This And That

Spent a few hours in ER early this morning with Alice. Seems she was having severe back spasms. I'm am really tired but am glad she is okay.

Yesterday was a very busy day. We had so much to do. I saw my psychiatrist who explained that I am a brittle bi polar. This helps explain my struggles for the past few weeks. He  explained that the chemicals in my brain causes the symptoms and assured me it was nothing to be ashamed about. I feel so weak at times and feel I should be stronger.  I just expect so much of myself.

I took my car in for a much needed oil change and the found some problems going on with the car.. Seems like that car is just causing a lot of problems recently. I guess that can be expected of an older car.

I found out yesterday my brother's house burned to the ground. They lost  their dogs and cats in the fire. They were very lucky to get out. It was a total lost but they where insured. Their car also blew up.  I am just so thankful they are okay. It just make you realize how much we have to be thankful for.

We went to church Sunday and it was good to be there. The pastor was out of town moving his mother to Tulsa. I guess that means they are here to stay a while.

It's Valentines day and we are planing a quiet day, I am not sure what's for dinner yet but I'm sure it will be simple.

Good to hear from you. Who likes ER trips but sometimes, that's our last resort. Hope your daughter is feeling better now. Spasms are no fun and I had more hurtful ones back in January. May God's love always remind you of His presence. You are not alone sister.

I'm very sorry for Alice and your brother. My stupid car died, but that's nothing compared to what they're going through. :-(

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear Alice is having back spasms. I've never experienced them, but I've been told they are terribly painful, so my sympathy and thoughts go out to her.

I had never heard the term before, so I looked up what "brittle bipolar" meant. It must be scary to be prone to relapses and quickly fluctuating symptoms. But your psychiatrist is right-- what's going on is chemical and not your fault. You are not weak! You are one of the strongest people I know (and I mean that honestly).

The fact that your brother's house burnt down is just awful. I don't know how I would cope with losing my dog. She is the absolute love of my life, and sometimes when I have intrusive thoughts of her getting hurt or killed I bawl. My thoughts also go out to him. But luckily he has an incredible sister who I'm sure offers her unending emotional support.

Be well,
NOS
