Bipolar Life-Braving the Storm

This past weekend, we braced for an ‘epic’ snowstorm moving in to Colorado. Kids were excited for snow days, and, well… so was I! The stores, packed with people preparing to hunker down, had plows on full alert.

I woke up this morning to a mere dusting of snow that is, in Colorado, laughable. My mom and I decided yesterday, our weather forecasters have probably moved here from California!

Still, if this had been that epic storm they were calling for, it is nice to have that advanced warning. Large-scale weather phenomena can now be predicted, and warnings are sent out to those who live in the area. People have the opportunity to prepare for the storm that is coming. They rely on that warning to be ready to care for their family and home.

If only our life came with the technology to warn us when the storm was coming

“This is the Mental Health Awareness System..The national bipolar service has issued a severe manic storm that has the potential to create great havoc. We advise that you seek medical attention, make sure your meds are filled, pray, and be aware at all times. Thank you.”

However, there is no technology to provide you a mental health alert. However, we take the time to learn our triggers, to seek help through professionals we trust and support groups that understand. We educate our families and ourselves, we use the medications that help. We commit to pray, stay active and be honest about where our state of mind is. We are our own ‘warning system’. When faced with a positive attitude, and the right tools, we can succeed!

I pray that your day is blessed, and that you are doing ok. If you need prayer, please, just let me know.

Yours in Christ,
