My Bi-Polar Poems

It's another day and I can't seem to find
where exactly it is I left my murky mind
due to another sleepless night
cause I failed to take my meds again last night.

It's hard to believe that others take
recreational drugs to emulate
what my brian does naturally
stuck again on a high, oh no, help me.

Being Bi-Polar means it does more than drain
but causes me at times to go a little bit insane
the intensity of my thoughts I can't escape
oh I wish I knew how to keep them in restraints.

Tonight I better take my medicine
so tomorrow I won't be lead into any type of sin
against anyone just because their there
cause chances are I wouldn't even be aware. 

Tomorrow night I hope I don't repeat
the actions that lead me into the same defeat
So I'll take my meds and get the guaranteed sleep
so my sanity I will have a chance to keep.




Author's Notes/Comments: 

As I've said in my profile I suffer from a mental illness known as Bi-Polar I.  I tend to go nights without sleep unless I take my sleep meds which I hate taking because they cause me to feel so groggy.  I'm in a constant battle trying to medicate my mental disease appropriately dispite myself.  I happen to like the manic episodes.  So here is an example of my inner battle thoughts.

Have you ever tried taking Melatonin as a sleep aid? I love it when I have trouble falling asleep. It is the chemical that our brains naturally produce to induce sleep. Doesn't make you me groggy at all. Don't know if the effects would be different with Bi-Polar. But I'd say it's worth trying. Meds suck!

Other than that, there is a breathing meditation that could help you to quiet your mind. If you download this book Healing for free there is a short guided meditation that is included that could really help you.
