Healed!

Well, almost.  Jason is doing so much better.  He's been sleeping and eating a lot and doesn't seem to be having any lingering affects of the allergy or meds.  Tomorrow we'll see a doctor to follow-up and get final permission to go on the cruise.  Then Sunday, it's off to the great North - southern Alaska, actually (Glacier Bay, Sitka, Ketchikan, Juneau, Victoria and Seattle).  

I'm practically healed too, mentally I mean.  I saw my psychiatrist today, and he had me review the symptoms of OCD.  I had 1.5 and you need at least 4 for a diagnosis.  So, I'm healed!  Not really, but I'm greatly improved than when I started back in January.  I'll continue seeing him and taking the meds.  We're working on acknowledging and dealing with natural anger.

And no new shoes for me.  I rediscovered a pair of heels that used to hurt my big toe but no longer do, so I'm going to use those on the cruise and use the shoe money to pay for a hot stone massage instead.  Lovely.
