Dear Friends, I suck.

Dear Friends, Yes.  I admit that I have become a shithead lately.  I have crawled into a cave and found myself a nice cozy blanket in there.  No, it’s not warm in there.  No, it’s not fun.  No, I don’t want to be there, but it has become my self preservation and coping mechanism.  If I just stay in the…

Whoa! Take A Step Back Hot Mess!!!!!!

I guess when you can’t focus or concentrate on something, it’s an indication that something else is on your mind. This weekend, I had a lot of reality checks (these past few months have been a lot of that!!!! But, better now than never!) Sometimes we all need a good swift kick in the ass or a good reality check. However,…

I thought I could fly……..

Yes, the Bipolar Hot Mess doesn’t know EVERYTHING.  I do fall myself.  Lately, it seems that I am an expert at falling, or failing. I think that I am doing fine and I keep pushing and adding on more until the ultimate crash and burn.  Why don’t I ever know my limit and stick to it???  So, the advice I…
