I was relying on my landlord letting me have a pet. I knew having a pet would motivate me to get up. To go out to buy supplies for them. To have something which *needs* *me* to nurture and care and socialize with them. To have a responsibility to make me think twice before doing something. But they said no. I can't find anywhere else to live that allows pets that I can afford. I don't know what to do. I can't really get out of my contract. When I had pets they were my life, they cheered me up when I was down. I live alone now. I feel like I'm going to be lonely until I can get a job (never?) and afford somewhere that will allow me to have a pet. I've been desperately trying to see people every day so the loneliness doesn't get to me. Everyone seems tired of me because I talk to them every single day and ask if they want to meet up. I can't help feel that I am going to start going downhill again because I have no reasons left to bother getting better. I have no partner anymore. I have no pets. I live alone now. I have no one for company but myself. I can care for others but not for myself.
Hey everyone, About 6 months ago, I was diagnosed with Bipolar II DIsorder and never really considered that the two were significantly related. A week or so ago someone asked if two people shared the same spirit animal would that reveal anything about their mental or physical health. So, here I am. Two years ago, I found my black panther whose name is Kale. He's a very old, grumpy cat with a lot of wistful knowledge about things. I found him in a forest, he came to me and told me I couldn't touch him and it took months for him to allow me to touch him. The forest is on a cliff and there's a ridge that overlooks an ocean. Occasionally I won't be able to contact him, because he is in the "scary" part of the forest and he won't allow me in there. While he's in there I don't feel any different, just a bit lonely. He never answers when I ask what is in there or why he was in there. Those are probably the most significant things I can think of, but maybe the correlation is in the details. Feel free to share your animal, where you found them, their personality, behavior, etc.. Also, do any of your medications affect communication?
