New To the Group

Hi everyone....

I'm Coffeegirl.... I'm a STAM with two wonderful little boys who keep me very busy. Right now I'm at a loss because they are soon to be off into kindergarten, and I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. Hobbies...Yep finding them will be what will happen, along with a good exercise routine to rid of some of this excessive weight I've gained with the Abilify. Anyway...

This is a great forum... and I hope I am able to post more often.

Toodles n' kadoodles.......

Coffeegirl

Coffeegirl:

With your two son at school,the most important thing to do is take care of Coffeegirl. Start out with a cup of the best coffee you can buy at Starbucks !
Then go for a little morning jog. Wonder over to the Mall and just "look" at everything (but buy a "little" something just for you,your husband will approve). Have a very light lunch with a friend. And,than, a slow "long way home" drive home in time to prepare for all the "things" you need to hear and do,when the "boys" return home from school ! !

Post when you can,you have the time now.

You know me,

Eyestwo22

Thanks Eyestwo22.... I'll take your advice and definitely hit Starbucks for sure. They just opened 2 new stores in our town this past month. And, I'll be hitting those joints quite often! LOL

Take care and have a great day~

Jen...

I was dx'd back when I was 32 and I'm now 35. My dad was an undx'd bipolar and my twin sister has depression but might be bipolar as well, they aren't quite sure. More than likely she is by her actions and behaviors.

School starts next Thursday for my sons. It will be nice but I'm kinda sad at the same time. All day kindergarten for them.

When were you dx'd Jen?

Take care,

Coffeegirl

Re: New To the Group

coffeegirl...

well i actually haven't been technically diagnosed, but all of the signs are there. the sympton list of bipolar looked more like a checklist of what i had been feeling. mom has been after me for the past year or so to go to a pdoc becuase of her history... she is bipolar...ultrarapid cycler. she is stablized now...but i remember coming home all during highschool and she would be sleeping. i deny'd for the longest time that i was even depressed. it all seemed to spin out of control when my husband told me he wasn't happy in the relaitonship back in november. our divorce was final on 6/2 and i think that was one of my darkest days.
i could go on and on...believe me. and i bet you could as well..

thanks for listening...
jen
