    Why Fight It?

    It has been ages since my last manic episode so that is probably why I didn't see myself going there a few days ago. I should have known as all the usual signs are there but I just didn't see it coming. Now that it's happening I don't actually care too much even though I know I...

    Sometimes, I stop walking a laugh randomly. Other people stare at me while I laugh about some stupid joke from a cartoon I saw five years ago. Other times, I take the wrong meds and hallucinate and vomit and feel like a physical piece of ****, but it doesn't really matter...

    Yep, I'm a Rapid Cycler Too.

    Fuuuuuuun, innit? Was so exuberantly hypo earlier that I couldn't stay still.  Had that brief, beautiful, ephemeral few moments of supreme clarity, during which I felt at one with the universe. And of course now I've stayed up all night.... eyes are all bugged out from...

    Mania is so much fun

    and so exhausting at the same time. The rush of feeling invincible, the sexual urges, the feeling of being the most important person in the world. I could ride the highs forever. Unfortunately the crash always comes and the higher I go, the harder I fall.

    Sorry Yo

    I threw a tree branch at my friend. I did it in jest. Yesterday I was filled with inappropriate joy. I was unable to feel sad or anything else even though I was at a memorial service. I feel kinda bad about it now. Oh well I'm still happy though and feel a bit crazy. If I'm manic...
