So, for those who haven't noticed, I'm a bit of a manic-depressive. Self diagnosed, have been since late high school. Never bothered with a formal diagnosis, 'cause what's the point? I don't want it treated, and I don't need someone with a less-intimate view of my brain than I to tell me what's going on inside my head. Back in high school, I used to have a pretty short cycle - sometimes bouncing back and forth a couple times in an hour - with some pretty high amplitude.. It has calmed down a lot since then, cycling on the order of weeks, with the highs being much lower than they once were. The lows can still get somewhat deep, but again not as bad as they did before.
I've barely been cycling the past couple years. I was in a bit of a slump these past few weeks, but it's hard to say if that was just work or not.
Then I decided to leave the group. Then I told my boss. I've been bouncing a lot more this past week than in a long time, with some serious highs. I'm gonna call this a good thing.
