My Mood Diary 📔 July 2020

“This is a candid account of what I was experiencing at the start of 2020. I’d advise discretion before reading this as I wouldn’t want to reignite bad memories or instigate negative thoughts for anyone.”

Stuart Sanderson

These are a few exerts from my mood diary from the beginning of last year. I hadn’t been seen by a psychiatrist at this point and I was really, really struggling and not in control of myself.

I’m a 38 year old male who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I have found it as a new chapter in my life that has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on myself and everything around me.

      1. You know what.. There are times when we feel frustrated, anger and irritation overcomes us.. And life becomes a boredom.. There’s a loss of sleep.. Loss of happiness… And many more.. But do you know.. Indian classical music.. Or the bhajans in Hindi.. Gives another level of peace and joy.. Even if you don’t understand the words but their melodies and rhythm brings optimism in the environment.. I would recommend you.. Or maybe request you to here them once.. Or if you want.. I can send you few links..

    1. Everything seems like a battle at the moment. I spoke with my GP today and he is really happy with my progress. The results of the blood tests were spot on, my weight has only gone up 1kg with the Depakote and no extreme behavioural episodes. I however feel like I am overweight by much more. I guess it is because it’s all accumulated on my belly and it doesn’t look right. The blood tests can show the medication impact on organs etc but why do they not have the same interest in seeing the results of my brain activity? As bipolar is a mental illness and mental illness effects the brain. I’m confused? Have I got a valid point?

  1. You do have a point. I wish that I understood the scientific process of determining prescription efficacy and side effects.
    I am glad to hear that your GP is happy with your progress. Hopefully the side effects that you are experiencing will balance out over time. Best wishes for today.
