Oh yes, leg shaking. Ive had that puppy for years and it has driven my wife and family crazy. When you weigh in at 225 and start shaking a leg others around you can really feel it. LOL LOL LOL
And laughter is really the best medicine. You will not get better overnight, but having the ability to laugh will help you bunches. Heck i laugh at myself all the time, it relaly relieves the stress better than any drug ever made.
If your hypomanias are controled they can be a source of great happiness and joy in your life. Mine are controlled now with the help of medication and having them really does improve my quality of life.
Just give it time. You didnt get out of control over night and your path back to health again wont happen overnight. But taking each day as its given and trying to just make a small step every day has worked well for me. And if you have a day when you lose a couple of steps, just remember, this is a marathon not a sprint. At the end of a month, a year, a decade you will have many more good days than bad.
