being bipolar is hard. i was raised with a father who suffered ptsd and flashbacks from vietnam.the way i was taught to deal with a problem was whipping someones ass. then feeling bad about what i did after the damage had been done.mood swings was normal for me.for example i would be happy in a great mood and if someone looked a me the wrong way.it took over. it being the rage.for the longest time i wondered where does this rage come from. i thought i was a good guy and was most of the time.im not bragging about this. im ashamed and want to help people understand that at the snap of a finger i could be triggered.but ive got help for this bipolar. prx lithium 900mg klonpin 2mg a day.
