  1. whatever the weather

    I traveled to Florida today. When and where I woke up, it was 7F. Now it’s 74F, and that’s the projected low. If anyone can think of a compelling reason why I shouldn’t sleep naked under the sea grape tree, you’d better spit it out now.
  2. Hi, lolaz. Welcome back! I hope you find support here like you did last time. Congratulation on your baby. That’s a huge thing. I can see what a stressor it must be for you. I know it’s hard for anyone. Are you seeing a therapist right now?
  3. What are you listening to right now?

    I’m pretty sure my husband is loading the dishwasher. And/or the Tupperware has committed some egregious sin, for which he is making it pay.
  4. Hi, Gazelle, I’m sorry, but CB is a first-person site: We only deal with people talking about their own mental health issues, not those seeking advice for friends or loved ones. I recommend that you contact the Autism Society of America and query them about resources in your area. Best wishes, Gearhead (admin)
  5. Course of illness

    This is hard to answer. I was diagnosed as bipolar when I was 28, after more than a decade of what were obvious manic to depressed episodes, with periods of functionality in between. Then I spent several years over- and incorrectly medicated. Then I had a period of remission. Then I had some mixed episodes, and in 2016 I had a serious manic episode. I feel as if I have better tools (meds, insight, practice) to help me manage my disorder, but it’s nearly impossible for me to say if the illness itself has gotten better or worse.
  6. Take care of yourself, Sonic, and know we are always here for you. I’ll miss you.
  7. whatever the weather

    We are not on our fist snow. While it snowed last night, it was our third or fourth snow.
  8. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    No one. No one does that. I would be concerned about your mental health if you tried.
  9. I think you should take the supplement and skip the test.
  10. whatever the weather

    Two hundred seventy mile drive today, and it pissed down rain the whole time. I am officially out of sorts.
  11. I don’t get enough migraines to make it worth trying. I just wanted everyone here who might need it to know about it.
  12. Coldmassiveblue hasn’t been here since October of 2015. He deleted most of his content and left. I assume he isn’t coming back, and doesn’t want to be found.
  13. What Did You Accomplish Today?

    Any minute now I’m going to go get groceries.
  14. Chee, they’re wrong and you know it. You talked about this within the last couple of weeks. You present well. A lot of us do, and it’s to our disadvantage. And one decent day does not make what you’ve been going through ok.
