{October 8, 2012}   The King Is Not Dead

Brrr!!! New England sucks when fall comes upon us and it turns cold. I’m freezing! So I’m sitting here in my Elvis snuggie absorbing the heat from my cat.

Last night I made dinner for everyone. Homemade baked macaroni & cheese with bits of baked ham, fresh tomato cubes and crumb topping. They loved it! They ate every last crumb of it. It was a very simple meal to make. I didn’t eat because by the time I was finished making it I’d snacked on the tomatoes and wasn’t hungry. So I just had a beer. I was in bed by ten o’clock, though, and that’s early for me. But for some odd reason I’ve been waking up as soon as the sun comes up. I even have every window covered with  dark green blinds, black sheets and dark blue curtains, so it’s not the light from the early morning sun that is waking me up.

I got my flu shot on Friday and had a physical exam, but I refused to be weighed and I also refused to have a pap and breast exam. My doctor wasn’t very impressed but she didn’t push it… she admitted to me that she is afraid to push me to have things done because of my temper. She switched me from Ativan to Klonopin because the Ativan seems to have stopped working. She did spend just over an hour with me and she agreed with me about the way I feel regarding doctors: my therapist deals with my mind, my Osteopathic doctor is supposed to fix my back (only my back) and she is supposed to prescribe meds and make sure I’m not going to keel over anytime soon. Simple as that. She understood why I got so mad about my Osteopathic doctor trying to make me keep a food journal and prove to her what I’m eating and trying to diagnose my mental disorders. That’s not her place.

Ugh. Sorry, I’m still mad about that.

Today’s agenda: nothing. Exactly how I like it 🙂
