Wow, have I been slacking. I'm about to share something that is often shunned upon by society. Something a bit more personal than most people like.
I've been unable to post for the last few years because I was diagnosed with Bipolar II and was put on medication. Since going on medication, I have lost a great deal of creativity in exchange for a more stable personality. Out of severe frustration with my Drs. (who weren't communicating well between each other, leaving me neglected, along with struggling for 3 years as a guinea pig trying to find the right medication) I quit the meds they did have me on.
This is a very controversial subject and I DO NOT recommend anyone struggling with a mental illness to take matters in their own hands. In my case however, my family and I agreed to take a break and if need be, start fresh with a new doctor when the time comes.
I ask that if anyone feels the need to leave a comment on this post, please do so in a kind manner. Please do not be judgmental. For just ONE negative comment can easily trigger a depression.
On a lighter note, there's a LOT of good stuff to come. We're getting all new flooring, I picked up a beautiful 4 piece bedroom set that I'm refinishing for my daughters room and a boat load of painting.
I'll leave it at that for now.
