Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I just was suspended from work again. There is a great deal I'm not telling, but there is an issue with a supervisor, and as of now my fate rests in her hands. I finally went over her head with my concerns that she can't fairly judge and that each previous incident has had a negative spin put on it. I take some responsibility for my actions, but at the same time they've dramatized. And the current issue is so totally unfair that I'm speechless. Especially because her boss told me Friday "it just happens". And now "it just happens" may mean fired.
Further I'm getting a new roof and it's too loud to be at my house so I'm at my mother's with nothing to do.
Over the years I have noticed that when I have the least hope a rainbow appears. Rainbows are a wonderful combination of beauty, hope, happiness and rain, the product of ugly grey clouds that hide the beauty of the sky. The beauty that is a rainbow can only come with the presence of both rain and sun. Such is life with bipolar disorder. There are good times, there are tough times, and there are rainbows to remind us that beauty will return, sometimes fleetingly and sometimes for a long time. This blog is my story of sadness and hope. Please scroll down to "Who I Am" under Pages to read more about me and the people who populate this blog.
