  1. Relapse isn't my only concern in life.  I watched others live normal lives as I waved goodbye to mine because a lot of the things people do in normal life isn't possible with these meds.  If you want to have children for instance you can forget that idea on these meds.  I believed what they made me into with the meds must be who I really am for too long in my life.  They were liars and charlatans that just wanted to keep me doped up on meds forever so I could be an endless cash cow for them.  Never again!

    Just breathe. Sit back and see how much nicer it looks and tell yourself, good job you! This is all going to pass. Just stick with us. We'll get through it. Remember we're the crazy ones and introverts. This is our moment to shine and help out the normally sane people. Seriously. All joking aside. They're all getting crazier. In another month my gal is going to be batshit crazy at this rate. I'm working on keeping her moving forward. Go to the store and visit that person you like. Make sure they're ok. Let them know you're just checking in on them. That's all. You don't have to do miracles, just do a little. I've got neighbors who now want to talk everyday. They have no clue what to do with themselves. I give them some ideas, chat with them a bit, and go back to what I was doing.

    I wouldn't call myself just an introvert.  My bipolar disorder basically makes it so there is an introvert and an extrovert in one brain and you never know which one you will be tomorrow.  I will be going to the store tomorrow and hopefully that person is there.  I've lost hope for the most part.  I had a wonderful birthday a month ago and have barely heard from any of my family since.  They had the party to relieve themselves of guilt of being basically absent the rest of the year.

  3. Yeah I'm losing it for sure.  There's a tremendous amount of pressure on me right now.  I have to at least appear to be keeping it together the entire time through this.  One really bad day and the rest of my life is over.  I can't drink or do drugs or even put on weight during this time.  I have to maintain the complete act the world now sees as my normal no matter what.

    It's like a particularly crappy version of Groundhog Day, isn't it. Without the humor.


    It will be Groundhog Day until I can't do it anymore and then it will be the Salvation Army retirement I talked about before I'm sure.  What a life!  It's time to drive off the cliff like he did in the movie.
