A Little Down but Still Thankful
As you all know #BipolarDisorder is laden with highs and lows. Right now I seem to be on the low like any other time but this time is different. Since practicing gratitude, I have been happier and more positive. While I can't completely escape the mania and depression of this mood disorder I have found ways to manage it besides therapy and medication. Today I am thankful for the simple fact that I am able to receive help for the mental illnesses that I live with. I realize that not a lot of people have access to healthcare and are unable to get what they need. Whether that be a therapist to talk to or a psychiatrist. So while I may be slipping into a slightly depressed episode I know that it does not have to overcome me. I've also made some lifestyle changes as well. Lemon water has been a great mood booster. There is tons of great information out there if you are interested. Remember friends: Stay thankful.
