It’s been a while…

I tend to fixate on something, go hard in the paint, then trickle off until it renews my interest. WordPress has became one of these fixations.


Here I am, interest renewed.

Hopefully yours is too.

-Just a quick update-

While I have been gone, I moved to my moms RV because rent was going up at the lovely townhome I was staying at, and decided I did not like the RV lifestyle. I bought a home in November, though I have not been able to close on the home (crazy story).

The real purpose for this post however is to focus on fixation in bipolar disorder.

Fixation is described as an obsession, something you can’t get out of your mind. It may control your thoughts, actions, and words. In Bipolar it could show up as something new every time you turn around, which is the case for myself. This leads to unfinished business or inconsistency. You can be hyper focused on one thing during the week, and change the very next day.

Personally, I fixate and change my course about every week. It does not matter what the topic is, as soon as I get bored of something I will circle back to an unfinished obsession. This causes me to be inconsistent- so it is hard to complete my goals.

Medication has yet to change this and I am not sure if there is a way to change it.

Maybe acceptance and direction is key.

Identify the issue, accept that it is how our brain functions, and steer the obsession to a healthy lifestyle.
