Lately I have been going through major mood swings. One minute I feel depressed and another minute I feel super up. I don't mean I feel good, I mean I feel too up. So up that I am so full of energy, that I am running around doing a thousand things and then soon after falling into an exhausted heap. Or so up that I am only able to sleep a few hours a night, and this causes me not to be able to focus or concentrate during the day. I am in a horrible phase with my bipolar right now. It could be worse of course; I don't need to be hospitalized right now. Thank God for that. Whoever things the "up" end of bipolar is fun is mistaken. It is miserable in a lot of ways. And depression is oh so miserable too. Anyway, my doctor is working to try to find the right medication to even me out. I hope she hurries because I HATE the way I feel...
I am so excited! I got my digital camera today! I can't wait to start trying it out. I am going to have to read about it a little though, and play around with it some, so if I don't post pictures immediately, you will know why. I also nead to get a port for it. If I understand correctly from reading the instructions, you need a port to recharge the batteries and to transfer the pics to your computer. Perhaps I should be asking Stuart's advice on this one. (I got your camera Stuart!)
Tomorrow is my Carmelite meeting. I don't feel fully up to going because I didn't get all my studying done (Bible study and spiritual study). That is because it has been so hard to concentrate with the bipolar. But I just spoke with the president of the Carmelite group on the phone and she said to come to the meeting regardless of whether or not I had my lessons completed. She is such a sweetheart. It is going to be very hard to concentrate tomorrow at the meeting though because with my bipolar right now it is hard to concentrate on anything the past few days. Gee, I am being real honest in this entry tonight.
Well, I should get off now. Maybe I will get some studying done for my meeting tomorrow. Or maybe I will go to bed early so I will be fresh in the morning. Or maybe I will play around on this computer for awhile, lol.
Oh, yeah. Please pray for my nephew Matthew. He is in the path of Hurricane Jeanne. He already lost his house in Hurricane, oh, which one was it, Charley or Frances. Now he is staying at a friend's house. It would be horrible if something devastating happened to him again. Stay safe Matthew, and I love you! And I pray your whole family stays safe. That goes also for members of my family on the east coast who are in the path of the hurricane. Stay safe and may God be with you.
