A Happy Bipolar Birthday

Today is the day for champions… and so is tomorrow.

I’ve been thinking a lot for a long time. Too long. Too much. That’s okay.

Today really is my birthday. My dinner of choice was made for me and it was yummy.

It snowed. It SNOWED!! It hardly ever snows here, but it did today! On my birthday. (Feb. 3rd) Three hours later it was all gone. Not a big surprise. It was beautiful.

My beautiful dog Bailey (she’s a Kelpie). She did NOT want to sit in it.
The front of the house.

I’ll catch you folks tomorrow. The topic on deck… what happens in my brain when my already overloaded circuits are confronted with Sleep Apnea and the demonic CPAP.

Bipolar – Eternally Sleepless

I’m not sure how to say this without making it all messy, so I’ll try to put it as simply as possible. I’m complicated. Life is complicated and it seems to keep getting more complicated all the time.

Last week I found out I have Sleep Apnea. I never sleep. I wake up 10-20 times an hour. I always thought I had a weak bladder. Nope. Not breathing. Daytime my oxygen is at 98. During sleep it’s about 84. This seems to be of some concern. Yeah. So is my ADHD keeping me from paying attention? Or is it my mania? Or my constant state of exhaustion? Oiy!

Tomorrow I’m having a joint in my thumb replaced.

This fish says it exactly what I think about not sleeping and getting a new thumb. He’s just plain masterfully bonkers! I want one, but they’re salt water fish. I don’t have salt water tanks. It looks amazing, and totally creepy. I need more sleep. I started dreaming our catfish ate one of our guppy fry and snapped it in half like Jaws would do. Holy Cow!

“I hate my wife.” (My kids say I’m not allowed to say “I hate my life,” anymore. Oh, and I have neither husband nor wife.)  

Sleep Apnea and Bipolar = How the hell would I know?

New thumb and writing = Figuring out how to use Dragon (OMG)

Things to do when fear of having a third joint replacement is eating away at one’s self-confidence: Drive towards Mt. Rainier and stop for pizza in Elbe, WA.

Hold on to your hats. It’s going to be exciting!

Sometimes I don’t like to be alone… but this isn’t what I had in mind.
