Since I started this amazing blog 4 months ago, I have benefited the blogosphere with my incedible wit and wisdom. The past couple of weeks, however, have not been so easy. It seems I have writer’s block.
Previously my pen flowed across the page like a crystal spring flowing down a mountain. Now I find it’s more like trying to get the stream to flow uphill. Thankfully I do love it and that makes it still fun. BTW, I do actually write my posts on paper before typing it. Call me old fashioned.
Am I being silly or is it possible that major changes in my brain chemistry is affecting my ability to think? Of course it can. Given all the natural changes that can occur, in addition to my recent drug changes, it’s amazing I can get out of bed in the mornings. That’s why I’m not beating myself up over this. It’s just damn frustrating.
Being a person with bipolar disorder, the inability to concentrate is not foreign to me. Picture my brain is cauliflower. When I attempt to concentrate, I can do so for a short while but suddenly it will be like someone reaching in my head and ripping all the stalks apart. It feels that way and is actually painful. I know, nice visual, huh? Sorry, but that’s the visual I get. BTW, Cauliflower is delicious when dipped in Thousand Island dressing.
I feel like the trend is waining. At least I hope it is. If not, you may be seeing many more of my absurd little cartoons popping up. I hope that doesn’t cause my readers to go running in droves. You all have stuck by me through many different moods, so I guess you’ll be there if I shower you with badly drawn cartoons.
For those who don’t get it, that last sentence was to show gratitude to my readers, new and old. It’s been a wild ride with you all and I hope it gets wilder and more fun.
