about a week ago I started feeling so good.  It had taken six months after I got out of the hospital to reach this point.  I even bragged about feeling good finally.  Then I woke up yesterday morning with the spacey, achy feeling that is the norm for me, feeling of depression.  Then I realized--that's why they call it BI-polar!   It's never going to be fixed, it's just going to have good times and bad times.  Spacey and out of it again today.  Hoping the good times will return soon and that I don't take them for granted.

Don't let the bad times get you down Georgie, things can and will get better. Try to have a positive attitude, it really helps. Even when you feel down on yourself or are struggling, if you take some positive outlook on things you can start feeling a little bit better. I recently lost my job, and I was feeling down on myself because I am no longer supporting my family. However I started thinking to myself that this is my opportunity to find a job close to home, that will not require me to travel, have a more predictable schedule, and mentally challenge me. I also started telling myself that I would be able to find a job quickly. At least one opportunity has come my way in the first week that I am unemployed, and it is a work from home job that lets me set my own schedule. It does not pay a lot of money, nor will it provide a steady income, but I know more opportunities are coming based on the response I have been getting from potential employers. You too can start thinking of some positive. Think about the fact that you know your condition - this is your opportunity to recognize when you are having a problem and do something about it!

Georgia Girl,

That doesn't mean that your depression is back for good, you could be having an off day. Which happens to all whether they are bipolar or not. We all have our ups and downs even when our moods seems stable. Hang in there!

Georgie Girl, I hope that you are feeling better and that it isn't a depressive episode for you. I have been in one for about a month and half or more now. they are definitely not fun at all.
