getting off tablets

Quote From: sunshine80

no tablets but it is midnight at my house and I am awake.  Get the "Sleep Fairy" for your daughter.  It will help.  I pick up little tidbits here and there about organic things!  Let me know if you can't find it,

(((((((HUGS)))))))

I am glad that you had a good night with Stacey!  Talk to the parents when you get the Sleep Fairy in aftercare (maybe you can write it off as a busines expense) and tell them the story if all of the children are well-rested they will be better and do better.  Also Teach a little Flying, like using the timer!  My kids are almost hooked on it!  I am also glad that you feel good today.  As far as the tablets go have you consulted your doc before cutting dosage?  See what he says.  I am good today.  Taking the baby steps to help me re-establish my routines.  I am also trying to quit smoking cigarettes.  Lots of love to u 2!!!!

havent implemented the timer yet, but will definitely do so. my 12yr daughter Faith & hubby is getting use 2 the shining sink. and reminds the friends & family 2 keep it that way! they hate dirty dishes standing around and NO water marks on the sink! I LUV IT! even my mom is adapting 2 this new idea! she also now less stressful! u remind me of my mom & dad who struggled for years 2 quit smokin but it was nt easy. if u put ur heart 2 it u will b able 2 quit. they only got wakeup call when it affected their health. my dad died of heart disease 14yrs and my mom has lung problems. not much dr can do 4 her but she's ok. dont wait 2 long. ur such an inspiration 2 alot of people out there. we appreciate u! take care.

Now i'm getting tears.  My greed is making me stop.  Cash is low, and I have goals and i am determined to take care of the things that need done.  No more wasting that $!!!  Write to Flylady and let her know she is global and she has flybabies in SA!  She will love it!

You make a big difference every day for the children.  I am so impressed.  What goals and dreams did you miss out on?  Maybe I can help to make that possible too.  I have lots of ideas.  I hope to be a Liscensed Clinical Social Worker, I don't know if I already told you that, but the quitting is still firm in my mind.  Those cigarettes don't do anything for me.  Currently my job is a waitress.  I am on medical leave due to a bipolar episode, stinks, but life goes on.  At least I am able to spend summer break with my children.

1st time i hear of manic depression. well i always wanted 2 b an artist, singer... although both parents work, finance was a problem 4 further studies. i continued painting and selling it and still sings @ weddings and birthday whenever im invited. my BIGGEST dream is 2 publish a book which i wrote for the past 4 yrs. editing needs 2 b done. the theme of book: True forgiveness brings about inner healing. otherwise i am content with what im doing now, working with kids & performing as clown @ kiddies parties whenever needed! have a great and da lotsa love!
