Finally decided after yesterday's unsuccessful attempt at donating blood that I do need to go back for a med check, sooner rather than later.

Yesterday I found out my pulse was irregular, not seriosly, but definately. I've noticed I can't seem to do the same amount of physical effort I used to do, when I get to the third floor where we live I sometimes feel lightheaded, almost weak (worse if I'm carrying something). Also Warren pointe out to me that I seem to be "getting dumber", although he said it in a concerned way, which I think in someways he is right.

I don't seem to remember like I used to or make as good of decisions about simple things. I've also noticed I've turned into super klutz, for ever knocking over things, dropping things, missing counters and so on. I can feel my heart but not in a loud sort of way, just in a weird way.

So Thursday the 20th I'm going into my NP who is the one prescribing my sanity meds to see if something is going on, since there were some heart issue warnings on the lamictal a few years ago, but I was fine then. Those warnings applied to long Qt, which if I remember correctly has little to know symptoms, however I come from a family where lack of heart/ cardiovascular issues means you are either extremely lucky or adopted. So I'm letting my paranoid brain take the better safe than sorry route.

I can keep it together and do great at work, yet I come home utterly exhausted despite the fact that only my brain is active, my butt is in a chair.

Thank God (and Greyhound) I have Oreo ( Miss Oreo J. Puddy Tat if you must) to make things better. She is the ultimate therapy animal, and always makes me feel better. She is also quite trainable if you have patience, love and lots of salmon flavored kitty treats. I've got her to sit and now we are working on ups (standing on her hind legs.

I think she saved me as much as I saved her (Warren loves her just as much as I do, and thinks I give her too many treats), but I digress.

This is my 3rd entry since I moved back here. I probably should dust off my html skills, as they are rustier than an old Chevy in the pasture for 40 years. I also need to find a place to host pictures for free, as gold membership just isn't in the budget right now. I also finally set up a guestbook, though it also needs work.

Still Cranky after all these years. (And I've had this place since Warren needed a grown-up to cross the street).

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
