well, it’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything new, so here I am! this week has been really bad and also very good.. I was hospitalized at laurelwood in Gainesville (a psychiatric hospital).. it was, all in all, a positive thing for me.. I feel I got from it what I thought I would get from it.. the staff were nice, the other “inmates” weren’t mean, and I’m home now with better coping skills to deal with my mental illnesses.. I realized that I really need to prioritize myself and to better care for my own needs.. I’ve been not only neglecting myself, but also have been contributing to the problems..
this morning I had to go to the doctor again.. she said that she believes my ears are what’s causing the headache and nausea and dizziness.. I could tell, but she indicated that there’s a lot of fluid in my ears.. so hopefully the med(s) will help..
I just wanted to note: I’m extremely thankful for my family and the never ending support that they are to me.. I wouldn’t be here (as in alive) if I didn’t have them to help me through and to give me strength..

So glad to have you home again and glad that your time at Laurelwood was profitable. You are strong enough to accomplish your new goals and I am confident you will. We love you and are here for you.
