One of the hardest things when I am experiencing any kind of episode is keeping the house clean. I must admit that even when I am in a normal mood I am not very clean, and I really need to get rid of about 50% of the stuff in my flat (unfortunately my partner objects to me getting rid of his stuff for some reason).
If you’re seriously ill I would advise letting go of most cleaning. It doesn’t matter. Don’t do it and don’t beat yourself up over it. Don’t give it a second thought.
Some of you are probably thinking that it is extremely important to clean your bathroom and vacuum and mop and so on. It’s not. I once didn’t clean my bathroom for 2 years between house inspections. Do you know what happened? Nothing. I didn’t get sick, the bathroom wasn’t damaged, it wasn’t even that…
