it's been a long while since I have updated where I've been. Well since last year, I've tried to enter a
relationship only to realize I ended up on the other end of the spectrum
again. I was a fallout member to another
type of mental illness: PTSD and a drug user.
I fell into the same pattern of all the fallout people here. Questioning what I could do to help; whether
I was helping enough; did I give enough love; and feeling hurt, angry and
realized that although the name of the issue is different, how I should handle
the situation was the same. Offer help. But
don't let yourself be drowned by the vortex of emotions of someone who will not
help themselves. I feel deeply for this
person, but I have no power to save her.
In the end I had to let her go. I
needed it for my sanity, and my own well being.
am very happy about my career. I
recently got promoted at my job while only working there for 1 year. (Pat
on my own back!) I worked very
hard at moving up, and I will continue to be the best at whatever I do.
wise, I still am on my medication. There
have been only a handful of times where I had a late dosage of all my
pills. Everything I am prescribed has
been timed to the exact hour of consumption.
It is very regimented, and I am thankful for that. I am taking a martial art for almost a
year. This has been great to keep my
mind and body in balance. After 20+
years out of college, I've gone back to nearly the same size clothes as when I
was in school. I lost 5 inches off my
waist, 55 lbs, and my cholesterol is now back to better than being normal. I wished I hadn't thrown out so many clothes,
as they would now fit me, and those styles are back in. C'est la vie. I am still keeping a mood
journal. It is more of tracking when I
feel bad, and whether those feelings are justified. I hope I don't have to adjust my medication
in the future, as it wreaks havoc on my mental capacity while my body
hope everyone is doing well, and please stay strong.
a side note: Has anyone seen the show Homeland? I wonder if I acted like that
before I was diagnosed bipolar. That's a

I feel happiness is a certain desire that is never REALLY achieved. We always seem to strive for more and ignore
what we can appreciate now.
I’m not starving.
I just got a newer vehicle.
I still have all my doctors and therapists at my fingertips and continue
to see them to regulate my medication.
I still have my cat
I have a good job
I can put food on the table
I don’t live in a war-torn country
I have still growth and opportunity ahead of me
I can still give back
any of you say the same thing?
struggles today are my illness is evolving.
I have massive amounts of anxiety.
My medication has been adjusted for a little bit and it seems to help. I now have certain triggers which is
annoying. My boss is not the best
English speaker so his approach is very much a Type 1 personality with a
parental voice. This does to sit well
with me, but I understand what he is saying.
Good thing that years of therapy has allowed me to stop my knee jerk
reaction of being defensive, but sometimes it would be nice to tell a full
complete story without being interrupted.
This sparks my anxiety.
last 2 jobs I was fired so this is a normal reaction, but I can’t show this on
is difficult is my hands begin to shake in fear in which I must grip my chair to
prevent it from showing. The road I take
is still undiscovered. Although it
releases the burden of expectations, it is difficult to know if I am truly
making any more progress.
