If you remember, I was diagnosed with Bipolar type 1, and now I found out I also have Myalgic Encephalomyalitis, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This means I spend most of the time in bed, but occasionally I'll still have those fits of mania, and I'll run around like a literally crazy person and wear myself out to the point of near death. It's a vicious cycle. The good news is I finally found a medication for the Bipolar that's working pretty well, so I'm no longer a danger to myself or others. I wish that were a joke. :)
I let the shop and the blogging go because I wanted to focus on my Bible ministry and I didn't want any distractions since I have a brain the size of a pea. That's still my goal, but since I spend most of my life horizontally, I have plenty of time to waste on the internet. But I don't want it to be wasted, I want to be a productive, contributing member of society in my own small way. So here I am! Again.
My interests have grown in the time I was away from blogging, and I hope to share one tutorial or DIY idea every week. It's good for me to have a little challenge, I think (a challenge besides showering.) I'll also be talking about what it's like to have CFS, and increase awareness about chronic illnesses a little bit. I want to be encouraging but also have a place to whine and complain, since I'm sure you're all dying to know every sticky detail of what it's like to be me. You're welcome. I'll also probably make you look at pictures of my kid. It'll be a blast.
