Bipolar Disorder NOS

Bipolar Disorder NOS. What the hell does that mean? I know NOS stands for “Not Otherwise Specified.” But again, I ask, “What the hell does that mean?” My first introduction to NOS was when I was attending a support group in Long Beach. A couple of people had that diagnosis and they weren’t happy about it. I didn’t give it…

Medications

Breaking the Rules My regular readers know that I have a pretty firm rule that I do not discuss medications by name because I don’t want to discourage someone from taking a med that didn’t work for me, but might work for them. We are not all identical, biochemically speaking. For the 8 years I’ve been writing this blog, I…

Time for Further Updates

Yesterday, I posted an article giving a couple of updates regarding what I’ve been up to during my hiatus. If you missed it, you can find it HERE.

What the F*ck is Wrong With Saying Sh*t?

I hate the word fuck. It also happens to be one of my favorite words. Whether I love it or hate it, depends on how it’s used. It is my humble opinion that it is used far too often. A Touch of History It’s been interesting watching the progression of swear words on TV over the years. As a kid…

Weekly Wrap-Up January 23, 2016

Mood Well, the good news is I had no extremes last week. I was well balanced except for a horrible cold. It, and the meds I was taking, kept me down most of the time. I did get lonely a lot, which I should be use to since writing is a lonely sport, but my foggy head made it hard…
