Hey all.  Thanks for the encouragement; I needed it.  I am just so tired and exhausted today; I know that doesn't help my bipolar at all.  Being tired just makes it worse for me.  I can't sleep because my mind is racing a thousand thoughts a minute and I am getting frustrated at everything including my poor mom who is only trying to help.  But I don't let her know that I am frustrated with her; I don't want to hurt her feelings because she is doing so much.  I just wish that I could get some sleep.  Lying around and not sleeping isn't helping me at all although some call it rest, I call it torture right now.  Anyone know what I mean?  Feeling a bit alone again today.

*hugs* sorry I didn't see this til now. if you can't tell by the fact that it's after 3am I really know what you're going through with the sleep thing. today/yesterday...whatever you want to call it...for me it's still Tues since I haven't slept yet...it's just been a hell day. now I'm dwelling on things and making myself feel worse in the process. I've been feeling lonely too lately. this place is my support group when I'm feeling lonely in the "real world", but the forums have been pretty slow too. hopefully you're sleeping now. just wanted to tell you that you're not alone.

Thanks closure. I hardly slept last night too. My dd woke up at 2:00 and I had a hard time getting her back to sleep plus I was already feeling exhausted. I know what you mean about dwelling on things; I do that too. I can't help it! The thoughts just start and I can't stop them. They just rush through my mind and I get more upset. Plus feeling alone only makes things worse too. Yeah, the boards have been pretty slow lately. I guess everyone is busy; this place is my haven too. I know that I have a place to go to tell how I feel and no one looks at you funny or offers words that only frustrate me more.

Hope you are better today.

Hugs

Hey Missflip - You're going to be a mama again! Are you uncomfortable or is it your worry that is keeping you up. I know from dealing with my fiance that nothing I will say can stop the cyclical thinking (dwelling, worrying, worrying about dwelling), alas, everytime I rub his back and tell him it will be ok. It *will* be ok for you, too. Soon you'll be able to resume meds, and even though I know they're not always the cure we're looking for, they have a good chance of lifting you out of your depression.

just wanted to pop in and send some hugs *hugs* I know you'll get through this...hopefully we both will. it's just hard right now. we're bipolar...things should swing the other way soon. *a little bipolar humor...or at least a weak attempt* thinking of you.
