My Life as Baskin-Robbins

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 20, 2014, 12:56 PM

This is my life—
the pros and cons,
the ups and downs,

definition, equivocation,
self-absorption, tedium


I stumbled on this article when Googling whether a new medication I was taking could make me hypomanic. Was I symptomatic last night? Or was I simply talking and having a good time?

If you have the inclination, it's worth a read. It’s about more than what it seems—it’s about how we, as humans, need to categorize and label things so we can comprehend and therefore deal with them. How we push round pegs into square holes whether or not they fit (although, sometimes, they do).

The article is on the long side, so don’t feel bad if you don’t want to plow through it. Of course.

I thought I was an individual. But I’m just the flavor of the month.

It was a beautiful piece; it echoed how I feel about my own kid. I read it to my husband, who also was touched. Thanks for sharing it. :heart:
