Found this draft scrap of writing that I wrote 17 days ago. My hypomanic racing thoughts and insomnia did lead to finding solutions, but the solutions are long-term, not short term. Patience is required now.
4:15 am: third time I awoke this evening. My mind will not rest, will not cease looking for solutions to the health crisis in our family. Unfortunately crises such as this – mine being age related health issues incapaciating my parents, specifically my mother’s stroke over a week ago – can trigger mood cycling – for me hypomania.
Grief is a bitch.
I worry, too, about my son. My husband took last week and this week off work to pinch hit for me at home.
