This is one of those days again that I don’t really have anything to say. I’ve been having a super hard time focusing in general and staying disciplined. With the sun pretty much disappearing for the next few months ya girl been DEPRESSED ! I’ve had bipolar disorder since I was 8 years old. I also have fibromyalgia so this time of year physically hurts my body and affects my mind.
I’m thrilled that this past winter wasn’t as bad for me in any way as was the last 29 winters of my life. Years ago I had a feeling that I’d fare much better if I could just change environments instead of finding new ways to cope. Since then, I’ve been working on atomic habits that slowly build a life I don’t have to keep healing or escaping from.
