I am married and have a small family. I enjoy my time listening to others, writing music, painting, writing poetry. I like to learn languages, grapple, practice Judo and anything else I get the hankering for. I take on a lot of things, and have no problem with them. This is because I am mostly hypomanic. It's beautiful. But, there's a dark side. Bipolar Disorder is often portrayed as, well......someone being manic. It's scary, dangerous, threatening and bizarre. This is why stabilization treatment is so important. But, people with Bipolar Disorder are not like that all of the time. In fact, there are only very few people that I have told about my condition. They don't know. I'm here on this website because of the most extreme time I have gone manic. It was scary, dangerous, threatening and bizarre. I did very stupid things, acted irrationally and everyone but myself knew it. But, this reading is supposed to be stuff about me. well, that is a married man with two children, who has never been without work, takes his family to church, loves to get into deep conversation and teach his kids critical thinking. I love to take my son out in the woods and scout out nature. I am seen as being smart, but I would say "applied." I support my daughter as she swims on her school's team. I love my wife as she is my best friend. I am a twin, but fraternal. It's weird because our first born kids have the same birthday, just years apart. I'm ambedextrous. The beginning and latter parts are me.
