cocoa is sickly and i'm terrified but something funny happened and i'm so freaking grateful. 2 pics.

i won't share the disgusting details but cocoa is having some scary digestion issues. there are some streaks of red. she's had this before and it's resolved by the next day. but this is off and on for a few days now and...

so of course i called the Vet and they can see her tomorrow or i can just drop off a lovely sample. 

this is scaring the shit out of me. i've been struggling since ella fitzgerald died in july. and cocoa is almost 10 years old. the poor girl. when she's quiet…

major gratitude/frightful fatitude/less packrat-itude/still more suckitude/kitty, puppy and packrat pics-itude! Part One...

okay, first so much gratitude that i can't get my mind around it: cocoa chanel and i were out and about 4 days this past week (i left my home once more but couldn't take my feline-american with me.), my friend with the dying daughter has finally started talking to me about her, my friend the Hoarder Whisperer waved her magic wand and made a HUGE dent in the Terminal Clutter that's been plaguing me. and she brandished the stick with the colorful feathers at the end of it for a long long time…

for those of us with bipolar disorder, there is new film about BP that sounds like it gets it right/kitty and puppy pics. Again.

i will write more about this later. just wanted to share the link with anyone with this challenging illness and the people we love and vice versa or, shit, the people we encounter in the world on a day when we are manic or darkly depressed. and on the blessed lovely days when we are hypomanic and get very creative. we talk too much but not oppressively so. we are full of positive energy and everything seems possible until things shift, again... and maybe out meds cocktails need to be…

the gratitude: out & about to doctor & to walk around downtown (with pics) /the suckitude: Other People. & kitty & puppy, etc. pics!

first the gratitude: cocoa and i were out and about on tuesday with the dentist, etc. so we were pretty proud of ourselves. then there were the requisite 2 days of recouping and processing all that contact with Other People. i always worry, during these down times, if i will be able to venture out again or if the bipolar depression is going to grab me and pull me under.

well, i was twice blessed this week and yesterday i took a shower and washed my hair -- hygiene tends to fall off…

gratitude: yesterday i went out & about! dentist, vet, verizon store, fred meyer! after too many days Inside.

i've been still struggling with the Big Move over here. and finding my Friends on OS. But i realized today that this is a huge opportunity and a blessing, that since almost no one is going to read my posts, this gives me huge freedom to write whatever i want to write. even if it's just doing my daily gratitude journal entry. it can be whatever. the pressure to Write Well for myself and, far too often,  to write for my Peeps is gone gone gone, girl.

so, okay, shit. Gratitude. it's all…

meditating with oprah & deepak/yes, virginia, i am desperate to feel better/re-post: how i got to be a front row guest on oprah...

how i got to be a front row guest on Oprah, back in the day.

okay, the thing is that i'm not doing all that well. i don't care for Change. i know, i know, Change is Life or Life is Change. whatever. it seems that i was in completely denial about OS shutting down. and i certainly didn't think that they would shut down the PMs with no notice. that is pure Asshat behavior. i'm doing what i'm supposed to be doing, moving my posts -- well,…

kitty in a basket, kitty in a box, kitty in a box on top of cocoa in her crate... another break from moving posts over to Our Salon.

lately i've been taking lot of photos of my critters. kitty in a box, kitty in a basket, cocoa in her crate that is raggedy because gary cooper keeps chewing on the mesh panels and ripping them apart, kitty in a box on top of cocoa in her crate. very exciting stuff, i know. and close-ups of Cocoa looking like the Angel she is.…

photos of me being pissed off and of Gary in another box. the biggest one yet!

3 words: Girl Scout Cookies!!! and 3 more: Thin Mint Cookies!!! so i'm waiting for my change and one of the girl scouts falls in love with Cocoa and just will not leave her alone. the GS kept lunging at C and was scaring my girl. and she wouldn't stop. finally another GS told her to back off. she was polite but firm. very cool.

i was still leery -- and kind of pissed off -- so i picked Cocoa up and cradled her. i had told one of the Moms that i needed some recent pics of myself for a…

Kitty & Cocoa pics. gary cooper's neutering/collar, pics of me looking fed up, girl scout, kitty in a box -- again

okay, so, after a week of panic, anxiety & depression and not going anywhere, i was able to shower and wash my hair -- AG and depression can lead to terrible hygiene -- and get myself and my cocoa bean out and about! to see my Meds Doc, to Unleashed/Petco for dog and kitty food, to Fred Meyer to shop for much-needed groceries and to give myself and my cocoa some good exercise and, for her, some good attention, to Rite Aid for meds and sundries and some more walking. cocoa loves this…

i was out & about 6 days last week! now? a freaking mess.

the  last two days i've felt bipolar 2 depression creeping over me. and trying to settle in. feeling sad and irritable and overwhelmed and feverish and sinusy and just wanting to pull a Rip Van Winkle and sleep until they can zap my brain back in to sanity.…
