All good with me, how about you guys? Just took a look at my mood graph. Realised it shows cycling behaviour. Low level but still cycling. Stay happy and well everyone - keep fighting!

Good Morning all. Stay happy today and dont let this world and all it's negativity drag you down. We can support each other as like minded souls. We are all a little wounded but keep fighting!

Dunno what to say really, I feel lost and like a shell with nothing inside. Anxiety creeping. Cycling moods but not too deep or high. Kinda 'meh' but with a edge. Does any of this make sense?

Wow, are things getting better? How about you guys? Stable meds in my case I would say in my case. Always stay strong people, positivity kills negativity. When you are going through hell - keep going

Just realised that I'm not a good person afterall. I'm just focussed on me, narcissistic tendancies, other peoples feelings do not register with me. Crazy to uncover this. Dont like it at all.

It turns out now that my son is struggling with depression. Normally this would bring me down but I'm ready to fight to get him better. I wont let him slip into the abyss, he's better than this.

Has anyone got a mask? You know, the one you wear to appear like a normal person? I wear one to appear like a competant professional. It's hard wearing it, pretending to be normal. Very hard.

I think everybody's worn one at some point. It might get less questions asked but I don't think it helps you emotionally.

Robby H - too true mate. Totally agree

I got so good at wearing a mask, I sometimes don't even realise I am wearing it myself. . . I guess it's part of what we do to fit in, to move on. People say how imporatant it is to talk about mental health etc. Bit it is definitely still a stigma

Keeping Track A

I do find that if you speak honestly about it, most people (especially if they don't know you well), don't know how to handle it! . . . Hence the donning of the all too familiar mask.

Ah man, keep pressing enter by accident! Anyways, - definitely agree. I wear a mask. Also agree with Rob H, prob not so healthy but I do feel that to protect yourself, you need to find a balance of how much you tell people too! I find writing in my

In work but no motivation. My manager is the most negative person, dismissing my proposals as a bad idea. I fight his thinking but some times I think 'whats the point'. Too stressful for my condition.

Feeling good today, confident (weirdly). Strange feeling being back in work after my hypomanic episode (meltdown happened during work hours). Everyone says it's Ok but do they see me or bipolar?

My head has always been full of stuff, racing mind. Sometimes it comes out. Nothing crazy, just stuff thats unrelated to the conversation. Now I think I should only talk within these boundaries. Sad

Agreed. I work with children. Me: Whats 9x8? Child: I went on a boat with my dad. Me: Nope! Non-sequiturs are more fun anyway. Say random $hit. Conversations are so predictable and dull anyway. Cabbage!

Flat mood today but what if this is normal? I've become accustomed to being either above or below the line. Funny thing is I kinda miss the hypomanic stuff, dunno why. Weird huh? No offense to anyone

Hey fellow Bipolar people - question for you guys. My mood is still up / down but not in a severe way. Taking Lithium since end of May, is it too early to say it's working? Hapiness going into red.

Neutral today. Sleep disturbed but still pretty Ok compared to my insomnia phase (leading to hypomania). I'll take this feeling anyway over my previous experience.

Everything still good, but waiting for everything to fall apart. Not sure it will but it's always around the corner - waiting to trip me up. Is this what 'normal' feels like?

Write things down for yourself now - things that you enjoy doing, things that make you happy, things that reassure you - arm yourself now so that you have something to hold on to when/if you go back under.
