Ain’t Feelin’ It

Not feeling it today, guys. Again, I ask you to please care for yourself; love yourself. Treat yourselves as kindly as you would treat your best of friends. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงกโค

Maybe you would like to share that goal with me today and tomorrow? I’m trying. Today has been up and down for me, however. ๐ŸŽข๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ

Self Care Brainstorming

Self-Care Ideas.

What do you do to pamper yourself? How do you take care of you each day? What about those really stressful days?

Or, are you negligent in this area? If so, why?

Join the conversation. You are not alone. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ปโžฐ๐ŸŽ—๐Ÿ’š

Dealt Myself a Good Hand

Dealt Myself a Good Hand ~ 8.10.18

Took the day for myself, save a couple of things to help out my mom and son. Mostly, I did what I wanted to do.

Know what it was? About four hours of playing Spades!

I don’t even feel bad. Was fun. I needed to relax and hang out with just me, myself and I. Many of you know that with Bipolar, that last bit can be dangerous, but today was great.

Now, on to a new project.

Take care of yourselves and each other, guys. โœŒ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ™

Are you coming out of a period of Depression? Do you have any advice for acclimating to your surroundings and the people in your life? – The coming up for air, so to speak? What do you do then? –

One thing I do, which may sound odd because during Depression people tend to “sleep” a lot. (It’s really just a sort of sleep. It’s not a healthy rest, and it’s often hiding away.) So ironically, when I’m significantly better, I sleep for about 12-15 hours, and sleep peacefully, absent the nightmares, and wake feeling so much better.
I also hydrate with water and juice.

You guys care to share anything?

Support Resources

Support Resources ~ 7.19.18

So, my last blog entry was titled, “Ugh.” That remains an accurate description of what’s going on with me. In fact, it kind of makes things sound better than what they are, but it will do for this entry.

I’m thinking I need to join a support group in addition to therapy. I need to interact with others and hear different perspectives, different experiences, and so on.

I thought I would list a few websites and ideas for others to locate a support system, especially if he/she does not have a therapist.

ecounseling.com

Additionally, you can seek out support groups and connections through local churches, and you can call offices of local psychiatrists and therapists for their advice.

Let’s help one another. Support one another. Love one another.
