You know your life has become (insert your own word of choice here) when you start comparing loo roll. I have the lovely aloe vera stuff at home but at choir today had to make do with NHS cheapo. My body was not best pleased.
Choir was good, we worked hard but had a lot of fun as per usual. Music helps MH so much. I love my gospel choir, we recently recorded a CD. I also write, record and perform my own music. Got a recording coming up on Thursday, which will be fun. I find writing stuff is a really good way to get all the crap out. I leant the choir master my CD and he liked it, which means a lot. Tho his favourite song was about suicide - "I liked the melody"...
Having another one of those cant sleep nights, wonder if I am going a little hypomanic, will have to check my list of early warning signs and cut out the caffeine. All you BPs out there I strongly suggest you make a list of early warning signs if you haven't done already. It is wonderful to feel more in control of my "bipolar and baggage" with the help of meds and therapy.
So what am I doing to try to make myself sleepy? Hot milky drink? No. Actually getting into bed? No. Relaxing music and lavendar? No. Breathing exercises? No. Tidy bedroom? No! I am watching The Birdcage. So my sleep hygiene is better in theory than in practice. Oh well...
Well I hope you are either all tucked up in bed asleep or having a good day

haha, I love the sleep hygiene comment. It does take more discipline when we are slightly elevated, but well done of being self aware of being a little bit norty. I must admit it does feel delicious to sometimes loosen the reins we have to keep on ourselves to keep ourselves well.
LOVE the levity you bring to your posts... puts a smile on my face! Hope you're soon able to drift to sleep!
