Oddly, the best and worst for years. High highs and low lows with worryingly little gap between them. And very little triggering each. Been here before. Need to be careful. The next month is crucial.

Oh don't worry, I'll be fine. For no reason that I can explain I am curiously self-aware about this shit and have been sort of self-regulating for decades. I let it simmer a bit too much sometimes, but it has never properly boiled over. I have my methods of coping/releasing. And this is one of them. So far so good.

Gone a week without my meds. I notice a sudden difference in temperament but holding my own. Still feel better if pay week was this week and I could get some.

I had a wobble recently, falling into a period of despair as I thought I was about to become unemployed again. This time I reached out for help and found a session of telephone counselling did a world of good. As it turned out, I later found that I would be moving to a new job in the new year. I still feel sad that I'm leaving my old team, but hopeful I'll succeed in the new role.
