I got a tattoo

Yes, yes I did.

There's this place a couple blocks away that offer small $10 tattoos. I've always wanted one and the price made it so tempting.

So one day my sis and I were out and we stopped in to see what they had. I found a small ankh that I like and took the dive. I now proudly have a small purple ankh on my left arm.

I'm so happy. That's one thing I can cross off my bucket list, lol.

How awful am I? 10 seconds after the guy started my tattoo, I was already planning on getting my next one, lol.

It was awsome. The camera is dead, so I'll post pics later.

Went to the doc the other dsay

Sometimes I swear my shrink is useless. Then others, I think he's just ok.
So, I had my monthly visit with him. He's upped my Lamictal to 150mg, he's shooting for a therapuetic dosage of 200mg, but he's moving it up slowly.

I have to admit, on a feeling human scale of 1 to 10, I'm at about a 2.5. Making this the best I've felt in my life, lol. Too bad I'm so exhausted all the time to take advantage of it. And I mean exhausted, that achy tired feeling you get when you've been awake for 3 days straight. I spend more time trying not to fall asleep and planning naps.

I sleep fine, I'm getting 8-10 hours a night. But I can't make it through the day without a 2-3 hour nap. Ug. Hopefully I'll get over it soon, not sure why it's happening.

And I'm having a lot of dreams (normally I'm not a dreamer). Every night now. I'm dreaming a lot about the ex, not sure why. I think these are also side effects from meds.

It just keeps getting more interesting.

So tired

Seriously. All the time. No matter how much sleep I get. I just feel exhausted, and it's that achy exhausted too.

I spoke with my therapist about it, she says it's the depression and that I have to force myself to do things. But it's so hard. I just feel so awful, my body doesn't want to function, all it wants to do is go to sleep.

It's kind of freaking me out a bit. I've always been depressed and felt tired, but not like this. I've never slept like I have been lately (9+ hours a night and sometimes an afternoon nap of 2 hours). I usually have problems sleeping. I usually sleep 3-5 hours a night. That's how I've been my entire life.

Maybe it's the meds, I really don't think so. Maybe I've discovered one of their unknown side effects, lol.

I just wish I had some energy. The meds are working a bit, I'm have bouts where I feel better a few times a day. But I'm just so exhausted that I can't take advantage of them.

Blech.

House hunting

Well, my sister is officially looking for a house. Not sure yet if it's going to happen, but she's looking and trying.

I really hope it works out. She and her husband want to start a family in the next year or 2, so it would be nice if they were settled into a home instead of hopping from apartment to apartment.

We went out yesterday driving around looking at houses that are for sale and found quite a few possibilities. Now she just has to see if she can get the mortgage at a price she can afford. *fingers crossed*
