    By Jake Abbate Last Wednesday, Jordan Dreyer woke up in a Sports Authority parking lot in Orland Park, Illinois, and until the early hours of the afternoon, the day’s significance had apparently eluded him:  it was March 18, meaning it was exactly one year ago that he and his band, La Dispute, dropped their highly anticipated third full-length record, Rooms of the House.  It seems like a pretty big milestone to forget, considering the LP netted some of the most favorable reviews of their now decade-long existence and coincided with a rather intense touring schedule—more than 70 shows in…

    While the TARDIS-loving subset of local science-fiction lovers may be hitting the road this weekend to attend (Re)Generation Who, the mid-Atlantic Doctor Who convention on the outskirts of Baltimore, there’s a more intimate, literary-minded geekfest about to materialize right in the heart of Rittenhouse Square. The new issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction, the leading sf short-story magazine, features four Philly authors at the top of its table of contents: beloved fantasy novelist Gregory Frost, Nebula Award winner Michael Swanwick, short-story guru Tom Purdom and up-and-comer…
  • Do this: Saturday’s midnight performance of The Rocky Horror Show Live!

    Bill Chenevert
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:59 am
    First, an admission: I’d never gone to one of those midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, where enthusiasts dress up in corsets and bondage gear to shout interjections at the screen and finish the characters’ lines. The closest I’ve gotten to that kind of camp-cult experience was a colorful screening of Labyrinth at Bard College when I was in high school. But last Saturday night, I made it up to The Papermill in Kensington to see BrainSpunk Theater’s live stage version of Richard O’Brien’s sci-fi/queer/horror musical, and I was blown away.

This was how she chose to beckon us closer to the stage? I wondered, for a moment, if I was in the wrong industry. Growing up, I worked out a lot. My parents were both coaches, and my mom was a regular at a little gym owned by a Romanian ex-Olympian who trained power lifters. When I was 12, he tried to…

    Now that winter’s over and spring is starting, the Philadelphia Streets Department has a message for you: Please bear with us, but your trash might be picked up late. In a press release dispatched earlier this week, the agency explains that “due to the extreme weather the city has experienced over the past several winters, an unusually high number of our trash trucks have been scrapped or are in the shop for major repairs.  As a result, trash pickup has been impacted citywide with scattered one day collection delays.” In other words, put your trash out as you typically do,…

  • Can Energy Drinks Lead to Bipolar Disorder Mania?

    Julie Fast
    12 Mar 2015 | 8:22 pm
     (This is one of my top ten posts. Let me know what you think! Julie) I’ve written many books on bipolar disorder and they all discuss mania extensively- but they don’t discuss energy drinks and how they might affect mania. The reason is that the explosion of these drinks on the market is so new that it wasn’t even a topic of concern a few years ago.   How did so many products get on the market so quickly? I think it was the success of Red Bull and it moved on from there.  I have to ask:  Are we really that tired?  Or do we just like feeling buzzed?  Who knows?

I’m not saying I’m miserable or in a mood swing all of the time. I am saying that in order to stay as stable as possible, I treat bipolar disorder first in all things that I do. I’m speaking in Atlanta, Georgia on the 18th.  I started planing for the trip last week in terms of getting my sleep on the same time schedule and packing ahead of time.

    This is my blog from 2007.  Isn’t it amazing how this illness just keeps chugging along even when we do our best to stay stable! My depression is so much better, but I still have the tough days – the stunned days.  I have to get out my drill sergeant pretty often! From 2007:  I woke up depressed. I was up a few nights ago so I’m obviously rapid cycling. I called a friend to tell her I was manic- this is part of my treatment plan- and she said, “Ok. What happens next?” I said, “Well, I feel so good right now, but I will probably go down. It always happens even though I…

    I am blessed. In the course of my life, I’ve had the support of family and friends who have been able to help guide me through the sometime tumultuous times of this landscape called life. These relationships have proven to be mutually beneficial for both me as well as the other person. I never could have managed my Bipolar Disorder without them. But there are many who do not have this kind of assistance. Their friends and loved ones are no longer in their lives. This can be for any number of reasons but often it is as a result of their mental illness. Many are homeless. It is estimated that…
  • The Bipolar Conversation: A Communication Tip to Change Your Life

    I talk about the Bipolar Conversation in all of my books. It’s a concept I created to help family members (and anyone else who cares about someone with bipolar disorder) communicate with people who are in a mood swing. Learning to recognize and avoid the Bipolar Conversation is a technique that can improve your relationships immediately and forever.  Every person in my life learns about the Bipolar Conversation and believe me, it saves my relationships!   Successful communication happens when family members learn to respond to the reality of a mood swing instead of reacting to…

Not sure of the circumstances surrounding the case but as I read through the comments I found myself becoming more and more upset at the bashing of the police. I feel the need to defend my brothers and sisters in blue. I think it is important that the mental health community build a better relationship with the police instead of having this hateful bias. In a community that fights so hard against stigma and bias I feel they are the first to judge the police the…

    Taking care of ourselves when we have bipolar disorder means many things: medication, good sleep habits, social support, regular exercise to name a few. Another is knowing when to slow down and take a break. Over the past few months, I have gotten three nasty (and I mean really nasty) colds; the last one in my chest which I’m still struggling with. I am, for all intents and purposes, one big mess of snot, phlegm and hacking. Nice visual, right? My colds, usually, last a maximum of three days if I get one at all.

    The Last Degree A few years ago when I first heard of the internet marketing strategy of retargeting it was limited to the top end of town for blogs with massive traffic that could afford the services of expensive software that could track when a visitor left your website by following them around the internet with advertisements  encouraging them to click back to the website again. Accordingly to industry estimates reporting that less than 2% of web traffic make a purchase, complete a form or sign up for a product or service when on your site; which means that you are losing 98% of traffic.

    Guide to the Life Bipolar

  • Motivation and Success

    Christopher Roland
    21 Mar 2015 | 1:41 pm
    When we are sick—and even when we’re not—failures can derail our sense of self-worth, thereby sabotaging future efforts and perpetuating a perception of self-defeat. All areas of life are subject to our motivation to improve them in some way, when we can, as most people strive to do every day. The issues arise when we cannot envision any improvement—when we doom ourselves to failure by virtue of our unwillingness to try. If at work we make mistakes that catch the eye of a supervisor, that supervisor will wait for a recovery—a relief from their sense that they may have a weak link…

    16 Mar 2015 | 10:36 am
    One of the aspects of referential thinking that was especially strange during my mania was that certain people around me were “special,” and related to me in some way. Sometimes they were government spies, part of a special agency that was tracking me. Sometimes they were people with special psychic abilities—just like me. Not everyone was “special.” They came along at seemingly opportune times, to delivery me a message or, more often, keep me from running in front of traffic. They made me feel safe—there was a network of quiet sentinels keeping track of me. Perhaps that is why I…

    How is it that hope most often resides in the darkest of places? It exists only when needed. It’s there, waiting. And yet so often overlooked. During dark times I had given up searching for it, and that was almost my end. I didn’t believe what the doctors said about my recovery. My manic depression was on top of me every day. The pain was in every bird’s chirp, every coworker’s fleeting glance, every sniff of the nose of a passerby. I felt useless, pathetic, and every speck of creation could see me for it. All of these tormentors were inescapable, and so the prospect of enduring…

Inexorable forgiveness, awaiting apology from one to the other—apologies that can always be counted on. If something is not right, I nonetheless cannot wait to forgive him, to restore the balance, to move forward leaving the remedied problem behind. During those months of my drinking when I was in my greatest despair, the prospect of anyone else living with me would have been impossible. I vomited in my…
