Sick and Tired and Sick and Tired and…

I’m very sick.

I’m very tired.

I’m very sick and tired.

I wish for physical pain relief.

I wish for emotional pain relief.

It is all unrelenting. And while I don’t have any suicidal plans, I must say that sometimes I wonder to myself if it would be nice to sleep for about 30 years. I mean the kind of quick snap of your fingers that allows you to be gone while having surgery. Then, I would awake for a bit of time with family and friends, and then head on out one night in my sleep.

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.
