I sat on the computer today, determined to write, or learn to write, read that a writer has to publish their work. Whether it is to friends, social media , blogs….
Bingo I say. So blog. I am not tech savy at all. I do what I can in research, I continue to read what is recommended…so I follow along. I found out the recommended bloggin website was here…with all of you 🙂
Then I realized that I have to pay for it. I click a few buttons here and there, find a place to stick my credit card in and presto, I have just spent money.
But then as I continue to click on this and that and likely got lost or misdirected to another page that says buy here. Well I thought I just did but then I thought “Well maybe they didn’t get it.”
I continue through setting up my profile with great difficulty. I write my introduction, I send my bloggers address to my finace and I asked him to take a look. He messaged me back and said it was private.
So now I am thinking I bought the wrong package for what I need. 😦
I check out my banking and yup, I just double charged myself .
And this is what happens when I am manic. Impulsive shopper. Worse now because of all the cool things like Amazon and Wish, ordering is at your fingertips. I do like going to stores too. Trying to do things too fast , being over excited and not being able to focus on one thing at a time, I rush through things, and obviously make mistakes. This isn’t the first time I have double paid for something.
This is my mania.
These are my stories.
Welcome to my blog. My Non de Plume is Christine W Forgues. I have been journal writing for years. I took a course in Creative writing and found I enjoy writing short stories and poetry. I write more when I am hypomanic or manic.
I went into Rehab for Alcohol Addictions and have been sober for fourteen years.
Shortly after I quit drinking I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2, I have since been diagnosed with Bipolar 1.
I enjoy talking about my story, for people to learn or relate. I try and have a healthy lifestyle and try to use my coping strategies. Life is just too boring without Bipolar, it is a blessing but yet sometimes a curse.
I am currently working on a book and dream of publishing one day.
I am so excited to have found Wordpress.
This is my new adventure.
