Good Morning Friends,
Have I told you lately how much I love this forum?
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. With that being said, sobriety and addiction often overlap with mental health conditions. How have you been feeling lately?
As for me, I would say I’m in the solid yellow phase.
I’m 5 days sober and doing well, but my pink cloud is fading and my symptoms are resurfacing. I live with Mixed Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, and Panic Disorder w/ Agoraphobia. Lately I have been experiencing mood swings, anxiety, agitation, fatigue, wide spread pain, and insomnia. On the upside, my avoidant behavior has decreased, my circulation is improving, I have been more conversational, more productive, and quick to laughter.
If you or someone you know has questions or comments about living with these disorders, or others, please feel free to share! I am an open book.
So, how are you feeling? Don’t be silent.
