  1(6) 2(7) Been shopping with my sister today :)3(7) Feeling good :) just waiting for blood tests and ecg to make sure I'm ok to continue taking my mood stabilisers on a long term basis .. No anxiety today which is a plus :)4(4) Slept most of the day and generally been a 4 today.. Been tearful today aswell5(1) Slept loads, crying when I'm awake. heartbroken that children's services took my little girl because I had an episode last year. Now they are saying my bipolar will effect her n she can't come back :(
(1) intrusive thoughts are back... Starting to have thoughts on how this pain would all end if I wasn't here.. My mood stabilisers obviously aren't helping so far!! Trying hard to distract the thoughts!
(5) Glad my moods settled from earlier on... Face timed my little girl earlier and felt much better since then <3 feel normal mood wise, appetites come back.. Just haven't got my energy back yet
6(7) Really happy after visiting my little girl this evening ... We went for a walk by the stream and we got lots of photos ... I love her more than life <3 she motivates me to beat these bipolar blues!!7(5) Mixed day today but generally ok..!completed my debt appointment - my support worker had to almost drag me there. Going bankrupt - but as scary as it seems.. I will be debt free and can start a fresh
(5) Feeling bored but too lazy to get up and do anything... I'm just enjoying being tucked up warm in my duvet :)
(6) Having a few positive thoughts about myself... I've stopped harming, binging, drinking excessively, almost kicked a drug habit (social wise/weekend use) since my diagnosis I feel at ease with who I am
8(6) Got up feeling motivated after an 11 hour sleep on my zopiclone tablets :) I'm cleaning up my house, although at a slow place lol kind of miss my hypomanic mood where I'd clean at top speed haha!
(7) Wow I'm feeling good :) cleaned up my living room and kitchen and then my support worker came and she helped me open a year and a half worth of mail I hadn't opened and organised them. Ready to relax
(8) Well the relaxing didn't happen - not complaining though as I love these little bursts of energy I get now and then ... I always take full advantage of it and have managed the full housework :D
(5) Oh shit ... Why!! Just why!! The tears are here... Happiness and positive thoughts disappeared suddenly and unexpectedly!! I'm repeating 'you got this' in my head to drown out the negative thoughts!
(6) less than 30 mins and managed to dismiss the intrusive thoughts by quickly recognising they were about to take over! Can't wait for my stabilisers to increase next week! seem to be really helping :)
9(8) Feeling great today - contact with my little girl later :D
(5) Always feel heartbroken when my visits to see my little girl end... Staying strong tho so she can return home when my illness has been under control for a while <3
(7) A few sensible drinks with my friend
10(6) 11(5) Had a hangover all day and felt like shit ... Dampened and blank mood due to alcohol last night and lack of sleep. having a brew and watching tv - the comedian Jimmy Carr makes me laugh so much haha

(8) Shopping todayyyyyyy :D and going to grab some lunch out somewhere in town :)
12(1) Missed medication for 3 days and wow I am so angry! Why do I go to guys that I know only want to use me and not care because I basically want to use them.. But then afterwards I feel guilt and disgust
(4) Just slept and lazed about all day - the thought of having to see or communicate with another human being is making me feel irritated and slightly annoyed so I've isolated just for today
13(4) 4am still up and just took half a sleeping tablet aiming to be up after 8 hours sleep around midday .. Planning on interacting via phone call 2morrow but still not wanting to socialise in person.14(0) Having an argument via text with my mum.. I told her im confused to how she could be so hurtful as I could never be that way with my daughter.. I feel I could kill myself to show her my suffering
(0) I'm thinking of running away to a friends who lives 100 miles away .. Just disappearing ... Letting people feel so scared and worried for letting me down!! I'm so angry n upset right now, Nobody cares
(1) Why am I so aware of the fact I'm not taking my medication and that I've drunk alcohol for 4 nights ... Im very aware of my actions and understand the consequences but still not doing the right thing!
(2) Looking back on my recent posts I've learnt that stopping medication to allow myself to drink has really affected my mental health ..just as I started to make progress- guess I need to try harder

18(4) night time overthinking - upset that In the past year I left my job, lost my car, my partner, my little girls living with her gran -I don't even know how it's all ended up this way :( feel so alone
(4) And just to add... I kept telling my doctor for years my moods were becoming more n more problematic. Only now Ive fucked my life up have they finally decided to diagnose me.. Why didn't they listen!!
19(5) Socialised with a few friends today - was able to say 'no' and stick to my Plans to go home from the pub after 2 drinks. Although my friend tried encouraging me. Suppose I've had an ok day today :)
(6) Starting to eat a bit better - only eating twice a day but noticing I can eat a little more each time (I've lost 2 much weight) it's raining outside so I'm having a lazy Sunday in bed; warm and cosy:)

(6) Enjoyed a Cooked breakfast and a cup of coffee - not had a coffee for ages as caffeine isn't the best for me so I really enjoyed it :) Reminder for later: Taken my mood stabilisers!
(5) On public transport - Anxiety has kicked in ... Headphones in and trying not to make eye contact with anyone - feel like everyone's staring at me - most likely they aren't it's just my anxiety
(6) On the train now - love travelling on trains - it really relaxes me especially watching the scenery out of the window - it's just buses I seem to get uncomfortable around people on
(8) Had a great 4 hours with my little girl after school... Went to the park for an hour and then we went back to her grandparents for dinner and done some creative activities. Hate it when i have to go:(
22(1) This always happens.After I've spent time with my daughter I can't sleep on that evening.I feel I'm being punished for my illness (bipolar type 2) she is my world- it's so unfair, I'm heartbroken :(
