    Straight Talk on Managing Bipolar Disorder

    My number one tip for managing bipolar disorder? Know what your mood swings look like from the minute they start. The very first thought of mania for example often tells you all you need to know. “The colors are so gorgeous today!” is a thought I get when I start hypomania. I don’t think this way normally.  When I’m in an average mood, I will notice colors, but I don’t FEEL THEM PHYSICALLY like I do when manic. I now know that having this simple thought- ‘The colors are GORGEOUSSSSSSS today’ is a sign that I’m not stable. I go into action and…

  • Very Good Job! Good for You Julie!

    18 Jul 2014 | 4:14 pm
    Before I created The Health Cards- I used to be terrifically hard on myself. I don’t think I praised myself for years- except when I was manic of course and then the praise was a bit grandiose. I now praise myself each time I accomplish something. Always. It’s automatic now- even when I’m depressed. When I finish something, I have the thought- Good for you Julie! Do you do this? It took me a while to master the technique, but I’m glad I did. It’s a lot better than what my mind used to say. Julie Related posts: Bipolar Disorder and School Keep Going! Julie!

    I remember how it feels.  When I was finally diagnosed in 1995 (after a slightly manic trip to China!), I was very relieved to have an explanation for why I had been so odd for so long. Many questions were answered. If you were diagnosed, you may be very scared, worried or even incredulous. What? I have a serious mental illness! No way! Then you read all of the symptoms and it makes sense. If you love someone with the illness, you are probably scared and worried Here are some facts about bipolar disorder: - People with bipolar disorder can absolutely get better after a diagnosis!

    Apologies for the radio silence. To say things are hectic is lowballing it. From August 1st I will not be working for 3 months. Put simply, I’m exhausted. Emotionally, psychologically, spiritually even. Some days I dread walking into the building, to a job I once loved. My inspiration is gone. I am very good at what I do, but now I do it mechanically. I’ve become obsessed with making sure my guys can waltz into any position they want. I want my brother and mother and sister and now nephew to be proud of me. I feel responsible for all those I know who cannot work, who…

    I never remember my dreams. It hasn’t always been like this. I dreamt like crazy as a kid. Not remembering probably happened about ten years ago. Anyway, I’m so used to not remembering my dreams that I hate when I do. Every dream feels like a nightmare.Which I know is not true. I know what a nightmare is. But I don’t like any of my dreams. In the one I just had everyone started not liking me suddenly. And things in it were just weird. Dreams are strange. My work didn’t look like the office I’m used to.

  • I don't want today

    19 Jul 2014 | 3:25 am
    I didn’t want to get out of bed today. I have a reason, but I cannot say on here what that is. This day comes around every couple weeks and I have such a hard time getting through it. Today is a little worse.I just don’t want to.I guess it’s good though, that at least I know this is coming. I’m familiar with the feeling I get. It’s not like a lot of other days where it just hits me. BAM! I knew this was coming. Was I prepared for it though? Not at all. I need strategies. Instead I will probably be relying on Xanax.

    I had a great therapy session today. He first asked me why I cancelled a few of my appointments. I explained that I had to figure some things out. If I was going to commit and actually share what is going on. I then told him what I told my psychiatrist a couple weeks ago, about all the noise and thoughts racing around my head. That at times I feel like I’m losing my mind. He was curious if there was any family history of Schizophrenia. Which I found to be interesting. He said that it’s not uncommon for mood disorders to carry psychotic features. He didn’t say if he agreed or disagreed…

I did talk about some of this in another post but thought I would go through it a little more.I was first taken to the MHU around 3am. I was exhausted. I had just spent 11 hours in the ER and was totally out of it. I honestly don’t remember much about when I first got up there. I know I felt relieved. I was very nervous about committing myself, but once I did it meant that I had to take a break. I had no other choice. So yeah, I felt calmer than I had in weeks. From…
  • Team Ativan or Team Xanax?

    12 Jul 2014 | 4:55 pm
    Ativan and Xanax both belong to a group of psychoactive medication called Benzodiazepine. They are both used for long term anxiety and panic disorders and also used as a PRN (take as needed). They are both highly addicting. Both are very similar and both I have had experiences with. I first tried Xanax. This was years ago when I still lived in Ireland. I was prescribed the lowest dose and rarely took it because I honestly felt it did nothing for me. I never asked for a higher dose because 1) I hated my doctor and 2) I didn’t feel I really had much anxiety. Then, around 2 years ago (I’m…
