I posted something similar on the alcoholic community but I wanted to get the beepers take on this. I've been in a deep depression for the last four weeks or so. Yesterday I felt great. I spent the entire afternoon making fall cards for friends and family. This morning I woke up feeling equally great, met with my sponsor and went to an AA meeting. I was going to go to Hobby Lobby to buy some things I don't need or have the money for but they were closed. Then I went grocery shopping for the week. When I arrived home I discovered the children had eaten the crackers I planned to use for chili. I totally lost it. I was yelling and cussing and demanding to know who had eaten them all. Anyhow, now I'm worried I'm getting manic. Shopping, irritability, sudden happiness, obsessive crafting. DH suggested I might just be finally experiencing normal feelings for the first time in a long time (I've been off alcohol/xanax for about 5 weeks now) and just don't know how to deal with them. How in the hell am I supposed to know if I'm normal and just having a bad/good day or if my mood is starting to switch? I guess just wait it out and see. Now I feel bad for yelling. I told DH I didn't feel like making dinner and I wanted him to go pick something up.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
