The Twelve Days of Bipolar

December 17, 2016

One of my favorite things to do is make up new lyrics to old familiar songs. Especially Christmas music. Sometimes I’m wildly creative, sometimes not, but I always seem to come up with something fun. Here for your enjoyment (I hope) is this year’s version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

On the 12th day of Christmas, bipolar gave to me:

12 monthly med checks

11 therapy sessions

10 pounds of weight gain

9 pills at bedtime

8 weeks of depression

7 days of mania

6 hours in the ER

5 mg Zyprexa

4 side effects

3 mood swings

2 new prescriptions

and a Happy Light thrown in for free!

      Hi Donna! Thank you for your kind words, I’m actually blushing. 😊 I’m one of the writers at AN too, along with being a Guide. My username is VivaLasViejas. Small world, isn’t it? Anyway, thanks for visiting!
