It is an underappreciated phenomenon that loss of insight may occur b4 you conclude u r the president. This fact is why I am constantly saying mania is a psychiatric emergency. I almost flew to Beijing 6 mos ago to meet a 29 yr-old I met online. Smart and beautiful. But I am 56 and have zero interest in romance. I had plenty as a youngster. Totally hypo and no idea.
I live alone and rely heavily on you guys to tell me when u see something. It helps enormously.

Hang in there.

Hugs and love.

I agree wholeheartedly with this. I got distracted, but I did do some research about pet loss groups this morning. I found a few things.

There is a facebook group out of Manitoba dealing with Pet loss: Pet Loss Support Group - Home | Facebook

Another resource is a Pet Loss support hotline run out of Tufts: Pet Loss Support Hotline: Support Group Links – Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University

Psychology Today recommends 4 steps immediately after pet loss: Four Steps to Take After Experiencing Pet Loss | Psychology Today

Chat rooms are found here:
Resources - Pet Loss at Home

There are a lot of support groups out there. @BeyondtheRainbow, can we connect you to some help? I hate to think of how much pain you feel in your heart. I remember when I lost my furry partner Chonch. It was so hard. I want you to try these resources, if you can?

Keep reaching out to us, too!

I have been feeling a little weird today... you know, like scatterbrained. I guess I am just thinking of too many things at once for some dumb reason. I am also overwhelmed by the seemingly infinite amount of activities I can, want, should, could, would do. (Translation: I'm basically an indecisive idiot.)

My mood is fine; I am not experiencing a mood swing. I am just indecisive and frustrating the hell out of myself because I want to equally as much do everything I have been thinking of. I need to learn how to be more decisive instead of just laying on the floor and wasting time thinking about stuff I could do. Yet here I am...

Thanks, whatever, for reaching out. I am using my phone now rather than puter and am a super slow phone typist. I get impatient w myself. Sorry.

However, I am still in a now 3 month-long depression and have been both manic and psychotic over the past week or so. It is certainly possible that those things are related to language use. For example, my French is significantly better when hypo than when depressed. It does seem clear from fmri work that bipolar illness can have a big impact on language processing, so...

Thank you.

Unhappy Re: Bipolar check-in #48

I wish my pdoc let me email her.
I need to be able to tell her whats been going on.
I did not get the haldol injection on the 20th like

I was supposed. So I have been taking 10mg of

haldol twice a day which is a lot.
Think I will go back to 5 mg a day 2x a day,

what she prescribed. I have been so groggy

these last few days. I think I will cut in half the klonipin
(i think that .5mg would do the trick)I really like being able

to sleep but this sedated feeling in the mornings is awful.

I just told my parents I have SzA. So scared.

So the conversation went surprisingly well. I was asked if I had hallucinations. I told them the most benign one. I told them my fears of telling them. They told me lots of people with MI raise families plus I have H to help. I reminded them H has BP. They said it seems really controlled on meds. They looked up what it was before they called. I'm not thrilled I told them. I also informed them I have been hospitalized 2x. They said to call them and tell them if I need anything. My dad talked about controlling it with diet.
