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.
