Why I don't drink alcohol....

Whenever I drink alcohol, even just the tiniest bit of wine, my arms ache and feel heavy.  I physically don't feel good. So I don't drink.

I just thought I would throw this out there.   There used to be a time when I could drink without feeling this way, but sometime in the last 5 years or so this changed.

So, I always turn down alcohol, and people think I'm doing it for some psychological reason.  Nope.. I have no problem with being buzzed. If marijuana were legal, I'd be smoking that.  But alcohol doesn't make me feel good.

I'm Still Here

The holidays were difficult for me moodwise, and I've gone through a few days of depression. Now I'm feeling more normal but not yet very inspired to write much. So this is just an update to tell you that I'm still around.

I've thought about if I should end this blog, but I like to do my part in helping out other people with Bipolar Disorder.  I've been so greatful for all of the Bipolar information I've found online, the other blogs I follow, etc, that I'd like to continue to contribute to this wonderful internet.

Bipolar moods can make for craziness.  It's easy to push delete when you aren't feeling good.  I've resisted the delete button, and hope to add more helpful content this year.

I wish the best to all of you in 2012.
