I’ve just had a major manic episode. I’m coming down.
Now I have a headache. I’m shaking. I hardly moved from this chair in a week!
I just laid down for a while, still can’t sleep.
My mind is no longer alert. I no longer desire to take on any and every available challenge. I no longer feel like obsessively reading every post in Reader categorized bipolar and leaving a comment.
I really wish I had taken my manic moment and worked out boundaries instead of creating a tribute page to Georgie and Tessa that no one will probably ever see. It is nice to have it, though.
I’m so disappointed in myself. Last month I worked on time management, had my sleep patterns regulated, made and accomplished goals. This month has been a waste.
I did redo my About Me page. I was meticulous (as mania will have it). I used the thesaurus and had the wording just right. I don’t know why I thought more people look at that page.
I feel my peace slowly returning. That intensiveness is passing. I can take deep breaths.
I no longer care about my wording or organizing my blog post.
I really want to work on a post about making boundaries, but I just don’t have it in me right now.
I do feel refreshed after laying down. I wish I could sleep.
Does anyone else experience mania to this degree?
