Lily, go for your dreams, that much is true. But look after your health or you will have nothing.

i agree. at times like this it's hard to think about being good and looking after yourself, but i am trying, because it really is just so important.
thanks katysara, really, thanks heaps.

If I may be presumptuous (I'm not BP, though to get hypomanic episodes) I would suggest to think of it this way: your dreams are what you would think about all the time. Even when you're majorly depressed and think "I can never do that", if it's always there, somewhere, then it's a dream. I would imagine a manic idea will take a massive hold for a while, but then slip away as you calm down.

That's conjecture. Feel free to correct me. But I know, no matter how low I get, my dreams are always there in one way or another, even if it's just me going "how stupid are you? You'll never be able to do that! Just give up now and save us all a load of bother..."

Would it be crazy to try and orchestrate a situation where Thom Yorke and his brother Andy get over their differences? I have set such a plan in action. If I fail, you can call me ill. If I succeed, I am going to feel like some kind of god.

Reading that back it does sound far-fetched, but all it takes is for two people to lay their feelings on the line and forgive each other's past.

Lily-Mae just told me about this thread, so I am reviving it so I know where to post next time I am manic.

I have actually done a few things recently that may have not been entirely sensible. I will post them here later and look forward to some input - especially in regards what harm might have come from my actions.

I have a very hard time seeing negatives when hypomanic/manic!

By the way, I am not on any medication. I am using my Buddhist approach to life to keep me grounded as much as possible. It has been especially useful for avoiding depression when tired after a manic episode.

Rather than permanently reviving this thread, how about making it sticky? I think it's a good sort of thread to have around, rather than loads of individual "here are my manic thoughts" threads. I have one vote from Lily Mae already - anyone want to second it?

well then m'darlin', just so long as you are aware of that fact.

just try to take it easy, we don't want you acquiring any injuries, and maybe let a friend who's going out with you to keep an eye out for you, as you're feeling a little loopty-doo.

I'm manic today and all my coworkers think I'm on drugs. I was asked if I'm on anything, I asked what she meant and she whispered "coke".

I've had...5hrs sleep total since I woke up friday morning. I'm wired, i'm talking to anyone that walks by me, and i feel like I can't move enough.

It's driving me nuts.
