If you have Bipolar especially type II you know the lows of depression. For the last year, I’ve been trying to fight it without meds and let me tell you it has been a real struggle. Sure, I don’t have the zombie feelings but I don’t really feel happy very often. It may seem corny, but I’m going to follow the advice of Al Franken’s character Stuart Smalley from Saturday Night Live and repeat his “Daily Affirmations”.
I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggonit, people like me!”
I will repeat this every day until I believe it even just a little. Goodbye self-worth and self-esteem issues. Part two may very well end up being getting back on my bipolar meds, but only time will tell with that one.
