One Task, Two Tasks, Red Fish, Purple Hull Peas, Oh Look! a Squirrel...

That is my brain these days.

I cannot for the life of me sit down and finish a single task in one go.  Doesn't matter what it is.  The ADHD meds aren't really working.  In fact, all they're doing is giving me a great big crash when they wear off.  The Great Dr. Wick did say that since I hadn't ever been on ADHD meds before that we would start out slowly.  That's the one thing I really like about my doc.  She's totally willing to prescribe the good stuff, she just does it slowly and responsibly.  She told me that she already knew she would have to up my dose... that such a low dose probably wouldn't do much.  No kidding!!  Screw easing into it at this point.  Ten mg twice a day to cover only the equivalent of eight hours?  Damn expensive and damn useless.  When you work back to back 16 hour shifts like I do at work, covering only half of that with a big crash (think 3 year old hopped up on Halloween candy crash) does not equal a productive work day.  I'm just saying. 

I go back in four days.  Hopefully we'll get it figured out.  On the plus side though... I am down 20 pounds since February!!!  So that totally rocks and now my work pants require a belt.  I am super excited about that.  Though I always forget that pesky belt!!

Hubby found a second job.  It's only part time though and making far less than he was.  Which means we're still short.  I've got to find something part time too now and the only real problem with that is working around his hours.  I've got from about 11pm until 7am four days a week.  Hopefully I can find something.  Well, I'm going to have to.  There just isn't any other option.

So I'm still in a funk.  And the more I think about it, the funkier I get.  But it has to be thought about.  Sigh.

On a completely different subject, I have been getting a little creative.  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen all sorts of funky "journal pages" I've been making.  I really need to post about those, but separately I think.  I believe I'll do just that in a little bit.  Give me something to do today that might keep my brain occupied.

But first, I think I really want a sausage egg mcmuffin.  I've been craving one of those for weeks and just haven't gone by.

See what I mean about squirrels?  They're everywhere.

So that's the update and I'll be posting more positive, or at least more creative things, soon.


If the squirrels will leave me alone.

Bye loves!
