Accidental week off.

Or nearly a week, anyway.  Six days.  I completely forgot to blog at the weekend… and managed to carry on forgetting all week until today.  Whoops!  So I’ll extend my blogging an extra week, I think.  Or maybe I’ll keep … finish reading “Accidental week off.”

Since I’m extremely tired today (I have new medication which is making me drowsy, hopefully just for the adjustment period, and every time I sit down somewhere relaxing I drop off!), I’m not going to say much again.  I haven’t … finish reading “Typing + tiredness = not working”

Or to be a little more politically correct, (my) mental health.  I don’t have all that much to say about it, really, but I suppose it has been the reason for my sporadic posting over the ten months or so.  … finish reading “C is for (The) Crazy”

46: A bit more on “normality”

Following on from my last post, I thought I’d just write a quick one (I hope!) covering what’s “normal” and not when you have bipolar.  In my experience, that is. As I said before, “normal” is when you can function.  … finish reading “46: A bit more on “normality””

45: Q&A – How do we know what’s “normal” and what’s not?

Ptyx asked me: How do we know what’s “normal” and what’s not? Before I got started answering that, I thought I’d better make sure I understood what she was asking, since there were a couple of different ways I can … finish reading “45: Q&A – How do we know what’s “normal” and what’s not?”

2: A short history of me

Before I start talking about the various bipolar related topics, I just wanted to give a summary of my “qualifications”.  An outline of my experience with the illness.  Something like that. I was diagnosed with bipolar in June 2002, but … finish reading “2: A short history of me”

I’ve been having a really good clear-out over the last few weeks, and I’m starting to feel less mentally cluttered as well already. I’ve even eBayed more of my yarn. I know! Can I really be breaking my hoarding mentality? … finish reading “Autumnal Spring Cleaning”
