It's my third anniversary with WP! I'm sort of stunned that I've been blogging this long. I've had more active periods than others, and more successful periods than others, but generally I'm just happy I've stayed with something for this long. Yay! It started as sort of a "bipolar only" blog, but now I kind … Continue reading Anniversary.

Day 66

Here's my cat guarding the deck from the many birds that flock to the feeders and birdbath. She growls at them and sort of generally checks the perimeter, (although, the birds seem to know she's not much of a threat). It's slightly cooler today, but still very humid, and they are calling for thunderstorms, (my … Continue reading Day 66

Day 65

... Really. I'm just tired. It's just another day in locked down Michigan. Nothing new to report. I need to take a shower tonight. I need to do laundry. I need to clean. I need to finish up some other things to work on finding a new therapist... I know I said I needed a … Continue reading Day 65

Day 64

Last year at this time, I was here. It's a beautiful place in Michigan known as pictured rocks. Everything is still pretty much closed so it's hard to find a hotel up north, (I checked), so going up there isn't really feasible yet. All of the campgrounds are also closed, so there isn't really anywhere … Continue reading Day 64

Day 63

Well, things don't always turn out like you hoped they would. My friend summarily kicked me out of her house. It is the kind of thing that doesn't deserve to even take up the space on my blog, but it feels like it was building anyway. My mom really needs me and I should be … Continue reading Day 63

Day 62

It's a beautiful day outside in southern Michigan. Too bad we are still in the "unfree" part of the state. It's okay though, because it's hot and I'm not really good in warm weather when I'm not at the beach or in the woods, and I can't really do either, so it's mostly a day … Continue reading Day 62

Day 61

So because our governor believes we are idiots who can't take care of ourselves, she has extended the stay at home order until June 12 or something. Awesome. We are now allowed to meet in groups of less than ten and the upper peninsula and northern Michigan is open for business, but the rest of … Continue reading Day 61

Day 60

I went to the lab today to see if my pancreas is getting better or worse. If it's getting worse, I'm sure I'm headed for the hospital. I really don't want to go there. It's Memorial Day weekend here in the States, and while most everything is still closed, I'd still like to be out … Continue reading Day 60


Okay. For real. My freaking side hurts. I saw my doctor today and he ordered labs and my pancreatic enzymes are more than seven times the normal value. They gave me an option of doing a CT scan today or waiting until Friday to see where the levels were then, but I really don't want … Continue reading Sicko.

Day 58

(Not an actual image of my ancient car)... I have things to do today, per usual. I have to meet with my doctor today for another ER follow up due to some left upper quadrant abdominal pain and nausea. I have had this before and it was pancreatitis, but my levels in the ER weren't … Continue reading Day 58
