My phone rings.

I look at the caller ID. It’s someone I know from work. A friend. We sit together all the time, she tells me about her life and I make her laugh. She’s someone I’m usually comfortable around. We’ve been on nights out together, I’ve even stayed at her house. She’s someone I like spending time with.

I don’t pick up. I watch the phone ring, ring, ring, until it stops.

Hello

My name is Laura. I was once told that I have cyclothymia. This blog is mostly where I write about living as a person with extremes and instability of mood, and the history of a life that led to the development of those symptoms.

I complain a lot, I'm very repetitive, unreliable, and I tend to contradict myself.
