I'm just learning about the whole manic thing. I'm BP2 so I thought I never got manic- but lately ooooh- how do I get out????
I have just spent 5 hours making 3 1/2 dozen PERFECT cupcakes for my daughter's 9th birthday party tomorrow. Each one has a mini cupcake positioned on top and held in place with a toothpick that looks like a candle on top. Each cupcake combo is original (all 3 1/2 dozen) between the diffrent types of cake used, frosting colors or sprinkle types. (I know that it is classic BP after I am done, but at the time I was just going at it) I should do housework, but how do you get yourself to finish? I go from chore to chore through the house, work all day at it- but don't have anything finished to show my husband as he walks in.
I don't have any good advice... I just hope it will go away before I have to learn ways to deal with it.
Even though I do not understand where I am going on the path that God has laid out for me, I must submit to His plan and trust that He will take me where I need to be.
