Slept a little later than I wanted to this morning. I can't seem to drag my ass out of bed when my brain knows it doesn't need to be at work. Puts me a little behind this morning, but I'll manage. I can get a few things done tonight when I get home as I'm… Continue reading Making time
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!
Another day another dollar. I managed to get a solid 8 hours of sleep last night, uninterrupted, and in bed instead of on the couch. I got up with some difficulty and a little later than I had wanted to, but I still got up on time and was able to be a little early… Continue reading Finally had a normal sleep
It's not even that you need to find a good therapist, it's more that you need to find one that is good for you. I've gone through a number of therapists over the years; some I saw for a long time, others a short. But it can be hard to find a therapist that you… Continue reading The importance of finding a good therapist
The office. It's amazing. My own space. I'm currently sitting at my brand new desk typing this entry. It feels so wonderful to have an area of the house that's all mine. We've got most of the furniture built (I'm looking at you, printer cart), and I started putting the desk together and hanging stuff… Continue reading It’s more than halfway done
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 can't believe that it's already November 1. Vacation is almost over, and on the whole it was nice. Spent a lot of good time with Mike, got a lot of stuff done around the house. I'd like to say that I feel invigorated, but apparently the curse of vacation still exists and my anxiety… Continue reading Week in Review – 11.1.2020
Fall has always been my favorite season. The temperature is cooling down, leaves are changing, it's hoodie season, and, most importantly, Halloween. But the transition from summer to fall has always been a tough one for me. In many ways, my mood is very much tied to the change of seasons. But while most people… Continue reading As much as I love the fall, I hate the transition
My anxiety is kicking hard core today. I once made the comment that anxiety is how I know that I'm alive. Not wrong. But it's in overdrive today. There are kind of reasons, but this is not a normal response. I feel like I'm in fight or flight mode. And I hate this feeling. Okay,… Continue reading Hello anxiety, my old friend
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?
