I have a phone conference tomorrow and I have to wake up early. I was so tempted to skip my night pills and let myself go manic but I didn’t give into it. I’ve decided to take my night pills no matter what. I realize sometimes I get so manic that my pills don’t touch the mania. Times like that I’ll just do the mania and enjoy it (I do love mania it’s the coming back down I can’t stand).
I’ve stayed up late today but I got a late start. I couldn’t even move from my chair for hours after sleeping all day Saturday. Friday I cleaned the living-room spotless! Saturday I slept all day (which I usually do Sunday but my landlord was coming Sunday to do some work).
It was hard to get up and get started Sunday but I did it! Right now my little apartment is cleaner than it’s ever been all at once.
I feel empowered! So for the past two out of three days I worked time management pretty well. Although I wanted to finish in one day I had to spread it out for two days. I almost let myself go manic so I could get it done. I never know what my mood is going to be when I wake up. I decided to do the right thing and take my night meds and not go manic. It worked out. It was hard to get going but once I started I managed to reach all of my goals. I’m very happy about this!
What made me SUPER excited is that my landlord came by to look at something and commented about how clean my house was and gave me a compliment on how good it looks. Wow! I really didn’t think anyone would notice.
Something like that sometimes triggers a manic episode because I’m so happy I get ecstatic and before I know it, it leads to a manic episode. I didn’t let it get that far though. I took my meds and went to sleep like I’m supposed to!
Well, this sums up my weekend and how was your weekend?
