Blah, bleh, bleak. Down I go. The mania has been blown away by a cold foggy wind and adequate sleep. I’d gladly trade some of this depression for ridiculously expensive eyeliner, though. No, not to be, things don’t work that way.

I’m not too far down. My meds keep me stabilized enough that I don’t generally go so far up or down as I used to. No suicide attempts in years. When I have felt the urge, though, this web site was really helpful, so please check it out if you’re having thoughts too.

I do feel sluggish, though, and the amount of work I have to do is daunting (it would be no matter how little there was). So, I’ll adjust the meds and go to the support group to check in. Make sure I’m eating healthy and exercising; in fact I’ll go do some yoga right now. Wellness, here it is in practice.
