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…
Actually, cod, haddock, shrimp, crab, lobster and catfish would all miss the remit of oily fish – the oily fish are salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sprats, herring, tuna or trout. The whitefish only contain oils in their liver and we all know how disgusting fishliver oil is. The others are whitefish or crustacea 😉 /pedant marine biologist <3 The flaxseed oil is a good call though.
I appreciate the pendant in this case, because I truly did not know. 🙂 I pulled cod and haddock out of my ear because they were the first two chip shop offerings that came to mind. I was pretty sure my back home eating didn’t hit the remit either! 😀
