No no no, not in that way. No one wants to see that. What I mean, is that we're streaking in that I'm still feeling good and having good days. Yesterday was productive. I woke up a little later than I wanted to, but not crazy late. I got up, felt energized, made and changed… Continue reading We’re streaking!
I actually feel a little bit better today. I'm not saying that the depression is over, but at least for today, I feel better. I got a ton of stuff done at work, I tried to not let the overwhelming anxiety about being moved engulf me, and I just knuckled under and did what I… Continue reading I feel… better today
The title says it all. I had big plans for when Mike went to bed on Wednesday go to the gym, get some laundry done, relax and read.... I went to bed at 6:30. So clearly none of that happened. And then, of course, I woke up around 11:30 and was wide awake. I went… Continue reading I’m just so tired all of the time
I literally got 12 hours of sleep last night - I went to bed at 6:30pm and woke up at 6:40 this morning, just enough time to barely make it to work on time (spoiler: I was about 5 minutes late). It's not that I didn't set alarms. I absolutely did. I just slept through… Continue reading I just want to go back to bed
I really thought I was going to get through this winter unscathed. My mood's been great, sleep has been good, everything was falling into place. The last week or so my sleep has been majorly screwed up. I get either 12 hours of sleep or 5 and then need a nap halfway through the day.… Continue reading The worst part of bipolar disorder is bipolar depression
I've made a lot of posts recently, and will probably continue to post for a bit longer, about the holidays. But let's get back to business for a few minutes, shall we? In a post recently I talked about how I've thought about going off of my meds but won't due to the consequences. So… Continue reading My meds
Hello! I wanted to delve a little bit more into my struggles with mental illness, and I think a good place to start is in my early 20s, about 5-7 years after I initially started (the wrong) treatment. I was somewhere around 21 when I finally got a diagnosis of bipolar, with more to come… Continue reading Time to talk about my early-mid 20s
I meant to post a weekly recap on Saturday but for whatever reason I never got around to it. Oh well. Nothing monumental happened last week, anyway. I've had a lot of time to ponder the state of the union recently. I don't mean the state of the country, although some days that seems to… Continue reading Oops?
It's been a week and a half since the sleep debacle ended. I think my body is attempting to catch back up on it, because now I'm sleeping like the dead. I'm feeling much better, but I'm still tired a lot of the time. Hopefully over the next week or two that will even out… Continue reading When you start feeling some kind of normal again, but also not
Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com Well, we're cruising into three weeks of relatively no sleep, other than Saturday/Saturday night. Unfortunately I can't rely on sleep meds when I have to be up early the next morning for work. I don't trust that I'll wake up in time and I'll spend the falling asleep time anxious… Continue reading A little on insomnia. Alternate title: All I want to do is fucking sleep
