Hello. My name is Bats and I’m a bipolarized alcoholic. And no bipolarized is not a real word, I own it and have rights to it. HA! No really but it’s hard to start a post out like that.
I hate being Bipolar and I hate being an alcoholic.
I hate loving alcohol more than anything else in the world.
I hate the fact that every couple weeks I feel manic, uncomfortable, crazy.
I hate the fact that after feeling manic, I hate myself so much that I think the world would be better without me.
I hate the fact that I self medicate with alcohol.
I love the fact that I can admit all of this.
I love the fact that I have this website where I can admit this at.
I love the fact that (to a point) I am safe here.
I am GRATEFUL for little things; like a cup of decaffeinated coffee or a sigh from my dog.
I am GRATEFUL for the moon because it makes me feel comfortable.
I am GRATEFUL because this post can be called Keep It Simple Saturday and there was nothing simple about it. I guess that actually means I am GRATEFUL for tolerance.
You have a dog? I don’t recall hearing about him/her before. Dogs are so great. Unconditional love and all. No small thing that.
i’m grateful i get to share the ether with someone i respect as much as i do you.
I love that you have the capacity for love.
We don’t judge you…
Well… maybe your spelling now and then… but I am bad at spelling too, so not me… uh uh… no way.
We love that you’re strong enough to share what you’re dealing with and how you’re dealing with it, so that maybe the next person down the line has a better understanding, either of themselves or someone they know.
