Mary kicked me out last night (epilogue)

It has been hard. It has been a struggle. It has been troubling. It has been traumatic.But, I am now experiencing a new found clarity that I haven’t experienced in months. I have to work hard to hold onto that. It is time to write a different story.

About bipolarsojourner

i have struggled with episodic depression for years. i then received a diagnosis of being bipolar, only to find out i didn’t. ends up my psychiatrist really meant to say that multiple bouts of depression are often best treated like bipolar. i had already started this blog as bipolar sojourner and didn't want to switch it over. i am documenting my journeys through my depression jungle.

    I am trying to catch up with all your post and feeling helpless, sad and at a loss as to what to write… Sorry may not be enough but I am…prayers may not be enough but I am and will continue to pray…You are an incredible person and your gift of insight is medicine for the soul. There is a thought I want to share by Rick Warren…”Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts, the very tools God can use most powerfully to heal others.”

    thank you for your words and rick’s, too. the sorrow is appreciated. it means there is a disturbance in your life. though at a different level, the civilized word felt a great disturbance and the sadness that went with it on 9/11. i am honored that my struggles created a disturbance in your life. it helps me to realize the impact i have in other people’s life.

    your prayers are appreciated, too. though i feel that my spiritual life is in the trash, it never hurts to have other people supporting me in the way they know.

    also, thanks for the reminder that i am an incredible person. at times like this, whether we are talking about the here and now, or talking about depression, it is easy to lose sight of that.
