  1. whatever the weather

    @jt07 Iceland. It was 54F when I woke up this morning.
  2. What are you listening to right now?

    Agnes has the hiccups.
  3. Memes that make you go hmm 🤔

    They are the enemies of Transformers.
  4. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    I was being silly. Don’t worry about it. Every time I see my dentist, she dislocates my jaw again. My current round of jaw problems started ~6 weeks ago, when I went in for that annual cleaning I get every four years or so. I have really good teeth, so there’s just not that much incentive to go when I know they’re doing fine on their own and she’s going to take my face apart.

  6. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    TMJ gone wild! This morning I failed at eating a pulled-apart scone I’d soaked in coffee. Baby food is more robust. I can open my mouth about an inch. Dinner? Soup. Tomato. No lumps. Couldn’t eat a grilled cheese sandwich. If this turns into the Physical Incapacity Diet Im’ma be hella pissed.

    When I was in New York this summer I found myself thinking that what Central Park really needs is some cows.

    I really need to brush my teeth.
  9. I haven’t got anything useful to say on the subject of parenting, but I want, as an autistic person, to say that what blahblah said really resonates for me: when I’m exhausted, overstimulated, and haven’t had enough time alone, everything about everything gets exponentially worse, including my depression. And I can’t reset until I’ve had a chance to unwind, by myself, quietly, for as long as it takes. I can’t imagine how I would keep it together if I were responsible for two such small children. The autistic and those with ADD or ADHD are cousins. Our nervous systems are over-amped. I hope it gets easier for you.
  10. The damn link is missing, but you see where this is going: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10891045?dopt=Abstract It’s not a guaranteed effect, but it can happen. I learned this years ago. Anything that elevates your mood too fast probably has the risk if you’re bipolar. Here’s some other info I found about vitamins: https://psychcentral.com/lib/vitamins-for-bipolar-disorder/ If you’re feeling zippy at all you should go back on the Seroquel - I just focused on that part of your original post. I mean, you should go back on it one way or another until you talk to you doctor, Miss Thing.
  11. I don’t know about the others, but be careful of the fish oil. That is known to be able to provoke mania in bipolar patients.
  12. Geodon is supposed to be a weight-neutral AAP, for instance, but I blew up like a tick when I took it.
