Growing Up

I’m becoming a big boy now. Becoming balanced again after all this time is like being born again (not in the religious sense…or maybe so). Anyway, things I couldn’t do because of my crazy mind are coming back to me.

Here’s what I should get gold stars for:

1. I cleaned the kitchen again last night.

2. I’ve been showering every day and taking care of my personal hygiene.

3. I started reading a book yesterday and am almost half way through it.

4. I’m working on a website and ran into some technical difficulties, as I mentioned yesterday. After freaking out for awhile I was finally able to calm down and find solutions for the problems.

These are all HUGE steps for me and it feels good getting life in order again, though I must admit it’s damn scary. I’m trying to enjoy my new found freedom without overdoing it, but that’s a toughie because I have to keep in constant check otherwise I won’t realize when I’m pushing myself too hard.

The one thing I am missing is my ability to write funny stuff. I don’t know what’s happened but even I have become bored with my most recent posts. From my perspective it validates that being crazy or on drugs makes a person more creative. I wonder if there’s been any serious studies about that.

    I feel too, as if my blog has gone from a funny humorous perspective of a stay at home mom trying to stay sane, to blah dark ramblings of my current gripes. Meds make me feel numb and my humor seems to be bleak….I can relate.

    Good morning Bradley. Don’t worry about not writing funny stuff, The huge steps accomplishments are fantastic. Often a creative dry patch is nature’s way of saying, re charge the batteries and do something else. i know it will come back soon. Probably when you least expect it.

    Bradley,I don’t think that medication prevents a person from writing funny stuff. But I do think we change–dependent upon what’s going on in our lives.You may be using your creative side–which produces the funny stuff–to work on the design projects (which aren’t funny but require a lot of creativity).Just a thought…Susan

    I think your just stressed, hard to be funny when your stressed. I know I’m like that….and unfortunately a lot lately.
