Feeling a bit down

Think it's the new meds that are making me feel down. My mood swings a lot too. That is not how I usually am. Just last week at work when I was talking to my advisor/teacher that visits me at the clinic, I was crying. Just not like me. I hate it. She was a bit pissy that day and directed it at me but it was just minor. It was just a bad day I guess.

Maybe I'll get my doc to switch to a different heart medicine cause it works to lower blood pressure but I'm moody though I try to control it. My hubby doesn't like it that's for sure.

Well the good thing is that we have President's day today so me and my son are going to find something fun to do. I'm still in the process of writing my paper and it's taking me a lot longer than I thought it would. I can't seem to concentrate on it!!

My sister wanted to have some fun this weekend and she talked my mom into us all meeting at a hotel near Seattle that had a pool. The kids had fun and swam a lot. I think my sister just wanted a break as none of the adults got in the pool. How could we with like 30-35 kids in a small pool! I didn't want to anyway as I'm not wanting to get into my swimsuit right now. ha. We may go to the gym today/the Y it's called and my son will play some baskeball. He's a little small for the hoops but sometimes they lower them a bit. It will give us something to do. We try raquetball but he gets bored after 5 minutes. Maybe some day I'll get a decent game. We'll walk around the indoor track unless it's nice today we will get to the park and walk. It's still cold though but yesterday was around 50 F so that was balmy for this time of year.

We made our plans to visit San Francisco in June for my hubby's 'escape from Alcatraz' race. We are looking forward to that. His family may come to see it or just to visit as they only live about an hour and 1/2 from there so he will like that.

As far as my office politics that I was talking about I won't go into it much I was just upset at the time. One of the ladies was giving me advice (not my teacher there) and then after that talking negative about the others. I decided to keep quiet as there is already some tension there between her and the others. She will not be able to convert me to her side, that's for sure! She seems like the gossip/ and backstabber type to me. I am neutral, that's good advice you all gave. I'm just there for a year and then on to a hospital the second year and I want to 'be like the duck'. What I mean is everything will run off my back just like water. Ha! Easier said than done but I can do it.

Let me know how you are all doing on your healthy living this week! I'm didn't eat out too much this week and will strive to eat at home most of this week and pack my lunches!

(I'm farting around with my header up top....obviously I don't know how to make a good one. I don't know how to make caption along with a picture. Any ideas? Or is it hard? This is me back in my scuba diving days.....I miss those days and all the sun and fun!)

I don't know how to make a good header either. I think you have to download the whole html from various websites that volunteer the templates.

I honestly figure that the content is what counts the most anyway.

I hope you are feeling better all around. You are making great progress towards your goals, don't let the little bumps in the road bother you.

Hi ya Patti...
Sorry to hear you are so down... things sound really touch at your end of the world...
I know how hard it is so take some time just for yourself..
Is it possible for you to do something really nice just for you?? something that doesnt cost much??
Just know that you are not alone and that we all go thru mood swings at times..... i hope the dr can get your meds sorted to help...

I'd be happy to make a header for you in photo shop. Send me a few scuba pics or a few pics you want to combine together, and what caption you might want. :)

Cheer up buttercup, we love you.
