What I’m Eating

Since I haven’t really talked much about what I’m eating, I thought I might do a post on that. I’ve always said I have a “dog food” diet. Meaning I pretty much eat the same few things every day.  And on this diet that’s not really changed much.

For breakfast every day I have scrambled eggs with cheese and mushrooms. Sometimes I throw in peppers if I happen to have some on hand. But for the most pa

Quotes by Alyssa Reyans  (?)

“Bipolar robs you of that which is you. It can take from you the very core of your being and replace it with something that is completely opposite of who and what you truly are. Because my bipolar went untreated for so long, I spent many years looking in the mirror and seeing a person I did not recognize or understand. Not only did bipolar rob me of my sanity, but it robbed me of my ability to see beyond the space it dictated me to look. I no longer could tell reality from fantasy, and I walked in a world no longer my own.”
Alyssa Reyans, Letters from a Bipolar Mother

“Except you cannot outrun insanity, anymore than you can outrun your own shadow.”
Alyssa Reyans, Letters from a Bipolar Mother

“The doctor’s words made me understand what happened to me was a dark, evil, and shameful secret, and by association I too was dark, evil, and shameful. While it may not have been their intention, this was the message my clouded mind received. To escape the confines of the hospital, I once again disassociated myself from my emotions and numbed myself to the pain ravaging my body and mind. I acted as if nothing was wrong and went back to performing the necessary motions to get me from one day to the next. I existed but I did not live.”
