Between Moods, Good, Bad, Indifferent


This post is about the symptoms that come with mood changes for me and how they affect my daily life. Not only the mood changes but the confused thoughts and other things…

At times I am happy, laughing and joking and other moments I am indifferent. My thoughts race and then will slow so much I lose my words. I stop mid sentence on a word that I just can’t get out. I don’t mean I stutter around it, I mean I open my mouth and nothing comes out. The word is floating in my head but not making its way to my lips. I say um as many times as it takes and it eventually comes out. It is strange but I can actually visualize the word but can’t get it out. I am not sure how often others deal with this symptom but for me it’s pretty frequent these days.

The World we Live in…


This post may be offending to some, it is not intended to be offensive to anyone! I just can’t keep my thoughts to myself any longer. This is my perspective and I have a right to it as you have a right to your perspectives, thoughts and beliefs. Love and light to you all. ♥

Sometimes, I wonder what our world is coming to! Then I look around and realize it has been like this for quite a while. The Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings really took a toll on all of us. Our hearts break for each person who has lost their lives and the families, and friends of everyone involved. I haven’t written about it because what could I say that hasn’t already been said or felt by everyone.

Do You Have a Disorganized Mind?

Picture of Frustrated woman

OK I know This is exaggerating.

Sometimes I feel lost in my disorganized mind, it just swirls and swirls like a top. It’s like I see my thoughts flying by but can’t grab a hold of them or think them through.  There seems to be so many thoughts whirling around I don’t know where to start or how to capture them. It makes me feel lost and overwhelmed.

Obviously I have my hands in too many fires but they are all necessary right now, so the key would be getting organized, I think.  I sit down to make a list and my thoughts all leave me, and I’m sitting with a blank mind. Although I know somewhere in there my thoughts are swirling. Ugh frustration!!

I know part of my issue is that I put things off especially when I feel this way. Then I loose track of time and am under the gun to get stuff done and I sit in my confusion doing nothing.  42 yrs old and here I sit never have learned how to deal with the dysfunction of my mind, well this part of it anyway.

Do any of you feel this way ever?  If so, How do you stop it?  How do you get organized?

I am looking for some help here.. I hate admitting that my mind is this way but it is the truth and I can’t figure out how to deal with it!  If you have any solid ideas please feel free to leave me a comment.

I am truly not whining just looking for ideas..

Thanks Everyone! May you have a life filled with happiness!

Another Loss…

I received a call yesterday that a family friend had passed away unexpectedly. Unfortunately, this is the husband of the woman I spoke of in an earlier post Losing Someone.  She passed away just a few short weeks ago of cancer and now her husband has passed away suddenly.

This family was extended family for me, I have known them since I was 3 yrs old and have been friends with their daughter, Bonnie, since then.  Bonnie and I haven’t talked in a couple years because she lives in another state and we have lost touch.  I am so worried about her and her sister!! The loss of both parents in such a short time has to be over overwhelmingly devastating!

How am I Feeling Now???

I told you all back on 03/04/2012, on post A Worn out Bipolar Mind… that I was slipping into my Hypo-manic state and that I was frustrated by it. I increased medicines then realized wrong direction and a few days later I lowered them a bit and I am now happy to say I am feeling MUCH better. I have never had an episode last that short of a time!

My mind is slowing enough that I can get posts done and organize a bit more.  I have made lists so I am not attempting to keep much in my brain. I have to say I am still just a touch sped up but I actually managed to sleep most of the night last night and I haven’t done that in a while, at least not without some help. lol

I decided to take a suggestion from a friend at a site called A Band Of Wives, which I am a member of, and post some more inspirational thoughts. Today I decided to pull a few Saying and quotes and post a few pictures. Thanks Leila!

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.
~ James Neil Hollingworth

If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s,
we’d most likely run to grab ours back.
