But for now, I will.


I'm sorry that you are feeling that way bipolar123. The way you describe

I have a lot on my plate and sometimes it just gets to me. I feel like I can't do it anymore.


that is something I can relate to. Some days whether I'm stable or not, it just feels like too much. My thoughts go "dark." I call it "dark moods." I personally think it's alright to feel this way so long as you bounce back up eventually and you feel better. I usually feel better in a couple of days. I prioritize and do only the necessary things then I also start to do things which can lift my spirts up like listening to soothing music, or watching a good movie. I just take time out just for me to help me along to feeling better. Hugs if wanted.

I'm keeping my head on straight, but struggling to do so. Looking forward to moving houses this summer or fall. I can't wait to have my own damn room again.

Couldn't get a hold of my dad on Father's Day. Nobody would answer, so I left a message. He called me today telling me a bunch of $#!T my mom had fed him to keep him paranoid that I was against him for whatever idiotic reason.

He told me he's off his meds except for blood pressure. He doesn't trust his dr, and my Munchhausen's by proxy mom isn't about to make him take them.

I feel like I divorced my mom and my manic depressive dad is the kid that we fight over. I don't get to see him without her abusing me, but he can't live on his own and she abuses him. Also what's worse is he trusts her for the most part, so I can't get him to see how bad she is/he's too depressed to care. :cry:

Thanks Quiet girl.

I live to fight another day. It just is so much. I have multiple sclerosis as well and I need to attend to that with a treatment change.

Plus my kids have issues.

It is a lot of "hidden" illnesses.

There is no mood. There is no space, there is no heaviness, lightness, darkness.
I feel fulfilled.
I guess that's good.

There is a national bureau of investigation checking up on possible terrorism less than 1km away from where I'm sitting.

Don't..

Confused/conflicted. I feel like I do when I stride into a room with purpose and then can't remember why.

Also apprehensive.

Can't put me finger on what lies in store, But I fear what's to happen all happened before...

Slight sulk, tired, numb and less apprehensive but that is still there. Head fog and ringing (haven't had a break from that in about 15 years) are at above average levels but not too much.

I think the apprehension is to be expected. Going to support group tonight. I over shared last week when I was a genius and I dismissed a couple of opinions with hand waves and rolled eyes. Maybe more than a couple.

Tomorrow morning I see the new pdoc. The one thing I did get talked into both here and at group was being totally open and not controlling the narrative. I have mixed feelings about having filled out the information while feeling so clever. I included a personal history that I edited into the wee hours (because that's when people have the best words :roll: ). I think part of me knew if I waited I would talk myself into revealing only what I think is enough as well as forgetting some things if I did it in more of a rush.

Speaking of forgetting things, I think one of the most important advances in medical care in the last few years is the patient portal, especially if you have a provider who is responsive. I have posted "oh yeah, I forgot to tell you..." many times; sometimes resulting in a different or additional prescription or being asked to come back in as a quick off the books work in that the front desk never would have given me.

On edge, overwhelmed and feeling the need to be more or less withdrawn. My psychologist is back in town after leaving for two weeks. I have a ton I need to talk with her about, but my mind has been refusing access the thoughts.
