Pain in the …

I was describing my bipolar affects to my father-in-law and how it effects my physical wellbeing.

Me: You know how you hear about the ones that totally loose it and take it out on others- that’s not me. I barely have the strength to get out of bed. You’re safe around me.

(Side note: I’m usually between a 5 or 8 during my lows and my health just falls apart- like old injuries start acting up; aka rib, strange cough, allergies.)


Well we had a blow your socks off type of day. My husband and daughter had a 5k race , then we all rode in the parade, followed by our ritual brunch at a local dinner. We also go a new addition to the chickens! To end it all we went to the largest firework display and concert- staring One Republic!

Let’s play

Tonight after our St Patrick’s day dinner we decided to play some card games. Dirk likes to joke and say we should take me to Vegas so my luck can be put to use there but tonight’s games were a little different-lol.

We were playing a game called Golf and in the first round I scored negative four. In the second round I had four point which brought my total up to positive zero. The last round I again got another negative four.

Renee feed up with her high scores complained – ” can’t you stay positive!”

“I’m just playing true to form for a bipolar- low -high-low…”

She was not amused.

Thanks to manyofus1980 comment – “ahahahahahaha! maybe a leprachaun lives in your mind! x” – I had to share my reply with all of you.

I know there is one that likes to show up and take things from me and not return them for weeks , months, sometimes years. Things always disappear/reappeared on the 18th or 28th of the month. I think it’s because my granny found seven four leaf clovers for my birth – I still have them today, pressed and saved. I’m a lucky person for the most part so I guess he has to show up and make mischief to even things out. lol
