We (the munchkin and I) have been going at it non-stop today. I woke him up this morning to drag him with me to have my blood sugar tested, and then to my first appointment with my new psychologist. First of all, the blood tests are all part of trying to figure out why I'm still battling exhaustion and crankiness. Maybe it's not bipolar after all. But then, is it just me? That's what we're exploring. And I've finally found a psychologist and psychiatrist willing to work with my regular doctor as a team to help me through this.
The funniest part of my appointment was when my psychologist recommended I buy a Palm Pilot to help me stay organized and to help my memory. I'm having some severe memory issues, like, having my hubby tell me about upcoming work events that involve him being out of town, and I have absolutely no memory of the conversation. None. This happens a lot. At first, I got mad at him because I assumed he just thought he was telling me. Then it occurred to me that I was the one with the memory problem, not him. This for a person who used to pride herself on keeping track of all the little family details. My hubby used to jokingly call me his secretary.
So anyhow, about the Palm Pilot, I asked her if she could tell my hubby I needed one; take the blame, so to speak. She laughingly said she could write a prescription for me, lol! So I'm the proud owner of a new Palm Z22, the basic version that will sync with mine and my hubby's Outlook calendars.
No new crafting yet, my sewing "corner" is still a mess, but I can hear it calling to me, even if the voice is rather muffled!
A big thank you for all of the mommy support; I'm feeling better about returning to work after hearing so many good stories. Now my biggest worry is that the munchkin won't feel bad at all about leaving me!
