Bipolar Vicissitudes: Why Me?

Mental Health Humor’s Daily Doodle by Chato Stewart

Vicissitude (vi·cis·si·tude): a change of circumstances or fortune, typically one that is unwelcome or unpleasant.

Reading/listening to a new book via my Audiobook App. titled “How to Talk to Anyone.”

(Do You find that some people are more unpleasant or difficult to speak with than others?)

My daughter heard some of my audio book and sarcastically asked, “what are you listening to?”

When hearing the title she said, “that’s stupid, if you want to talk to anyone, just talk to them!”

It sounds like a good title for a book.  🙂
