Funny how people say they’re “expecting” a baby as if there’s a possibility it could be anything else like a dog or a pokémon
okay THIS is my favorite so far
I have Bipolar I Disorder. I’ll tell you about some of the symptoms I experience and hopefully it will give you something to think about. It’s possible you could have it if you can relate, but of course, only a trained professional can tell you for sure. Also, everyone’s symptoms are different; what I experience may not be what everyone experiences, and if you can’t relate, that doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have it!
When I get depressed, I sleep a lot more than usual and I often stay in bed all day. I feel hopeless and often get to thinking that nobody cares about me, that nobody will ever care about me, and that I should just give up. I feel tired and lethargic and move very slowly. I lose interest in things and don’t see the point in doing things I used to enjoy. I usually become preoccupied with death and suicide – it can be very dangerous.
When I’m manic, I’m high energy all the time. I feel euphoric and I love myself (I can be a little arrogant when manic). I talk a lot and I talk fast and very loudly without much concern about people overhearing what I’m saying. I sleep very little or not at all but I feel wide awake and very alert. I often forget to eat for long stretches at a time. I have trouble concentrating and trouble sitting still, and often spend a lot of time pacing. I feel very restless and fidget a lot.I have almost no impulse control and often spend too much money on things I don’t need. On some occasions I’ve gone online looking for sex or alcohol.
I like fast electronic music when I’m manic (as opposed to rock when I’m depressed) and poetry (as opposed to… well, I don’t usually read when I’m depressed). When the mania is in its early stages, I am prolific and productive. I get inspired; I often make grand plans and have a lot of ideas. I think everything is fantastic and see a lot of wonder in the world, especially in nature. Everything seems romantic and poetic and beautiful. It’s like viewing the world through rose colored lenses.
There’s also hypomania, which is a less severe version of mania. And then there are mixed states, which for me are a combination of the hopelessness and suicidal thinking of a depression with the restlessness and high energy of mania.
I hope this helped. If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Everything makes so much more sense.
enough about sex positions has anyone discovered a reading position which doesn’t get uncomfortable after 5 minutes
Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.
Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.
There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?
High five, America!
