Smile The Bipolar Happy Thread (non-manic happy of course!)

Most of our threads are started for un-fun reasons ...which is okay and what the subforum is here for. But I thought it might be helpful to start a thread dedicated to the positive. Progress, praises, fellowship, humour - anything we can share to encourage a smile. A place to remind us on days when reading the harder stuff is just not bearable, that there are contented and even joyful times.

Allye!

I was just thinking the same thing yesterday when I was typing a post here. My post dealt with things I'm learning in my Rapid Symptom Reduction support group (RSR). It's about confronting negative thoughts with truth or positive thoughts. I struggle with the positive thoughts so I thought a thread where I looked for the positive of each day would be good. They have us do this in group. The have us fill out something called a "Star Chart" which goes along with your idea for this thread. I'll make another post of something good from yesterday.

Peace,
LC

Alert August 19

Yesterday Aussie_Gareth and I went to Angel Island. I didn't get lost getting there. I didn't let traffic bother me. The island was beautiful and I got to see lots of deer. The guided tram tour was very informative. The view from shore was BEAUTIFUL. The history behind the island was surprising. I would LOVE to go back some day.

Top 5 Reasons I'm Thankful:

1. I was able to just sit and worship in the sanctuary of my church the other day.

2. My mom is in better spirits, if not better health.

3. I didn't have to stress out about not having a job this summer.

4. The drama with my suspended license ended w/o me totally freaking out.

5. I like my new MD, my therapist, and my RSR group.

*ok... no.6, after years of not believing I'd live past age 30... and all my suicidal thoughts and attempts... I'm celebrating my 36th birthday.


Praise God!

OK ALLYE!

You can't start a happy slappy thread and not post again!!! There has got to be SOMETHING good going on for you... and EVERYONE ELSE WHO POSTS IN THE BIPOLAR THREAD. Let's hear from people.

Even if it's as simple as being happy to have CF or you dog licked you in the face... or your boss didn't notice you were 15 minutes late. C'mon people share the joy. Otherwise I will feel like I'm talking to myself... which is not a bad thing since I do it all the time... but why spend time posting to myself, eh?

My Good for the Day:

My neighborhood is SILENT. No kids on scooters, no loud music from my next door neighbor, no Harley noise from my landlord... just the gentle sound of the breeze and the hum of distant traffic. Peace and QUIET!! Can I get an "amen?"

I've got LAMB CHOPS cooking. I developed a love relationship w/lamb when I was a missionary in Australia. YUMMMMM. Praise God for THE LAMB... and all those random little lambs that end up in my oven.

I'm having a wonderful day.. It started a little bit on the high side, but taking my medication calmed me down a bit. Now I'm just enjoying the rest of this beautiful day.
