Coping With Manic Depression

Late last year I was diagnosed with manic depression and OCD. I was told that basically I would have extreme highs and lows in my moods, be majorly happy and then majorly depressed. I've been doing well, I thought, dealing with it.

Until Wednesday morning. I woke up with a headache, and Aaron was being, well, Aaron. Goofy and happy in the morning. But because my head was splitting I reacted to him being upbeat in a way that was way out of proportion to what was going on. Without using any words that I used, lol, I'll tell you I basically bit his head off for being loud. I had hurt my back in the middle of the night, (don't ask) and was dealing with that, and was majorly angry that he didn't ask why I was hurting. I started yelling at him for basically no reason, until he had no choice but to raise his voice to try and calm me down.

Neither of us handled this situation well. In the days and weeks previous to this, I have been very upbeat, goofy, singing silly songs, pokin…

Why Parents Drink

I had to post this. I recently got it in an email from my Mom. You will soon see why I had to post it.

Why Parents Drink

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to
see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to "Dad".

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with
trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you.
I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you..

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all
her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it' s not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant.

Stacy said that we will be very happy..

She owns a trailer in the wood…

Our Newest Baby

We ran into a couple at the lake that had Jack Russel mix puppies for free. That was a few weeks ago. Today we picked up our new boy. His name is Bugsy, like the gangster. Lol. Aaron hit that on the head. I wasn't planning on getting a puppy today, but he surprised me, and now we have a baby! He was born on May 13. Say hi!

For The Record

I hate studying. Why can't this stuff just metamorphasize into knowledge in my brain? I know I spelled that wrong, but hey. Whatever. Right now I am so over run with prokaryotic cells, and eukaryotic cells, and endosymbiotic theories that I can't be bothered with spelling things right.

Remember Kris: This is the way to vet school. Breath deep, it's gonna be a long haul.

Farmer Huck

This is my sweet Farmer Huck. These were taken today. Is he a Bama man or what?!?

My Goofballs

So apparently, Josh, my stepson, AND Daniel my oldest stepson, BOTH passed their EOCs. WAY TO GO GUYS!

As for me, my professor forgot the test at her house. No biology test for me today. It will be Thursday.

Oh well. Ashley, my step daughter, my Pretty Phillip, finally has a blog. You can reach my goober butt on my favorite links.

My oldest is Daniel, to the right. Josh and Ashley are above. They are all amazing kids.

School, The Animal Shelter, and More

Well, I started school last Tuesday. I am taking biology and orientation (I keep forgetting I even have that class, that's how easy it is.). I have my first biology test this upcoming Tuesday. Lectures are 4 hours. Wow right?

I volunteered at the animal shelter finally. I had my first day yesterday, and got to learn all about the shelter. When you walk in looking for a dog or cat, you see the "adoptables". There are generally, in a small place where we are, around 15 or 20.

When you go into the back, there are around 60 or 75 animals. Most are strays. Some were dropped off due to the economy. Some are puppies or kittens born in shelter.

When a momma comes in pregnant, she has the babies, they spay her and then pick the two most adoptable, healthy babies from the litter, and euthanize the rest.
I learned that from an momma and her offspring can produce 67,000 animals in just 5 years. Most of those get euthanized, if they make it to a shelter.

I also learned that once an animal…
