get it fixed. How are you doing? Are you getting enough rest and doing any better with the depression. You are taking Seroquel aren't you? Has it helped you much? How long have you been taking it? I started it, I think it has been about 2 weeks. It has helped my sleeping/restful. It also has help with my sadness/depression. The dr thinks depression, I think sadness. Anyway, I feel better. Keep n touch. RJ

Hey Lizz, did you find that water bowl? I have been looking for the food dish and my nose is clogged!! That was an unusual study picking the beagles.Many years ago we had beagles.Very good dogs for pets as well as hunting. How are you doing? You got me in the mood to reorganize.I don't have much cabinet and closet space.Got my den finished including desk with files/old out new in.It has taken me 3 days to finish it.I make a terrible mess cleaning.I never know how much mess I have until I start pulling it out and trying to condense.I am t-i-r-e-d. Kitchen won't be too bad, but the bedroom with clothes, blankets,etc. will be a terror, but I pretty much figured out what I am going to do. Did you know clothes grow? Take care and keep in touch. RJ
