Blessed

I just have to write and tell how blessed I am right now.  My mood has been so stable this spring.  I’ve had one small episode of likely depression and another of anxiety, but other than hat, this spring has gone so well for me–much better than usual.  I used to ride a rollercoaster every year from February to May.  Sometimes up but mostly down, terrifyingly fast downswings.  But not this year.  I still have about a month to go but it’s not going to be long before I’m out of my danger zone and back into the summer swing of things–resting at home with my kids and vacationing with them come June.  We’ll have my oldest at home all summer, we think, so that will be a change of pace.  We will have to readjust to her, but right now I feel hopeful about just about everything.

Realistically, I know I have to watch for getting TOO high.  And I know the worm can turn just as quickly as I can say the words, “I am truly happy.”  Bob’s father is going to start undergoing his cancer treatment today at MD Anderson in Texas.  And I still have my worrisome bleeding.  But I feel confident I can meet those challenges right now without falling apart with God’s help.  And that’s the best feeling of all.  Have a great week!

  1. And I’m the opposite this year, with the worst downswing in years. But I’m looking forward to the summer months for the same reason you are. It reminds me that we have to be happy in the little things every day. I’m so glad you are having a good winter.

  2. BEverly, I wish things were going better for you. But you’re like me–you know you’ll live to see the end of it once your mood starts trending up. Hard-won knowledge that you have to hold on to. God bless.

  3. This makes me so so so happy! “Lord, please increase and bless this amazing progress, and help her know this continued stability. We praise You for Your amazing work in Your daughter’s precious life and for the testimony on her lips. Amen.”

  4. I was recently diagnosed with bipolar type two, and am now taking medication. I totally understand the roller coaster you are talking about! I am at a good place for the first time in my adult life. I think I always knew before being diagnosed, and it was a hard pill to swallow… But everyone around me has noticed a positive change, most of whom have no idea!

    • It was very hard for me to accept. As you’ll see if you read the blog, I knew I was prone to depression but didn’t realize my “high” times were part of an illness as well. And acceptance was a long time coming. I hope you can move into that quicker than I did.
