Things have been up and down lately but overall I feel as though I’m coping pretty well. I have been struggling with some new symptoms of dizziness, headaches and blurry vision. I’m in the middle of waiting to see what is causing it, there are a few possibilities from the doctor.
Hi all of you lovely people!
I haven’t been writing on here for a good few weeks because there’s been so much going on. I have been setting up an Etsy shop, selling positive, cheerfulness and self care packages for those with mental illness, chronic illness or anyone who needs them. It’s been fun and a lot of work, and is ongoing. There’s something for every budget and for everyone.
Having a mental illness like Bipolar Disorder, connections are vital in order to cope with the symptoms and to live daily life. For me, those vital connections are those with other people, my support system, which I feel very lucky to have.
When you are chronically ill it can be really difficult to cook and eat in a healthy way due to fatigue, pain and many other factors. It’s a journey I am on myself to try to get healthier and fitter in the best way I can. It’s certainly a struggle but I have come across a few things that can help.
I would definitely say that I have a love/hate relationship with my bed.
Due to my medication side effects, fatigue from bipolar depression, and the pain and lethargy from fibromyalgia, I spend a great deal of time in bed.
Closer it comes, I see it advancing, Laughing to itself quietly, Practically prancing.
Towards me it skips, Joyful and mocking, It’s ugly intent, Painfully shocking.
I can make you full of life,
Exhilarated, passionate and elated.
I can make your thoughts run fast,
Make them electric and creative.
