Cost-Benefit Analysis

This morning, after getting myself out of bed I vacuumed the kitchen floor and the area around the bed. It’s quite remarkable how much that improves my quality of life. The only reason I didn’t do it sooner was because it seemed like an impossible task. In reality, it took two minutes.

Becky wrote about this just the other day, too. I read her entry and despite the fact that she made other observations, that’s what stuck in my mind.

I did laundry today, too. That was helpful and not as hard as I seem to remember.

Without a doubt, the most obvious explanation as to why I’ve actually managed to do these things today is the fact that I feel somewhat better about Danica and about our relationship. That probably needs a lot of explaining. (Oh well.) I think that I was able to get across more of how I feel and why I feel the way I do. Ironically, it was in the form of sad emotional outbursts (and I stress sad, not argumentative) but it seems like those are more effective sometimes.

Now, out to coffee.

  1. This is almost always the case, finding out that things are less difficult than previously thought. The challenge is to REMEMBER that, as well as the benefits of “serving yourself”. This can be a powerful way to combat depression.

  2. Hi, I am a college student reading your bipolar blog. I am doing
    a psychology project on this disorder. Is there anyway that you
    could give me an example of a high and low in your life? This is
    so interesting.
