Insomnia seems to be sneaking up to nip at my heels; I can only presume that it’s further evidence of a possible mood swing. I couldn’t tell you which way at current – I don’t think it’s hypo ’cause I’m not bouncing about trying to create (That was a week or two ago, I think. Think.), but I don’t feel like I’m returning to depression yet either. I’m not feeling terribly motivated, but I’m not unmotivated either. I’m just sort of… here… I guess.
I added another herbal supplement to my regime last night; my husband had ordered me a pot of flaxseed oil tablets upon doctor’s suggestion. Well, he suggested oily fish (I don’t much like fish as done here; Texans do shrimp, crabs, lobsters, and catfish… not cod and haddock), and then said something about Omega 3-6-9. Flaxseed oil covered that remit better than any fish oil tablets my husband could find, so that’s what we nabbed. I’m adding that to my daily intake of a chamomile tablet (for anxiety), so we’ll see how that helps. It probably can’t hurt, at the very least. And if natural supplements can keep me on a smaller dose of mind-altering meds (I’m currently on 200mg of Seroquel, and that’s it), then it’s a very good thing, especially with this continued attempt to have kid #2. I logic that if I can get part way to keeping sane with natural meds, then that might succor me through the nine months of pregnancy once that kids off; I intend to not breastfeed so I can get medicated again asap. I am making that decision most firmly based on my experiences after my first was born. Judge as you will or won’t (I admit that I used to judge a bit in this regard), but I have to do what I think is going to be best for me and FutureSprog™®. After said future child is born, I’m all for chemicalling up and seeing what further strides I can do in self-repair.
Past that, I am pleased that I managed to make this blog slightly more functional! While WordPress itself supports threaded/nested comments, this theme doesn’t. I managed to find a page that provided the code to make comments.php support threaded comments, and it worked perfectly. So I welcomed the return of threads last night, and will be grateful for them as I start to pick up a few more commenters from amongst the fine folks comprising The Bipolar Blogger Network. I really like my theme, so it would have made me sad to need to change it to restore that functionality. My best friend Alicia is probably pleased – she loves WordPress, so me getting somewhere near competent is probably smile fodder.
I guess that’s it for now. I might go try to flop around and see if I can stretch my back out, but I suspect I’ll just end up staring off into the aether. Mmm, aether…
