Toad’s Weekly Assessment #3

I’m at my parents’ house at the moment, so I don’t have access to my spreadsheet program. I will have to create and add my graph later. The second half of the week has been much better than the first half since I went over to my parents’ house. I have been able to relax and get a bit caught up on the laundry. We have even been able to inch Little Bear’s sleep to later in the evening each night. As of Friday night we got him to stay up to 7pm. Hopefully he won’t be waking up at 2am tomorrow morning.

  • Missed my meds, missed Little Bear’s meds – paying for this I as I write this at 4:3oam Tuesday morning: he is pinging off the ceiling and keeping my second son awake – I don’t particularly feel tired either but I am annoyed as shit, I have only myself to blame, I’ve got to make sure the meds don’t get missed anymore

Meals

  • I only ate a few pickles and some chips
  • 2 cups of coffee and 2 glasses of water since midnight
  • I didn’t realize exactly to what extent the Topamax has been killing my appetite until I started this, I was a sporadic eater before but now I’m eating next to nothing. Now I’m really wondering why my cholesterol was so high that last lab.
