    i might be having a manic episode.

    I feel super confident and pumped and happy.

    Good thing i'm seeing my shrink in two weeks. i'll tell him.

    IDK.

    Is it bad that I kinda wanna stay a bit bipolar if only for the manic episodes?

    Probably bad. With my relative who is bipolar, his manic times are usually when he absolutely wrecks his finances with over zealous spending, going out, etc.

    Chanus,

    A) Don't betray my trust in this matter

    B) answer the following true/false questions

    - The Holocaust happened
    - The Armenian Genocide happened
    - The moon landings happened
    - Terrorism is brown peoples fault
    - The square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides

    probably

    -yes
    -yes
    -yes
    -sometimes, technically, at a prima facie level
    -i think that's right

    Allegedly a voice of reason.

    i mean...

    I'm listening to some of the tracks i made last year and i'm thinking "Man, i'm not bad at all".
    I'm looking at game design docs i started last year and I think "Wow, this is great stuff".
    Even my pixel art looks good to me right now.

    i wanna keep that.

    But at the same time, i'm starting to feel myself falling now.

    and shit, now i get why i need to be more stable with my mood.

    The system will reward you with cosmetics - no power gains.
    Some player icons and sprays will only be available through seasons.
    A new golden gun system is being added to further customize characters. High skill players will get them faster.

    I have now worked at my job for exactly one government-issue ballpoint pen

    I don't think I've ever used up a pen from start to finish before; they've always got lost or I pick one up that's already half dead

    I used to buy my own pens and guard them jealously

    My last employer bought shit pens

    I am now watching the history of Top of the Pops in 1982. I am adrift in a sea of glorious, sickly sweet nostalgia, the days when Craig Fairbrass was a backing dancer on the show and Martin Fry wore his gold lame suit.

    Not a bipolar myself, but Girl is

    And yeah, the highs are enticing and a little intoxicating

    Unfortunately, you have no control over the height of the highs or the depths of the lows and usually very little warning of when you're gonna go from one to the other

    Mood stabilization is the light

    As an aside

    I cried for a little earlier today because I felt relaxed for the first time in 8 years (without abusing alcohol), in no small part thanks to my meds

    Fuckin' relaxed, you guys

    It was so good

    Psychiatrist husband claims that's pretty normal. People feel great during hypomanic episodes and sometimes enjoy the feeling of manic episodes and don't want to give it up--however they can be incredibly harmful, so it's best they are given up.

    I am vaguely aware that there is a stationery cupboard somewhere

    Maybe it has pens

    Yeah, i know.

    But here's my problem.

    My baseline mood is, i feel, lower than the "average" mood.

    so without the highs, i'm afraid I will lose out, y'know.

    Anyway, i'm seeing my psychiatrist in two weeks, i'll tell him and hopefully get a prescription for delicious mood-altering drugs.

    That's the bipolar paradox. Part of mania is feeling like mania is a good thing. It isn't though.
