Hi Folks
I've been gone for so long, I guess I need to bio again.
Originally diagnosed with ADD in my late 30's. Had a major misfire due to medication and was then diagnosed with BP 2 with rapid cycles. Unusual for a male to have BP2, but then again, I have always been unusual.
Take lamicatal, remeron, ativan, lithium. Good mix. I am doing quite well. The only thing that is really bothering me right now is my shorts are kind of bunching up on me.
Been a long road with too many bumps. Spent alot of time at the psych floor. So much I was thinking they would name a wing after me.
Have much less stress now. Sold the ranch (at a supreme loss) but it was too much for me to handle, even with how small it was. Wife and I moved to town, now I work painting houses and yard work. Seems like a step down, but I really enjoy it. Wife has a good job and we just plug along.
I hope I find every one well.
Your pal
I want "I wish I had one more day to spend at the office" on my tombstone.

I used to be crazy, but now I have enough money to be called eccentric.

Hi...I'm new here so I wasn't around when you were, but glad you're back. Also glad to hear you're back and doing well. Don't worry about the "step down" thing. As long as you're doing what makes you happy and keeps you healthy that's all that should matter. Plus if it's enough to pay your bills, put food on the table, and let you live so be it.
