okay my friends, so it looks like I haven't completely lost it yet, I am NOT having a manic episode or anything. As I suspected, my ammonia level is elevated, though not enough to be hospitalized (thank God)! Anyway, for those who don't know what that means (and - what kind of alkie would we be if we didn't have atleast 1 issue with our liver!!!! LOL.) It means that we are supposed to have an ammonia level of between 9 and 35 - 37, mine was 61. (as well as some other poor results). So.....I have to watch my diet and water intake for now. It is probably due to my being so sick the past 2 weeks and not taking the lactulose as I'm supposed to. Whatever, I am okay and that's all that counts. I was scared for awhile there, thought I was losing my mind with the moodswings, but hey, atleast when I was dancing around my living room, I wasn't nude, and NOT dancing with the cats, or howling at the moon, right? LOL. I will, however start seeing my therapist more frequently - and NOT blow her off b/c it's a nice day out!!! Atleast until I'm used to the fact that that bastard is out of prison and he proves to me that he will leave me alone. ya know? Anyway, just wanted to let ya all know............ love, Michelle

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
