Mellow, thank you. The crushing lows are doing me in. Somehow the entire thing has morphed into recurrent MDD. It is atypical in that it is temporarily responsive to events.

I have a bipolar sibling. I remember what you wrote about your grandfather. Much as meds scare me (sorry) I can't be left to endure this unaided. I am getting very worn down.

What yo describe sounds *more* bipolar. But see, I still don't understand as that comment shows. Suicidal sounds like
major depression to me, but I don't understand these things clearly.

Jeez, I have never felt grandiose. On dexedrine I felt bullet-proof. Xanax, too. Usually I just feel sh*tty. That's a kinda' baseline. Bullet-proof means really just equal to my peers
and being able to withstand life. And I'd like to write again.

I have been assessed at times with double depressiion. Does MDD rule out the cyclothymia? There is so much conflicting info out there.

You wrote a few weeks back for support. I'm sorry I didn't
know what to say....

Yeah. Nothing soft about it. Thank you so much for hearing that and responding. I wish you were not struggling as much as you have been.
