Taking A Hiatus (and this is not an April Fool’s joke)

Dear Readers,

I will be taking a short hiatus from blogging as I am dealing with some issues related to my Bipolar Disorder. I have been in a BD depression for several weeks now and have had some days so bad, I considered suicide.

The main issue is that I need to change my medications again as my current regiment has stopped working. I have been living with debilitating brain zaps that feel like an electrical current zipping through my brain. These leave me feeling dizzy and disoriented, and being on the computer is difficult during those times.

I will be back!! I refuse to let this defeat me, but I do need to take some time away until I have my BD back under control. It’s hard enough living with the physical pain of Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, D.I.S.H., and more, but adding the mental health burden has become too much.

Thank you for your loyalty. Comments are appreciated.

  1. Depression, I am trying to claw my way out and no communication allowed with my doctor so says the receptionist. Hang in Pam I know how frightening, confusing and I know too the very personal you are courageous in speaking about. I pray for healing so management of this illness will come to be. Gentle loving hugs. You are loved. Xo

  2. Dear Pam. I just saw your post. Thinking and praying for you dear friend. Let me know if you need help with anything at all.

  3. Oh Pam, I’m so sorry. I wish I had seen this sooner but I’ve fallen so behind. It’s not an easy decision to make to step back but it’s important so you can focus your attention and energies where needed. I’m just sorry you’re having to go through this so badly lately… No pressure at all but I’m always around if ever you do want someone to chat with at all, but of course I totally understand if you don’t. Look after YOU and I hope the med change can be as smooth as possible. Sending lots of hugs & oodles of love  ♥

  4. Sending you love and hugs, you are dearly missed. Hope you are healing. Extra challenges of any kind are difficult for all of us with chronic illness and we understand and are thinking of you. Thanks so much for explaining what is happening. I will be sharing some of your recent posts at the Fibro Friday link up so that others can benefit
