    Wow! Who's the quickest "good morning" poster? Don is!!

    I'm awake cause I was having a stupid stress dream. :selfbonk:

    I do intend on going back to sleep. [BANANA]YAY SLEEP![/BANANA]

    In the morning I have a conference to go to that I signed up for months and months ago called Assessment and Care of the Geriatric Client. So I'll be going to that. It's at a hotel near SO's work. At least they include food in the price

    Well, I'm at work; really just got started--made first rounds, gave midnite meds and now sat down to chart this stuff and have first cup of coffee; thought I'd just look in and as long as the thread is started, decided to say Hello to all!!

    Pretty much got to run now, but I'll be back.

    Don & Adrien hope you both get some good Sleep----

    Good morning!!

    Miss me? I haven't been posting much lately. Just extremely stressed thinking about school, commuting 90 minutes one way, how will I afford to move out and on top of that I've been depressed lately. I barely make it to work. Will see my dr this week about that. I was taking Paxil CR but when they took that temporarily off the market he put me on Cymbalta. Doesn't work, makes me more depressed and it makes me nauseus. I'm not quite sure that anti depressants work for me. I'm a terminal pessimist. There's not a pill for that.

    Sheesh, that paragraph will bring everybody down. I got my cholesterol checked and my triglycerides are......................430!!!! Ahhhhh!!!! I asked a physician how long they have to be high before I'm at risk for a heart attack (serious family history of them). She said for a while. But then I told her that I've had high cholesterol since I was 14. She said I HAVE to buckle down and watch what I eat, exercise, take meds, etc. But I do all that and it's still high.

    I have been exercising for 2 hours everyday for 2 months and I have not lost a single pound. It's frustrating.

    Haven't even been to bed yet and I have to meet a friend at noon so we can work out. I have this week off so I decided I would go to Clifty Falls State Park (in Madison, IN - check it out, it's gorgeous) and hike. I'm worried about snakes though. My friend went there recently and saw a water moccasin. I've got mace in my purse, you think that would deter them?

    Hope everyone has a great day!!

    Good Morning!!!

    Looks like I'm the first one up who actually slept last night. It was a restless night because I took a long nap yesterday and wasn't tired so I got up at 5AM.

    ((((Bethin)))), as we say down south........"Girl you are a hot mess!". You have a lot of issues and sound stressed. Take steps. Enjoy the week off.

    Hello everyone
    I hope the ones that needed rest/sleep got it.
    ((((bethin)))) I think with the cold weather the snakes will be hibernating.

    ((((bethin)))) Hunny Paxil is very hard to quit cold turkey -- I bet that's one reason why you're feeling crappy. Take care.
