Not sure what to do, I've always picked up another distraction, a new hobby, a new carrer, a nrw degree but it somehow now feels do futile to throw myself in a new direction only to crash and burn in a year or two.
Ughhh... this really makes me question my bipolar diagnosis. This is exactly me. I think my psych is starting to agree based on my lack of response to mood stabilizers. But youíve just described my life. AND the Wellbutrin which I was put on for depression has not helped that... but it sure has staved my typical forays into new hobbies and distractions and spontaneity (not to mention the creativity). Iíve had a shocking number of disparate jobs from molecular biologist to photographer to boat captain to Bladesmith and now Iím at an all time low working in a foundry.
