I'm still tired today. I didn't sleep that well last night. It was on and off. I did not take my sleeping pill last night. I had a doctor's appointment this morning and I did not want to sleep through it.

The appointment went okay. The results of the pill cam were nil. The procedure found nothing physically wrong with me: no tumors, lesions, cancer or internal bleeding of any kind. I'm thankful for that. I have to have more blood tests though, which I am not happy about. The doctor believes that one of the medications I take for my bipolar disorder is causing me to not produce blood properly. The new blood tests are to confirm that. For now I am on an iron supplement and that's the only change in anything. Maybe I'll start to feel less tired in general once this is all sorted out and my meds are fixed. I can only hope.

I am going through something right now that I want to talk about here but can't, in fact I feel like I can't talk to anyone about it, and it's driving me up the wall. The thing itself is killing me, and not being able to talk about it to anyone is killing me, too. I've never had this kind of problem before, and my inability to deal with it properly is part of the issue, for which I can blame no one but myself. It relates to my ex-wife putting me off on something, and that's all I can say about it. Is that cryptic and mysterious enough? I wish the solution would just drop into my lap, but I know that's not going to happen.


  1. You've got my E Mail address. Talk to me there, if you'd like to talk to someone. I won't judge you. Glad your test results on your blood work didn't show anything bad. Hugs.

  2. ?? You can talk to me. You know that.

  3. Hope you can resolve the issue.

    I can only imagine you are tired if your blood count is low.

    Do you take b-12 for it or is there something stronger?


  4. Rach- I know, but it involves "you know who"...

    Bobby- Had a blood test specifically for my b12 level and it is normal. I guess that's why the doctor put me on iron?
