Between my normal depression/anxiety/bipolar, I was feeling really scary last month &went to my therapist. She said I'm most likely in a manic episode right now, which does explain the hysterical and extreme nature of how I'm feeling. She told me I probably have PPD on top. 😁👌
So, unfortunately, though what would be best for my mental state and reputation would be to stay home until it goes away, I work a lot these days and we need the money. Especially if I'm going to have to pay a psychologist to test me and a psychiatrist to medicate me. It's
frustrating and exhausting to say the least. I'm so tired. I don't sleep much anymore. I can't eat. Lost 30 pounds in two months with zero effort. Trust me, it doesn't sound good if you know how much more weight I can still lose. I'm officially on watch for my weight.

On old maps, there are places labeled “Here Be Dragons” -- the unfamiliar, the unknown. As humans, our imagination spins fantasies to fill those empty spaces on the map and we are more likely to fill them with cautionary tales than with those of the fantastic.
1/5
Don’t do X – you don’t know what’s there; you might get lost, hurt, killed, or thousands of other things which are not pleasant.

But time passes, and as people explore, there are fewer and fewer dragons left on the map.
2/5
The unknown becomes familiar and now… we can see and interact with people and places on the other side of the world. The unknown is known and dragons and fear give way to understanding.

Confessions of a bipolar professor (1/5): #hypomania sounds like it is a wonderful thing - increased energy fueling creativity and good times! What's not to like? But for me, I'm in the midst of dysmorphic hypomania. And it just plain sucks.

(2/5) my brain, which has been rigorously trained for decades, suddenly believes that 1 + 1 = blue. I know I am not thinking rationally, but my head is also telling me to do all sorts of crazy things!

#bipolar #hypomania #AcademicTwitter
(3/5) brain: let's destroy relationships! Let's yell at everybody and go down in the flames of angry glory! Let's run away and purchase a house in Spain! Let's be the worst version of ourself!

Rational brain: wait a second....

I have spent the last few years trying to rethink #mhealth. As we work to lessen #stigma and fear I ask everyone to keep an open mind, give feedback, and join me as I delve into some unique hypotheses. 1/
This started with my sphere of mental health. (Pinned) . I don’t believe true “normal” exists and feel everyone has issues that fit within the sphere. A dx comes because of observations that are inherently flawed & variable due to relative perceptions. 2/
I use the word “flawed” because none of us can read minds, therefore, there is no objective way to truly know exactly what someone is going through or how extreme their suffering is. This is one reasons #mhealth pros have such a difficult job. 3/

"Can #African clinics help decode #schizophrenia and #bipolar disorder by collecting #DNA from thousands of patients?"

Sounds like a job for Wojcicki sister #3, Janet, #Fulbright scholar. They were looking for ways to ~diversify~ their biobank! 🙄
