Sleeping through nights. So thankful. Pumped to go out tomorrow. Bloodwork, maybe a flu shot, maybe donate blood, thrift store to browse books, & two grocery stores. Still love my little man, Pog.

My little brother stopped by today. We haven't seen him in so long. Finally got to meet his girlfriend who he has been with for 1.5 years. She's awesome. Mom sent pics they had done. He looks happy!

BF & daughter on fall break. A whole week. Nice to have them home. Still sleeping through the night. It's great. Stopped my Hydroxyzine in hope of being less tired all day. Not working but less meds.

So tired even after sleeping 12 hours. Talk to psychiatrist on Monday. Hope I can reduce something to lessen it but I know he wants to be careful with the season change since it can be rough Bipolar.
