This is why I take my meds

Posted by Toph on October 8, 2005, at 15:15:47

Last night my daughter was home from school and we were looking for a table at our favorite restaurant. My neighbor waved us to her table. Her husband just lost his father Wednesday and I have been cutting their lawn while they were in Florida with his dying father. My daughter looked so grown up and beautiful during dinner. She was comfortable with the adult conversation and it was fun having a drink with her at dinner (she just turned 21). This morning I got up after a restless night. I have to release this guy fron his guardianship on Thursday because what I thought was dementia turns out to be Korsokoffs and he's almost recovered. Its the right thing to let him go even though he'll just fall right on his face again. I wish I could put these things out of my mind. Anyway, I got up and worked hard at getting up all the dead grass from the drought so I can seed. I took the dog to the dog park where I have the greatest time and never think of dead grass or dementia only how utterly happy a dog can be running and sniffing and swimming. Tonight the wife and I and another couple that we like a lot are going to see Cats. I asked the kids to scalp us some good seats for my birthday (it still helps to give them a little direction every now and then) so we will be sitting in really great seats. I'm sorry if this is boring, but, for what it's worth, I just want to remind myself and anyone else out there who may be discouraged right now that people with chronic mental illness can lead fairly normal lives. Next time I'm depressed maybe I'll look this up in the archives to recall this weekend. I didn't even mention the Sox sweeping Boston...
