  • Reader Says Bipolar Is a Myth

    7 Apr 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Nearly two years ago, now, a reader named Beidoj left this comment on the blog What Is Dysphoric Mania?. A lot of you replied to this blog already, but enough time has passed that I think it's worthwhile to give newer readers - or those who missed this at the time - a chance to react. Beidoj said: Bipolar is a myth! Every symptom of Bipolar is a natural human trait which has simply been blown out of proportion to what society believes is normal. Every human being has the potential to be labelled with Bipolar and many are being labelled with it just because they don't conform to the "norm."…

  • Buying Medications Online? Think Again

    31 Mar 2014 | 7:45 pm
    Most of the time, buying medications online just isn't safe. When the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy reviewed a large sample of online pharmacies, it found that only 3 percent were in compliance with U.S. pharmacy laws and practice standards. Worse yet, says the FDA, it isn't always easy to tell a fake site from one that is legitimate. The consequences of purchasing drugs over the internet can be serious. The FDA says, "The drugs you receive may look real, but they could be counterfeit, contaminated, expired or otherwise unsafe. If you receive counterfeit or substandard medicines,…

  • Autism more likely when a parent has schizophrenia or bipolar disorder

    17 Mar 2014 | 9:00 pm
    In 2012, in the first large-scale research of its kind, researchers who looked at three studies with data from Israel, Sweden, and Stockholm County within Sweden, found an almost three times higher than average risk of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in children who have at least one parent with schizophrenia, and 2.6 times greater when a sibling has schizophrenia. A child was almost twice as likely to have an ASD when a parent had bipolar disorder, and 1.6 times more likely if there was a sibling with bipolar.

I’m dealing with an old…. old… old! back injury and am not writing as much as I would like.  When life throws me a curve ball-  I have to make sure I treat bipolar disorder first. I’m doing this! The mood is stable. yay. The back? That’s a challenge. I look for inspiration everywhere when life is tough.  I just saw the video below and it was exactly what I needed today.

    Hello to everyone! This is a reminder that I’m speaking for Cedar Hills Hospital here in Portland, Oregon on the topic of bipolar disorder.

    I’m watching the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fights with my brother Ed. We love hanging out once a month to watch the mma skills and have fun chatting and talking smack.  We usually go to a bar where there is a TV in each corner. I do ok in this environment. I’ve learned to just pick a spot and stick to one TV. Unfortunately, our regular bar can no longer afford the $1200 the UFC wants to show the fights. (Astonishing!) So I’m here at a Buffalo Wild Wings. The people are nice- the TV is huge and I can actually hear the commentators. It’s going to be packed. The problem? My…

  • Bipolar Disorder: Manic Grandiosity

    Julie Fast
    3 Mar 2014 | 11:08 am
    When my former partner Ivan got really sick in 1994, he told me he believed he was a genius. This upset him a lot because there was a part of him who knew this was an odd thing to feel, but the other part believed it. When he got so ill he could no longer have a coherent conversation, he definitely thought he knew more than most people. I found a piece of paper where he was listing all of his thoughts- one said, “I am genius.” Grandiosity is characterize by a person truly, truly believing that they are better than everyone and they make sure people know it!

    The Last Degree My niche is Life. For the past year or so I have had paralysis of analysis in establishing an online market brand. Paralysis of analysis is not great to be in and I see my team go through it when there is so much online training they get stuck and don’t do anything. But it has come to pass I have been blogging and learning all about online marketing since 2008 and like any accumulated knowledge it has come to fruition that I’ve learnt a lot but I lost some of that passion for blogging and the reason why I came online in the first place. For the past year I have struggled…

    The Last Degree Yesterday it was my birthday. Like New Years day the start of a new birthday is also a time I pause to assess my goals and New Year resolutions. So I left the family to take a walk to the local lookout and to get some breath air. Everyone knows exercise is great but keeping to a schedule and resolution to lose weight and get fit is a constant battle with almost everyone I know. I also have a wedding to plan this next 12 months and as my birthday flipped over to another year there was ever right now for another aim to lose a few kilos. No more could I say I only JUST had twins…

    The Last Degree Once upon a time someone told me there are only 3 ways to make money. 1. Sell something 2. Budget your current expenses or 3. Ask for a pay rise. So if you have a normal hourly wage most people would look to see if they could ask for a pay rise or look for a better paying job. Then you could look around the home for items to sell on eBay and then review your budget expenses to see where you can make some cuts to reduce your expenditure. But once you have sold all items you don’t need on eBay and STILL would like to earn more money then people start to think about what…

We were very excited commenting whether we would love this type of holiday or it would be a disaster and never do it again.

So after 6 nights here are some of my tips and would be loved about a motorhome holiday and holidaying in Tasmania. 1. Have an itinerary that does not include too much driving.

  • I compare myself

    14 Apr 2014 | 10:56 pm
    I compare myself with my former self, not with others. Not only that, I tend to compare my current self with the best I have been, which is when I have been midly manic. When I am my present “normal” self, I am far removed from when I have been my liveliest, most productive, most intense, most outgoing and effervescent. In sort, for myself, I am a hard act to follow.

    There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness, and terror involved in this kind of madness. When you’re high it’s tremendous. The ideas and feelings are fast and frequent like shooting stars, and you follow them until you find better and brighter ones. Shyness goes, the right words and gestures are suddenly there, the power to captivate others a felt certainty. There are interests found in uninteresting people. Sensuality is pervasive and the desire to seduce and be seduced irresistible. Feelings of ease, intensity, power, well-being, financial omnipotence, and euphoria…
  • Health Coaches Need Coaching, Too; My Struggle With Sugar Addiction

    14 Apr 2014 | 8:52 pm
    As most of you are already aware, I am a health & fitness coach, and I also live with bipolar disorder. A couple weeks ago, I was talking with my psychiatrist, and he said to me, “Lyndsay, you are always taking care of your clients and inspiring them. You’re taking care of the kids you babysit and the dogs you care for. It’s great, but let me ask you, who inspires you?“ A simple question, but it hit me hard. In that moment, I wanted to break down and cry. I absolutely LOVE what I do as a coach. The progress my clients make, the breakthroughs, helping others to…

In short, I wasn’t mentally or emotionally capable of writing a book and dealing with the fall out. In long… I actually had a literary agent in 2009-2010.  A proper one. I met her by accident. She casually emailed me, having found this blog, to ask me in for a chat. So I went.  I’m always up for a chat. I will speak to anyone. A beautiful office off Leicester Square, with this beautiful…
