This post was originally posted on another site last year, but has been taken down, so I thought I would post it here.   Oh yes I am very much aware of my mental health.   I am very aware that I take a handful of meds each morning and evening in an attempt to maintain stable mental health.  To …

Sometimes traditional therapy just doesn’t cut it!

Lets face it.  Having bipolar disorder can give us some symptoms that are really, really hard to control, like trouble with our spending habits.  Not all of us face it, but a lot do.  Some call it spending sprees, others refer to it as retail therapy.  Whatever your pleasure, its still the same.  Mine used to be going on my …

Kick ’em when they are down, the only way to survive?

Last night, I experienced a major, MAJOR blow. While I was experiencing a very emotional time in my life and was already hurting and upset about events previously that night , I reached out to someone that “claimed” they cared about me.   I explained my situation, but the response I got, was so far beyond belief of what I …

Possessions. What do they really mean?

As I have been going through my closet lately and pulling out the things that I am selling to help supplement my income, I have found out a lot about my views on possessions.  Many say that possessions are just that and nothing more.  To me, my possessions are not just things, but memories.  Each article of clothing has a …

What IS this glitter revenge I speak of? *from the archives*

Glitter revenge is something I learned from one of my favorite podcasts, Keith and The Girl. Most people hate glitter. Why? Because it sticks to absolutely everything and never seems to go away. When trying to clean it up, it’s sometimes so invisible, unless it hits the light a certain way, that you never can tell 100% if it’s all cleaned up. …

What Can Cure the Blackest Soul?

Just when I thought that I felt as miserable as I could feel, yesterday came and made me feel a million times worse. I crumbled to pieces as I sat there and listened to misrepresentation galore and a collection of preposterous self-made theories being passed off as truths poured out like Kool-Aid into a child’s glass on a hot summer …

Dear Mr. Itstime Tomoveon,

Dear Mr. Itstime Tomoveon, I regret to inform you that it really is not a good idea to call someone 10 years after they have broken up with you to ask if they are still mad at you; especially when upon said break up, you stalked them for months and months and made their life so incredibly unpleasant they moved …

“…because I had never, ever figured out how to f**king deal.”

– Marya Hornbacher said that in her book Wasted. Why is this part of my “favorite things” series of posts???  Because Marya Horbacher is not only an amazing woman and I have a deep admiration for her, but she is an outstanding writer and even more than that, her first book Wasted may have saved my life.  After reading that …

Even more favorite things for surviving the bipolar coaster

A traditionalist?!  ME?!  I THINK NOT!  So when it comes to therapy methods, you better be creative.  Like right now for instance.  I just started physical therapy and become I am hyperflexible (which is what caused the degeneration of the discs in my back etc.) the standard exercises will not work for me.  So, off my therapist goes to do …
