All these examples are why I avoid bipolar people.

WOW!I have been living with Ms. Jamison's feelings for 55 years and with everything I have read and researched (alot!) this has to be the only thing that has jumped out and sucked itself into my soul! My complete empathy and magnanamous gratitude are laid on the plate!!! Ah, but if it didn't have to be so... Jeanie Ells

I know the feeling(s). I'm just thankful for lithium and fluoxetine. Say what you like about psychopharmacology, but I've been fine for over 10 years now.
