Bipolar in October

Well as you know I’m back on quitiapine , only 200mg and I’ve seen my new shrink today and its being put up to 300mg over the next two weeks.

As you may remember I came off it completely because off weight gain and put onto abilify which I lost over a stone BUT the effects mentally weren’t great in fact I felt quite ill so I made the decision to be more stable but a stone heavier, well what can I say , yes I have put 3lbs on but im calmer, focused and enjoying life yet again

THE GOOD
Family

My Mum, Dad, Stepmum, Hubby, Son, Friends have been very supportive this month. I’ve had a lot on and they have helped me so much. Michelle has had her baby girl called Lily and Lucy is still pregnant (thank god…..she lost a baby not so long back).
Home life is much calmer and I’m not stressing everyone out lol.

Work
I’m very lucky in the fact that I have two jobs that I love. Firstly my job at the Estate Agents which I’ve been doing for nine years and then my new venture of a Haberdashery Stall is going great. We have started to sell fabrics too which we already had in stock from months ago. I do believe that I have a fairy Godmother looking over me, it was fate that the shop fell through and I’m convinced that I wouldn’t have done so well if I had gone ahead with it. The people of the town have been very supportive and very kind

Crafts
I have completed a baby quilt this month and have one on order, I will post pics. The craft fair went well and we have more events booked in. I’ve took two bookings for big festivals next summer and everything is looking good. I now have set aside more time for the crafts I love.

Mental Health
I have a little anxiety here and there but that what keeps you on your toes I suppose but apart from that its all good.

I’m now into the run up til Christmas …….I’m officially excited!!!!!!! I love cooking and preparing party food and having a house full…I just love entertaining
