Where I’ve Been Lately | Life Update June 2019

I haven't done a life update in quite some time, but considering I've been insanely busy to a point where I haven't been active on social media since April, I thought I might as well do one. Especially considering I might not be back to how things used to be until August. So this life update is probably going to be insanely short, as everything boils down to three things: work, moving, and mental health.…

Thoughts From Hypomania

Thoughts From Hypomania

I haven't done a mental health post in a while, unless you count my "This is Fine" life update from last week. Mainly as I didn't have anything to say, and I'm sorry if this post is jumbled or sounds off. As I'm writing this post I'm in the peek of a hypomanic phase of my Bipolar II Disorder. And rarely can I ever tell one has happened but this one was as clear as day... mud... whatever. So I thought I would just write about my experience with this phase.…

This is Fine…

This is Fine…

I haven't done an update post in ages and honestly I've written then deleted similar posts countless times now. But considering I'm posting way less than I normally do, I'm going to do a stream of consciousness where I just write everything that comes into my mind and no editing out my thoughts. And the reason I haven't posted this is mainly I wasn't sure how it would go over. Since a lot of it is related to mental health and work, and neither are really things I talk about on this blog. I've done a few posts on my mental health but absolutely nothing other than a mention on my about page when it comes to work.…

My Dog Saved My Mental Health & Life

My Dog Saved My Mental Health & Life

I've been feeling rather uninspired lately but over Labor Day weekend I took a really cute photo with my dog and I wanted to use it somehow. I typically never do blog posts inspired by photographs I've taken. But this one got me thinking just about how much Pixie has helped me over the past almost five years. Especially in the mental health department... and honestly I don't think I've written anything about that on my blog. Or if I have, I didn't see it in a quick search of my previous posts. So why not discuss it with that photo I love so much of Pixie Bug and myself.…

So You’ve Had a Poor Mental Health Week…

So You’ve Had a Poor Mental Health Week…

I don't know what it is about this month or the last few weeks to be honest, but my mental state has been all over the place. Including just running out of almost all of my creative juices, hence the lack of posts lately. Having Bipolar Disorder this does happen, but I swear my phases have been getting worse every time I dip into one. And this last depressive episode has been the worst one I've had in years. So I thought I'd have a conversation about it and how I'm trying to pick myself up or cope with this lately episode.…

Managing Anxiety With a few Simple Skills

Managing Anxiety With a few Simple Skills

Now this post isn't to say that these skills will cure your anxiety, but they can help you get through it a little bit easier. These are the things that I do when I have a lot of anxiety and stress. Which I have been having a lot of recently, due to both work and the fact that my family has been staying at my place for the last week. So I haven't really gotten the chance to play video games or film videos, since I just feel the need to entertain them versus doing my usual things to settle myself down. But there are a few things that I'm still doing that are helping me out with managing my anxiety.…

Getting Things Done When Your Mind Won’t Shut Up

Getting Things Done When Your Mind Won’t Shut Up

When people say their mind won't shut up or is always thinking of things, the first thing most assume is that those people get things done. Or are always going in the direction towards their goals and would be very successful. As someone who deals with anxiety and bipolar disorder, my mind is always running on all four cylinders to the point where getting work done seems almost impossible. Sometimes it's so bad, even just remembering what someone asked me to do unless it's written down I completely forget about as it gets lost in the mind void of a million thoughts.…

Habits For A Happier Mindset

Habits For A Happier Mindset

One thing I recently have been inspired to do is write more health & wellness posts. These are some of my favorite posts to read about and help me a lot when I write about this topic. As if you've read any personal update before of mine or follow my social media accounts, you'll know I've been dealing with my bipolar disorder reappearing it's ugly head. And no... I haven't gone in yet. I can't really afford the co-pay at the moment, so these are things I've been doing that have been actually helping me a lot get through the cycles. Especially the depression phases, so I hope that they might help someone else as well.…
