"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

So it seems as if I am overdue for a blog post, but truthfully I am not sure what to write.  I have just recently emerged from the month-long, dark tunnel of the worst bipolar episode I have ever experienced.  Were this a year or so ago, I would probably post all the gory details, but that just doesn't feel right anymore.

I no longer want to post every little detail of my life to this blog.  I have real-life friends now--very good, dear, precious ones--and that may be part of it, but I also believe that as we grow up we come to have more of a need for privacy.  Or not.  Could be that I just don't know what I'm talking about.

School is going as well as I could ask for given current circumstances.  I cannot say I am doing what I consider well, but I am pulling low As and Bs instead of Bs and Cs, so that is something.  I have three really good school friends, my roommates, and three more friends, so I consider myself well set in that department.

About chronic pain: Prior to the aforementioned bipolar episode, I was completing a pain management routine that took approximately an hour and a half almost every day.  For a variety of reasons, the episode made that so difficult that I just stopped.  I do plan to get back into that over Spring break--pray for me that I can!

If you so happen to want the gory details (and fair warning: they are not pleasant) of my episode, let me know, and I can tell you privately via email or something like that.

In sum total, coming out of last month, I am glad to be alive.  That is all.

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
