Your post on the melding of the bi-polars was interesting. Where are the modern Handel's? Is there anyone out there today writing some extraordinary musical piece, in like, 7 days without sleep, etc? Yet, there are more diagnosises. (I don't know how to pluralize diagnosis.) I was diagnosed with BPII by more than a few PDoc and am skeptical. I don't have much mania, don't spend much, have no interest in sex, whatsover, and I certainly ain't writing anything that would be mistaken for the Messiah.

As for the chicken and the egg, any mania I have had, such as fast talking, racing thoughts, grand plans and dreams (that NEVER happen), well, these seem to come after starting or going off meds.

It seems to me that once you've entered a psychiatrist's office and that pad gets picked up and scralled on, you've entered another world of no return. I think of this every time I hear the song by the Eagles, "Hotel California". " . . you can check out any time you'd like, but you can never leave." I sure hope I'm wrong.

How do you find the discipline to write your books? I cannot concentrate for long periods of time and I know this is common symptom of depressiion. Do you think you just overcome it by sheer talent, intellectually?

I'm looking forward to reading your book. Thank you for taking the time to be here as a guest.
