Three musketeers ride again 1

The past few weeks we have had to cancel our three musketeers get togethers because of various illnesses of ourselves and our pets. But today we rode again! I picked Doc up and we went swimming. I did 5 laps, Doc did 6. It was good to get back into […]


Fragile 6

Today I have been very fragile. When I woke up to feed pups breakfast, I was doing great! I had all kinds of thoughts about becoming a biology teacher, and teaching the whole course as a lab class so students would experience everything they learned about. No more memorizations, more […]


Strange interaction but kept my boundaries 8

Today I went to Starbucks to meet with someone from NAMI for business purposes. We were mid-discussion about some new NAMI ideas when an quite senior lady came over and started to ask me questions about Hestia. She was polite in what she said, but a little pushy, too, like […]


Minty and fresh 2

Yesterday Brad and I went on a date. We went to the Mint Museum in Charlotte. It was really hard for us to get going. Since I’ve been ill, I’ve been home for most of the last week. So it was extra hard to leave the house. But I was […]


Spare time with friends

Brad’s Valentine’s Day present to me was to curate the bowling pictures from the other day! What a great present! Brad made several GIFs of bowling, too! Below are the pics and select GIFs. The other two GIFs were too big to load here and are on Brad’s google photos […]


Happy rainbow alpaca day! 3

Today I went out to the mailbox to get the mail and found a small package there with my name on it! At first I thought it must have been something Brad ordered, but then I double checked and it was my name on the package! So I took the […]


Googley to the rescue!

I was feeling a little off just now, so I told Brad and Hestia came running the minute she heard my voice. Brad narrated for her and said that she was saying “Googley googley”. Then he said “Googley to the rescue!” Hestia stared at me with her giant googley eyes […]


Bowling with disabilities video

It’s bowling time for people with disabilities– namely power wheelchair user Brad and tiny service dog user Veronica. I was still a bit down this morning, and I thought about cancelling my bowling plans. But I went anyway and boy am I glad I did! We went bowling with Dan, […]


Pizza and kombucha 2

Today has been better than yesterday. So that is good. I’m still doing pretty poorly, but I am actively feeling bad, instead of feeling nothing. So it is an improvement. I’ve not been able to do much today besides feed the dogs. It is even hard to follow the TV. […]


And now a down 4

Fair warning: This is a happiness-free zone today. Things had been going really well. I was really happy, and having a lot of up days. This morning I woke up and it was the opposite. That is the nature of bipolar disorder. Now I just have to hope the down […]
