Writing With Bi-Polar Depression

Several days ago I put up a post where I mentioned dealing with a minor mental issue. Unfortunately, for many folks, dealing with bi-polar is not a minor issue. People without the disease go through life with their moods centered around a baseline and go above or below that baseline depending on good or bad circumstances in their life. Someone with bi-polar will have very pronounced mood swings way above or way below their baselines that have nothing to do with circumstances.
As a child growing up in the fifties, I had no idea what the problem was but knew it wasn't normal so I developed several ways of hiding my down times. I could go on and on about what I did to cope but still feel uncomfortable talking about them.
Anyway, some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted much of anything for quite awhile and haven't made much progress on my WIP. Just thought I would let you know why and that being on an up cycle you should hear more from me.
I envy those of you who can write everyday. All I can do is the best I can when I can.
Thanks for listening.
