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 am not posting because there is nothing to say. My life is pretty much resting, should be resting, or leading up to resting. I'm just very tired, which is normal for this surgry. I don't do much so there's not much to say. Monday will be 4 weeks and I do feel better, just very tired. My pain is diminishing and I've made it over 24 hours without pain meds for the first time.
I really haven't done much for the past 3.5 weeks. I am stressed out about the psychiatrist because I have no idea what is happening in 2 days since I can't go see her (too far to be in a car).
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.
