MOST RECENT

🌸Spring has historically meant mood swings galore for me (still does). Bipolar with rapid cycling will do that to ya. HIGH LOW HIGH LOW HIGH LOW, 🌸
If I could go back and give myself advice to the person I was 10 years ago it would be this:
Time, patience, awareness, acceptance, fail and get back up, fail again and get back up again. Balance. Slowly but surely. Learn to get good at failing. Take responsibility of your mental health, it’s no one else’s job. Accepting that not everyone gets it, and they never will. Gratitude for small things. Keep doing the next right thing. One step back doesn’t mean you have to take another step backs because “fuck it, I already failed”.

🌱 Lilacs bloomed today, and I can hear thunder rumbling 🌱

Nothing to say today, I'm just calm. Enjoy the thunder, the peacful rumbling of the rain in your roof, and the gentle smell of nature under water... #bipolar #bipolardisorder #faith #hope #loveyourself #cyclothimic #cyclothimicdisorder #mania #depression #hypomania #advices #stayhydrated #treatyourself #treatyoself #triggers #medication #therapist #loveyourself #beyourbestfriend #rainbow #angry #sad #happy #triggers #thunder #rumbling #rain #petricore

This poem follows on from my 2 most recent poems ("How To Look" and "The Devil's Advocate's Nuts")...
.
It's all about how painful experiences can set us on an ever narrower path in our lives...
.
That way, we are allowing pain to not only hurt once, but to continue hurting for a lifetime...
.
The memory of pain becomes the pain...

This follows on from my last poem "How to Look"...
.
Playing devil's advocate for yourself is a useful way to measure what the worst case scenario is, so you can "plan for the worst"...
.
However, the devil's advocate can become a learned response, as the negative experiences in our lives see us looking at things ever more negatively...
.
Take my advice... punch the devil's advocate right in the beans...

The way we view the world is both one of the most important things and one of the most overlooked things regarding our mental health...
.
Every time we are hurt, every time the world "does us wrong", every time a loved one disappoints, we tend to file it away as evidence to support an ever more negative view of the world and our place in it...
.
This can be negative experience at its very worst - traumatic events in our life that reverberate for a lifetime - or it can simply be a bit of negative self talk along the lines of "This always happens. I hate it when..."
.
Subtle traps await us, for we are taught that life teaches us valuable experiences; and so we go about modifying the way we look at the world, without thinking what a limiting and painful process it can be...
.
If we get hurt, we tend to avoid the things or circumstances that hurt us. Bang! Right there, we are on an ever-narrowing path in life, locking out large parts of it because of our experiences of hurt, and how we process them and learn from them...
.
We need to relearn how to look when all we see is darkness, gloom, fear and hate, for this is always and ever only a part of the much bigger picture...

🌻 Enjoy vitamin D 🌻

Vitamin D, among the other vitamins, helps you producing stamina, and positive emotions. Even if you think it's not for you today, even if you feel too down to go out, try to have a nap under the sun

#hypomania strikes again. #nosleep for three days #creativewriting #allnight #bipolar
Would I ever switch?
NO.

MANIC THOUGHTS. My mind is EVERYWHERE. I want to grasp life in the palm of my hands but I don’t know where to start. Everything’s seems so great, beautiful, life is full of, LIFE. This is called mania. But with this new found exploration I feel, I also am not focusing on ANYTHING that I need to be doing, i.e. me righting this post instead of getting ready for work. I feel on top of things, smart, happy, excited, etc. But after these racing “happy” emotions I know it will follow with racing “sad” emotions. I just don’t know when that time will come. I’m fearful of that. This is what it’s like to be bipolar. The sad emotions are going to be very hard to come out of. But just like these happy emotions will pass, the sad emotions will pass too and I then I will try my best to pick up the pieces I call my life and try to be “normal” again. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• This was me before my second hospitalization four days ago. Mania comes first, then the depression. What I was experiencing was rapid cycling. This is when you have mood swings that quickly go from high to low and back again, and occur over periods of a few days and sometimes even hours. Which in my case, they were happening hourly...
