The Battle of Bipolar
Erika Sauter

I feel your pain…

Utter desire to just lock myself in my room and stay in bed: check

Anxiety about work, money, whether this cycle will be as long as the last one, exhaustion: check

Insecurity/paranoia about f’ing everything: check

Sheer exhaustion from trying to maintain functionality while these things are swimming around in my head: check

Jealousy that other don’t have to face this stuff down: check

With my S.A.D. and an especially crappy Seattle winter, the general mood of the country, job frustration, random unexpected expenses, and unexpected external disruptions of my sleep cycle, it’s been a perfect storm of factors stressing my normal coping mechanisms. Gah.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
