Just thought I should write a bit about how things are going for me at this time. As far as how I am feeling inside.
Today feels like another good day. I hope I don’t eat those words later in the day! We are all going to Carl’s house for dinner he is cooking for us.. Can’t wait. He is so cute, my youngest said to him when are you going to cook for us again I want your mashed potatoes and salad, that was over the weekend. So last night when I went to leave his house he said. “hey do you all want to come for dinner tomorrow? Jessi said she wanted mashed potatoes and salad, so I thought tomorrow would be a good day.” I said, “of course!” He is a thoughtful guy.
I have something to look forward to next week too. I am meeting two women I met on Twitter, Miriam and Pamela, as they are coming to town. I’m super excited can’t wait to meet them. Miriam and I have the Bipolar children in common and her son’s name is Sam and my diagnosed daughter is named Samantha. We cracked up that they were both Sams as I call Samantha, Sami! Small world I’m telling you. Pamela is just a super woman and I really have enjoyed our interactions, she is fun! So looking forward to that next week.
So I guess I should get to the real reason I’m writing this post. I am feeling pretty good now.
My mind has finally slowed down and my irritation level is lower than it has been, I’m still not organized but I think that’s just part of the illness. I can only organize my thoughts so far then off they go. I do not have the swirling tornado inside me now so that is a big relief. My mother is moving three hours away so she won’t have any power to mess up any relationships and I can get a little distance without hurting her feelings. Big Relief!
I really am enjoying my time with the kids and with Carl. Next month we are going to visit his parents with him for a weekend, usually he goes alone but I am excited to be going with him and so are the kids. He is such a loving man, thoughtful and sensitive, it’s awesome.
All in all I am doing well!! Now that might change later today or tomorrow or next week or a month I don’t know honestly but I can enjoy this time while it lasts.
I want you all to know your support and kind words have really touched me and helped me to feel better, Thank You all!
Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.
Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.
