Well i finally had a MAJOR mania attack. Wow i forgot how that felt being that out of control. I had all the major issues, overloaded sexual issues, spending issues, couldn't slow down and was up all night. The complete combo meal of crazy. LOL LOL LOL

Why am i in such a good mood about it? Because i was able to recognize what was happening and i took extra medication to help get me thru it. No money was spent, no cheating took place, just a weekend of crazy that kinda left me wondering how i ever lived like this day to day with out meds.

Now i am just going to monitor my moods and see what is happening. Being aware of the nature of this thing i am battling has, for the first time i believe, given me the upper hand in fighting this thing. Its still hard, but now knowing how it is to live with peace in my mind gave me a lot of strenght to get thru this, this time. What doesnt kill you only makes you stronger so i will celebrate with you all a small victory.

So so so happy for you, Bill. I'm sorry you had a manic episode, obviously, but it's so great to hear you talk of getting the upper hand. I hope you continue to feel okay. Have you talked to your doc?

No i havnt talked with my doc, i'm almost due to to reup my meds (we do it every 3 months). I feel a lot better aside from being tired from the energy i used for the mania. But aside from that all is good. Thanks for the encouragement.

Hi Happy Bill,

Glad that something good came of it this time.  You did well.  Keep up the good work and be sure to mention this to your doctor even if you're feeling a whole lot better by then.  He needs to know what happened and how you got through it.

If you feel any after effects, don't hesitate to request an ASAP appointment.

~Wishing you wellness~ blush
