Doing pretty good as today. I finally got some sleep! Took some adjusting, but I finally figured out it was my cortisol spiking at night. So I'm taking a cortisol calm sup and it has really helped me. Before that I tried Min Tran and that didn't help w sleep but it stopped my bipolar symptoms. So I only take one in the morning. It keeps me in a good mood all day. Hopefully this is the solution

They stop making the only supplement that keeps my bipolar symptoms under control. All my symptoms are back in full force. Insomnia is out of control and I can feel my mood swings coming back. I know it's lack of sleep that's putting my symptoms in over drive. I bought some other brands in hopes one of them works. I'm in bad shape and having trouble holding on

Thinking of you....hope you find a solution that works soon

Sonny! It's been awhile.. not nice to hear you're struggling so much. I hope the other brands can give you some release. Hold on! X

Hey, Sonny! Definitely hoping you can find something that works. I feel dysregulated without sleep, so can empathize. 20-40 min of yoga nidra has helped me restore some balance midday. Wondering if a protocol like that might help a bit.

Thanks love! I'll look into some yoga

Yoga nidra is different, although yoga is good too. Yoga nidra is more a meditation. It puts me in a delta state similar to sleep. After 39 minutes, feels like I've had a nap. I awaken refreshed and alert. Ready for the rest of the day.

I've been up since 6am Thursday. I just bought a bunch of alcohol in hopes I can at least get a drunk sleep tonight.

Thank you everyone for the hugs

I want to get drunk and smoke cigarettes. *I'm trying to stay sober for 30 days. I figured if I can change a habit, it would change me because we are our habits; not our thoughts.

You can do it. One day at a time or one hour at a time or one minute at a time. Easy does it my friend.

Got a question. I leave it to you guys. And it's big a decision. I can't say the question or what it is you choose the reason I believe in intuition. Red or Blue. The one w most votes is what I'll do

I'll do what ever has the most vote

13 Mar 2021

Blue

13 Mar 2021

Blue wins, guess I'm not getting back w my ex. Which is probably good

13 Mar 2021

Just my feeling, but they are usually an ex for a reason. That said, it is natural to feel a pull towards them because if previous attachment. This is what I remind myself. Hugs Sonny

I don't understand why I can't find love. I met this woman and I really like her, but she doesn't want children. I felt I had to choose between her and something I really want. I chose to break up.

It's hard to explain, but I have this over whelming feeling I miss someone.

Sounds poetic though.

Do you think the universe fights to bring souls together ?

As in romantically or generally?

27 Apr 2020

The mystics say there is only oneness. While we remain stuck in the illusion of separateness, we feel the intense longing. We imagine it is outside of ourselves and project our deep desire for love and union unto others. So, Id answer yes.

I got to forgive myself for things I say randomly. Being bipolar means I say things to sometimes self destruct or make my life harder. I'm sorry

Thank you Shelly thank you albertine

Geeze, last week was a rough one. I fell into a depression, but was able to get out of it.

I hit a cross roads. My job no longer feels secure and I fear I must leave. Idk what to do, because I like it here, but the pay sucks and my boss is incompetent. I wish I could see my future

Tough. I'm in a similar spot, I hate my job but it pays ok and my boss is incompetent. Guessing you're past a list of pros and cons?

26 Jun 2019

Sonny!!! How great to see a post tho being at a crossroads isn't easy - but can be exciting. Thinking good thoughts for you, big hugs xxx

Hows the weight loss going?

25 Jun 2019

Thanks John! It went good. I lost a total of 40 lbs last year. How have you been man?

25 Jun 2019

That's great! Keep moving. Running 3x a week got me from 235lbs a year and a half ago to between 160 - 165lbs which I've been for the last 6 months. No major dramas mental health wise. Occasional bad days but they don't last forever.

25 Jun 2019

Dude! That's badass man! Congratulations on the weight loss! Keep it up and stay strong

I'm not sad but more frustrated. I went to the Dr and long story short he said my test results didn't matter unless I do his test. I said no because I already spent the money and the results

And my results are only a few days old. He said if I didn't do his test don't bother coming back. Well that's that.

14 Nov 2018

I have an other dr appt tomro with a different dr so hopefully it will go better

14 Nov 2018

Hope you get better treatment from next dr

14 Nov 2018

That's terrible, Sorry yo hear your having problems with your drs too. Hope tomorrow goes better and better advice too!

Got some amazing advice today. Set a dedicated time to worry. For me it's 1pm. If a worrisome thought comes, I tell myself don't think about it, theres a time to worry and now isn't it. It helps

I knew I worried alot, just didn't know how much till I started this routine.
