Hi friends: I sometimes forget that I have to manage my illness. I start to slack off with my meds, exercise, my routines. I want to pretend like I am cured. I will never be cured. Like Diabetes or HIV/AID my mental illnesses are diseases that I will have to manage for the rest of my life. I have to remember that. I have to. I get tired sometimes. Sickness in any form is a heavy load to carry. I chose to write this entry because I find that writing really grounds me. For all of you who are in a good place in terms of managing your illnesses, keep it up. But either way, experience has tought me that sometimes I have to crash in order to start rising again. God Bless you all.
