Hi, all!  I hope you are doing well today.  I'm really not, just need to whine, if you don't mind.  It's dismal outside, and I feel like I'm in a fog, sleepy, can't get motivated. eyes   It's impossible to sleep in the daytime no matter how tired I get - mind races anyway.  I have always had mixed states and it doesn't always disappear, even on meds.  I need to do housework, shopping, excercise (didn't yesterday!) and can't seem to make myself.  I feel so guilty.  Usually I feel good, do lots of things every day, I hate it when these days happen. 
 
Anyone out there who can kick my butt and get me going LOL?
 
Thanks for listening. :-)
Shannon

Hi Shannon,

i'm sorry you are having a bad day. You can whine any time. I hate those unmotivated days. I wish I could kick your butt to get you going. And kick my brothers butt to wake up to reality.

Bad days suck I know :(

Thanks, Dana.  I actually accomplished some light housecleaning, shopping, shower, makeup and cooked dinner yesterday. (I LOVE to cook - relaxing).  I just made myself little by little.  Today is better, but I'm still so tired.  I can't wait until the next swing LOL!

I appreciate your reply, thanx! :-)

psychnurse,Well, at least you got SOME things done!I don't suffer from bipolar, but have a son who does, and even though we don't live in the same place the strain is there.Well, I must say it isn't ALL his fault(MY being tired, etc....)I think life in general for all of us is so stressful that we all need a kick in the butt at times to get motivated!I have a tendency towards depression, and the fatigue from that can be unbelievable!Feet feel stuck in mud!haha...so hang on, your next swing will come around(just don't swing too high!haha)take care........

That is Great!! Shannon that you had a good day. I did as well. My husband made me rollerblade yesterday with him and I think it perked me up today. At first all I wanted to do was sleep. And he said I can sleep when I die (jokingly). Granted he doesn't deal with lupus, but I did it and afterwards I was glad I did. I got so much housework done today and I even started to organize. I'm sure my husband will have a heart attack when he sees that I filled. My apartment is like a paper explosion. papers everywhere. and it's starting to look good.

I'm glad you love to cook. I do to, just need a bigger kitchen. Glad to see you doing better.

And Jo I have a tendency to have my feet stuck in the mud too. I'm finding that exercise helps. And now that it's spring maybe things will get better.

Sun usually helps but now with the lupus sun can cause me to be sick. So it's a double edged sword. But oh well.

Lots of love everyone

I'm so glad you're having a good day - sun definitely helps!!!

Rollerblading is great excercise - I did run today, which helped.  Not as long as usual, but better than none!

You don't really have to be in the sun to benefit it's mood lifting qualities - just open all the blinds in the house or sit on the patio with some sunblock and read.  Good therapy!

Jo, thanx for your well wishes, I'm sorry you're no stranger to depression.  Do get out and take a brisk walk - it will do wonders for the cobwebs in your head!
