So far, so good

I know it's early days but, hey, you gotta start somewhere. I've acheived all my goals except getting cognitive therapy. I'm going to hold off on the therapy for the moment. Two reasons: 1) I don't really like my present psychologist anymore 2) To find a new one means going back to page one in terms of my background and, trust me, there are many, many chapters to get through until they'll be up to speed.

The best part so far has been running on the beach. I forgot the high that you get after cardio-vascular excercise - you know, the stuff that makes you puff and pant. Long beach walks are cool but thay don't get the endorphines buzzing like the puff and pant stuff. And if I'm not to smoke weed, I desperately need another form of high. The only natural high I can think of is cardio vascular excersise. I used to be addicted to it in my non-depressive state several years ago.

One person who has inspired me in all of this is Willbefine, a regular commentor on this blog. Whilst I was in my rants about rapid-cycling, Willbefine, a fellow BiPolar, is cycling alone on his bicyle 2000 miles through Ukraine. Kudos to him!

Whilst on the subject of daily goals I discovered this eggcellent site: It's a classic Web 2.0 site, presently in beta, and I think it's gonna be a daily visit for BPG for many years to come.


  1. I agree with you when it comes to the high you feel after a cardio work out...the problem is to actually get off my butt and do it. I congratulate you on your new ventures. Good luck and keep up the good work.

  2. Hey how's it going? I like your blog. I'm sort of a long time reader second time commenter. I've got a blog of my own now. It's called A Bipolar Perspective. check it out at
