Today is my birthday and I new i didnt want to cilibrate it this year because i just lost my grandmother who I was extreamly close to my dad has found a new family I was diagnosed with bipolar and have a job I cant stand, my daughter was just diagnosed with ADHD and my son starts therapy this week for depression and enxiety. Its been a tough year and today is one of those days you look back at your life and think wow what have i acomplished well me its being a mother which i am more then greatful for but then i see what there going threw and it breaks my heart to know that everything they are going threw is passed down and I worry about them so much.

This morning started out with a phone call from my grandfather telling me happy birthday when it used to be my grandma who was he first to call and I could hear him trying to not to cry on the phone which upset me because I wanted to hear her voice as well.
Then a text from my dad saying happy birthday love you. thats it no phone call nothing he found himself a new family new kids and all he just started seeing this lady 6months ago and was a huge part of my life before her and her family.
So while getting ready for work drying my hair i lost it and i havent had a good day all day.

I cant wait for another day.

happy bday! sorry it was a bad day. sometimes when we don't get what we need from others, we have to give it to ourselves. so treat yourself to something nice today.

As we age, the number of very emotional memories log into our minds. Its important, as bipolars, to try to separate those memories from our responsible actions we need to carry out today. As best you can, direct your efforts to your needs for today and sort out those feelings of loss, disappointment, and heartache for today,s accomplishments. The guy who said," Live life one day at a time". had something going for him.
Best wishes.
Sometimes you don't mean to say what you mean to say you mean.
