BpHope Post #3

Ready. Set. Sail!

3rd times the charm as they say!

Well gang, it’s time for another edition of Jess’s bpHope rants. Hope ya’ll are excited for another round! Let’s do-si-do and all that other horse manure and put our cowboy hats on and stuff….I don’t know. It’s early! And I’m in my car in the rain waiting for the bank to open. Because my husband told me they opened at 8am when it was clearly 9am (Sweetheart I’m really not happy!). God!

Well let’s see. What else is new? Hmmm…not much. Same. I haven’t done anything stupid really. I have been chatting online with this guy (STRICTLY PLATONIC!!!! NO!!! DON’T GET ANY IDEAS!!!) because I couldn’t sleep last night. Like at all. I blame mania. And yeah I’m really manic. But I’m behaving!! I haven’t talked to the Snake at all. So that’s an improvement. I just like attention from men…so sue me!

Anyways…here is the link:

Have a scrumptious day!

Enjoy all the tasty glory and tell me what you think in the comments.

  1. OMG Jess is about to have an affair. Yes she’s gorgeous to look and very witty and intelligent and open and honest, but she’s obviously at the sexting πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Jess pls I think we should tell everyone it’s me. I am the mystery man Hahahaha.
    You write so well, I just want to poke a little fun at you today! I am a little concerned about you being manic though. Can you get a med appt tomorrow?

    1. Aidan you’re so bad. Maybe we should tell them about our passionate affair. You drive me absolutely crazy and I’ve been missing your touch for days. Please don’t leave me without one more kiss….

      …yeah I’m being good. And I need to learn to laugh more. I’m not sure I can get an appointment in right now but I’ll see what I can do.

  2. I just got my issue of BP in the mail and girl, your articles need to be in THERE too! And you’d get paid! The submission guidelines are on the BP website; I’m not sure where. For all I know, you are well aware of their policies, —I’m going to encourage you to do this because the magazine is BORING BORING with the same-old,same-old writers (mostly!) and it needs YOU to freshen things up with your special zing!

    ‘Zat said, I’m going to sound like Mama Hen, but plase make sure you have a game plan set in place to handle the mania, please please please, as your platonic friend suggested! I’m spacing on where you’re at with meds and doctor appointments, but be proactive with the mania because you don’t want to make the mistake I did – you don’t want to get too manic and then bottom out.

    LOVE YOU and I’m off to the link at bp to comment!
    XOOXOXOXOX

  3. I don’t believe that I am bipolar however I have experienced many of the same feelings as you have over the past year. My job has become very overwhelming due to people retiring and replacements being out with health issues, and everything falling on my shoulder. I have cried many mornings in the shower getting ready for work, I cry as I walk out the door, I cry in my car on my way in, I cry at my desk. I feel as if I can’t handle it any longer, everything overwhelms me, it has taken over my life. I’m trapped and have no choice but to do figure out a way to manage it…it’s awful, so I can only imagine what a struggle it must be for you on a daily basis too. I commend you for your spirit and attitude and wish you continued success with your journey.

    1. Awwww…thank you Deb. You’re sweet. I’m so sorry things haven’t been going well for you at your work. I know exactly how you feel. I got that so often. I’d leave my desk to go to the restroom and cry. It’s tough and overwhelming. Maybe if you can find something after work or on the weekends to preocuppy yourself. I found that helped me a lot when I went hiking on weekends. I’ll hope you find a way to get peace because I feel for you. Take care of yourself Deb.

      1. Thank you Jess. Yes I do go to the restroom often and cry…I’ll go in there and say Thank you God, Thank you God, I remember watching Oprah and her saying the Maya Angelou would tell her to thank God even in difficult times, so I do! I started my blog to help me find my peace, and writing poems and it has helped. I actually started a Daily Grateful Post to help me stay positive and that too has helped.
        You’re very kind and I appreciate your encouragement and your hopes for me. I wish you find your way too!
        You take care as well!! πŸ™‚
