I am sitting in front of my therapy light, looking out the window at the somewhat gloomy day and wondering how I’m going to get through this winter, this jobless spell, this life in general. This may be the depression talking, but I seem to have the same struggles over & over. Maybe that’s the human condition. Dammit I would like to rise above certain things for once and for all. Maybe that’s just not possible with Bipolar Disorder. Maybe I have to be patient with myself and not judge my struggles.
I called this post “Trust The Process” because I know there are things I need to do when I am depressed. Sitting in front of this therapy light is one of them. Getting exercise is another. Making connections with people who care about me is essential, no matter how bad I want to isolate myself. Making appointments with my doctor and my therapist are an absolute requirement. Staying off drugs (pot) and alcohol is essential. This is the process. I don’t have to love it. I just have to do it.
Now that I’ve written it down for all to see, I’m accountable to more than just me. I’m accountable to you. Expect to see more posts from me with reports of positive action.
Please share with me your thoughts, coping skills, and news of your life. Thank you for being a part of my life!!! Peaches!
