    How do you talk your way off of the ledge..

    I've been with my boyfriend for almost 6 months (I'm also bipolar), ever since we we've been together I've been on this manic high. Well, like every high episode comes the low episode which is harder than anything to function with. Unfortunately, it was his birthday this weekend & I wanted to do what girlfriends do & be with him. Inorder for me to stop having panic attacks I drank a lil to much & I didn't make it look good on him because I disappeared to go throw up & never came back out, I passed out. I've told him how sorry I am & yeah, I did fuck up. I now know that he will never understand what this disease does to you because he kept on with the same thing over & over again. I don't think we are or will be together anymore. This really fucked with my psyche. I guess I'm meant to be by myself. He was the 1st man I had been with since my ex husband in 2016. Am I not worthy to have someone love me & understand that this disease is not easy on anybody especially the person that has to deals & tries to conquer every demon everyday??

    I'm so heartbroken....

    Queen/David Bowie-Under pressure

    Pressure pushing down on me
    Pressing down on you, no man ask for
    Under pressure that burns a building down
    Splits a family in two
    Puts people on streets
    It's the terror of knowing what the world is about
    Watching some good friends screaming
    "Let me out!"
    Pray tomorrow gets me higher
    Pressure on people, people on streets
    Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor
    These are the days it never rains but it pours
    People on streets
    People on streets
    It's the terror of knowing what the world is about
    Watching some good friends screaming
    'Let me out'
    Pray tomorrow gets me higher, high
    Pressure on people, people on streets
    Turned away from it all like a blind man
    Sat on a fence but it don't work
    Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
    Why, why, why?
    Love, love, love, love, love
    Insanity laughs under pressure we're breaking
    Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
    Why can't we give love that one more chance?
    Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love
    Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?
    'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
    And love dares you to care for
    The people on the edge of the night
    And love (people on streets) dares you to change our way of
    Caring about ourselves
    This is our last dance
    This is our last dance
    This is ourselves under pressure
    Under pressure

    I have #BipolarDisoder . If I had a baby with someone with #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder and our disorders combined. Would that make a super baby?



    Had a really bad day. Feels like no one cares. My mood has been all over the place. Why doesn’t this go away?? It’s exhausting. I’m so tired of all of it. Sick of all the thoughts in my head. Please make it stop.

    I CAN DO THIS #Depression #BipolarDisoder #Anxiety #ADD #MoodDisorders

    I wonders why I could never journal... At least not for a long period of time. My son(22) has encouraged me over and over again, he assures me that I will feel much better. He explains that as I am writing or even speaking, I have to be assertive, affirm that I am and will accomplish whatever it is I want to accomplish. Funny thing is that he reminds me that I have been that has always teach him that. I wonder why I am never that strong for myself. Its been two yrs that I started painting and aI am good at it... I am scared to start selling my art work. Time after time my family tells me to sell my paintings and I am stuck.... I committed to writing in my journal on a daily basis, with the hopes that everything I write will manifest in my favor... ☮️💟😁 #fearoffailure #AffirmMe
