Today I was not very anxious. I did feel like fainting when I woke up, though. My head felt heavy and cold, my hands felt cold. Upon standing, I swayed and saw black. So after breakfast (oatmeal) and not feeling better, I had some chicken, which helped very quickly. It had been a couple days since I'd had meat. I'm super reliant on it. I'm going to try rice and beans since it's supposed to also be a complete protein. I felt tired from the Valerian I took earlier and laid down in bed for awhile. I finished reading a book. I felt steady enough to shower and afterwards I was freezing cold.

I received Cinderella the dvd/Blu-ray combo in the mail today, as well as my neuro/cardio bill. I was charged nothing for neuro, presumably because I had Medicaid as well as Medicare then. I was charged $80 for cardio, after I was taken off Medicaid. I just paid the bill to not deal with the hassle, though I hope I get re-approved for Medicaid. I think with my bank statement I have a good chance.

Michael and Dan went on a trip up to eastern Wisconsin, just past the Illinois border, looking at a bunch of stores. I was picked up by our friend Kat and brought to her condo where a group was playing Scrabble and Bananagrams and I watched (by choice). We talked and I had peppermint tea and we ate veggie pizza. I ate three pieces. I don't know why I didn't get full sooner... And now I'm paying for it with bad gas -- bloated and abdominal cramping. I'm drinking more peppermint tea to see if that helps.

Now I'm back at home, drinking tea, about to take my meds, and I've turned on the heat to 68 degrees. I'm probably going to sleep in the clothes I'm wearing and just take my bra off and wear lots of layers (I'm wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt, thermal leggings, lounge pants, as well as a fleece sweater. It's probably about time to wash and put away the new jersey sheets and put on the old flannel sheets. Then eventually the fleece.

My goals for tomorrow:
-Pick up clutter
-Put old vacuum into my brother's car, as well as other recyclable electronics
-Rearrange bookshelves and get rid of more books possibly
-Work on CBT book
-Journal
-Read
-Watch movie
-Back up everything onto my external hard drive
-Clean the litterboxes
-Dust
-Email/Internet stuff
-See if I have any more clothes to get rid of
-Put away/break down boxes

I've broken a couple rules and bought myself 2 $0.01 books from amazon.com the past 2 days. They require $3.99 shipping, so really it's $8.00. I already have books to read!>_< I'm also craving clothes, but I just bought clothes. So maybe this is less superficial of me? We can only hope... I also finished buying Michael's birthday presents and paid my hospital bill and ambulance bill. I paid rent and credit card and netflix. My major bills in waiting that are unavoidable: electric, gas, Valium, and cat food. Other things I will spring for are: food/coffee out with friends and the pumpkin farm. Maybe I will find myself up to buying some Christmas presents early. Who knows? I will wait until later in the month in case of more unexpected bills before I buy anything unnecessary and unexpected. I'd love to use my credit card barely at all so next month I have more money in my checking account and can pay back my $80 for the external hard drive back to my packet of savings. That would be a good start on my quest for saving. A quest that mostly will have to wait until after Christmas.

Day 17 – Your favorite memory

When I was 2 years old and at my father's best friend's daughter's 5th birthday party. Night had fallen and country music was playing in the background. I was playing on the grass and in the drive way. There were fireflies. It seemed like a magical night.

Day 18 – Your favorite birthday

My eighth birthday when we went to a roller skating rink with girls I went to school with (who actually were a part of the We Hate Bridgett Club, but I still liked them, and were glad they came to my party). We had ice cream cake with chocolate cake and mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Yesterday was pretty good, but ordinary. Today has been a pretty great day for my birthday!♥ I have some bad memories around this time of year, but last year's birthday was good and this one was better in some ways. And it's not over yet, so hopefully it will continue to be good!

It was quite snowy, but Michael and I were able to pull out of the driveway to drive to the movie theater. I wore the dark blue floral Aerie dress that Michael gave me for Christmas, a tank top, black leggings, and a pink and white scarf. I wore my winter boots and heavy coat. Michael had given me eyeshadow for my birthday and let me have it early, my mother gave me boots early, and my brother gave me a coat early, so no presents to open today, which was fine.

We went to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D. It's a great movie! I didn't care about the 3D part -- I love Disney movies. And they had a short Tangled after-story shown before Beauty and the Beast. It was cute.

Then Michael and I met my mother, brother, and Dan (friend of Michael's and mine) at a Japanese restaurant in Lisle that served hibachi. There were tables each with their own cooking area for the chef, where he cooked everything right in front of you. The lunch meals came with miso soup (my first time having it! It was good!), salad with a ginger dressing (also good, even though I usually don't like ginger), then the main entree -- wheat noodles mixed with vegetables, fried rice, and meat/fish. I had hibachi sirloin steak cooked medium. My mother had basically the same thing, but with Teriyaki sauce. They gave us a ginger sauce and horseradish for dipping. They also had green tea, which I didn't have because I knew I didn't like it. I'm really bad at eating with chopsticks:P It was really good food, though, and tons of it. I ate all my food, minus the mushrooms and some vegetables, and my mother's noodles. My mother, unexpectedly, paid for all our meals!

