    Talk about not seeing that one coming!  Never been at 100 score before, signed on tonight at 97, then--COOL!!!

    And of course I've gotta post a quick thread before that number vanishes!

    Let's see...my wife, Pam, told me today that we've actually found the RIGHT balance to her medications, finally, and that she feels NORMAL for the first time in at least 20 years.  Also finished the French drain around the house today. 

    Gotta be some sort of connection...big_smile

      Congratulations  Ghost you'll always be a 100 to me! I can't imagine how you must feel.
      OOOH!  I wish I could do all the cute animations or give you a card, but it always just comes out gibberish or nothing.

    I know when I got my first 100 I was thrilled!  And when I got the $1000 check for attaining it I was even more thrilled!

    Not on here, though.

    Please tell Pam that I'm happy for her.

    Thanks, all.  Pam is still up with me, having a good visit-with-each-other Friday night for a change (she's usually asleep much earlier), so she got to share the joy when that "100" popped up. 

    Actually, her share was probably close to 90% of that there joy, at least from the way she reacted! lol

    Wyanjen, I just read your post to Pam.  She's smiling and thoroughly agreeing it's a wonderful feeling...big_smile

    Earnest, you're dead right about those meds.  A big one indeed.  Pam says to thank you for understanding that.  She just added:  "It just feels so f****** normal!  I'm so blessed!  I've been blessed!  I want to live!  I don't want to kill anybody!  I don't want to die!" (Etc.)..."I'm so lucky!  Thank God for Doctor K*****!" (Who insisted she go to the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner who did finally get those magic meds mixed right.)

    Congrats to both you and Pam. My sister is bi-polar and I know how important the right mix of meds is - and how hard it is to find somedays.

      Ghost32posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Nelle, this marvelous occurrence (getting the meds right) is even the more remarkable after the extreme difficulty we had finding any doctor who would treat Pam in 2009.  Between April and the first of December, she had no medical care whatsoever--the fact that she survived that being quite the testimony to her innate toughness. 

      In the end, obviously, it was worth the price of the whistle to wait until she could find the RIGHT doctor. 

      And then some. big_smile

    Good job, Ghost! I can get 100, but I can't keep it long.
    So glad to hear the good news about Pam!

    Nice one, Ghost - I have seen you at 100 a few times, but you were probably in bed. Well-deserved smile

    Great news about Pam - it seems that things are coming together for you. Best of luck with living the dream big_smile

    Ghost32posted 8 years ago

    Sufidreamer, thanks for the insight.  I didn't know that!  Could have been in bed, or working on building the house, or chasing meds for Pam...big_smile

    Hey, Fiery, thanks--and hey, glad to see you!  Was wondering where your volcanic persona was hanging out lately!  (Guess our ships weren't passing in the night or something like that.) lol

    Habee, I'm pretty sure staying at 100 over time will be just as challenging as getting there in the first place, for sure.  So let's just hit it at the same time, and they'll have to invent a "200" score for us...right?  lol

    In the meantime, best get some sleep.  I'm reasonably certain it'll register as a "dream" in the morning, so it's a good thing this thread will be around to prove I didn't imagine the whole thing...right? big_smile

    Hey Ghost - well done! It's a good feeling isn't it? I'm sure I've seen you at 100 before, but like Sufi says you must have been doing something else, lol. Good on you anyway, you certainly deserve it smile
