No, No, I appreciate hearing about other's experiences. It seems the only stuff I read during these times is about people going through similar things. I know you're going through alot right now as well and not that I'd wish it on anyone, I don't feel so alone. It's interesting how symptoms are so similar with mixed bipolars. I didn't know that about August, April. Those are my hardest months. Something about the light? You ought to come up to Oregon to live. Plenty of grey moist weather. I love it, except for August.

Been trying to think about your other question, mania and then depression. I think I get it the other way, feel draggy and blah, can't motivate, hate everything, sleep alot. Then I start feeling the physical symptoms, achey, fried, insomnia, tired and wired. Like the static energy gets dammed up and gets dark and agitated. By the time all that's over I usually feel like I've been given a reprieve, halleluia. Mania mixed states can really take it out of a person, so it's not surprising you'd get depressed afterward, but that doesn't seem to be my cycle. I loved Katia's term - warriors of the psyche, cause it is a battle. I'm very burnt out afterwards, and exploring all this adrenal burnout info, which makes alot of sense.

Know what you mean about coffee. Sometimes it's the only thing I get up for. Maybe when I'm over this spell and things don't affect me so sensitively I'll go back to my one cup cause it's sooooo goooood. Hugs to you too. This moving stuff is a good excuse to get a massage, treat yourself extra special.
