Racing Thoughts #RacingThoughtsThatMakeNoSense

Bipolar is new to me. I’m learning about my own body and mind. Being aware of behaviors now that always seemed normal. Last night I had racing thoughts throughout the night. I don’t believe they were deams. I would have one thought about a situation then another totally different thought about another. Seemed never ending. Not sure how long this went on but I struggled to go to sleep. Felt anxious at bedtime. Felt tired the next day. Being more aware these days about my mood, thoughts and actions.


When I Get #RacingThoughtsThatMakeNoSense

Over the last two years I have not had many days where I've experienced #RacingThoughts .

A few weeks ago I did wake up with racing thoughts and it felt like I was in some different world. It felt like I was on the other side of glass looking into my life and thinking a million different things about my work, life, my personal life, my family, friends, pets, environmental things, and politics among other things.

Racing thoughts feel as though my thoughts are a racing car and the thoughts are going 100 mph and at times swerving out of control. I tend to get confused when I have racing thoughts- life seems to be a blur thus life gets more stressful when I have them.

Truthfully at the moment I don't have a tool to deal with them. Meditation and mindfulness are recommended but I am so lazy when it comes to doing that.

I am going to try my hardest to get into meditation and mindfulness training. I know research backs the efficacy of it and my therapist is always recommending me to practice mindfulness. #MentalHealth #livingwithbipolar


Feeling a lil lost

As I was growing up I always thought there was something wrong with me. As I continue to grow up I still feel like there's something wrong to later be diagnosed as bipolar, was a lil step to feeling better right... Still doesn't feel right. The medications they gave me just put me in a fog and I feel like I'm going nowhere. #RacingThoughtsThatMakeNoSense #Feeling #Feelinglost

Good morning Dear friends #CheckInWithMe #DistractMe

What is broken can be mended

What hurts can be healed

And no matter how dark it gets, the sun is going to rise again.

Sometimes we all forget that the sun will rise again tomo. In some of my darkest nights, when I've sat in the lounge unable to go to bed with racing loud thought "bad news" in my head screaming in my mind. Intrusive thoughts. Even suicidal thoughts. To scared to go to bed to the quiet lonely place of sleep.
I've sat and waited for the sun to rise. For with the dawn coming I feel safer.🌞🌞🌞🌞

I've never understood why or how. But I just do. It brightens me. It warms me. It chases away the thoughts demons the whatever's. It's a new day a fresh start.

well this explains a lot....#BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

for some reason, this quote speaks so much to me. maybe it's my excuse for why I am the why I am....or maybe it truly is real af. every day I battle the demons in my head that make me believe I am not real, or I'm not who I think I evil I am because of the demons inside me. some days I wonder if I'm in a coma somewhere and this life is nothing but a dream. I need almost daily reassurance that I am a real girl....and for those others out there, just remember you are real too. maybe someone can relate, maybe its nonsense that I just had to get out.
