during my first manic episode, I decided to see if I could get on the show " who wants to be a millionaire?"

as it turns out, the question they asked on the phoneline was very easy- and I chose a date I'd like to be on the show

well, I never showed up to the filming, and on the night of the show they actually said, on tv (word for word)

" and someone else"

I was sitting on my bed shaking a little (trying to figure out if they were going to get a 10th player on the show), but they didn't

they litirally stuck with 9 players that night

A vivid memory: My boyfriend, we were high school seniors, running down the long school hall with me on his shoulders. We were both laughing hysterically. A teacher stopped us and said we were being "too tactile". I clearly remember wondering why the teacher was referring to peaches.

(Those were the days, my friend; I thought they'd never end.)

I want to share this (because it's one of the few times I actually felt appreciated)

this girl, josie, I met her one day at random, and we got talking about stuff

well, she collapsed while we were talking, and I later found out that the reason was that her drink had been spiked

and I stayed by her and helped her (like put her in to recovery position and stuff), she came round (thank god), and the first thing she did as soon as she came round and could breav, was thank me for saving her life.

my first thought was, well, usually people have nothing good to say about me, or don't appreciate my help, but she did, and she let me know- I felt wanted, even if for a couple of seconds.

she ended up continuing her journey, but I don't think she ever forgot my kindness

In middle school, I was bullied a lot, mainly by these 3 girls. One day my bag wasn't on the peg in the cloakroom and I was looking all over for it and when I went around the back into the toilet area, my bag was in the sink and the tap running. Maybe the bullies didn't realise the bag was waterproof so it was pretty pointless. I assumed it was the 3 girls, because they were the main ones at the time.

Then another time, I went into the cloakroom at breaktime and these 3 girls were hanging around near my bag with a very suspicious look on their faces, especially the "main" one (the one that seemed to be in a charge and the other 2 just followed). I knew they were up to something, it was obvious, and I wondered if they were going to put my bag in the sink again, maybe this time open it, or even worse put it in the toilet.

Then the bell rang and we all went to class. Then at lunchtime after lunch, I went to my bag to get my sweets and they were gone. It was so obvious it was the 3 girls, and that's obviously what they had done when they were standing around looking suspicious. I told the teacher and of course they denied it so I got told off for "accusing them". The teacher was standing between me and them, and when she turned around to tell me off the girls started laughing silently and making gestures. When the teacher turned around, they pretended to look innocent.

Oh how I hated those girls.

in my books, that is a win
I'm really not judging but how did the aftermath make you feel inside? You must have been hurting to do this.

Bullying of any kind hurts more than most people know.

I'm not proud of this, but at the time, it was my only choice. I was in a state hospital..a real hell hole. One very forbidding woman and I bonded . (I have no idea how or why) She started attacking the nurse (who was very cruel) and I just stood there. I didn't help.

(Help the nurse, I mean.)

yes I was hurting.

as for the aftermath, well, it turned out that storing stuff on the cloud was emotionally draining (uploading just 1 folder to the cloud would take me ages), and I ended up giving up on it.

it didn't hit me what I'd done until I was told... now I need to find another place to back up all my stuff

and yes. I felt like the worst person in the world. it must have taken ages to build up that collection on the cloud

I felt even worse when I knew I wasn't going to use it either

Once in the hospital I threw a trash can at my doctor, it was a small trash can and it didn't hit him, I actually didn't mean to hit him. He was a nice doctor. It's just that I was supposed to be released the next day and instead of telling someone that I wasn't ready and was still suicidal, I threw the trash can so that I would have to stay in the hospital.

I don't think I ever apologized to the doctor. He didn't deserve it. He was friendly and had a cute funny beard.
