Blood work, my meter showed fasting of 111 and after breakfast and before lunch it was 110.


Dinner is still my problem. I was going to get the blood drawn at 10 AM, but when I checked it around 6 it was already low. I couldn’t wait that long to eat so went at 7 AM instead.

I am hoping for a better report.

I walked over 1500 steps so far. Supposed to go walking with my grade school friend tomorrow. My goal is currently set at 1500 steps. Will have to raise it soon.

I had breakfast of eggs and sausage and a few potatoes. Lunch was a low carb shake and dinner was about 2 tacos. Still have my bedtime snack.

Withdrawal, snow and pain


Bipolar and ex-husbands


Still raising hell!


My phone order should be fixed now.

I wrote another letter to my ex-husband asking for forgiveness for the last letter and to tell him that I finally have come to peace with what happened when we were teenagers and hope he can forgive me.

I read it twice and I think it is ok and shouldn’t cause problems like last time. Hopefully it isn’t the weaning off of the psychiatric medicine that caused me to write another letter. I hope he responds to me and not the children.

I can’t sleep. Too riled up.

Here I am, typing again. Bad week!


Well friends at the moment I must type again. My cellphone, which I was using to upload videos took a nosedive. Barely works so I decided to try a webcam. Had the buttons to connect to YouTube, but found out in support they no longer support YouTube or any other social media. I took it back to the store. I don’t skype so it was no good to me.

My printer was going. Got a new one and it wouldn’t hook up, so I took it back to the store and got another one and this one is working.

I am just totally done. My back is in severe pain and the headaches terrible. Still withdrawing from the second medicine. She is drawing this one out since it is a cut-table pill.

And either tomorrow or the next day I will have a new iPhone. It is pretty useless right now. I got unlimited everything including data. I am going to start using my¬† new phone to do things since when my son and I have to find a place to live we won’t be able to afford cable. I will use my phone for netflix, wordpress, facebook, etc. I need to learn how to use the calendar and other necessities I normally do with the computer or a calendar.

Still have my channel and will try again with the new cell phone though have to be more careful and keep the storage free. I used up all the storage and taking things off doesn’t help. Keeps disconnecting me and the buttons are sticking.

Withdrawal, Dentist and Life in General


Hi friends, miss you guys. Withdrawal and a serious dental problem at the same time has been a lot of fun, NOT! My pain level is a 15 out of 1/10. I am just finally starting to feel better and the pain level is coming down. I am able to eat things that aren’t completely soft finally.

Been thinking about my ex-husband and our lives and think I have finally forgiven us both for the disaster of the marriage. The Lord boomed it out to me in my room and flustered me at first. VENGEANCE IS MINE, SAYETH THE LORD!!

It is not my job to punish either of us for what happened. Problem now is that I find myself wanting my marriage back. Not sure how real that is. I just might be lonely as my son has suggested. AND there has been no indication the ex wants to start over so it is mainly in my head right now. Besides we can’t go back to when things were better. I enjoyed having babies and being a military wife.

Still have pills to withdraw from. Be around when I can.
