I'm a poet you know it.
Today I'm filled with no glee.
My bipolar is trying to control me.
I shall not let it however have control of me.
Not today or tomorrow or the next day or the next.
I am bipolar this is true but I don't have to let it run amuck.
I'm strong and am choosing to stay calm.
I can big victorious with the help of the Lord.
It's not all on him though I have work to do too.
When I am feeling down and depressed I will choose to reach out for help.
I will choose to be nice to myself and eat well and bathe.
Even if I don't want to I will because if I don't I'm given away my power.
If I don't I'm giving away my power to my Bipolar.
I will pray as well as cry as needed.
When I'm up and feeling like a superwoman I will find positive things to do.
Like exercise, paint or color, cook or clean.
I will do something positive with all my energy.
I will not let my Bipolar lead the way and talk me into doing something negative.
I'm Bipolar but I'm not without hope.
I'm not without hope because I have my Lord.
I also have my bucket of tools I've learned to help.
I feel really down today but I know I will be okay.
Because my faith and my hope are part of my tool kit.
So even though I'm really down I'm never truly without hope.

I really don't understand myself sometimes. I go from perfectly fine and laughing to feeling like a complete failure. Even though I know that having to have multiple sessions for a tattoo, sleeping through an interveiw, and being behind in some classes, really isn't that deep. But it just keeps swirling around into this gross mess of thoughts. I know people have their limitations, but I can't...
