Tic toc time
When i am in quiet time with rapid cycling bipolar I occasionally experience what I call tic toc time where time goes really slowly and life seems arduous and boring and I don't want to do anything and life seems colorless and flat. It is all part of the depressed times of my cycling. I have been trying to think of ways to cope with it and have major successes. I make myself see my friends and have company, I go on my daily walk, I keep well groomed and the house in order. I have now come up with an idea where I have a deck of cards with suggestions of what to do...like go to cafe for coffee, go and do some photography, flip through magazines and i also have a list of 20 items at my mums where I often have trouble. Next time I have tic toc time I will draw out a card or get mum to select a number and I will do that task for up to an hour and see how that changes things. Wish me luck.
lots of love from susan in australia
