Feeling Lost


I sit here staring at a blank page, unsure what to write.  I’m feeling very discombobulated!  For the last few weeks I went into another episode of hypomania.

Today, I’m feeling manic and depressed.  It’s really hard to be confused in mixed states. I’m not sure if I should go shopping or crawl back into bed.

Having mixed states is draining on my mental and physical energy. I should be exercising right now, but don’t have the energy to do so.

I’ve recently been nominated for an  award, which is really cool! I never thought I would be recognized for my efforts in bipolar disorder/mental health awareness. It truly is an honor! Just being nominated has made my day! This has been my focus this week. I’m grateful for this outlet!

Sitting here still staring at this page, and I’m feeling down. Though, I should be overly excited for myself.  Tomorrow, I see my psychiatrist to talk about my hypomania, depression, and medication. I am hoping all will be better with me. I think I’m slowly headed into Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), which isn’t so bad. Why?

Because I’ve got a plan!

I’m going to purchase a “therapy light” to help me get more vitamin D during the winter, that is vastly approaching.  I’m planning on continuing my exercise during the winter. At least 30 minute walks on my treadmill. I will stay positive as can be, take my medication as prescribed, and keep writing in my journal to help keep my mind less congested with thought.

Oh, can’t forget my regular therapy!

I’m feeling better already! I do find it helps to write down my thoughts and talk it over with myself!

If you or someone you know is going through the bouts of Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), take a look at my previous post about S.A.D. I’ve given a through glance with tips on how to cope. HERE

Think Positive

Dr. Stephen Covey

Every human has four endowments- self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.

Demi Lovato

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things.

Elbert Hubbard

Positive anything is better than negative nothing.

Helen Keller

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.

Joseph Campbell

Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.

Leah LaBelle

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.

Norman Vincent Peale

Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Maya Angelou

I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.

Oscar Wilde

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

Maria Robinson

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
