Being BiPolar – always having to adjust and scale back
I have to remember to “take my emotional temperature” and reduce the stress that builds up in my life. My photo is of a mother with child, but as adults we have to play both roles for ourselves!
Anything can snowball into a bigger more stressful thing. Volunteering is a wonderful thing to do, but it can get to be way too much. I just had to resign my co-coordinator volunteer job at Moveon.org this week. I feel guilty because I have skills, but I can’t handle it all emotionally. If I could, I would be able to get a real job.
Social media online is where I spend most of my awake time every day. I have to be careful, and tend to readjust things from time to time there as well. Right now I am cleaning out my Google Plus circles. There is only so much room, and I accepted thousands of people that I don’t know. Now it is time to readjust!
It is so important for me not to get completely overwhelmed. Bad things happen to me physically and emotionally, and I can be sidelined for months.
