It’s day three of going all in with gamifying my situation to help my body and mind heal. I’m having a blast!! I was going to do the Monk theme, but while I was preparing it ended up morphing into a completely unique theme of germs and germ fighters lol.

Hi! It’s been way too long since I’ve written anything and for those of who were following I’m sorry.

Oops, I’m Sorry 😣

Hurt People, Hurt People 😔

I’ve apparently been manic for who knows how long now. I knew I was a few weeks ago but thought I was moving into a normal level. Over the last couple years the main symptom I guard against while hypomanic is spending money. So a few weeks ago it seemed like I was getting aholdContinue reading “Hurt People, Hurt People 😔”

Bi-Polar Opposites: The Good Kid 😏

I’ve always been the good kid. You know the one. That kid who’s always on time to class, who never ditched school, and who only saw the principal’s office when receiving awards.
