I’m typically manic this time of year. It just happens to fall that way. Then I get real shitty around the first of the year with ‘The Christmas Comedowns”. This year is different because my Lithium is finally at a therapeutic level. Well one tenth below therapeutic range, but enough to keep me on the straight and narrow. Looking forward to a less depressing January this year. Way less compulsive shopping to buy gifts for everyone I have ever met, a few dozen less cookies in my maw and not even one attempt at Christmas cards has left me feeling grounded and slightly less overweight. Merry Christmas in a totally normal, no caps or exclamation points kind of way.
