Nerves, meds, and dvd's?

My last few days have been wracked with issues... I've come to a few realizations, however. I stopped taking my "anxiety" pills some months back. What a great stride! Alas, I was a total blithereing idiot all day yesterday, so out came the "overstock"
and I'm back on the pills... Yesterday, I was UNABLE to function most of the afternoon... Too much "overload," I guess, tears of fear, and finally some help from J which was greatly appreciated, because my mind was simply too MUDDLED to process just what
I needed to do next!
Today began with a rather rocky start... but I found that I was able to quell some of the issues, and one by one, I tied up the last few loose ends...
The dvd's that I'd ordered finally arrived today... 2 days past the "expected" date... good, relax over that one! Of course, once I'd FINALLY packed an adequate amt. of clothing into a pretty small bag... short of a sweater which I'll most certainly need
when I hit turf in MI at about 10pm (if not earlier!) Now, I'm comfortable with my "carry on," and am taking on board only a "purse" in addition... that solved the anxieties over carry on vs. checking my luggage... Printed my boarding passes for tomorrow...
That should allow me a little extra "time" before leaving for the airport...
I'm presuming that all of yesterday's DEMONS have been dealt with, so tomorrow my only issues will be the travel itself... (pop another pill!)
So, the eclairs have not been baked... come to think of it, I haven't packed the recipe! Next on my list... like RIGHT NOW! I've decided to get the ingredients after I arrive, and make as I have time... I don't recall if I've shared that my sis will be there
also for the Fri, Sat, and early Sun.
I have however been in touch with my two remaining friends back there, and might just be able to spend a little time with each... Mary Jo on Sun afternoon, and Larry that evening... A tad of history, Mary Jo was born 6mos after me, and so I've "known" her
ALL of her life, and Larry, I met here in Phoenix, only to learn that he was from Lansing originally, and did move back to assist in parent care! Can we say "small world?" Larry now lives only a couple of miles from mom's apt! Major lack of communication
from any other folk I know back there simply indicates that our "aquaintance" has ended... So be it! Were it not for mom, I'd have no reason to return to my "roots." After all, MJ and Larry both know where I live, and are more than welcome to pay a visit!
OOPS, I am forgetting my dad's brother, Uncle Mort and Aunt Donna, but Wendy figures we'll visit them Saturday... Half a day's time round trip, I would guess... which will leave open a bit of time Sat. Maybe I really should contact my sis-in-law, and my
So, friends, I've been having major anxiety issues, am once again popping pills for that, I'm watching one of the dvd's... that helps!
Crazycook is about at the CRAZYEST I've been since the start of my blog... Thankfully, right now, I'm at ease... Tomorrow is "fly day..." which might be a different story, but I am fully armed with plenty of a myriad of pills! Sis and I joked on the phone
yesterday, that even she might benefit from a few of my little pink/white capsules, part of a bottle of wine, and a MAJOR dose of self restraint... as I pointed out to Wendy, "murder" is, I believe, still a CAPITAL OFFENSE!
Well, friends, I HATE TO TRAVEL I've learned of late... so go figure I'm "crazy" right now... I won't be back here until after the 26th...
Be well, all, and I hope to touch base soon!
