I don't know what's going on with me.
I suffer occasional very deep lingering bouts of depression that are cruel and beyond anything I could describe.
Mere words a?ways seem to miss the point.
But today is crazy!
I feel on top of the world, like I am on a real high. I have energy, well a good level for me. Mrs T looked out of the window and remarked what a miserable grey day it was. I looked out and think its beautiful, the colour of the darkish clouds, the grass still green and leaves everywhere. The occasional bus or car going past. All normal that I see every day, but different, and peaceful, and I'm even jittery inside with a euphoria that is not normally me.
Crazy man I tell you. Wish I could be like this all the time.
Meds not changed apart from more antibiotics.
Never take sugar in tea, but today I am and loving it.
I was even singing before and Evelyn and Alex were laughing at me!
Wish I could switch this on any time, on demand!

Rebound sometimes catches me out too, nothing extreme like a bipolar high but a sudden relief, that seems all the sharper for the darkness of my normal days
Trouble is it usually comes with a dip in its tail.
As Cleese says (I might paraphrase) in Clockwise, “It’s the hope I can’t stand. I can handle the despair; it’s the hope that gets me.”

Is it the new pill the doctor gave you when you were really down. You could have a good level in your body now.
Question Author
The new pill is Mirtazapine (I think), been on it over a week.
Glad it's helping, theland... maybe some relief for you too, from being so ill.
I used to take zispin for sleep, a long time back, that would hardly make you high would it? have you bipolar?
If you get too happy it might be worth talking to your doctor. Manic attacks can be terrifying.

Oh Pixie, today has been wonderful. Even my breathing hasn't been too much of a problem.
If the telly is good tonight, well, a perfect day :-):
I agree with you wolf, coming down off that high would be hell. Good to have a chat with GP
Really glad, theland.... enjoy it :-).
