Sick Mind, Sick Body (round and round we go)

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

So, let’s talk about it.

I notice when I am physically sick, say a sinus infection, it gets worse and worse. (Which I guess the same can be said for any Bipolar episode, whether depression, hypomania or anxiety.)

Back to physical illness. Sinus Infection becomes sinus infection, cough, bronchitis, higher fevers, nausea, etc, over three weeks, for example, as I am experiencing now.

A friend and I agree, seems those with Bipolar are sick for a longer period of time, and it’s terribly difficult to recover.

A Simple Truth…Even if It’s a Bummer

“I don’t hate myself. I just don’t want myself.” ~Jen Curry (that’s me)

Sometimes people cannot understand apathy. I experience it in deep Bipolar Depression bouts, and sometimes with anxiety. I have no better way to describe the total lack of interest in life and self.

However, that quote I threw out there is the best way I’ve ever come up with in use of describing it.

It’s Mental Health Awareness Month.

Ever forward.
