UPS & DOWNS
“When it comes to most true bipolars, consider this thought: Genius by birth, bipolar by design.”
― Stanley Victor Paskavich
A gift which causes more trouble than one can imagine and gives one more fun than one person at a time deserves. All the energy and inspiration one person would possibly need. It feels endless and at times you feel like you could fly over the rainbow and follow the flowing stream of color the stars set in motion. But the mania can always slip away too far. Without someone or something to help you with your bearings you could zoom out into space and never return.
“Second star to the right, straight on till morning.” Peter Pan
The grandiosity of bipolar when it hits, makes you feel in total control. No stopping you ever. Surprise! CRASH & BURN.
When it flips to Downs, you head straight toward the earth, and bipolar brings on the deepest state of depression, OUT OF NO WHERE! Always a surprise a moment. Not the kind you necessarily desire.
Ups & Downs. Ups are great if they don’t take you too far out into the manic mind-fields. Downs, are contrary, they take you to the deepest, darkest of moods, overflowing with physically emotional pain, almost certain to carry you into a divine madness filled with thoughts of suicide, wantings of physical pain making one bleed. Wanting the blood to drain from inside your flesh. This thought, you think, will cause the pain to be released.
Lies. Suicide is not the answer. But it is like fighting with the demons from Hell to fend off death from grabbing your hand to lead you away. More like hypnosis, it whispers, there is nothing to hold you here. Pulling on your strengths to resist, you replace the thoughts the demons whisper in a hiss, with thoughts of what reasons would help you to see you need to stay alive. It could be a fight for your life for any hour, a day, a month, a year, or for as long as you are able to stay alive.

Ups & Downs pulls together the pages very much related to the beneficial treatment of Bipolar & other issues connected to helping you cope with life from Medical Marijuana to Meditation to Inspiration from Music to creating an Appetite where one doesn’t exist.
I will be adding and editing all of these pages as often as I find something new to add or when I feel they need refreshing. I hope you find something helpful, inspirational, calming, enjoyable, and healing. So much more can be said. I will try to close what I have written up to now with a quotation fitting for the conclusion to this introduction.
QUOTATION TO FOLLOW SHORTLY. MAYBE A VIDEO TO HAVE A LOOK AT SOME FAMOUS BIPOLARS. IT JUST SHOWS BIPOLAR DOESN’T STAND AGAINST YOU WHEN TRYING TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS. AND FOR NOW, EVEN US BIPOLARS NEED A FOOD BREAK, THOUGH WE TOO OFTEN FORGET!
A Quote on YouTube I found under the video following showing Famous Bipolars. Many, I am certain will be recognized.
“Bipolar people are obviously not ordinary. In fact, they seem to excel in whatever they do. Geniuses and Bipolar people think out of the box and pursue things the average person (the so called perfectly ordinary and perfectly sane person) might think is a little “crazy”. I’m not exactly sure what the criterion for being Bipolar is, but it must include striving for perfection, being brave, having an open mind and pursuing greatness in whatever they love to do.”
A-Z OF FAMOUS PEOPLE WHO ARE BIPOLAR [prefer to alter the title. I do not feel Bipolar is always a disorder, My feeling for myself is I am Bipolar-In-Order & continually working at it remaining so.
“I AM come of a race noted for vigor of fancy and ardor of passion. Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence–whether much that is glorious–whether all that is profound–does not spring from disease of thought–from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect. They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their gray visions they obtain glimpses of eternity, and thrill, in waking, to find that they have been upon the verge of the great secret. In snatches, they learn something of the wisdom which is of good, and more of the mere knowledge which is of evil. They penetrate, however, rudderless or compassless into the vast ocean of the “light ineffable”, and again, like the adventures of the Nubian geographer, “agressi sunt mare tenebrarum, quid in eo esset exploraturi”. [Translation: “They adventures into the sea of darkness, in order to explore what it might contain.”]
We will say then, that I am mad.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora
