Got an earlier than usual start to this day.  It’s still dark as I write this.  Got only five hours of sleep last night.  I had been getting eight or so for weeks.  I hope this change in sleep patterns isn’t a prelude to problems.  But overall I feel quite well.  Sometimes I do get kind of lonely though.  Socializing over facebook and phone just isn’t the same as seeing someone in person.  But I don’t socialize much in person because it seems that so many people I come into contact with are in foul and irritable moods all the time.  Don’t know what to make of it.  I just don’t want that negativity rubbing off on me.  I don’t have the energy or the time to deal with needless drama anymore.  I’m too old for it.  As it is I’m content to stay alone for the time being.

      • I absolutely understand, I just wasn’t sure if you wanted to talk about blogging off the topic of this specific blog. I’m just curious about why you like blogging and your process. I started blogging a while back and part of me doesn’t understand why I feel the need to share my experiences. It’s freeing and I feel like my history may help others. I just wanted to connect with another blogger–if you understand where I’m coming from?

      • I like blogging because I am not photogenic enough to be a youtube star and I can’t sing and dance very well 🙂 All joking aside though, it gives me a way to tell people what life with mental illness is like for those of us with mental illness. I have always been a good story teller and presenting in public has never bothered me much. And blogging does seem to be a more civil median to communicate ideas than youtube or most other social media. If I ever were to do a video channel, I would do only voice overs and I wouldn’t allow comments. But I love writing and I’m decent at it. And blogging gives me a better audience than traditional print. And it allows me much more direct interaction with the reader than even if I wrote a best seller and went on the lecture circuit.
