Bipolar When It Counts

{August 7, 2012}   New “therapy”

Another long weekend has come and gone, and I have been in a surprisingly good mood. I don’t know if this is just an upturn in my bipolar, or if its something else. I wish I did know, but at the same time, I really don’t care. I’m just going to revel in the good feelings and hope they last. At least for a little while.

I admit, Saturday started out kind of bad. I did a lot of crying and Hubby did a lot of comforting. Everything did work out, and now all is better. So much better.

We adopted a couple of rescue digs a couple of weeks ago. They are so cute. Sydnee is the female,

and Robbie is the male.


Robbie in his little Scottish vest. It has a tan too, but he shook that off right away. Also pre-bath

A brother and sister duo, both fixed, and seriously neglected. They are shihzu-bichon/pomeranian cross, so lots of fur. One of the first things I had to do was shave them both, as their fur was terribly matted and dirty. So haircut and a bath. And cut their claws. They did.t look like they had been groomed in months.  And timid. I am pretty sure they were beaten, as even getting close to them with a hand out to pet them, even if I’m standing straight up, they will both cower.  It is so sad, as they are such good dogs. They unfortunately don’t know any commands, even basic ones like sit and stay.  But we are working on it. They are eager to learn and to please.

I had been told that having pets was good for people with mental illness. I have always had cats but I have, so far, found dogs to be completely different.

Follow along as I explore this with Hubby and our two new additions.
