I’ve recently come to terms with the fact that I’m bi-polar. It’s a fact that I’ve been fighting for 10+ years. But after two hospital stays for nearly the same thing, I’ve got to face facts. And the fact is that I need to stay on my medication, which I haven’t been taking like I should have for the past three months.
It’s the reason I’ve been withdrawn and the reason why I’ve been depressed. I was in my low phase. Now I feel myself swinging back up to a more manic-y phase, but I’ve got medication to deal with it now. It’s funny because I’ve got both downers and uppers, but it’s what I need.
So hopefully my life will be back on track. There was a time there I wasn’t even showering every day, more like once every week, as disgusting as that sounds. But life goes on and I have to keep pushing forward.
