A darker time than usual.
I don't want to alarm anyone, but I'm struggling right now and I don't know why.  I post a lot of more positive things usually, however that does not mean my life is all sunshine and rainbows.  As a matter of fact, most days it is a numbing grey sensation. ...

Dealing with general anxiety (a short introduction to my experience)
I often get stressed about things and I don't understand why.  Even better than that, I often get stressed about things and I don't know that I am even stressed about anything in particular.  This leads to many things, including fatigue, anger, and general ...

"You don't seem bi polar."
Not so long ago these words were said to me. I felt like asking "What does a person with bi polar disorder seem like?"  I, however, didn't.  I'm not even sure what was meant by the comment.  I pondered what it could have meant.  Maybe missing more days wher...

Yet another hiatus, hopefully my last.
There seems to be a pattern with my writing, where I write for a month or two and then stop.  I must analyze this and figure out why I fall into this pattern.  My wife seems to think that I only write when I am going into a manic state.  Based on the two ye...

     Today my
therapist introduced me to the concept of “positive self-talk.”   According to her, this is the practice of,
instead of focusing on the negative, talk through the positives.   For instance, I am often plagued by
nightmares and wake in a confus...

More thoughts on news media and mental health.
     I was talking to
my wife the other night about violent crime and mental illness.   She thinks that a person’s mental health
issues can be pertinent to a crime; that people want to know why it has
happened and that if a person who committed these crimes...

The importance of routine.
     Every weekday morning
I wake around 7:15 AM, take
my medication, and get ready for the day.   After returning for the day I wash the dishes and start dinner.   After eating I sit and attempt to write for
at least an hour.   After writing I have
about a...

Should you tell other people about mental health conditions?
     When is a good
time to tell someone you suffer from a mental health condition?   The answer, as you may have guessed, is
highly subjective.   Many factors play a
role in the time, place, and manner in which this information should be
relayed.   The big...

Thoughts on therapy.
     I would imagine a
lot of people are afraid of the idea of therapists.   The idea of allowing yourself to be so vulnerable
to a complete stranger is very alien.   I
have only had two therapists for any extensive amount of time; and both experiences
