Default Re: Bipolar check-in #42

I had hoped to have more energy and to get more done today, meeting some additional deadlines (need to be met soon). It is a quiet day around here, which is a good time to completes tasks requiring concentration.

I have also been studying some of the laws/regs/criteria that come into play with SSDI/SSI. Needless to say I am shocked. Some must be new regulations?
I need to have a good working understanding in order to properly advocate for myself. I have been stumbling around, doing my best while blindfolded.

Letters issued to me and claim reps, especially the one assigned to each claimant, are supposed to advise us of our rights to appeal any/all of the various decisions made within the disability determination process.. Claim reps are supposed to help us through the process. Absolutely none of this is occurring in my case. In fact, my assigned claims rep is very antagonistic.

As some of you know, I have gone as far as reporting this (in a formal complaint).

I will have more to share once this is all said and done. It will be done one day, just have no idea as to when and/or as to what it will take to push through the utter nonsense.

I am doing a lot with it and about it. I just cannot comment further right now.

I am working on distracting myself when I am not actively working on the issues/case.

I had looked up a couple of points/questions which had come to me late last night. One question/answer led to yet another and before I knew it. the clock read 6 am.! Not wise. I slept for two hours and then needed to get up to attend to my Sunday morning tasks, as well as to welcome company.

I need to go get some more rest, at least for another hour or two!
I hope everyone is having a decent day today.
Love to All!

I still didnít feel wonderful but I just told myself that I wasnít going to just lay there in my own filth doing nothing another day. My husband is still awake but Iím already dying tonight. I hope I actually get some sleep tonight. That is the only way Iíll have some normalcy. I added melatonin to my cocktail. Weíll see if that helps.
I know you have tasks to complete. We all do. I know I go through this at times, too. It can feel very frustrating, of course. Please don't be too hard on yourself. You are doing whatever you can do! All we can do is to give it our best shot at any given time. I think you do so much more often than not!

I think this week will be relaxing for me at work. Lots of people in my group are already gone because they're on a trip to England. (This trip was not the trip I was worried about, though. I knew I wouldn't have to go to England, so I wasn't ever anxious about having to go there.)

As far as today goes, though, I've been doing a mix of reading, watching movies, and using my computer. Just total relaxation.

I'm probably going to read some more and then take a nap because I'm tired as hell. Mood is really good, though! But I'm not talking about having an upswing. I just mean feeling good and stable (for once).

I hope everyone has a great rest of their day.

I don't know how my friends here at PC could be more supportive. You already humour me. That's best when I'm feeling worthless like the last couple of days.

Fun and entertainment? I've actually been cleaning out my hobby room and either giving away or throwing away my stuff in preparation for moving to a smaller house. It makes me sad, but I don't know what else to do with it. I haven't got the energy to try to sell it. .... and right now I need to take the dog out for a walk.



Iím so sorry that your having to move , having to get rid of things can be so depressing

I hope walking the dog gave you some smiles

According to my T I sat there for almost 5 mins lost in thought..

I said ... Iím done, I honestly donít care if I sleep or not. Eventually my body will override my mind and I will sleep.

Well that was a turning point with my relationship to sleep.

Sure Iíd like to sleep great nightly but itís just not something I do

The only time I really need to sit up and pay attention is if I go 4-5 days of no sleep or single digits or hours, otherwise I just ride the wave.

Sometime when we stop bashing our heads into a brick wall sleep just will happen

Hope you find a solution
Thanks, Christina, I really appreciate your thoughts. You're probably right. I need to detach from this. It will be exactly and perfectly whatever it is intended to be. And I will just have to do that. I am generally quite accepting of life's difficulties, but sleep has always been avery touchy subject for me. I just need to let go. Thanks for that.
