I've been in "remission" of my illness for 15 months now and one thing I am grateful for is finding my sense of humor. I try my best to apply it when appropriate because staying in recovery is serious business. But I can't help making light of certain things to keep the strength and not surcumbing to my dual illness. What I don't get is why this seems to offend some of those who have been in recovery far longer that I. I can't relate to the doom and gloom of recovery ALL the time. I take this seriously...seriously I do...I just want to help and my way of helping is to bring a little sunshine in even when it's stormy and gray all around. I have emails sent to me saying not only am I not taking this seriously enough, but I am also teetering on the fence like humpty-dumpty and I am setting myself up for relapse. I just don't get it....am I stupid or what?!?! If "what"...tell me so I can understand, please!

I've not been in great shape for several months now. I'm due to see my psychiatrist on 17th Oct.I've been getting huge waves of anxiety for no reason and for me that means it's dysphoria or whatever it's called - the BP2 equivalent of mixed state, a kind of agittated depression.I've been taking small does of seroquel at night to try and knock it back but basically it's getting worse..so long...
it has been a while since a roll call/check in and med reminder.Just because hugs for all who wish to avail of the sackful of big fat hugs right here.enjoy
