I’m a little bit manic. How are you? Fine, you say. Good. I’m glad to hear it. I’m going to win the lottery today. Yes, I am. I’ll start by buying a house with enormous closets to fill with beautiful clothes. I think I’ll eat another cinnamon roll. Ooo! I’ll go to the French bakery in town and buy their fresh croissants. I’ll eat those smeared with real butter and the most expensive strawberry jam I can find in town. It’s time to drive to the top of a mountain and do a dance. I’ll bring down the rain. Yes, I’ll do a rain dance, and then I’ll take off my clothes and dance in the rain. I’ll race down the mountain burning up my brakes and buy a new Audi when I get to the bottom. Purple. I’ll paint the walls purple with a green stripe about 3 or 4 feet up from the floor, and if paint drips on the carpet, well, never mind, it’s just a rental and the clouds in the sky are telling me stories about Native Americans of long ago and their secrets are whispering in my ears just below the point of hearing, while I pace around my little house and watch the trees outside swaying with the wind, and my curtains blow with the wind, and the mailman will be here soon with my invitation to the White House dinner all because of my birthday; then there’s ice cream to eat, and pots of boiling water to prepare for the spaghetti dinner that I’ve forgotten to invite anyone to and the table will be set just right, move the pumpkin now, but be careful, we’ll carve it into a jack-o-lantern soon and set it out to frighten away the ghouls and ghosts. Spell check is the best invention ever. There.
That’s my manic mind. That’s today.
It’s time for a pill and sleep and then a call to the psychiatrist and then a therapy session with the psychologist.
It’s also time for a good cry. If only I could. I wish I could.

By the way, can we keep the croissants with butter and jam as you emerge from this? Pretty please?
Man cannot live by bread alone. Thank the Universe that croissants with all their buttery goodness are not just bread.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

A wonderful post,otherwise. am a B P too,but mania is checked by the mood stabilisers.I never go for un- ending spree on consomer goods.May be the thought of no national health scheme in ndia is a stern no.no.One thing which may help you during mania or euphoria would be to recite OOOHM or whatever you feel like.BEST OF LUCK & MEDS.
Thank you. I do a kind of meditation, and I will try reciting OHM. Bipolar disorder is unfortunate, but it is good we live in an age when medicine is available. Best of luck to you, too.
