Dancing queen and proud of it!

Lithium and Lamictal work well for me. The only other mood stabilizer is neurontin which doesn't seem to do much. I've been intrigued by Depakote because of it's rep as being very calming and mellow and good for anxious states. But the weight thing has kept me away. I've been on every one of the SSRI and SNRI's. They'd work for awhile but then the godawful mixed states black depressions would always break through. So up we'd go with the dosage with no relief. I was also getting twitchy, like little discharges were firing, like those jerks before you fall asleep. If you suspect yourself bipolar, be very cautious with ADs and do not take them alone.

About the dancing queen, wasn't it fun, though? I mean, what chutzpah, what audacity, what energy! Who'd get the stodgy CEO up and dancing otherwise? When it's really on, it's contageous inspired magic. It could be wonderfully sexy. No doubt there were many sitting there wishing they had the moxie. If I could only channel it and say Hah! Thatsa me and too bad if you don't like it! But noooo, I ruin it all by getting all ashamed and whimpery. I'm really working on looking at it like 'Wow, girl, you can be one hot mama!', rather than 'Eyeeeu, you pathetic slutty hag!' Do you ever wonder if Christine Aguillar, Madonna, etc. are permanently manic? Is that how they do it? And have you seen Beyonce recently on the steps of New York city hall? Shaking her booty wearing a teensy little skirt with just a little thong thingie underneath advertising her goods. Of course, they don't have to face the old salt mine employees either but I can't imagine them losing sleep over being an out of control slut.

I'm not saying I admire crude behavior, but a bumper sticker gave me hope: 'No fascinating woman ever got that way by being a good girl'. And by the way, I no longer have a profession. Fibromyalgia put an end to burning myself out doing a job that 'just wasn't me' - whoever that is.
