Ping backs don’t work for me.


I was just reading a site that said only WordPress blogs give ping backs. Mine used to a long time ago, but now my blogs are both using their own domains. So now I know why I can no longer do a pingback.

Therapy


I needed a ride to therapy today since I lent my car to my son since his is in the shop and he had to go to work.

I write a thorough journal for her to read and it is exactly how I am feeling. Makes our sessions better.

My fasting sugar was 348 when I got up. Expected it to be high, but not quite that high. Endocrinologist has me on very little medicine and it didn’t work when my PCP put me on it and it doesn’t work now, plus he eliminated one.

New antidepressant is not letting me sleep, but she just told me to stay on it. She wants me on it for a few weeks, at least 2 weeks. She is expecting it to change and it is making me somewhat suicidal in thoughts. I don’t care if the world ends tomorrow.

I hate the fact that I have lost my major interest in my blogs. I would rather sleep (like that is happening with this new antidepressant). It is hard to build a blog when you have lost interest. I remember my thrill in the beginning. This one is over 2 years old. My writing blog is over several years older.

Me oh My, wheezing now


I just can’t win. I am wheezing pretty bad and the inhaler is only giving me mild relief. This started yesterday and I was just at the drs on Friday, the pulmonary doctor, and he said my lungs were clear. Stopping the BiPap machine. Not working.

I couldn’t sleep last night. New antidepressant is supposed to be a sedative for most people. I should have known this would happen. I react the opposite to most medications. Still too early to try and see if it will help the Bipolar Depression.

I forgot to check my blood sugars this morning. They are high daily now since he didn’t try a new medication. I am on the same old oral meds that didn’t work before and he took one away.

Lousy Memorial Day – rainy, dark and chilly.

We didn’t go to the township’s barbeque that they hold free every Memorial Day.

Finally able to eat and retain the food.


I am finally able to eat and no pain or other problems from the food. I still don’t know what happened. Just glad it is seemingly over.
