Just suddenly crashed from a hypomanic episode or possible manic episode - 2 weeks since my last update so gives me an idea of how long it lasted - this crash feels unbearable

I can imagine this is hurting you and I hope it gets better. Take it one day at a time because you will manage one way or another.

Glad to see you back, Mandy. Was wondering where you'd got to. You must be feeling in the pits right now, is there anyone you can talk to, and/or any meds to take the edge off? Big hugs x

Try to take one task at a time. Worrying about it all or trying to do too many things at the same time won't get you anywhere, so no point in that. All you can do is relax, breathe and put your focus on the FIRST thing, leave the rest for later.

Spent time with my little girl - it was the best in a while - my heart was fluttering the whole time I was with her - I managed to not think about the past or future, just on the very moment with her

It does the same for me which is why I was originally prescribed Klonopin.

My X had this. Her dentist suggested a mouth guard, which she wore nightly.

Mandy O
11 May 2017 ·

Thanks guys; for the advice and sharing your experiences.. I know I should but I rarely visit my dentist - I'm not afraid I just don't do things I should :/ the last visit I got asked if I was under any stress.. I said no (lie) and wondered why

Mandy O
11 May 2017 ·

She was asking - now I realise it must because there were signs of teeth grinding. I've only noticed I do this recently especially after I got took off cetalopram meds because my jaw went that stiff lol since then I'm aware when Im clenching my jaw

Mandy O
11 May 2017 ·

I will ask about a mouth guard Love1 :) as one of my back teeth has been breaking away slowly but surely! X

Esther B
11 May 2017 ·

I have a mouthgard as well. It helps me from grinding but not always for clenching my teeth..

I know all these feelings. It can feel like a big mess. You'll get it straightened out though, Twinny. I know you will. xx

Mandy O

Thanks everyone and tomorrow I'm going to start straightening everything up manda - the more I put it off n try to ignore it the more It's bothering me - so much to do which is overwhelming but I'm going to do it a bit at a time! X

It's gone midnight and I'm ok - I can feel my mood lowering but that's ok it's normal for people's mood to lower a little at night - trying to keep this in mind, then distract myself from overthinking

just watch the weather and know that your mind is just like that. it is a product of nature-ever changing, clouds come and go like emotions, weather fronts move in and stay for a few days like moods, but ever changing.

Thank you everyone and yes Love1 much calmer and feel in control of my thoughts and feelings - accepting how I feel and really telling myself over and over every feeling is a part of me, a part of who I am - feelings pass peacefully when I accept :)

Love 1
08 May 2017 ·

yes. it feels different saying I am sad, anxious, angry, etc. versus saying a part of me is sad, anxious, or angry. because there is also awareness,there maybe a part that is concerned, etc.

accepting, acknowledging, respecting all parts, especially the exiled and rejected parts helps us integrate all of who we are.
