Hello my friend,
This morning I am tired. I got up with a headache at 3:45 and finally gave up trying to sleep at 4:30 a.m. I plan to catch a nap sometime today to make up for my loss of sleep.
Sometimes when things like this happen I feel afraid. Afraid of what happened in the past when I got manic and afraid of what might happen in the future if bipolar problems surface again!
At times like this I pray. I can choose to trust and to use the tools and ideas he has already given me so that I can stay “sane.” I am using will use tools like personal peace papers, prayer, medication, meditation, melatonin to get more sleep, listening to a recording about feeling overwhelmed and other ideas I’ve learned in the past. I am thankful for the blessings of a supportive husband, family and friends and an assurance that there are even angels who wait to help me as I reach heavenward.
At times like this I am also thankful for the sun that will soon begin lighting the day with the promise of God’s unfailing help.
Thank you, Father, for sunrises.
