I think I am bipolar...

I said that to a friend today...and I don't think it's true...but then again...maybe I am!!I feel so damn (I mean darn) up and down...I understand, then I don't!  I feel good, then I feel sad....I feel content, then I need more....I love on my kids, then I yell at them...I want to go running, then I want to sit on the couch....  Really, I am ok...but with all of the different things going on around me lately, it's just how I feel. My mom has been sick, clearly Lucy's situation, I miss a couple of my friends that are far away, I have too much to do (but I do that to myself).  Anybody feel my pain??

Oh Laura,
I must admit that when I was searching updated blogs, I laughed (before reading your post) at the title! It made me giggle, but if you are bipolar, I must be seriously bipolar. February 2011 has been a very rough month. There are A LOT of things going on now that are just so unexplainable. I too feel your pain. It all seems as if everything is falling apart at once. Thank goodness for God! He is keeping me going. I should have red and bruised knees from being on them so much this past month. ♥ you!

I agree with except I didn't giggle I thought to myself "Thank Goodnes, I am not the only one!" You are not bipolar. You are dealing with a lot of stuff and are are not in control! I feel the same way! This is the time when you have to fully lean on God for strength and understanding! Love ya!

I feel the same way. Stay focused and put your energy into knowing that God is in control. Just look at what all you've accomplished in such a short time since Lucy got sick with shirts, bakesales, etc...All our feelings have been a roller coaster lately. Love, Susan

If you're bipolar, then I think everyone must be! Just think about this: You (and those you love) are one day closer to being through the challenges that are currently in your lives! That's the good news! I saw the flyers for Lucy's bake sale and t-shirts in the work room at school today and thought of what an awesome friend you, Nicole, and Georgia are to Lucy's family.

Yep...you sound bipolar to me. I heard the "cure" for that is a trip to see a friend in Florida. Love you and can't wait to visit!!! I can help get some things checked off your to-do list.

Laura,
I thought about you allll the way home from Covington this afternoon. I got so tickled thinking about this- not because of what you were saying but because I absolutely LOVE your honesty! I don't think anyone has it together- and if they "look" like it.....well, they are trying to fake it!lol Sometimes I think we try to put on our "big girl panties" and deal with life and what it throws at us that we forget that God put us here to help each other out. The good, bad, and the ugly! Thank you for your honesty! Because like Emily, Thank goodness someone feels just like me!:)

Well I have always known that I am OCD, but now I think I am also bipolar because I do all of those same things. I wonder if they have a pill that will help with both.:))

On a more serious note....you are not bipolar. You are a wonderful friend, mother, and wife. I think you are feeling the way most women feel.....and it is completely normal.
