Leaf on the Wind: Crisis
In case its not obvious, throwing me into crisis takes very little. I'm a leaf on the wind! And if the breeze blows northerly I might become distraught. No, seriously, Guys, my Therapist has assured me that "Crisis Counselors" are on call for me 24/7. And today I made use of them. Listen, Folks, when you are bipolar AND a historian, you search for "evidence" to confirm your worst fears. And as a long time Crisis Researcher, allow me to assure you if you seek ye shall find. Really, go try. Within a month or so, you'll have your own weblog. But as a very nice woman named Maureen reminded me today: Nothing has changed. Nothing is forever. There is no reason to mourn. The only pertinent question I should be asking myself is why I chose to celebrate finishing a chapter of my dissertation with a meltdown. We just don't know.
