Yesterday morning I could not get out of bed.
But the good news is I did.
It was a really inspiring day and lots of interesting and challenging things happened.
By the time I went to bed my head was buzzing.
I felt like my head was this incredible bee hive with ideas buzzing around it like a swarm of excited bees!
When I went to bed at 11.30, my head was so alive that all I wanted to do was get out of bed and do things.
Catch up with all the things I hadn't done while I had been in bed under the duvet!
I wanted to iron, clean the house, answer my emails, wash up and most of all plan my life and get my ideas down on paper. I was a brimming with creativity!
I wrestled with my mind for what seemed like forever.
When it refused to stop and let me sleep I gave in to it and cleared my emails and wrote!
Writing seems to help me loads these days.
Even if I do nothing with it it gets it out of my head.
This morning I was up mega early.
I feel there is so much to do.
The last thing I want to do is stay in bed today.
But I am bipolar.
Sudden mood changes can escalate fast.
I must pace myself.
I must cut out the extra medication I took to get me out of bed.
The trick now the depression has lifted, is to start rebuilding my routines and put back all the things that keep me well and keep me staying well.
It is good to be out the other side.
It is amazing to want to leap out of bed.
I wonder what today will bring
I think it will be good.
