M* ~ Are you Ok?

Hi M*~~

I haven't heard anything from you in the last few days, just wanted to check on you and make sure you are hanging in there.

I know things have been really tough for you lately, and you have been feeling kind of overwhelmed. And you have been having computer problems, so hopefully that's the only reason for your absence.

You have a lot of folks who care about you here, so let's hear from you Ok?

Wherever you are hiding it's time to run for home base. Don't make me reach through this monitor and shake you!

Re: M* ~ Are you Ok?

Thanks for asking...

My ridiculous "system" sent me for a few spirals this last week...

Went to Reno a week ago to R & R. Due to the Hotel/Casino openning a Poker Room ~ I didn't need to even walk, much less drive anywhere... Good thing...

After "blowing" my initial buy-in stone sober (before even unpacking the car), I decided to loosen my spirits by imbibing in spirits... Four bottles of Sam Adams primed the pump... Then I left the bar and returned to the Poker Room... THIS time, I decided to keep double-Jack-Daniels on my sleeve throughout... After about 10 hours, I left ~ having made back my buy-ins AND realizing about 140 extra...

HOWEVER... I have no notion of how much whiskey I took in.

It was WAY too much.

Managed to stagger to the room (don't recall the journey) ~ and had already started the hangover before getting there...

YES - I brought it on myself...

Unfortunately ~ it became kind of like a chemical version of Russian Roulette...

The next couple of days I was in and out of toxic states ~ and thought it ought to have normalized by the weekend... WRONG...

It seems I gave myself way too much of a chemical ECT ~ and have now been unable to tolerate even a smidgeon of caffeine AND have had almost non-stop migraines for the last 4 days...

After weaning myself of everything ~ I'm just NOW beginning to feel roughly normalish again...

Major downside ~ the alcohol did its true "thing" by adding to the already manifest depression... I was in an emotional state of being that wants a person to preclude their state of being... That ~ compounded with the migraines AND an inability to even take an Excedrin (yep - I even react to those) ~ left me right next to the curled-up ball in the corner...

My therapist had written the crisis line number on a card for me on Monday - just before the trip (Monday the 4th)... I came mighty close to using it... All through the mess, my daughter was acting totally belligerent and out of control - which only fueled the fires (along with wife's acidity)...

But...

Time does seem to eventually level the playing field...

And here I am...

Back, and almost feeling myself (let's hope the video-cam isn't catching that)...

Thanks for your concern !!!


Due to repleat computer problems (which are continueing) and some failed battles which involved a different computer usage (mostly to get volleyball courts re-aligned) ~ I was getting quite frustrated with even trying to get online...

My hopeful prescription... Go and try to play some golf - and hope that nature allows some positive juices to start flowing...

I've never been good at "waiting", and the credit card company that got hit with (now) over 12K in attempted fraud will not begin to negotiate with me until THEY finish THEIR normal billing cycle(s), as THEY managed to approve a number of the charges... Yet I have to pay for notary fees and police report copies AND pray that they'll live up to THEIR contractual and federal obligation to NOT assess fees and otherwise foul my life and credit...

Even though I "closed" the account on March 23rd, their billing cycle closes on April 19th, and they say they MUST honor all approvals for which they receive merchant invoices (ain't this great)... So, even though I've done everything humanly possible to stop this mess in its tracks - I still have to wait to continue the battle... and don't know how far or deep it will go...

Other than that, I'm doing just peachy-keen !!!

Y'all take care, and I'll try to do the same !!!

Re: M* ~ Are you Ok?

Hi There!!

I'm glad your (sort of) ok. Isn't it funny that no matter how many times we make ourselves sick from drinking, we still do the same thing again, and again? It is so tempting when you go somewhere like Reno, or any vacation really, to fall into that trap. It's a shame how our bodies tend to punish us so much more as we get older.

Even if you did lose a few brain cells (you probably had a couple extra to spare) at least you still have your sense of humor through it all.

I'm so sorry you are still having family problems, as well as all that credit card stuff. But hey, think of all the 'shoes in kansas' jokes you can make about it later on when it's behind you. Maybe it could even be a chapter in your book!

I'm glad you're back, and feeling a little better.....
take it easy,

~~heather~~

Re: M* ~ Are you Ok?

Thanks !!!

Yeah, heather ~ it's true what you said about as we age...

I know I pushed too hard this time... About 2 in the afternoon on Wednesday (a week ago) ~ I had a sensation while wide awake (and no longer theoretically intoxicated) that was unique for me... I nearly passed out ~ while walking ~ as if someone had pulled out my power cord... Fell into a wall and just sat there a moment... Guess I abused the olde machinery too hard this time around...

Homeostasis is a wonderful thing... I just hope it catches up with me SOON !!!

Golfed - and fought off icky sensations ~ only to get a re-emergence of the gosh-aweful headache this afternoon...

Slowly, surely, this too will pass... I HOPE !!!

Computer-wise, it seems like if I by-pass the "favorites" and simply type in the address, then this infernal contraption doesn't go down as fast or as often... Hence, I will keep on keepin' on, until such time as...

~ M* ~ Eatin' the pain like a peanut butter "sammich" !!!

You are my friend.
And that my dear is that.

Re: M* ~ Are you Ok?

Hi everybody,

Gee Gee, you are such a silly lady, why would anyone be mad at you? I just don't want to be too chatty on the board about nothing in particular. I don't know why that other thread was removed, but we really didn't stay on any particular subject regarding bipolar, so I thought maybe we're supposed to be more serious and on topic.....I'm really sorry you have the mumps, you poor thing, it's always something, huh?

I have been trying to limit my time on here, so I don't neglect my other responsibilities...plus, it's finally really nice outside, so I'm spending a lot more time outdoors.....

I haven't been feeling so great most of the time, so when I do, I want to take advantage, and try and have a life!!!

I think about all of you guys, and wish we all didnt have to deal with so much 'stuff', ya know?

Ok, M* I think it's about time for one of your jokes....

gotta go, take care all

~~heather~~

Re: M* ~ Are you Ok?

A funny thing happened on the way to this posting...

Mostly, I could only get "technical difficulty" messages all afternoon !!!

On the other hand ~ if you were to add glare reduction to split lensed glasses ~ would that make them "bipolarized", or just the wearer ???

Ahhhh, weed hopper ~ when you can snatch these reading glasses from my open hand - you will be able to SEE for yourself !!!
