I have to pull a Whoa, Nellie! That’s the problem with Bipolar….mania. In my case I have what is called hypomania which only means that my manic phases aren’t as grandiose as that of someone with Bipolar I. Bipolar II means depression is a little more problematic. I am hoping that I simply feel good and that I’m not succumbing to the mania.
Slow and steady.
Anyway, I feel like I want to zip around and catch up on all the crap I’ve neglected but there is so much! I woke up at 4:30 yesterday morning and I’m feeling too much of an urge to compulsively write.
Some of you may remember the cartoon, The Jetsons. I don’t know, it may have been remade so that another generation could enjoy it. I was never much of a cartoon watcher but The Jetsons, I liked.
They had a robot, Rosie, who waited on them and they had all kinds of space age stuff. They could push a button and be served food through a cabinet door (I believe), and Rosie cleaned up after them. They teleported through space in saucers and tubes but really didn’t do much of anything for themselves.
I wish I had a pod that I could step into each morning that would clean, dry, clothe, apply makeup, and fix my hair for the day. I suppose brushing my teeth should be added to the list as well.
I’ve discovered that getting ready to go somewhere is one of the many reasons why I dread grocery shopping.
Anyway, I got dressed and all that crap and went to the grocery store yesterday. I panicked as I entered the parking lot because it was full of cars. Luckily the cars mostly belonged to inventory takers, but they tended to be more on the side of aisle hogs than any shopper.
Ha! That reminds me of a t-shirt I must get. The front says, Sometimes I get road rage while walking behind people in the grocery store. I did learn something though, I can call my beer belly a sugar belly, who knew?
So…………I’m going to take a deep breath, inhale as much positive ju-ju that I can, work on my mindfulness, and prepare myself in order to fight against a depressive episode. Maybe the time between will be longer and maybe the medication I am on at the present moment might be the right tweak.
