Exhausted Again

Tree Limbs Clouds
Exhausted and Bare

As could be expected, I am exhausted. Have run out of juice. A couple (few?) weeks of hypomania and overstimulation, and now I’m dragging and headachey. Got what I wanted done today. Before I picked up my nephew at the airport late this afternoon, I uploaded a bunch of photos from my iCloud account to Flickr. Added titles to the photos. Need to start adding photos to my blog posts, but I take pictures of flowers, trees, and the sky, not of anything related to my posts. The link to my Flickr account is not working. Got to work on that. In the meantime, goodnight. I’ll spend the rest of tonight reading.

The plan this week is modest house painting (very modest expectations of my son and his cousin). I may take them to the pool, to the local beaches, and to the local trails. Friday we’ll head on over to my parents’ place to visit. They always look forward to visits from their grandsons. My sister and I had sons; I, one, and she, three. Not one daughter.

Until I write again, goodnight and goodbye for now!

      Thank you, Zephyr. Yes, I am doing well. My husband, son, nephew and I are visiting my parents for the afternoon and dinner. The boys and my husband enjoyed the beach. We are now reading and relaxing. Thank you so much for caring. I hope that you, too, are doing well. Thank you for your prayers. I will keep you in mine.

      Must be. Take care, Lisa. Thanks for using humor. One of our best coping mechanisms.

    I see now, through you, how I appear to my husband. He abhors the social media. I suppose it is his Asperger’s. But the social media appear to ensnare Bipolars more than most. It presents one with nigh infinite possibilities. And therein lies the danger. I am sure you want to do other things in your life beside social media work. I hope you can let go for awhile and regroup and restore order. And I would love to see photos on your posts, related or not. Take good care, Ktt! Best, Ellen

      I may add my photos a top each post. Photo of a flower, then text about women, mental health, and stigma. Humors me to think about it. Just flashed on a memory of me in precalculus in high school. Our teacher did not understand the subject matter, so we students taught each other. Before I would explain a problem on the board, I would draw a picture of a flower. My favorite at the time was the bearded iris. “Here’s a bearded iris, and here’s the graph of a hyperbola.”

      Your use of language always blows me away. Thank you for such a well-written comment. Beautiful.

        Wow, thanks! I think we would both do well to listen to that comment that said to lower expectations of what to do in a day on the computer. I don’t just do social media but lots of animal, and other, activism. Let’s try. Take care and thanks, Ellen

    Sounds like you’re still doing A LOT in spite of cycling down. When I’m in that place, I have to set my expectations very low–one tiny goal and one bit of self-care each day. I need to have that feeling of success. If I’m able to do more–great–but I can’t push it or I make myself worse.

      Great advice. Going to keep expectations low for today. Let the boys have fun. Chill out.
