I Remember

I forgot to remember what all this talk on recovery means to me. I think it means I am trying to figure out life. *Chuckle*...As always.

I feel things so deeply and when I don't keep these feelings under control they come out in a big, messy way.  Sometimes I have wondered if I am not bipolar. I feel like I'm on a roller coaster ride sometimes. I can be up, down and sideways all in a day or less, and then do it all again.  I don't know.

What I do feel good about it writing it all down. Which is weird that I like to write it in a blog, because I hate writing in journals. Maybe reading others stories makes me feel better, too. Seeing that I am not as "crazy" as I think I am. Not alone as I sometimes feel.

I think I also forget to remember that life IS a roller coaster, everyone has different emotions and different ups and downs whether they are mentally ill or not. Emotional times are not just exclusive to me and my illness!  I should take this into consideration more. Be more compassionate towards others plights. After all we're all fighting some type of battle. Aren't we?


  1. I read something and I wish I could attribute it to the correct person who said it, but it was this: Be Kind to everyone you meet for everyone is fighting a hard battle.
    I think sometimes we see the facade's people put on or we think they have these great & perfect lives and deep down everyone has some sort of struggle. I try to remember that quote when I interact with someone grumpy..maybe they are going through something really tough right now. Nice Post!

  2. Just came across your blog and I really admire you for sharing your story! Thank you for that.

    You definitely aren't crazy...and you definitely aren't alone. We all have our own hardships that we must learn to overcome!

    Great post. I will definitely return!

    1. Thank you! Glad someone is reading! lol

  3. I think it makes sense that you would like blogging and not journalling - I have journaled off and on for a long time. But I like blogging in a different way because I'm not just talking to myself. I'm writting for myself but also talking to other people and even getting feedback and encouragement.
