I had an appointment with the ophthalmologist this afternoon. It's located at the big medical center where I see three of my other doctors. Of course, all the handicapped spaces were taken, so I had to hike a half-mile to the building. When I signed in, you had to put your name and the time of your appointment on the paper. I saw above me that at least 3 other people had signed in for a 1:30 appointment. No biggie, I thought, there are two other doctors in the office. Oh, no! She was the only one there. So I spent most of my time sitting waiting.

After the assistant took me in to do a quick check of my eyes and do the glaucoma test, etc, she had me sit in another area. There was a couple, probably in their 60's sitting there. I sat down on the other side of the end table with the magazines. I closed my eyes and almost dozed off when he started belching. All of a sudden, banjo music started playing, loudly. It was her cell phone. She couldn't get it out of her purse and the caller hung up. Then she belched. Then he farted. I kid you not. I sat there for all of ten minutes. If I had felt better, I would have been biting my lip to keep from laughing.

Finally I got to see the doctor. My eyes are fine, but I do need new glasses. She gave me a prescription and I'll get that filled at Walmart next month. I'll be much cheaper.

Things went well with my therapist today. She was surprised at the change in me in one week. She liked my hair and said I was so much brighter all around than last week, it was like a different person. We talked about the trash can saga, since she's the one who told me to order it from Staples. Then we talked about religion and she clued me in to a place right in the nearby "big city" that might have a lot to offer me. It's new-agey, so I'm a little leery until I know those places are legit. They have a web site, so I'm going to check them out. They offer yoga classes and I'd love to take a beginners class.

I'm a little concerned about the sudden turn-around in my mood, though. I've gone back on my med for what was possible bipolar with hypomania. That means I live in a depressive state most of the time and occasionally have periods of slightly elevated moods. In a "regular" bipolar person, the depressive and the manic states are polar opposites. They are either totally depressed or totally manic. I'm not. My manic states are like a good day for a normal person, so it's hard to diagnose bipolar with hypomania. I was the one who first suggested the diagnosis, but my doctor pooh-poohed the idea. Now, she's sure I was right. Sooooo, if I'm in a manic phase, will the med keep me up or will I crash again? I see that doctor on the 5th and I'm going to ask her. She doesn't know anything that has happened this past week, so we'll see.

Anyway, for now I'm going to try to relax and enjoy the up mood. I've gotten two stories written in two days for my Hurt/Comfort Bingo challenge. I might get all 25 stories done by next weekend. :D
