May I share my story of life after suicide, my world as a woman fighting Bi-Polar disorder and ADHD with RSD?
If I had given up a few years ago, just like I had planned, I would not be typing this today.
Maybe you have never been diagnosed or known anyone with Bi-polar disorder, but you may have lost your self worth along the way and decided the world could live without you.
Yes, I did decide to paint a floor to ceiling castle in my children's play room in the middle of the night many years ago. Yes, I have dug many financial holes that I knew I would never see the way out of. I am not Bi-polar, but
I have a super power known as Bi-polar and a backup power known as ADHD.
No, I'm not crazy! If I were not telling you now, you probably would never have known that I have been locked in a hotel room with a bottle of liquor (I really don't drink!) and all the anti-depressants I could carry, with only a plan to go to sleep forever. I left a Do Not Resuscitate note on the night stand and wrote short notes to everyone I loved.
Maybe, like me, you were diagnosed at a young age, but medication did not seem to work, so you (for certain I did) lived a roller coaster life instead.
Feeling me yet?
Later in life, after some deep self destructive behavior, I found a medication that change my world! Let's be honest though, medication does not make the world go round! I have worked on educating myself, focused on my mindset (those negative thoughts cause self implosion!), learned many tips & tricks along the way and yes, therapy!
Wait, that's not all! At the ripe age of 50 my psychiatrist suggested that I might also be playing a deck of cards that held ADHD too. Yep, made total sense to me!
Ever read about Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria, RSD? I hadn't either, but boy do I fit that mold!
Believe me, I really fight fitting into any mold!
