Today’s Lesson . . .

Today was one of those days where I couldn’t do anything right.  I was in a fog.  My brain just wasn’t firing on all cylinders.  This freaks me out.  I feel out of control and totally scared that I’m going to get in trouble with my boss.  What can I say to him – that my brain isn’t working right?  This is just so outta hand.  I have new compassion for people whose brains move slowly, because I have now joined their ranks.  I need to remember to always be kind, be kind, be kind, not impatient, with those who are struggling.  Because it is so much harder to be the one who is struggling.

  1. This is what happened to me. When you tell people that your brain is not working right, they seem to treat you worse. Or we are just so sensitive during a mania. Work can present such a extreme stage for mania. Work is also something we do everyday. I just lost my job due to my Bipolar disorder. I was a Food and Beverage Manager for four years years with a short split between cause I freaked and quit and then went back again 8 months later. I struggle with work the most. I don’t know if your a boss, but let me tell you it gets worse when you are. The pressure is great. Everyone depends on you to be a problem solver. Not an easy task. Hang in there and think of how Greatful you are to have your job. Don’t blame the people around you. Oh and my meds help 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your comments. I am definitely grateful for my job, although I hate it at the same time, I don’t know what I would do without it. Make sense? Well whatever that’s my life. Thank you again for sharing your experience. I am sorry you lost your job. I worry about that every day. I don’t know what I’d do if I lost my job.
