I have noticed that I have many ups and downs with my bipolar disorder. The main thing I would like to change is that I constantly waste money that is given to me by my uncle and by SSI on food that I end up throwing away. This has been a big problem for me and there have been weeks that I spend on average about 250 at grocery stores and a lot of it goes straight into the dumpster. Yesterday there was a person who came to the dumpster and I felt really sad and I said to him that he could go to a church or a foodbank for food. The thought of a person going to a dumpster to collect food sounds so disgusting to me.
I need to move forward and I have been feeling down and I notice that when I feel down, I am more susceptible to throw out food. I want to be optimistic and focus on keeping what I have and also avoid going to grocery stores. I don’t think I can avoid yummy.com because sometimes I need cigarettes, tea, water, bread, soda, and it’s much cheaper than taking a cab to Wallgreens and a then to a deli because I would need to pay cab fare, then a deli charges a lot more than a grocery store, and the selection is limited at stores like Walgreens and Rite Aid.
