Rewrote “Dizzy”

Here is the new version of this poem.

Whirlwind Thoughts!

By Teresa Smeigh April 2019


My mind is in a whirlwind,

Often leaving me chagrined.


Bipolar is one part of my problem.

My thoughts, I can’t suppress them.


Do this, please do not do that!

What am I, a dimwitted doormat?


I need some help regrouping.

I hate this negative thinking.


Positive thinking that’s the way,

Don’t let others lead you astray.


One day I am going to be free.

Barring any troubles, I can’t foresee.


It takes time and determination.

Planned, not just adaptation.



Advocate for mental health and invisible illnesses, also a devout Christian

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
