Share Your World – September 18th, 2017


Share Your World – September 18th, 2017

Complete this sentence: I want to learn more about … God’s plan for me. I need to strengthen my belief system again as I have let God fade in my life.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? Air conditioning if hot and a bed, no mattresses or sleeping bags.

What is your greatest extravagance? Food now that I have to lower my carbs. Low carb is expensive compared to junk food from the dollar menu.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Seeing my grandson who is a US Marine home on a brief leave before leaving for Japan for 2 years.

Whine/wine – my Sunday


On Sunday we went to the Baptism of my newest great nephew.

I took communion and was shocked they actually used wine. I was used to grape juice at some churches.

My whine is that my shirt wouldn’t stay down. It kept creeping up and exposing my bra. I had to spend the whole time wondering where my shirt was or someone was telling me to pull it down.

What a way to celebrate a Baptism.

Have to find my lost inspiration! Bipolar is just part of me, not all of me!


I blame so much on the bipolar disorder, but it is only part of it. I have lost most of my inspiration in life. Granted I never had much to begin with, but my writing is suffering, my blog is suffering. My family life is suffering and I just started to make amends with my children. I don’t want to die old and alone with no family.

I started the amends process last night. Lots of crying among us, but a start has been made and I have to admit my son is probably right when he says I am looking for attention. That I don’t feel real without it. I need validation.

Others suffer from things worse than me and go on with life. I use my mental and physical health as excuses. I am intuitive and I know things and could have made a great counselor if I had felt the need and desire.

I want to make a difference in people’s lives as well as my own. I have to start with me for the most part.

I need to bring God back into my life. I have even pushed him into the background. Blaming him for my misery. Life isn’t easy and getting back on track will take some work, but TESSA CAN DO IT!

Bipolar and ex-husbands


Still raising hell!


My phone order should be fixed now.

I wrote another letter to my ex-husband asking for forgiveness for the last letter and to tell him that I finally have come to peace with what happened when we were teenagers and hope he can forgive me.

I read it twice and I think it is ok and shouldn’t cause problems like last time. Hopefully it isn’t the weaning off of the psychiatric medicine that caused me to write another letter. I hope he responds to me and not the children.

I can’t sleep. Too riled up.
