Who amongst us can say that they are 100% “Normal” with respect to our overall state of mind? Based upon my own experience in the distant past with Bi-Polar Type II Disorder and what I have found to be a positive solution for me is the fact that I recognize and accept that positive change comes from within.
For some, it also takes prescription drugs, and/or “Hopes & Prayers”, which I have no opposition to. I always say, “Whatever floats your boat”. I just believe that relief can be accomplished in other ways besides taking mood-altering drugs (Cannabis excluded), and believing that some imaginary dude in the sky is going to solve all your problems in your life in my opinion, is a benign “Passing of the Buck”. If you think your “God” miraculously “Healed” you or solved your problem, that’s okay, but I believe the positive change came from within. I wrote a similar essay recently that you can read at: https://tcsblog.net/2022/01/before-after-and-way-after/
I haven’t had any real issues with BP Type II in a very long time. It’s been several years since I had to deal with it, and at that time, only infrequently. I have been sharing my solution for years now, and it works great for me and I know for a fact that it has worked for others, because they told me so.
When I find myself in a low “Down in the Dumps” state of mind, I write. No, it wasn’t prayers, and no, I didn’t say to myself, “I HOPE I get over this slump “. For me, the positive change takes place from within, when I just decide that enough is enough and I start doing something positive, which for me means, something creative, something that stimulates/exercises my brain.
My writing AND my art projects release those “Feel Good” chemicals in my brain (Google the chemistry). Like I said, change comes from within ourselves. Sometimes all it takes is doing something like playing a little online poker (and winning….or not), starting a beautifully marbled roast in the crockpot, which leads to playing with the two doggies out on my veranda overlooking the Monaco Bay, which leads to…..Wait for it…..WRITING this little essay of “Optimism”.
Ask ANY qualified therapist and they will confirm everything I just wrote, only you’re not laying on my sofa and I’m not charging you a fee. It’s simple facts. Pass them on by sharing this post. Thanks!
