Rather than start a new thread, and since this one is relevant, I thought I'd update ya'll here.
My next appointment with my psychiatrist is Sept. 22 and my plan is to discuss getting off my medications. I had a 'spell' back in April where I had forgotten to take my Paxil for 36 hours ~ I took the two I had missed as soon as I'd realized it and by the next afternoon I was a wreck. My doctor told me that it was simply withdrawal from the Paxil which did not calm me at all. So, I want to get off of it, under supervision, and see how I do. I'm only 39 and don't want to take meds for the rest of my life. So, we'll see how it goes.
In other news.....I am still working at the video store ~ in fact my year anniversary passed in April and I'm the only one left of the original crew. I've been there so long that I actually wrote down a list of all my customers that I know by name ~ the list topped over one hundred. And I'm proud to say that most of them come in when they know that I'm working ~ the company may not pass out the kudos enough, but I appreciate it more from our customers anyway.
My job at the real estate company is coming up on one year (three more weeks) and I love it there. The part of the company I work in is property management and I got promoted from reservations and maintenance to bookkeeping. Our head bookkeeper turned in her notice ~ her last day is August 3rd and then I will move into her position. On top of that, our company has merged with another real estate company and the assistant to the head-honcho has already agreed to pass along some of her accounting duties to me because she hates accounting. Big bucks better be in my future!
My wonderful son has been here since yesterday and our first business of the day was to take him to the local grocery store to apply for a job. Which he got ~ I can't tell you how proud I am! So, he'll be staying with me until school starts and then he'll go down to working just weekends. Most importantly, his reasoning was that if he worked at my local store, we'd be able to see each other more often. (He lives with his dad an hour away.)
He is still in the gifted program at school and still a star player on the golf team ~ he even had an entire page dedicated to his accomplishments in his year book. I am very blessed.
I've been in my own apartment (with Lacey) since February and I love living by myself. The only problem is that one month after I moved in, the owners informed all the tenants that our units were going to be sold off as condominiums. Fortunately, they have to honor my lease ~ or I can leave with no penalty. My boss, as well as some of our owners (at the day job) have been looking diligently for someplace for me to move. Thankfully, I have until January 31st and I'm sure something will come up, I'm just not looking forward to moving again. Ughh!
Okay, the child wants to watch a movie 'Rules of Engagement' ~ which I'll probably fall asleep half-way through it.....
I love you all to pieces ~ thanks for letting me rant. Please let me know how ya'll are doing.
