And Now Something Fun

We all have different ways of coping with everyday stress and Bipolar Episodes. Some find counseling, group therapy, one on one therapy, yoga, etc., etc., to be helpful. I find keeping my mind occupied helps. I try photography and I make jewelry. These things make me happy. I get lost in the details and the artistry so I don’t have room to think about anything else. For me this helps. It doesn’t mean it’s the right way to deal with things but it’s the way that works for me after trying everything else. I don’t know if it’s healthy or not. I keep getting pressured to go to therapy. Not by my Doctor but my sister. She doesn’t understand how many I’ve been to and how many bad experiences I’ve had. I’ve decided it isn’t my job to convince her. If she can’t accept my decision than too bad. Someday I’ll find the right person, until then it’s photography and jewelry.DSC01268 (2)DSC01270 (3)DSC01271 (3)DSC01275DSC01274DSC01269

About darie73

I have lived with Bipolar Disorder since my early teens. I have lived with Social Anxiety Disorder for even longer. I self-medicated with alcohol for over 20 years, that's how long it took to get a diagnosis. I'm open and honest about my mental health so hopefully one day the system will change.

    Don’t stop with the creative projects. They’re absolutely necessary for shifting shitty moods into something productive. I’m with you. I live for creative expression wherever I can find it.
    Lovely photos 🙂
