I don’t actually have a drivers license. Yes, I’m 31 and have no license. Driving just makes me so anxious that I usually avoid it and have done so for 15 years. However, I recognize that I need my license for independence purposes, so today, I went driving. I drove around suburbs and quiet neighborhoods for about an hour. Next time, I might get out onto some main streets. I hope to be ready to pass my driving test within the next couple months.
I also worked a lot on my niece’s scarf, which is good because I’ve been so depressed lately that I haven’t been knitting and hardly anything has gotten done on it. I’ve made it to almost 2 feet now, so that’s wonderful! I need to have it finished by the 22nd when my sister gets back.
And I, of course, worked out. Food intake was pretty good today. I think it was pretty close to what a “normal” person would eat. I’m trying to curb the binging and restricting.
I also developed a fever. My rheumatologist told me this is a side effect of the rheumatoid arthritis. I took a nap for a couple hours and felt a little better after.
Also, this is my 500th post.
I took my kitty to the vet today. She said that overall my cat seems to be in great health. I got so many comments on how sweet and friendly she is. The vet said my cat was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy.
While I’m relieved that it wasn’t something like cancer or brain damage or liver disease, I’m still very sad and worried about my poor kitty.
When I got done at the vet, I had an email that I had an Amazon gift card available from filling out a survey a couple weeks ago. Yay!
I bought an arm band to put my phone in while I’m out walking/running and some laxatives. I haven’t had laxatives for about a month and I have pooped maybe twice in that time. Blech!
Also, over two weeks after having my wisdom teeth pulled, my mouth is still in a lot of pain. I see the dentist again in the morning, we’ll see what he says.
I just got a call from the behavioral health guy. He called up my insurance and they want me to do the PHP at the eating disorder center where I was before, and stay in their housing, so I would have 24/7 support.
I’m ok with this. I would much rather do that than inpatient at a hospital. Plus, I already know the staff and am comfortable there.
I called them, and I go in next week for an intake evaluation. I’ll keep you updated as I know anything.
