12.6.18 blog entry.
Hello, everyone. Hope you are well. I’m feeling quiet these days. I’m not depressed…I don’t think so, anyway. I am certainly struggling with chronic pain and illness, but I’m getting through it. My son has really stepped up and is helping us quite a bit.
Looking forward to Christmas. We’re thinking Mexican food.
Does anyone else do something that’s not exactly traditional for Christmas Day Meal?
We usually open gifts Christmas Eve night, attend a church service, and then on Christmas Day have tacos, taquitos, chips & salsa (you get the idea) and then hit a movie or two. Anyone have a film recommendation?
Holidays can often times be very difficult for those of us with mental illness. How are you guys doing?
Take care of yourselves and each other. 🎅🙏❤💚🎄🌮🌯
11.28.18 blog entry ~ Oh What a Difference
Twenty-four hours ago I thought I would get nothing accomplished today and just prayed I would be able to get out of bed this morning. I was dealing with depression, anxiety and paranoia was trying to set up shop in my mind. Today, a totally different person. This version got things done, got above and beyond bonus type stuff done and feels well.
With Bipolar, I always know what goes up must come down and all that jazz. I know 24 hours can make all the difference, and oh, what a difference…problem being that it cuts both ways.
I get done what I can on the good days and take the win.
Take care of yourselves and each other. ✌💛🙏💙

11.27.18 blog entry, To the Pillow, I Go
(Warning: curse word ahead.)
I’ve just discovered a most marvelous idea. Take my pillow to the restroom, turn on the fan and shower, and scream like a motherfucker into it!
Helps for a bit.

I survived. I thrive. If I stumble, I take two more steps. If I fall from a blow, I get back up. Every time. 💪🖤✌
