  • Getting control to work around depression | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    a personal failing I really believed this when it came to writing and other creative endeavors It s so sad to think of all the years of creativity I lost because of these thoughts These days I know that I don t have to feel like working in order to get started or to finish a project The desire to keep working may not be very strong but it does show up eventually I say to myself Julie the longer you wait to want to do this the more chances it will never get done Do it now There are no other options Be kind to yourself I recently had stomach surgery Everyone was very concerned and often told me not to do so much My friends and family came over and helped with cleaning and drove me around town They said You have to take care of yourself Julie so that you can heal properly I agreed and although I felt that I was being a wimp for needing so much help it was easy for me to accept that my body had limitations I needed to respect The real irony is that my depression is far worse than any stomach surgery it s more dangerous and takes a lot more management This is the stigma of depression when in reality it s just as physically significant as trauma to the body I took care of my physical body following the surgery Likewise I know that I need to be just as good to myself when depression is making it hard for me to function Let the real you take over I try to use all these tools in my daily life I still have the depression most of the time but I accept that this is how it is for me If I want to finish a project I will have to rise above the depression and let the real me take over My last book Take Charge of Bipolar Disorder took six months to write On the days I could barely get started I reminded myself that I didn t have to like what I was doing but I was going to do it anyway the time I spent worrying about not doing something took far more time than the actual task On some days I cried while I was writing On others I was sure the depression was going to kill me but I kept going I really did say to myself Julie the depression wants you to be sick today but you re a professional and you can finish this book And I met my deadlines The most interesting thing is that when I look at the book now I honestly can t tell what part was written when I was severely depressed and what part was written when I felt stable I definitely still have days when I sit around and get really down on myself These days are really tough but I have

    that got in the way of my grandiose plans My temper would flare and I would erupt leaving our children doe eyed and hurt I would eventually apologize and slink off to my room under a cloud of guilt Other days work seemed overwhelming I would stare at the screen for what seemed like hours Daily tasks that were once second nature now seemed daunting and insurmountable Everyday stresses would have me close to tears On weekends I would sleep for hours trying to escape the ache of self loathing and hopelessness The warnings signs were there and I was unable to break the pattern myself Thankfully my wife was courageous enough to confront me and challenge me to seek help We all need that person in our lives Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our emotions that we lose objectivity Consider giving a loved one permission to let you know if they sense things are not right Ask for feedback on the behaviors they are seeing The truth even when spoken in love can be hard to hear But resist the urge to get defensive Ask yourself Is there any truth to what they are saying What would
