Bipolar [Nov. 14th, 2012|06:19 pm]
So something did happen to me, and I had a manic episode. Long, interesting but long, story short I have had an interesting past few days, but now in a more calm state of mind I can tell you. I have bipolar disorder and I'm now taking medication to help calm the imbalance.

It took quite a bit go that to happen. During my manic episode the cops were called, I was tasered, I went nuts. Thankfully they were all smart enough to get me the help I need and my family was still there for me. Now I have collected my thoughts and the schizophrenia that had taken hold at its worst time is quashed. I started to believe it was me against the world, nothing is farther from the truth. People are good and fearful, not evil and conniving.

Because I understand this I have hope, and that's what it takes to get past mental illness. Thank you all, and thanks goes to all who have shown me love and support over the years

Huh. Yeah, that doesn't sound like the sort of experience you want to repeat. Good to hear you got some medication for it. I felt a whole lot better after I got mine for RA!

(All this politics stuff probably didn't help. I'm glad it's over for . . . what, a year or so? Never mind the fiscal cliff, we've gotta take a trimming sometime.)

Social contact is good. Go find some local furs and hang out with them or something. I'm off to MFF, myself.

I'm hanging with family, unfortunately the local furry community fell apart because the leader moved away. On top of that I was put under anastetia for having my wisdom teeth pulled which could have effected brain chemistry, and on top of the election night, which I felt was the straw that broke everything. That's when the insomnia started.
