Backpacking and Bipolar II. Taking Manic Depression on tour.
My mood seems to keep elevating a little bit before I go to bed but when I wake up in the morning I am back to square one. I have no reason to feel stressed or worn out but here I am. I’m kicking against negative self talk pretty much constantly, and it is exhausting.
I’d love to hear from any of you who have serious ruminations about how you lower the volume or obliterate them completely. I repeat to myself that they aren’t real, but the more energy I have the more layers of negative thought there are to try and dispose of. The best thing I can hope for is utter exhaustion, but then the rest of the symptoms of depression get worse and I lose more time.
Come at me, what do you do when your head noise starts up?
