Looking for some f*cks to give

You know that feeling when you’ve been in a rut, and the stifling depression you’ve been managing to hold at bay is pounding at your door, and you feel like you just need a vacation from your life, even if it’s just a literal vacation to the other side of the world? And you know […]

Treading water

I know, it’s been almost three years since I’ve written. I didn’t mean for that to happen. If you have bipolar, you know that when you’re down, the last thing you have energy to do is talk about how you’re feeling, let alone write about it. And when you’re up… well, there are better things […]

A rainy day

For the past five days I’ve spent the majority of my time on my couch or in my bed. I’d love to say that’s just because I’ve been sick, and that may have been true in the beginning, but now it’s becoming more than that. Maybe I’m just feeling sorry for myself because it’s summer […]

I’ve been dreading writing this post. Usually when I’m away from the blog for a long time, it’s because things are either really bad or relatively normal. In this case, being away since September, it’s the latter, thank goodness. Since starting the new job, and getting back into a proper sleep pattern without sleeping pills, […]

Time flies…

… when you’re manic depressive. I mean, shit. I said I’d post more often and now it’s been seven months. I’m still here, still alive and kicking. I’ve had a bit of a go around these last few months, but I’m hanging in, and will post a proper update soon. No more promises that I […]

Anxiety is back… in a new form

I took a personal day from work today to take my cat to the vet. She’s been throwing up a lot lately, and when I got home after spending most of the weekend at my parents’ house, I found that she’d been very sick while I was away. Naturally I was worried, thinking that maybe […]

Happy blog-iversary to me!

Yesterday was officially three years since I started writing this blog. Though my posts have tapered off both in how often I write and in the “educational value” I was hoping to provide, I’m hoping to change both of those things this year. Since things are going well for me right now, the plan is […]

Feeling pretty good actually

Things have taken yet another turn. This time it’s for the better, which is unusual for this blog — so I’m happy to be writing a relatively positive post! Most of it stems from the fact that I got a new job, which I’m really happy with. It’s at the parent company of my old […]

Single. Unemployed. Bipolar.

I know, I said I’d be back soon and I wasn’t. Life has thrown me yet another curveball. I was laid off — again. That’s right, I lost my job for the third time in four years. I was doing pretty well about all of it until today, the second day of unemployment. It’s not […]

I’m still here

Just a really quick post to let you all know that I’m still alive. I’ve gotten a few emails in the past couple of months from readers concerned that I haven’t posted since March. First of all, thank you for your concern. Sometimes I forget that this blog is out there for anyone to see. […]
