Unhappy Re: Bizi's thread:

Since I have been AF my internet usage has gone up. I am constantly late for things in the morning.
Have been skipping self care tasks at night as well. like not brushing my teeth or washing my face. Last night I did not put on any of my night time facial products.
acne med, eye cream, hydrating mist, cereve mosturiser on my neck regenerist moisturiser on my dry outer edges of my face. It was after midnight already.
I have been cutting back on taking my supplements because it takes time setting them up.
sigh
My picking has increased. Last night I just ripped off a piece of dry skin. and of course bled. I put a band aide on it. It is very painful this morning.
I went into a chat room last night and the moderator...no one else was in there, pointed me to an article about skin picking and that led me to excoriation disorder.
I believe I have this to a lesser extent.
I wonder what the treatment for it is?

N-ACETYL CYSTEINE, an Amino acid supplement. My doctor ordered me this 600mg twice a day for the compulsive picking. Very happy to try this. I just ordered it from Amazon so it should be here in a few days. Maybe it will help with my other compulsions?????

Entertained a couple of guest artists and his fiance Julie. the mens names I can't think of they are Indian...and I am not good with names. Two are vegetarians.

We went out to dinner twice. The 5 of us ate at a Thia place called bang koc thia. I had a shrimp(that was over cooked) coconut soup that ended up being too spicy and I choked because of it. It was very good otherwise and I had a quart left over...had ordered a potsize. We shared an order of coconut ice cream...I ate more than I should have. I was delicious!!!!!!!


The concert was great.Bizi's thread:
The men played together, one played a sitar and the other a type of drum. They were very good. The small audience clapped loudly so they felt good about it.


Tonight We ate a this place called chopsticks and it was very good. I had hot and sour soup which was good. then Jeff and I split a pot of mixed meats and veggies it was not too spicy.

I did have one medium size egg roll.
They gave us their left overs which was so nice of them.

Every one drank alcohol but me. I did not miss it all!

I really did not think of it at all which is great!

I may need to take one of them to the airport tomorrow will see.

Jeff is picking up 2 of them tomorrow morning at 10 but he has a rehearsal after lunch and the concert is at 3pm, a veterans day concert.

I have much paperwork to do and 2 loads of laundry.
I would like to go to the concert....
but I really need to be disciplined!

It is cold for us....40's
Hugs to those who need them.Bizi's thread:

Red face Re: Bizi's thread:

I was just looking back at my notes and I weighed 137 on 11-1-15.
four years later I weighed 192....That is 55 pounds!
I blame the weight gain on drinking. I was drinking fattening craft beers and many of them. And some of the meds that I was on did not help:abilify, seroquel, zyprexa.Now am on lithium so don't know if that is a weight gainer or not...I think it is. Supposedly geodon is weight neutral.
So I have lost 5 pounds so am happy about that. 10% lost.

Hey friends!



26 days AF, 8 pounds down, picking much much better, computer too much!
I have all of my favorite d book marks/web sites listed in a column on the left side of my page. I post on many different sites:2 different bipolar sites, nutrition and cutting down drinking to lose weight, HAMS harm reduction in cutting down drinking. face book, email weather channel, blogs etc.
Since I post on these I regularly check to see if anyone has responded. I have certain people that I follow and read to see if they have posted. We I keep going over and over to these sites it takes a long time to read up on these posts the psych central forum is very involved, very busy and hard to keep up.

I call it mental masturbation.The attention to posts that I get is rewarding..
I saw 2 clients today. one was in bed and did not need it done. So I will do her in 2 months when I come back for her hubby. sweet sweet man!
they live out of town about an hour. I see them every 2 months.

I have worn long underwear all week.
40's in the mornings then warms up to 60 today.

We have a coupon for buy one entree get one free for bonefish grill....think we will go there after jeff gets home from the student music society fraternity that jeff is the faculty adviser. They have some sort of ceremony today.
I know what I am going to get at bonefish: Lillys chicken it has spinach and basil and artichoke hearts and goat cheese and lemon butter....yummy!
I always get it.

I am still seeing a chiropractor for my neck(chronic neck pains issues) and back (I had hurt my back in August at the beach getting out of the tub)and ankle (I sprained my ankle 9-11-19).
I have been seeing him weekly going on 3 months.
Think he is helping.
Jeff just got home so will sign off.

You're doing great on your AF streak. I bet seeing the weight come off is great motivation. Keep up the great work.

I've gotten back to my healthy eating plan, and cut out almost all junk food, and have dropped 10 lbs in the last month. Feels really good.

As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.
