Bipolar disorder II now becomes BD I with rapid cycling “mixed episodes”. Moods change variably throughout the day and one day all moods, feelings, emotions come together to have a party in your brain without your consent and you have a meltdown…. Plan A… increase Seroquel XR 400mg to XR 600mg. If this does not work Plan B is to add an additional 100mg dose of lamictal in the afternoon, increasing my lamictal from 300mg to 400mg…. OR Place C…. If all else fails we will try and new antidepressant.
I must apologize to all of those whom I have found beautiful works on your blogs that I had wished to share with others. On my blog it gives full credit and states where the post originated. I never intend to steal your works as I hope the same for mine. I think there has been a partial design flaw when the reblogging was instituted. There should be an option for your blog to allow a reblog. Maybe there is a feature as such and is not widely known. I am not very familiar with the mainframe of this particular site.
I again apologize for any misunderstanding of the reblog button. I personally will no longer reblog any other work unless expressed to otherwise. Hopefully there will be a better way to share each other’s works without a “reblog” option that gives the blogger more control over the sharing content.
a goodbye would be when I fall off the sky,
into the arms of genteel earth, to embrace
the two tomorrows, of existing no more,
putrefy my furtive flesh, black bones into
the granular sand, returning to the birth,
that watered the roots of the world tree,
of which I came out to be a red raw fruit,
sheathed by the leaves, that shielded it
from sly storms, but every cold seeps in,
to their unaware natures, applying layers
of first frost, ingraining icicles within, and
as this youngling falls off before maturation,
the seeds do not burst, when it splits open
into a chamber of plain platitude of emptiness

I LOVE THISSSS!!! ❤
“You’re a writer. And that’s something better than being a millionaire. Because it’s something holy.”
“There are significant moments in everyone’s day that can make good literature. That’s what you write about.”
“You just have to sit down and write. I never saw myself as a literary figure. The phrase, “writer’s block” would sound a little pretentious in my mouth.”
“If you write a hundred short stories and they’re all bad, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You fail only if you stop writing.”
“When I sit down on my writing desk, time seems to vanish. I think it’s a wonderful way to spend one’s life.”
“Watch children at play. They are terribly serious. The same is true with writing: you get caught up in the rhythm. That’s when it really gets to be complete play.”

I cannot believe this is my final Life Lately in Photos before Christmas. I’m excited about the holiday, but can time slow down a little bit, please?
Tomorrow my best friend Karin is coming over for a marathon Christmas cookie baking day! We’re going to make all our favorite cookies with Christmas music and movies on in the background. Then it’s time for me to prepare for lots…

I recently read Donna Tartt’s most recent novel, The Goldfinch, which I absolutely loved. Reviews had referred to The Goldfinch as “Dickensian,” and I enjoyed it so much that it led me to read my first Dickens novel. My father has urged me to read Dickens for years; one of his favorite authors, he just has never been able to believe that I didn’t have any interest in the author. Now that I’ve finally crossed that bridge and read my first Dickens novel, I have to admit that my dad was right, and Charles Dickens is right up my alley. I just finished Great Expectations, and thought I’d share a few of my thoughts:
- I had an idea that reading Dickens would be time-consuming, and I just don’t have a lot of time. That turned out to not be the case at all. Because Great Expectations was originally
