Hi ya'll! I just got back from camping this weekend. Just got in late yesterday and I'm wore out! We hiked a lot of miles and loading and unloading camping gear is really hard on me. There was this one guy that kept me up until 4 am so I didn't sleep good. He never knows when to shut up and is a drunk. That was my first time meeting him. He's cool and has really interesting stories but I can only handle him in small doses. I don't think I want him coming camping next time. He's one of my friend's friends. He's just one of those people that are mentally and emotionally draining. I'm an introvert and an empath anyhow so I can barely handle being around different types of people as it is. Different vibes and energy can be draining for me when I'm being bombarded from all sides. It was fun but I think I need a break from camping for a while. It's a lot of work and I'm not as young as I used to be lol. I hope you all are well! I'll check in later and try to catch up here. Peace!
Hoping all of your 'two legged children and 4 legged children' fill your heart with Joy.
So I'm going to jump right into it. I just found this group and I'm hoping if I share my thoughts and feelings with others who are going through the same as me, that I won't feel so alone. I was diagnosed with type 2 Bipolar Disorder sometime in 2019. I've had this chemical imbalance for most of my life but it didn't become real until after I was diagnosed. I've lost friends, family, jobs,...
