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.

ive been there (people asking me if i was on drugs) i talk to anybody when im maniac i hope you feel better red

Hell I feel fine! Just annoyed that they won't just put up with me. But really, I guess it's silly for anyone to be expected to not wonder when I talked for nearly half an hour about how cool it would be to have a narcoleptic meercat, laughing till I was crying. X-D it's still funny to me.

I just wish my eyes didn't like burning!

i can just imagine the meerkat the works lookout for the group...looking looking lookingzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz handbag.

i've had people ask me if i was on drugs too, or if i got drunk on my break.
i don't know if i've ever truly been manic in the technical sense, but i definately know what you are talking about.

i spent a week at work once making fake newspaper articles about a dolphin that was mad at noam chomsky. and for weeks i would only ride the elevator while doing a handstand against the wall, never rightside up. fortunately, (or unfortunately...?) i worked with one good friend who thought i was funny.

though i do remember times when i would constantly go up to her while she was stocking shelves and push her... (not to hurt her.. just, you know...ever feel super playfully aggressive?) and times where i would interrupt her with pointless babble... i mean, it really was babble, i would string together nonsense syllables and say them really quickly under my breath so she would go "huh?...huh?...WHAT?" well.. if you can imagine even though she's my friend it got to the point of her saying "what is wrong with you?" or grabbing me by the shoulders and saying "calm.... down..." or just sighing and walking away.

you can talk to me about narcoleptic meerkats.

have you told your doc this? maybe you can get something to help bring you down/sleep a bit more?

how did you feel when your co-worker asked if yo were on coke? ive had a similar experience and, although i wasnt offended at the time, when i thought back on it later i was.

i hope you're ok red.

I wish I could do a handstand but my butt is a whopper so when I hit the wall I bounce back off and fall down. X-D

I'm ok I guess. I'm really tired now but I still can't sleep. I thought I might a couple hours ago so I laid down and...just laid there. It's getting on my nerves. I need a lot of sleep and without it I get really irritable and the depression and all that seems to get worse. Basically my life is shit and I mean that from the bottom of my wasted heart.

still no sleep? i'm sorry red! i wonder if you can post something somewhere about sleep, or i think there may have been some threads in the past...i honestly don't know much about the best ways to deal with it.


you don't have a wasted heart, by the way, you have a big bouncy heart like a ...big...beating... puppy.

i don't know if that will have the effect i was hoping for

I loves yous guys!!! I'm so happy you think my heart is like a puppy! That makes me feel squishy!

Last night I got 4hrs of off and on sleep, I think it helped a bit, not as much as a full night but yeah.

I feel like I'm coming down with something...does anyone else experience that when they don't get enough sleep?

My brain feels foggy and sometimes I have the shakes or feel like I'm on something like speed.

My joints hurt soooo bad! I really don't understand why, maybe sleep and rest have to do with that sort of thing?

I've taken the time to lay down in bed to rest my body even if I can't rest my mind much.

How long should a person deal with this before it's REALLY unhealthy and I should see a doctor and deal with the cost of it?

once i tried to sleep in the grip of mania and it felt like every cell in my body was on fire that was not healthy, the human body cant really take being in overdrive that long so yea i do feel wasted after something like that but hey at least we dont need coke right

Yeah, it's a free high!

I still feel completely devoid of rest tho. Normally my "mania"(if that's what it's called in my case) only lasts a day...this has been 4 and it's starting to wear me down. I'm getting increasingly afraid of the crash. It's pretty bad after a day, I can only imagine 4.

i think a lot of those little aches / feeling like you are getting a cold DO come along with not sleeping. it does give me those little joint aches and the shakes after awhile.

i think it would be good for you to get more sleep. i'm afraid to give you medical advice, but have you taken over the counter sleep medicine before? was what you took last time over the counter or prescription stuff?

i would suggest sleepytime tea and all that junk too, but to be honest i don't know that it helps. sometimes with that i remain awake but a little "doped".

*with-a-grandmother-look-in-the-eye* : What would you like to hear? I am reluctant to start taking medication for myself because of these side effects and I`ve heard it has not a good development if you stop/start taking them in a short time. So I am a bit worried about you, I hope you do fine and were able make a wonderful stand up comedy.
(I think there are others in here being able to give you more experienced advice)
