I know I'm not posting anything here. I wish I were. I had just gotten into a bit of rhythm, and then my mental health butted in and I'm doing only a small fraction of the things I like to do.
Jenny Lawson is so right when she reminds people that depression lies. It straight up does. And it's so good at it since it lives in your brain and knows just the wrong things to say. But my favorite mantra when I'm on either side of the bipolar spectrum is "It will pass." Because it will. It always, always does. And then I'll pick back up where I left off.
(The key, I have learned, is not to mess things up too badly in the mean time.)
That wasn't my point tonight though. I wanted to say that even though I haven't been writing things here, I've still spent plenty of time online. D'uh. And I haven't really been able to keep my virtual mouth shut. Instead of writing real blogs entries that take some amout of caring and attention, I have been on fire with doing more mindless things. Like pinning on my pintrest boards. Reblogging on my Tumblr. And saying stuff about General Hospital on my GH tumblr/blog. So just in case you're having Shelly withdrawls, you can see what's been on my mind in those places.
