What am I experiencing: heighten sexual feelings, I don’t sleep much, excessive ordering off the internet, and more.
What have I done: Waxed the car (I never do this), Pulled Weeds, Edged the Lawn, Converted all my toilets to duo-ecoflush toilets, ordered a new bed, went to a strip club (very unusual for me), have clothes tailored, cleaned out closets and laid out my wardrobe for the entire week, and more…
What am I going to do: Talk to the Depression and Bipolar Support Group and see how others cope, maintain my work schedule, try to maintain my sleep schedule, stay away from caffeine, be aware of impulse purchases, trips or ideas – like starting a campaign to run for president 😉
Goals: Keep my health, keep my credit score, keep my job and maybe get some artwork done.
