The untold story of being Bipolar

Loneliness can be your worst enemy. Isolation is what can happen when your in an episode you withdrawal from the people you love and care about. Sometimes you do it and don’t even realize your all alone until it’s too late. You start to wonder where everyone is and when did they disappear? In reality you’ve been backing away slowly until you look up and everyone you love is gone because you’ve pushed them away.

That is the untold truth of what can happen during an manic episode and you come down from your episode and the depression starts to creep in its then that you feel the loneliness. At times it can be a relief to not have someone breathing down your back always asking questions about how you feel or if your doing okay. When this happens it’s the time that I withdrawal from people the most my family and friends.

Then I start to tell myself that they don’t care and they couldn’t possibly understand what I’m going through. I put words in their mouth for them I don’t give them a chance to try and understand me and how I feel I just assume they couldn’t because they aren’t bipolar. How could they know how if feels to not be in control of your mind. Even when your on your medicine sometimes it’s not enough. You can’t control how you feel and then you assume nobody else can relate to you. Which is usually true in my circumstance most people I’m close to can’t relate but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try to talk to them about what I’m going through. My advice is to when you want to back away and isolate yourself you should go see your counselor or a trusted friend and tell them how you feel. Letting someone know you feel alone can be a relief and then they can try to help you or give you sound advice so you don’t feel that way anymore.

Food Prep 101

Start by washing your veggies

Then cut the sweet potatoes 🍠 in quarter size pieces put them in a bowl with a table spoon of olive oil and your choice of seasoning. I used Tony Chachere’s the orginal flavor you can buy it a Walmart or Kroger!

Repeat process for Brussel Sprouts I cut them in half.

Cook at 350 for 30-35 minuets until the potato’s are tender and the brussel sprouts are nice and bright green.

Next I browned by turkey meat 🍖 for 20 minutes and added about 3 tablespoons of buffalo sauce to the meat. Personal preference!

For an extra kick o added a couple slices of fresh avocado to the bowl! Now your finished and ready to refrigerate. Now you have a quick and easy meal on the go!

Overall I spent 67.00 at Walmart on the meal prep of course I got a couple other snack. So this meal alone cost me about 25 dollars and I got 7 meals out of it.
