Journey Return-The Path that Led Me Back to my Life That Was Lost
I have been a Bipolar survivor for 22 years. In that I have experienced the deep lows of depression and the extreme highs of mania. One thing that stands out significantly is that in the yr 2013 following my hospitalization for suicidal ideation, less than a year later, I decided to make some changes in my life, never realizing it would come this far.
I started eating healthy. Blending healthy protein shakes along with supplements and started working out with an intense running program. As I started these implementations, mainly during my running, listening to my iPod, I would experience tears of joy running down my face. I had tingling Sensations throughout my head and upper body. I felt a surge of energy and complete inner calmness & peace that I can hardly describe. I felt a strong connection to God more than I ever felt before. These Sensations were totally distinct from my mania symptoms from times past. I feel that it was uniquely special. No, I didn't have supernatural powers, but felt this was my body overcoming a crisis and therefore becoming a healing crises for me. I will forever be thankful for this extreme experience and will forever be grateful -- a blessing that I will cherish.
