Another chapter on Being BiPolar
I have not blogged much in the last 6 weeks or so, I have just been too overwhelmed. Thought I would try to explain! My social media activity has been so low compared to “normal”. I just can’t keep the same pace all the time.
The good things happen when I am on my way up from a “down cycle”. I feel like I was sleep walking, and often was asleep for a long time. I am just numb, and really cannot control waking up or making myself get ready to do something. I stopped driving much a while ago. I just don’t know when I am going to be too tired and lose focus.
Being diabetic seems to complicate things, because highs and lows in blood sugar have serious effects on energy and alertness as well.
I am still in a very tired and sleepy stage, but I feel hopeful that the turn of seasons to Autumn will cause a change to be more energetic again.
Most of the time, I don’t know when or how changes will happen. I tend to go in cycles of 3 – 3 weeks or 3 months. I have even had a time where I spent most of 3 years in bed not that long ago.
When I have energy, and am on top of things again. I feel limitless. Funny, but this psychotherapist in the video below uses a film called “Limitless” to illustrate Bipolar disorder. I am going to have to look up this movie, now!
