Mental illness and running

I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

I beamed then, so glad you are not cancelling on Alice.

Hmm I guess having 'helpers' must make it significantly harder to declutter. I think happy, engaged mini's are much more important than tidy houses even through the ocd

We talked loads yesterday

Mummy by eck is coming round for a chat today. She wants to come off lithium because of the side effects. I am concerned because her psychologist isn't keen on switching her to another drug which still works, doesn't have the same side effects, but isn't generally prescribed on the NHS. I know if the drs don't agree she wi'll just stop the lithium and then the bipolar stuff will come flooding back. Urgh! I do agree the side effects are bad.

Anyway, moo is still scooting around without many clothes on so I need to fix that soon. He's reached the 'independent' stage. That means I'm not allowed to do much for him.

Oh that sounds really worrying by eck, presumably the docs are aware of the risks that not discussing meds with her may lead to non-compliance.
Will be thinking of you today.
*grins at Moo* I haven't got dressed yet either!

Right, I have managed to get the child dressed, put a load of washing on, sweep the living room floor and start to declutter the kitchen. I will save my celebratory cuppa until my mum arrives, but moo is being rewarded by the chance to listen to an amazing piece of choral music. Even his car is enjoying it.
Solb, getting dressed is only necessary if you need to go out, but does help to structure your day. Shall I stick the kettle on for you?

Yes please  

I want to go to the gym and I need to go to the post office so clothes would be a good idea at some point! 

I love the thought of Moo's car enjoying the choral music  

Hope it goes well with your Mum today, will be thinking of you

I am still waiting for mummy by eck. But I don't want to chase her because I don't want to push her.

Tries to waft tea fumes towards a sleeping bear.

Solb, how are you doing with food today?

*bounces on Bear's bed* that ought to help 

I've eaten yoghurt for breakfast but I'm looking through recipe books now what do you all want for lunch?

Mummy and daddy by eck kidnapped moo so I chipped carrots and courgettes for the freezer, and made a carrot cake for moo.
He is now home and eating cheese bread. The cough has returned and he is talking to the Dr on his Olay phone. The only words I can make out are "poorly" and "bye"...

Grrr I slept in again, didn't helkp that I forgot to set the alarm clock.  I must get into a routine of getting up as soon as I wake up.  Just the act of getting vertical helps.


What piece of choral music are we talking about, by 'eck?  I've recently started liking choral music thanks to the wonderful Eric Whitacre who writes the most goose bumpingly gorgeous stuff.  I got to see him at the proms and it's even more amazing live

Blech it's blowing like a good 'un out there

Allegri's miserere mi.
I should be going to hear the sixteen in February for a lovely valentine's day treat with Mr by eck and 2 of moo's Godparents. I would love to take moo as e connects with music in such a magical way. Sadly, I can't trust him to sit still and not join in.
Bear, it's ok to have less vertical days. Don't beat yourself up.
Right, carrot cakes have been iced and are ready for eating. Does anyone want one?

Trouble is I'm having too many of them lately

I don't want to do the school run nearly a mile each way in the rain won't be much fun, especially with miss by eck on the way home. She is aiming for a PhD in complaining at the moment

If it's anything like here, it's manky out


SOLB are you noshing today?

Little moo may end up at the drs
21/11/2012 at 16:05

oh dear poor Moo

21/11/2012 at 16:14
He likes it there. Nice drs who make a fuss of him, lots of toys to play with, and he gets plenty of praise because he knows the ropes so cooperates

Can't be nice being ill enough to go though poor thing

21/11/2012 at 16:57
No, I suppose not. At the moment, he is drinking milk, sitting on my knee and cuddling cat 3
