Coming down from a high

It wasn't a great big high and really a stress response to the stuff I've been doing lately - too much and too intense and then it all tails off. But I've been a bit high these past few days and I'm coming down now and so I'm a bit teary (I spend half my life crying because I'm tired, depressed, getting back down to earth, Beckies puppies are cute...) But I'm not good and I want a quick fix like yesterday. Nice to get it all out of my system and now, since life goes on, I'd better get on with it.

I wish it was - it's part of the way I work and the way I am. It's part of me as opposed to being part of the bipolar, the bipolar just magnifies it. I love work and hate not being able to work full-time, just this voluntary stuff that actually takes an hour or so a day. I get antsy when I haven't got something to do so consequently say yes to stuff that someone else could do. My psych say work doesn't define me I define it but it's a lesson I haven't got the hang of yet. I get to spend some brief work time with one of my support team tonight and he'll get the lot, tears etc. I really must find other ways of avoiding the housework! More tea sandybob? :tea::tea:

Thanks Fedup, tea and fresh flowers! Just off out to meet the boys in a little while so the company will do me good and then a nice read of a good magazine I think. Angels the lot of you on here!

The meeting went great and thanks for having a pot of tea ready when I got back! My fave guy couldn't be there but I got to work with two fantastic people, one of who I already know, the other a complete stranger to me. The thing is we're all working together in a realistic way but we make changes because we don't expect great things. I'm really lucky to work with them. Right I'm going to have my cup of tea now :hug:

thats me too - I just can't do nothing. I only work part time because I have 2 young kids.

I think though I may have overstretched myself next week i am doing 1,000 miles on business around the country and I think my body is trying to complain about it - I have a proper pants cold at the moment and the thought of spending next week on the M6 is filling me with dread.

Somehow I think that next weekend might just be a flop weekend

Don't forget to plug in to us if it all gets a bit hairy - that's the blessings of the internet world, it's always there. :tea:

thanks dollit - I have found this a great place to let off steam and perhaps say stuff I would have normally kept to myself

quite literally it can be a lifeline for keeping sane when normally I would have kept things bottled up

you guys feel like friends even though I don't know you

Midnight that's so good you can say that and it's just what I need to hear at the moment. Can't go into details on the public forum but I've had a pretty nasty couple of days and lost sleep. Being able to come on here and just be with people is fantastic. Everybody has a legitimate point of view and everybody is at different stages and that's what makes it work. It's a place I'm glad to have and I'm glad you're here sharing it. :hug: :tea:
