Just another not-so-manic Monday

Today my mood crashed.  I hate being bipolar and having simple things throwing my mood for a loop one way or the other.  Teresa hypothesized that my down tumble came from the excitement of if insurance was going to pay for the transplant or if I was ever going to get the transplant to the let down way I was informed, by accident.  I have still never been officially informed that it’s going to happen but had multiple people unofficially tell me of the date.  I am not sure who to blame for not letting me know officially, but Dr. Alkhateeb is the one in charge, so I guess I can blame him.  Anyway, my mood is crap right now, but I will try to keep this blog post from reflecting that too much, just a little.


I didn’t sleep much last night, went to bed about 11:15pm and woke up at 2:20am and couldn’t fall back asleep.  Don’t know what was up with that.  I then napped for a few hours after Teresa left for work, but even then it was only 7:30am to 9:30am.  I finally caught another hour around 1pm, making the grand total for this sleeping block to be 6 hours or so.  I am tired on top of depressed.


We have went out Pokémon Go playing every night since we got back from Mayo.  I wouldn’t be playing it at all if not for Teresa, but I do enjoy spending the time with her.  She is about 3 magikarp away from upgrading her magikarp to Garados.  I’m sure she has more upgrades ready, but that is the big one that is for prestige and the quest.  I have the special pieces for Sloking and Porygon 2 but need a few more of slopoke and porygon than she does magikarp.  Magikarp are much more common.  She is level 25 and I am barely level 24.  She is getting higher level Pokémon than I am.  But it’s all good.  She has the advantage of having a Pokémon rift area around where she works.  I only go hunting in Adel, well and at Mayo/Rochester.


Waiting to hear back from the Bone Marrow Transplant team (forever referred to as BMT team from now on).   Still wondering if we have to attend the silly class on the neutropenic diet.  Also I wanted to confirm that May 17 is Day 0, transplant day and not day -9.  I would know this had I been officially told.


I played Skyrim for a while today, something I haven’t done in a month or so.  I started over yet again.  So HECTIC my cat rogue is only level 9 right now (although he has the xp to be level 11, long story about why I don’t level to 10 right away).  Anyhow, it provided a bit of distraction today when I specifically needed it.


Tomorrow I am finally having that lunch with Drew.  The one we have both cancelled a couple of times.  The one that was originally scheduled for a couple months ago.  We are going to HuHot, because soon I won’t be able to eat raw or undercooked vegetables which is what you basically get at HuHot, thoroughly warmed but not overly cooked vegetables.  So, my plan is to get it while I can.


After lunch I have to come back to the house to meet up with the Dryer Vent Cleaner guy.  He seemed really nice on the phone.  I hope to be in a better mood.  It will suck if I am not.  I can fake a good mood at lunch, but at the house it’s a completely different thing.  Teresa googled how much it would cost and google said between 150 and 200 dollars, the guy I found was only 100+tax so 106.  BARGAIN.  I hope he doesn’t do a half-ass job for the half price.


Teresa wants to put a bunch of the bags of clothes we are throwing away out on the curb.  I am kind of against this, cuz A. Trash doesn’t run til Thursday and B.  It’s supposed to rain Tuesday and Wednesday.  Gonna take these bags of clothes and make them bags of wet clothes. Oh well, she is the boss.  I just cart the stuff around.


I’m feeling a little better, let’s go do physical labor.  Music first
