My moods have been swinging back and forth a bit lately... Going from a hypomanic, hopeful, productive and happy state to a depressed, less hopeful demeanor. I've been staying sane though, in that my depression hasn't gotten as bad as it could be, and it's not yet effecting my relationship or work, because I'm having enough hypomania to make up for the down moments.
This means that I might be increasing my lithium, but I'm going to wait a bit because I enjoy the hypomania. It's the productive kind with lots of ideas.
I know that part of the cause for these sea-saw moods is because of some additional stress I've been under lately. I don't really feel like going into the cause of the stress, but let's just say that I'm trying to make it be less stress!
I have been spending more time on Squidoo lately. It's a great place to make a website (they call them lenses) and if you give it a try, follow this link because I'll get some referral credit.
I've made about $300 from Squidoo since I started and so part of it is about money - If I write pages that are popular, I make money - but also I love the community. There are so many bright and interesting people on Squidoo. Oh sure, there are some people who are there just for the money, but many more who write about themselves and topics that they care about, and I'm proud to be part of such a great community!
I wrote a couple of pages about myself recently, that I thought you might be interested in -

Well I hope that everyone is well!
