It's been a busy day. I cleaned, sang, danced, played with the animals, did chores, and even practiced violin some! It's been such a nice change ~ I can only hope it continues. I'm praying that it's the Abilify leaching out of my system and not hypomania, because if it's the Abilify going away then maybe the good mood will stick around for awhile.
I got some really sad news today. My friend Eric lost his niece who was young, spirited and beautiful. He's very heartbroken and if you know him please stop by his page and wish him and the family the best. It's so hard when you lose someone so young and vital.
Right now I'm just hanging out with my kid while he draws Angry Birds (from the game). He's obsessed with them and it tends to make me crazy but if he's happy then it's good. He focuses on one or two things and that's all he does for months. It's part of the Asperger's Syndrome. But he's still smart and wonderful to me no matter what. He's so funny and exasperating and energetic and idealistic and it's just so hard to explain him to those that don't know him. He's amazing.
I've come down somewhat, but I feel the next wave of the hypomania coming on. That's why I'm so talkative (writing-wise) today. I just have to get some of these thoughts out of my head or else my brain will burst!
It's been raining all day and I've been cooped up in the house. Frustrating when I feel like this. I wanted so badly to go for a bike ride or a brisk walk or something to get rid of some of the energy because it makes me edgy. It also makes me prone to irritable outbursts. Kind of a double-edged sword if you know what I mean.
I sound so crappy right now on violin! I really need to practice some every day. Even if it's just scales I need to do it. I think I'm going to go pull out my viola and play on that for awhile. I love it's haunting sound ~ so deep and harrowing. I think that's what I'll go do. I have to put Zach to bed soon so it'll have to wait until then. (sigh)
I'm going to go tune up to play ~ and hope the rest of you all have a wonderful night!
