While Researching Bipolar Disorder…..

No, this isn’t going to be a boo-hoo post.

I’m trying to recognize what drags me down, and redirect my focus.

Right now, all I want to do is whine, which makes for a poor post.

I shall take a wee hiatus while I’m pulling myself together. I have many wonderful blogs to catch up on because I have been reading, and shoving all kinds of information into my memory storage about mental illness and coping. The hard part, is that I have to read again, what I thought was stored, but find it has oddly vanished.

By the way, I have come across some very informative blogs and articles regarding depression and bipolar disorder. Even though I suffer, I understand more about the monster I’m dealing with.

One thing I know, when I have to deal with the below the line mental status—the line that dips into depression side—my sense of humor takes a hiatus, and I must go in search of it. Now, I must also focus on not letting the depression take over, while searching for my sense of humor.

Exhausting.

About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    Ah, the dragon has taken a little nip again, but SHE CAN’T HAVE YOU! It’s just a wee nip! You’re a fighter and smarter than her to boot. Meanwhile, when I’m in that state I find looking for things that are beautiful outside myself and things to be grateful for work faster than trying to recover my sense of humor my dragon obscures. Much love to you today, April.

  3. Just look in a mirror and start snickering, maybe even snorting. It’ll lift you — even if only for a bit. 🙂

      I try that, and there are many times there is something to snicker at. Things are better now with the coping tools, just hope it doesn’t take me too far.

  4. Keep looking April, I believe in your sense of humor!!!

      Thanks. I’m not going to let it keep me down. I just feel as if I may lean to the negative side, and I don’t want to write about that—well, I’m trying to avoid writing about it.

    You have a great sense of humor and I’m sure you’ll find it soon. It’s good that your educating yourself more in the things that you deal with. It never hurts to learn more.
