Doenca_BIPOLAR_sI had one of those days. Wonderful and horrible kept swapping turns at the helm. When everything was going my way, I was up. When things stopped going my way, I was down. In fact, there were a few moments when I was downright livid with anger.

I expect it’s the same with most people. We generally make our way through life on an even keel. And then there are days when we go from bliss to abyss in moments. From feeling loved to feeling rebuffed in a few words. From being at peace to wanting to say, “Do you want a piece of this?”
