Confessions of a Slut: Mental Illness


Mental Illness




Mental Illness does not mean crazy.
Mental Illness does not mean psycho.
Mental Illness is just that, an illness.
Mental Illness does not define who I am.
But Mental Illness does effect every aspect of my life.

My sex drive can be over drive. Porn and masturbation taking up much of my day.
 Or leave me entirely,wanting nothing and finding no pleasure in it.
My sex drive follows the ebb of my moods.

These moods effect my work performance:
At times I can have bursts of productive energy that seem limitless. 
Other times I am so distracted by racing thoughts that I can't concentrate.
And yet other times I lack energy and drive to leave my bed let alone work.

I can feel worthless and wracked with guilt, contemplating leaving this life behind.
Thought of death and suicide occupying every thought.
I can feel unstoppable, on top of the world. So full of ideas and energy that I feel I might burst.
I can feel paranoid, out of control and slip into periods of psychosis.

I have experienced the extreme delusional highs of mania
and the suicidal lows of depression.
I have had the experience of mixed state, where symptoms of both are present.
These episodes can last weeks if not months.

I do not swing between two extreme poles constantly.
I have some periods of "normal" or baseline.
I cherish these times when I am not at mercy of an ill brain.

I can be difficult to be around.
Unpredictable.
Arrogant.
Risk taking.
In the throes of psychosis.
Manic.
Irritable.
Agitated.
Apathetic.
Melancholic.


I am not Bipolar.
I have Bipolar!

                                                      
*My recent lack of posts was due to battling the symptoms of Bipolar 1 Disorder, which rose its ugly head after years of being stable.  I plan on doing a post about sexual health, relationships and mental health in the near future.

Adam&Eve Big O Kit of Disappointment

Adam and Eve Big O Kit
I had been seeing the promotion circulating for some time now. One simply had to enter the code DOLL and they received 50% off a single item in their cart, free shipping and also received a free Big O kit. After doing a little digging-not that much mind you- I couldn't find out any details as to what this mystery Big O kit actually contained. I figured that since I was doing an order anyways what the hell it's free. So I clicked the little box's that said send me my free kit which is valued at $29.95 and my other free mystery gift valued at $9.95.

Pink Cherry Review

Better, more detailed and 100% accurate as to my experience with the company!
First off let me begin by stating that I live in the United States and that Pink Cherry is a Canadian based company. At first I was slightly hesitant to order from them, my main issue was shipping. I was afraid that it would take a long time to receive my package and/or that the free shipping offer was not valid on orders destined to the US. Well my fears were not justified. I have ordered from them a total of three times so far and each time I have received my order within a week. I also was able to receive free shipping on all orders for ordering over a certain amount. But more on all that later.

Review: Fun Factory Tiger

Fun Factory Tiger
*****

I am enamored with Fun Factory. Maybe it is because they are a German company (I have thing for Germans and Germany in general) Or maybe it is because of the quality of their products which never disappoint.
