I really seem to be in a good place right now with my bipolar. I’m not obsessing, I’m not depressed, I’m not manic, I’m not mixed, I’m not freaking out about anything. I am coping pretty well with the house, schoolwork, teaching, and writing. I am having an impact with everything I am doing, and I feel good about it. I wil need to go to the grocery store tomorrow to stock up for the weekend, but I think it will go well–I have a good idea what I’m going to buy and fix for everyone. THe laundry is pretty caught up, and Bob seems satisfied with everything that is going on.
I have really worked hard to get this kind of stability in my life. I feel proud of myself for continuing to work on my issues even when they seemed unresolvable. I know that the ultimate healing is in depending on GOd for my health, but I am doing everything I’m supposed to be doing to help myself–taking meds, going to the doctor, and seeing my counselor. Things may change between now and the end of the year, but right now I feel like I am in a good place.
Here’s hoping that we all can find stability and hope during the upcoming holiday season. Thanks be to God for all of his help and abundant mercy,
