I wouldn't want to choose; I love both. Realistically I can look after a pet better than I could manage a child but if I could have anything in the world I'd have both.

What do you do to distract yourself when you are sad?

I don't mind being sad. It's frustration, rage or anxiety that i hate. Sadness is a relief.


If you have a pet, do you like it when they snore? I love when my little dog snores!

None of my parrots ever really snored, but I guess it's possible. Many parrots make a crunchy crunchy sound (as I call it) when they are just falling asleep. That's a lovely sound because it is one of contentment I used to tell my husband that we should have recorded it and added it to my sound machine.

Sometimes parrots make noises when they dream. That can be cute, but if it's a bad dream it can almost sound like crying. That has scared me in the past.

Q: Do you have any form of what is considered a figurative "security blanket"? What or who is it?

TV. ID. 3 hrs timer. No medication other than L-Tryptophan. OTC.
The main character is always silent. The others whisper.
Even the commercials seem to have a lower volume.
Besides, I've seen so many that they're mostly repeats to me.
1/2 peanut butter jar helps too.


Do you have a roll model.

From mid to late May of last year I had a severe manic episode with psychosis. My husband and I were on a vacation in Portugal. It started with hypomania and intermittent anxiety features, then progressed to full blown. It was at its worst on our way home in airports. Airports are highly triggering for me. I had a visual hallucination where the digital signs in London Heathrow were showing that time stopped and that I would never get to our gate. Then I thought a woman infected my pen with anthrax. I was panicking and washing my hands over and over and wanted to throw out my courier bag, but my husband wouldn't let me. We almost missed our plane back to the US and my husband was afraid I wouldn't be allowed on the plane, but luckily I was. On the plane, my husband was crying. Then when we reached the US, the customs was hell and I was ranting loudly with people staring at me. I refused to stand in line. I waited at the top of the line for hubby to reach me, ranting things about the stupidity of the people that came up with the customs procedures and telling the people in line that when they got to the top they'd have to give a stool sample. Yup! This was not my worst episode. I've had much lesser episodes since then, but nothing note-worthy.

Q: What type of bipolar episode was your worst?

depressions are always the worst for me

they are so intense

not sure intense covers it, or a word has actually been in existance to describe how it makes me feel.

question: do you like dessert with your meals?. if so what do you have usually
