STACKABLE DOORS. Minecraft is now perfect. xD

Blessed are we Minecraft fans who have struggled through such a broken game. Today our cries are heard, Mojang's 1.8 snapshot for Minecraft has been released and fixes the most egregious of errors -- doors now stack. Yes, now we may carry multiple d....

A few weeks back, I spoke with my doctor about the possibility that I might have Bipolar disorder, or manic depression as it is sometimes referred to. This is a mental condition in which those affected experience periods (as short as a few days and as long as a few months) of negativity and depression and also periods of extreme happiness known as mania. I had approached my doctor about the potential issue after spotting patterns in my behaviour, while at college. There would be some weeks where I would be an astounding student and would produce multiple Distinction grade (highest grade in BTEC courses) assignments. I would be continuously focused on the work and my views of the future would be highly optimistic. But then there were other times when I was a nightmare. I would sleep during class and sometimes fail to attend at all, I would fall so far behind with the work that I would fail to meet deadlines. My views of the future during these times were very pessimistic. I would feel as though my future was unimportant, and that all that mattered to me was to get through life and be the bare minimum that I can be. Honestly, this is the view that I most often have.

After completing the first year of college, I decided that I could no longer keep up with things and so I dropped out with the intention of getting a job and finding my place in the world that way. Around this time is when I decided to speak to my doctor about my mental health, and get a second opinion on whether or not my behaviour was similar to that of someone with Bipolar disorder. After I explained my reasons for thinking I was Bipolar, he agreed with me that there was a strong possibility I could have the disorder. He made an appointment for me to see a professional and have a one-off chat about my mental health to see if I was at risk, or if further action needed to be taken.

So today was my appointment and I think it went great. Although I am now even less clear on what my mental condition is, it was invaluable to be able to have a one-to-one chat about all the things in my head and about the ways that I deal with stress and problematic situations. My method for that is simple; If it's causing me stress, then I'll throw it aside and find something else to think about. Granted, that isn't a long-term solution but the mental health specialist actually said it seemed to work for me so it may be a good idea. After the meeting, he explained that he didn't think I was completely Bipolar, though my mood swings are definitely apparent, and because I cope well with stress and am good at containing my emotions (besides the late night tears sometimes) he said I probably didn't need to worry about my mental health for the most part. He does want me to attend a few counselling sessions in future because he feels I would benefit from being able to better understand myself through speaking in one-to-one sessions.

So yeah, I'm kind of Bipolar but not Bipolar. I have the mood swings and such, but I deal with it well so apparently it's not an issue for the most part. For me, the depression is more of an annoyance, or a barrier, than an actual risk to my safety and the mania is pretty great (aside from spending money carelessly on things for other people because I feel like it) so I'm not at risk there either. Sometimes you'll talk to me and I'll be excited and outgoing and other times you'll try and talk to me and I'll push you away so I can be alone, but don't worry because my opinion of you never changes. Helping people get through their lives is the only thing that makes me feel like I truly have a purpose and if I can make a single person smile, or simply feel a little better, then it was worth me getting up that morning.

In about a month, I'll have been here for 5 years. I miss when this place was amazing :(
Used to feel like my life was going nowhere, and that's because it wasn't. Now it is going somewhere... and that's a scary prospect..
Next time you're looking at all the stereotypical people around you, think "What stereotype do they give me?"
The hardest thing to do is to talk about being yourself. It's so hard to explain things you feel, when you don't know why you feel them.
They say nothing lasts forever, and that includes things like hate, anger, and depression. You'll get through them.
