Well, actually a bit better lately(!) (Yea! ) The bipolar is behaving itself, and that helps in tackling the BDD, which I've been trying to work on. (It's my current focus issue.) A bit of hypomania sure helps give some measure of "can do" confidence that's often squashed by depression. Not to say I'm not still spending an inordinate amount of time obsessing(!), but I don't feel *quite* so TOTAL crap about myself over it. Hey, every little bit gladly accepted...

showers are overrated anyway

has anyone actually stopped to think about what you're actually doing?

it's like standing in a really heavy rainfall, just this time you have soap as well

and you have to do it again and again later on, so...

plus, if you're like me, and don't go anywhere, it makes it even more pointless

Kind of questioning today. I've been working on my thinking, and there's been some progress there, but a situation is throwing my mind into questioning mode. Maybe I'm just kidding myself. I'm intellectually aware I'm being illogical, but that doesn't keep my heart from hurting over it and thinking maybe it's been a colossal waste of time trying. I KNOW it's illogical! So now I'm working on that.

Trying to talk some sense into myself. So yeah, some setback today.
