In the psych world (remember I spent several weeks in a psych Hos[ital for attempted suicide so I think I'm an expert now though SUNNY problem would buy my line of sh*t!) the popular "catch all" phrase is Bi-Polar and I'm wondering like, "who isn't Bi-Polar. It just means someone is moody basically.
Now I'm kidding of course so before I piss of all the psychologists and psychiatrists reading please understand I'm having a bit of sarcastic fun at your expense. I was treated very well in the hospital, I was a very sick guy and I had a difficult diagnosis because the alcoholism/addiction stuff really muddied the waters and made it quite hard to tell what was really going on w/me...
But everybody on my in the psych ward had bi-polar as part of their diagnosis so it became kind of a joke. Jeez we were a bunch of idiots in there and the inmates really did run that asylum. I still had credit cards w/no limit then so I was ordering pizza for the 12 of us in that wing every single night. i put on 20 lbs in 3 weeks in that place. Of course I was emaciated when they brought me in at 6'1" and 139 lbs...that's a whopping 65 lbs less then I weigh today.
I literally had been starving myself on the Cocaine, Vodka and Health Ice Cream Bar diet for the past 9 months. Oh yea, once in awhile I'd put a splash of Crabapple or OJ in my drink so Iwas getting some Vit C!
Wow, this is one freaking disoriented post, eh?! I like 'em like that sometimes, they are kind of goofy and that is the way i'm feeling this afternoon and that is what got me thinking about Bi-Polar. Why? because my mood has been peak then valley then peak then valley all day long today...
And that reminded me of the bi-polar diagnosis I received for my stay in the Nut Case Hotel...now i'm not going to start going into details about my stay in the psych ward but I realize that my readership deserves a full length post on the topic so I will do that here in the next few days.
I also am on having a few guest bloggers write a post or possibly a small series of posts, focusing on the friends and family members of alcoholic/addicts and what hell they had to go through during our active addictions. So stay tuned for that. Oh and I will add to any reader out there, if you have a story of alcoholism/addiction whether it is your own or a family member or friend, let me know. I'll post as many as i get as long as they are true stories and relevant to the subject.
OK, I think I've crammed enough stuff into a post that I initially had no idea I was going to write...funny how that happens!
