I spent most of September in the haze of mania and depression, sometimes mixing the two. In fact, a great deal of the month is a blur. What stands out clearly is the fear, darkness, and complete overwhelm that followed me through rapid cycling and a meds change. Now, thankfully, I’m pulling out. I still feel somewhat timid and afraid, worried that the next step will take me back down *that* path. I’m also very easily triggered right now and trying to be careful in those terms. It’s hard when the world is filled with such bad news, though. I’m grasping at straws, albeit with more ease, at the moment and crawling out one more time. Hopefully, that means I’ll blog with more regularity again. Thanks to my devoted readers who keep coming back, even when there’s very little to see.
