Monday is a difficult day for me. The middle of my work week is Friday-Sunday, and my job is demanding. Monday is the final day of my work week and by the time it rolls around I am spent. I am around anywhere from 500 to 2500 people a day every weekend and my poor immune system is taking a beating. I literally had not been sick in about five years and I have been sick three times since October. Yesterday I came home from work and crashed on the sofa. I woke up with a sore throat and this morning I feel like it is on fire. I feel gross. That coupled with the fact that I didn’t get much sleep has me feeling exhausted this morning.
In other news, I’ve been thinking of what I want to talk about in my next blog and I’ve settled on a couple of topics. I’d love to tell you all about my best girl. She is a Cocker Spaniel named Roxy and she literally saved my life. I’d also love to give you some insight into who I am because I am not just a woman with Bipolar Disorder. Sometimes I feel as if I am super boring because of how introverted I am, but I am pretty sure that I am not as boring as I think I am. When I really dig deep I remember who I really am and I’m pretty awesome.
When you have Bipolar Disorder sometimes you forget that you are not just someone with an illness. It isn’t always easy to think of yourself as worthy. The thing is we are all worthy, no matter how we feel inside or what medical conditions we have.
I also have incredible people in my life. The other morning I sat and thought about it. Off the top of my head I had so many people who make life better. Sometimes I feel all alone and I am not. I am loved.
That said, other than feeling mildly depressed and tired, I don’t feel so scatterbrained anymore.
Well – my amazing coworker saw my Facebook status about being sick and is having ice cream sent to my house. I KNOW. I know. Like I said – I am loved. I am going to go wait by the front door now.
Until next time. Cheers.
