I’ve heard some talk recently about people who have bipolar going into “remission.” I’m not entirely sure what I think of this. I completely agree that it’s possible to get on the right combination of meds and have the right treatment plan that will allow you to be symptom free for periods of time. I think I’m in that place right now. I just wonder if calling it remission is being too optimistic. I just don’t know. At any rate, I feel like the last several days, perhaps the last week or so, has been awesome for me. I haven’t had any real problems, my moods have been in the normal range, no blow ups… So perhaps, maybe I am in remission. I’m just not quite ready to put another label on this shit right now.
Yesterday was beyond awesome. I spent the majority of the day with Gemma and we had a great time. I worked on the sock, she worked on her blanket, we talked, we had a lovely Afternoon Tea time… AWESOME. I love hanging out with her. She’s one of the few people I feel like I can really be myself around. If you’ve never experienced that, I feel bad for you. I think everyone should have at least one fried they feel that comfortable with. I’m lucky enough to have a few.
We had yummy cucumber and cheese sandwiches and probably the best tea I’ve ever had. Gemma has this beautiful antique tea set that we used. Simply lovely.
What would a proper tea be without scones! These were homemade and absolutely delicious. We had them with raspberry jam. YUMMY!
Equally awesome was the sock. It’s DONE.
Mom very much likes them. She’s already put in a request for another pair. Fortunately the next pair will not be tube socks. I was very pleased with the progress I made. I even had enough time to start a shawl for me.
Ignore the fact that it looks like lady parts right now, m’kay?
So far this vacation is off to a phenomenal start. Today I”m going to have lunch with my boss at one of my favorite Greek restaurants. Very looking forward to that. This afternoon I’ll be spending some time working on Josh’s new socks. I got the first row done last night before my sister brought her brood over and I had to put stuff down. I had thought maybe I’d work on them last night but Josh wanted to read. Since I’m trying to encourage that, I agreed to put down the yarn.
I feel like I’m in a good mood right now and that I should be able to stay good for awhile, which is wonderful. The garage sale is this weekend and we’ll have the kid again. Just hoping the good stuff lasts through that. Last weekend while we were out shopping I picked up several craft things for us to do, so hopefully that helps.