I went out later with my mother to Fannie May (a candy store) and my mother bought me 1/2lb (two 1/4lb pieces) of maple nut fudge. One is in the freezer now. I will allow myself a tiny piece each day. I still have to exercise tonight. Dan is over right now, though he works tonight.

I received a manga in the mail (Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Raising Shinji Ikari Project) and a ring and note from one of my aunts. The ring has a purple stone in it (amethyst?) and fits on my index finger. She misspelled my name on the letter:(

Hopefully the rest of today goes great, too! I'm going to try and think of myself as "leveling up" with each birthday instead of just getting old. I've had several friends refer to birthdays as that before...

I went from being in a terribly depressed mood the past three nights into an incredibly good mood tonight! I feel guilty for spending so much money this month on things I didn't need and I really want to save a little bit of money, but Christmas adventures seem more important! I want to go to a German Christmas festival in Chicago and look at all the crafts and other assorted goods. If I see something I really like and it's not too expensive Michael will buy it as an early birthday gift<3 My birthday is January 13, though I was due Christmas Eve (December 24). I also want to eat all the German foods listed by the vendors! I'm usually not an adventurous person when it comes to food, but I want to try the different desserts and meat-filled buns. Not the cheese or vegetable-filled buns, though. I also wish I could try the German hamburgers and potato pancakes. And I have a big craving for bratwurst now. I'm hoping this week I can get my mother to take me to the grocery store so I can get bratwurst and buns to put them on. That way I won't be tempted at the Christmas festival to get something I already know I like and can get at other times. Same with cheese strudel (if it is what I think it is, it is something cheese-like that I do consume). We might be able to go to this Christmas festival earlier in the day and then go to Lincoln Park Zoo at night for their lights festival (like the Brookfield Zoo thing I just went to). I will have to withdraw more money, but it would be worth it. At least I am 100% done with Christmas presents and just have to wrap some.

Also Michael was going to buy me the anime Romeo x Juliet for my birthday, but I can watch it on hulu.com and will only choose that over other things if I really, really like the series and feel I will rewatch it many times. I usually dread my birthday, but tonight I feel excited about it. Zyprexa must make me rapid cycle or something, because I am feeling insanely good right now. Though usually on Zyprexa my mood is stable (it's not like my mood is going up and down so much on a regular basis).

I'm still anxious and overwhelmed, but there are a few good things that have happened. I convinced Michael to call his dentist's office this morning and they are there today until 1pm. Michael has a 12:30pm appointment. Also Michael's mother is going to talk to their family doctor (whom she is friends with) to see about getting a generic Ritalin prescription (which hopefully Michael's mother could pick up after work on Monday). Then hopefully that will be cheaper and Michael can get his ADD medication and come to my house Monday night or Tuesday.

I bought some fleece sheets on-sale from Kmart and they were on sale for $20. This is what they look like: http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_048B017556700001P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1

My mother had a hard day yesterday, too. She will probably pick me up around 6pm. Michael has a Coldstone Creamery coupon for free ice cream because of his birthday and he's going to let me use it. I hope it comes with a free topping, but even if it doesn't I will still get cheesecake ice cream. I still feel hungover from Klonopin, but I ate granola for breakfast which seems to have helped a bit. I have to learn how to cope with problems better...

This is the transcription of my voicepost on LiveJournal:

Hi, I haven't recorded a voice post in quite a long time. I'm not very comfortable talking. Today is my 27th birthday. I was given a few gifts from Michael and my mother. We're going to go to a bar and restaurant tonight that has a Florida theme. And my friends April and Phil will probably be there, too, which is nice because I haven't seen them in awhile. I was given "The Legend of Zelda" tv series, the cartoon that was on when I was a child. I really wanted that and I just came across it recently. And I have another "Once Upon a Time" book which is a book based on a fairy tale. It's a series. And I don't know what else to say really. Today has been an okay day so far. Michael is baking me a cake. So I hope you all are doing well. Talk to you soon! Bye!

Today is my birthday, which I usually hate, but I've been given great gifts this year;-) I kind of wish I could erase most of last year and be turning 25 instead. Oh well. I will be getting food from Red Robin (probably take out) and I still need to go take a shower.

My cell phone is really messed up right now and I'm embarrassed that it's sending out multiple text messages>_< I might get to use my mother's "back up" phone as soon as later today. I get a "new" phone in ten days.

Thank you for the happy birthdays from those who have already commented!:D I hope today goes well!

I had a major meltdown today over finances. I already spent too much this month (especially on gifts) and then the computer problems happened. And the news kept getting worse and worse. The latest is that my processor is bad and that's what destroyed my mother board and it's just as cheap to get a new and better motherboard with a new processor as to get a new processor by itself with my "new" yet old motherboard. $130 on top of the money I already wasted buying a motherboard and an adaptor, so more like $200. I freaked out. We went to the store so I could buy a thumb drive and I was acting really bratty and stubborn. I started hitting my head in public, additionally.

Later on I apologized to my mother and she told me she was giving me "a very good birthday" by paying for all my computer stuff! I offered to chip in and she said she'd see what the final cost will be. I'm still uptight but this greatly relieves me. I keep trying to save money and problems keep happening.
