Since 3 weeks, I am in a state of hypomania, the treshold for becoming a maniac.
On my way to mania, though, therapy and medication try to calm me down.
Normally, after 3 months, this transfers to depression that can take as many as 7 months.
In the book DSM, this mood disorder is defined as Bipolar type 1.
The medication typically consists of lithium, to be taken daily during the rest of your life.
However, I am an alcoholic. So, there is a danger of poisoning.
That why I take olanzapine (daily), an anti psychosis drug.
In my depression, prozac is added, to make me feel less comfortable.
My current program for life structure indicates my goal to drink less alcohol.
I may become quite normal, with a touch of hypomania, to enable me to write stories like this.
