It’s been a rollercoaster ride of a summer. Not in a good way.
I try and stay away from heavy topics on this blog but my summer has been a little disconcerting.
I’ve been riding a rollercoaster of mood swings most of the summer. The highs and lows are troubling and tiring. The good news is I’ve made an appointment to see a biochemist to see whether my moods can be regulated. I have been resisting chemical solutions as I’m not a big believer in western medicine.
The highs are better than the lows. High productivity, accelerated idea generation combined with restlessness and little sleep. The lows are not so great: tears, depressed mood and loads of sleep.
This cyclical pattern has been present for years. As much as I like the productivity I don’t like the lows at all, I’d really like a more even life.
The impacts have been far reaching on my life, my relationship and work.
Here’s hoping the solution lies in brain chemistry so I can look forward to smoother sailing, I will keep you posted.
