I'm actually doing OK on the job front. Without getting too much in the nitty gritty, my company managed to renegotiate their contract with the people who make the phones I sell. In the short term, that means I get full time hours from now 'til the end of the year with them not particularly caring if I go over. I'm seriously considering asking for a ten hour shift on Black Friday.

For the long term, scuttlebutt is that full time positions are going to be created courtesy of the more generous contract and my boss has me at the top of her list!

All excellent news! So, why do I feel like the bottom is going to drop out? Not a rational thought, I know, but I can't completely shake it.

I got to play bingo for free and had a free lunch with drinks courtesy of wining one game. I had to share the pot or I would have come out $40 ahead. Iím glad I went. Was seriously thinking of not going. Just didnít feel like it and was still so tired because I stayed up late watching beastman and relic hunter. Both episodes I hadnít seen before, but oh,ÖÖso late. Why do they put all the good stuff on at 2am and nothing during the day or early evening?

People are giving me the side eye because I donít go anywhere on Sundays. Thatís my day off. I donít get dressed I often donít even put my hearing aids in. Itís my zone out day. Iím not giving it up. I need my day. The only thing I miss is having a tub to soak in for hours.

I have some strange deep red rash on my upper thigh. I just noticed it tonight after getting out of the shower. I texted a picture of it to my mom and she said it does not look fun and I should probably go to convenient care in the morning. Idk what it is. I don't think its shingles. It does feel warm. I haven't switched soaps or anything. Maybe I need bigger underwear or something

Eh if its not one thing its another. My stomach pain has remained pretty calm today. When it did act up this afternoon I managed to take a 1.5 hour nap to sleep off the pain.

My temp is 99.7. Idk if I should do something now. Like I literally just discovered this thing tonight.

Yes I used to spend hours in the tub on Sundays. Iíd drain half the water out and turn on the hot water tap to refill it to keep toasty hot. Iíd lay down so all of me was below water, I loved it. I was never scared. Except once in Texas there was some kind of bug that comes out every so many years and they get everywhere. One got into the bathroom. Fortunately my cat came in too and caught the bug,Öand ewÖ ate it. I used to roll the small tv in and lay in the tub watching tv or reading. It was the ultimate get away.

ECT helped. Iím not 100% but definitely better. Bad thing is I bit my lip during treatment. I was fine before I went in but after my lip was all swollen and now I have a horrible scab. Iíve been telling people I tripped and fell into the wall. Only my immediate family knows about the treatments, Iím afraid Iíd suffer heavy judgement if I told anyone else. ECT is misunderstood and lots of people would be surprised to know that I do it regularly. I actually decided to increase my schedule during the winter to every three weeks. That means I canít take any days off work besides my ECT days or I will run out of PTO. Oh well. Hopefully I wonít get sick.

Today is CRís birthday! Thirteen years old. We took him to the arcade with my MIL and her friend/housemate yesterday. He won 170,000 tickets! We go to this arcade bc you can trade your tickets for gift cards instead of just cheap junk. You can get cheap junk too but he likes the gift cards. Heís all hooked up for gift cards, everyone got him apple gift cards and he has about $150 now.

Iím a bit sad that heís now thirteen but Iím handling it better than I thought I would. We have to get him an ice cream cake today and weíre taking him out with my mom for lunch. I bought him a new phone a week ago so I warned him he wouldnít be getting any presents from us. He is fine with it. Now itís almost time to start getting Christmas presents. God I hate wrapping presents!

Hugs to all who are struggling!

So on Friday I did a super impulsive thing right. I went and got hair extensions. Iíll admit they look fabulous (if you saw my hair before - yuck!) BUT the amount I paid for them is shameful! Ughhh. And then thereís the maintenance. I have to have the rows pushed up every 6 weeks as my hair grows! So itís not just a one off cost either. My partner really likes them but he has no idea how much I spent and Iíll never tell him. Itís boosted my self confidence because really I had crap hair before this so thereís at least that. And I wake up with dead straight hair because the extensions have no curls in them. Iíll try uploading a picture you can let me know what you think!

I wasn't feeling too well yesterday. I went out to the asian market in the morning and got a good haul, but after that I just napped all day in bed. I had the TV on. Today I had therapy which was virtual. It went well. I just have not been 100% health wise these last 2 days because of my stomach issues that make me just want to nap all day and sleep all night. The thing on my leg is ok. I put a ton of hydrcroxine cream on it a few times and its ok now. It looked like a mess before though. I'm glad I took care of it.

And here i am, having another flicker of good feelings! I called my older sister tonight. She was out to dinner and couldn't talk but said it was nice to hear from me. I'm proud of myself because it was hard to do. She said to call tomorrow but who knows how i'll feel then. She and i are the last of my family of seven and i feel more interested in her since watching "Ozark" and seeing Ruth lose HER whole family.

I've been feeling down since i let the party pass on Saturday without attending. Just sad that i don't enjoy parties when people generally regard them as fun. I did make a gesture as the party was in the building and i feel warmly towards the birthday girl since she did some peer support for me last year when my younger sister died. Before the party i brought my dog down to see her as i thought she would like to meet my dog as she says she loves dogs. But she didn't even pet my dog. I was disappointed. She might have been concerned about her outfit, which was a lovely, simply-cut, sleeveless, sequined shift-dress in powder blue, very flattering. She really went all out! At least i wished her a happy birthday. It would have been kind of remiss not to at least put in an appearance as the party was just an elevator ride away.

Well, i does what i can!

I've got an appointment on Thursday with my doctor to discuss my depression. I really think the thing to do is REDUCE my meds, at least my Seroquel and then my Risperdal. I'm feeling over-sedated and have the munchies something fierce. Last time i talked to him in this state, he wanted to INCREASE my meds. That's not appealing. Hopefully we can work something out.
