Not many people know this, so I thought I’d share my great news.
I’m feeling fabulous!!
No more hyper happiness or irritability sitting between my clenched jaws- in fact I laugh more than anything else now. No deathly depression either. No flashes or ideas of killing myself creeping in the corners of my mind. No, there’s light where once darkness lived.
I wrote about my “healing” in Bp Hope magazine a little while ago. You can read it here.
I tend to go manic and my head bursts with ideas but that hasn’t happened. (Now I have to work to make the magic happen).
After an intense manic spell, tinged with bouts of bitter psychosis I would find all my energy drained: I’d be crushed – pieces everywhere. I’d have nowhere to turn but to face the gloomy music every day. And being a mother or wife? That would be the worst jobs in the world those states.
But it’s all gone.
I don’t cycle (not even on a bike).
I’m just Yvette.
Oh world, it’s so good to be back.
Well my psychiatrist is so happy with how I’m doing that I’ve received the okay to go back to work. Eek.
I’m a recovering bipolar with normal problems now.
Hubby has added more responsibility on my plate – which is good. I can handle it. I still get (a little) nervous when I drive but I find it more exhilarating than anything else now.
Anyway, just wanted to share the good news.
I don’t want to give false hope.
But this feels good. Normal feels good.
