Hi, corey-jon -
I'm glad you posted back, too, I thought we ran you off!!!
My name is Shannon (shannon1, we have another Shannon2), both of us are nurses and BP, what are the odds????
Anyhoo, I'm BP 1 rapid cycler with psychosis also (tho I haven't had any psychotic episodes in a year and a half, phew)! Im pretty much here all the time, except when life comes around and I have to do stupid things like responsibilities, lol.
I'm sorry you have such a hard time with people, I am that way, too, but not to the extent that you have it. I hate going in public, I can't stand to be next to anybody in line, or at the movies (aisle seat a must!). I have to move way far away from someone walking toward me, becuase I can't stand my personal space invaded by a stranger. But I have found that pretty much all of us are like that. Before I was medicated I was the life of the party all the time, but could be that way for a limited time only, and of course while drunk or other..... Back by popular demand only, lol! Paranoia does run rampant with BPs, as does a lot of other weird stuff. Oh, well, at least we're unique!
Besides drag racing, what else do you do for fun? Are you artistic in any way? I paint, draw, used to play piano before I sold it for a horse that I coudln't afford to keep but did anyway via cash advances on the credit card lol. I used to show until about 5 years ago.
When did you get diagnosed BP? Did you have symptoms as a child?
Well, I hope you get the idea now that we're not "NOT friendly", lol. Welcome to HW!
Variety is the spice of life, BP is the key
