The UNperks of Running a Website AND having Bipolar

As many of you have probably noticed, our posts haven’t quite been regular in the last couple of months. Unfortunately I’ve been struggling with a depressive episode and hoped that taking a little break from AaB might be the answer to getting better. And perhaps it was in some sense, but it didn’t really solve a whole lot.

HUGE props to Christi who did a wonderful job keeping things rolling for me this past month. She too, unfortunately, is battling a heavy depressive episode and is currently not able continue helping at the current time. I have confidence she’ll be back soon however and AaB should be running like a boss come the holiday season.

I know MANY emails and questions have gone unanswered but I can promise you I am going to do my best to catch up. I apologize greatly for the delay, but I can assure you, my answer emails would not have been of great quality during my cave dwelling days.

These are definitely the UNperks of running a website about bipolar WHILE also struggling with the illness myself. There are times where I just can’t do it. Hell, last week I couldn’t even brush my teeth … or get out of bed … or shower … or leave my house. We’ve all been there, and we’ll probably all be there again someday. But the good news is, it passes. It always passes.

ALWAYS passes …

It may not always seem like it will pass, but I did find that by not fighting it, surrounding myself with people who understood and could be supportive, and just letting it come while also making sure to have others remind me it would pass when I couldn’t seem to remind or convince myself, it passed much quicker.

Needless to say, PLEASE bear with us guys. We’re trying to take care of ourselves so that we can get back to helping you!

  1. Can’t believe how that captures just the ” cave dwelling ” I have been doing over the last 2 weeks I usually have a 2-3 month depressed period hoping have been trying to get motivated but it seems impossible at the moment, great post its finally great for me to have somewhere to visit whet epeooeninferstand what it is like being bp

  2. Good for you for not giving up! I just found this site, and think it’s pretty awesome. It is very difficult for non-bipolars to understand the intense struggle we have in just being consistent with regular daily stuff.
