What Tools Are in Your Toolboxes? April 17, 2020

In case you are wondering, I am talking about figurative toolboxes for the most part, not literal toolboxes. Everybody should have multiple toolboxes for different reasons.

In my case, I have numerous toolboxes. I suffer Bipolar Depression I, mixed states, ultra ultra rapid cycling. In other words, I can cycle multiple times a day. Starting with this toolbox, it’s a three parter. One part is for Bipolar tools in general. The next part is for Depression, and the last part is for Mania. In this case, there are some physical tools – therapy, medicine, doctor visits. I have A. S. – Ankylosing Spondylitis (A. S.) and Me. I have a different toolbox for it. Some of the tools are similar, but many are not. 

A key point to consider is to put tools in it even if tool A does not work for now. Down the road, it may start working later. Likewise tool B may work great now, but stop working later. Later, it may start working again.

You may have figurative work toolboxes. You may figurative toolboxes for family and friends. You may figurative toolboxes for coping with various things. You probably have a shelter in place one. It’s one reason I share or re-blog so many blogs about ways others deal with shelter in place, blogging, working, and other stuff.

Some tools will fit in multiple toolboxes, including ones may not think about.

Online I curb my humor as online humor often falls flat. For example, LOL or a smiley face can be used to be funny or to show sarcasm.
