It’s been a good couple of weeks for me. The Buspirone is completely out of my system now, so I no longer have those random urges to punch people in the face! 😀 My anxiety has decreased exponentially and my mood has become more stable. Thanking the Lord for that. My psychiatrist and I have decided to bypass any new meds for now and just stick with my depression meds. I’ll keep working on ‘little life changes’ to boost my moods when I’m in a funk. We’ll take it from there. Sounds like a plan to me. The less meds, the better.

I won a book bundle giveaway from our very own Lexa Cain, which included her novel Soul Cutter and three short stories (Whoop!), and a book thong (it’s like a book mark – mind outta the gutter people) and two personalized pens in a swag package from author, friend, and fellow blogger Melissa Maygrove (Yay!) Click on their links to read about the winners and check out the prizes we won.

I also won four books in various Goodreads giveaways I entered. That’s a record for me. Oh, snap! I’ll be doing a lot of reviews on lilicasplace over the coming months!

My daughter is coming up to see me tomorrow to spend the day with me. She can’t come Friday night because she has her EMS overnight shift :D, and her ride will be too busy on Sunday to bring her back. But I’ll take it! Any time with my baby is good time!

Most important of all, I’m STILL ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS!! Yeah, Baby!!

What have you celebrated this week? Anyone else win any goodies lately? 




About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

    Good to hear your mood is stabilising. I have bipolar disorder and know how awful fluctuations can be.

    Congrats on winning all that loot! Awesome. I rarely win anything. 😦

    • Thanks Shah, I appreciate that. It’s rough sometimes, but it’s encouraging to know that a lot of others understand what I’m feeling, even though we have a different diagnosis.

      Aww, then you need to enter more contests and giveaways! Lol. I rarely ever won anything either. Lately I’ve been entering more. 🙂 Hugs. Eva


  2. I agree – the less medication the better. I don’t like to even take aspirin.
    Awesome that you won so many cool books and stuff!
    Now, enjoy your Saturday with your daughter.

    What one person can do another person can do. Its all in a state of mind. Success begins with a fellows will – so to quote Captain Picard, make it so!
