bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life

Visiting the Past

The start of the school year usually brings joy into the hearts of many moms.  “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is not just for Christmas anymore, my friends.

This year has been off to a rocky start.  My emotions are all over the place.  But, lots of anxiety and some crying spells.  “What is up with that?” I’ll ask myself.  Often.

I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a job.  An opportunity has presented itself and I have been giving it some serious thought.  But, my mental/emotional state has seemed to have put the kibosh on it.  I keep wondering, “Is it temporary?  Is it something that isn’t going to get better unless I take some action?” 

Then it hit me.  This seemed to have a little “deja vu” ring to it.

I decided to see if I happened to mention this time period in my blog last year.  Lo and behold, sure enough, there it was.  September 2008 I was having a tough time. 

Good news all around.  You see, as I read it, I realized that last year was ten times worse.  YES!  This ain’t so bad.  AND, it was temporary.  I’ve lived to tell about it.  It didn’t require an increase in medication.  Just some meditation and time.

Thank you,!

  1. Very interesting – you are in my thoughts and prayers! Wonder if you miss the joys of teaching – you truly were one of the best Amber had! What a gift to a little girl. But only you can know when it might, if ever, be time to go back. Taking the time, as you are doing, to just experience your feelings is so important. God will reveal to you His plan. You are an amazing talented woman with so many gifts.

  2. So good to see you last weekend! I have a little bloggy award for you…come to my site and check it out!
