Bipolar is euphemistic bullshit, manic depression is descriptive. Wink



Yeah, I like 'em both!

Jimi is the best. We played this in the hospital a few times, at first got dirty looks but by the end of the stay the staff loved us. Ha ha! Some of the other patients, not so much Confused

Good morning, manic depressive sir.
I, personally, quite dislike soda bread for it's sweetish taste. But well, everyone's tastes are different.

What was that bread you made for SmooshMonster that she liked so much?

Medication was effective for me as evidenced by the fact that my sorry ass is still here to write this, but it was the addition of testosterone at the age of 45 which effectively "cured" me (i.e. alleviated all of my symptoms, didn't just dampen them like some sorta palliative). My particularly nihilistic world view was formed in my late teens and early 20's when my testosterone was at its peak. I didn't find it the least bit dismal or depressing then. It felt liberating. For a few decades after that, I increasingly found my peculiar world view more and more dismal and depressing. Bringing my testosterone levels back to where they were during my formative years was sufficient for me. Feels liberating again, as it always should have. Big Grin
