I'm not aiming for hypomania, but I am aiming for "Normalcy". Let's see, do I like being severely depressed, very anxious, being suicidal because each day is worse than the last...living in a hell on earth. Or, do I prefer feeling relaxed, happy, more energetic, enjoying my children and being a better Daddy for them, and not being Suicidal at all!! Yea, I think I'll take the latter even if I had to eat rocks every day to keep feeling "well".

Hey Linkadge, I'm sorry that you are so miserable in your own skin that you can't be happy that someone else who has suffered for 20 plus years is finally feeling good. I know it could all change for me tomorrow ( even though i doubt it ) but I'm going to enjoy what I have today.

Tyler

P.S. Call it hypomania if you want, I really don't give a f*ck!
