Bipolar Maniac Update

Well, I’m finally back on it! Writing and reaching out that is!
Recently, I went through a bit of turmoil at home. But, all has found its resolve.

My youngest son recently gave us a scare. He had an appendicitis, and had an emergency removal of his appendix. It almost burst, but luckily we caught it in time.

As for me, I’m doing all well as can be. I’m trying to stay positive. Mind you there’s no drama going on in my life. Home life is good!

Just feeling a bit lost. I’m sort of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Meaning, I’m bored!

No mania, just a little depression and way to much stability. This leads me to feel lost.

I know this will pass soon. I’ve been keeping myself busy. I’ve been cleaning like a mad dog, organizing my house, and running errands.

This is a positive, as not but recently I wasn’t able to leave my house. Suffering from a bit of agoraphobia you could say.

I’ve kept up my therapy appointments, and regularly visiting my psychiatrist. Unfortunately, my next appointment has me renewing my doctors plan. This is a work-up of my way to stay mentally healthy.

I have to do an assessment of my mental status. This part I hate, why? Well, they ask a bunch of personal questions I don’t want to answer. Like, “Do you hear and see things others don’t? “How often do you go into mania?” “How was your up-bring?”

Stuff like that. The appointment lasts a half hour. The down side is this triggers me. I cry the whole appointment. It usually takes me a few days to get over it.

My recent mental status has been a little rocky. I’ve been experiencing psychosis, again. Like it ever goes totally away!

Not even my medications can curb my psychosis. Though, I’m doing my best to manage it.

Though, all-in-all I’m really ok. Besides a little hiccup here and there, I’m good!

I did make it through the winter unscathed. No S.A.D. I’m really happy with that!

I’m working hard on keep up with you all, and continue to write. My apologies for being out of touch for so long.

Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
