  1. This is soo SOOOO exciting!

    The cool thing about BP Hope’s blog is that you’re reaching your target audience & your post is going to get looked at big-time!!!!! I left a comment and retweeted it, of course.

    Sorry the comment wasn’t too exciting, but I have the chills, a possible sinus infection, coughs and I’m on codeine. My daughter is sick too and flipped out as she had to miss a field trip to the planetarium – this morning, our house’s atmosphere resembled something out of a scene from “Valley of the Dolls” and “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane”. Good times! 😉

    Anywhooooo – BIG ‘OL CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
    I’m incredibly proud of you!

    p.s. And you’re beautiful!

      1. Your stats/comments are going to skyrocket. That’s so cool!!!!!! Love you too! Marilla is sick, poor thing – it’s bad enough for a kid to miss regular school, but to miss a cool field trip to the planetarium sucks. We’ll take her there sometime, but it’s not as cool…..anyway, you do tell me enough that you appreciate me! Off to check out your comments again – Craig might write one! 😉 Perhaps even Lucy???? XOXOXOXOXOX

      1. It hit my idiotic brain I may have seemed insulting rather than funny and honest…Seriously…I’d rather do you than my second ex husband. You’re lovely and your hubby is very lucky ❤

      2. You are awesome, too! In a totally “not out to hit on your wife,hubby dude!” way.
        I dunno, I’ve had a couple of guys think complimenting a woman means I am after them, but really…I’m just secure enough to admit when someone is cool, male or female.

  2. I posted my comment on bpHope, but had to come here to give kudos for an excellent article. I also appreciate your openness to talk about a side effect that many are afraid to mention.

    1. Thank you so so much Bradley!! It makes me very happy when I get feedback. Stuff like this is hard for me to talk about but I hope you and others learn something from my story and grow in your understanding of this taboo topic.

    2. I concur. My first marriage was an exercise in “look who can’t keep it in their pants, what a monster!” But that was when I was diagnosed “dysthymic” and only given mood stabilizers, so duh, I was manic and had no judgment or filters.
      That is not an excuse, it’s fact. Since mood stabilizers I’ve never repeated the behavior.

      1. Okay, that was backwards, they only ever gave me anti depressants. But since Lithium…NOPE. And I refuse to believe a medication can make you a different person. I think it just balances what nature did not.

  3. Great post! I read it, commented,and tweeted it as well. @dyane, our house is an emotional/behavioral (not in the mental health sense, at least not exclusively) disaster as well, hopefully all our kids get calmed down soon…

    1. You’re the fucking best Jim! I need to go back over there and read the comments. My phone won’t stop buzzing and I’m trying to keep up. Hope the disaster calmed down! Kids are great at creating disasters of epic proportions 🙂


  4. Wow! This is so blunt and honest! I feel that you have told my story for me. I grew up in a Christian conservative home I had the promise ring (true love waits) and everything. I married my first boyfriend from high school. I cheated on him also when I became manic. The mania lasted over a year, I also got very paranoid I thought everyone was watching me and out to get me. My husband and I are divorced now, he did fight for me, but I was too ashamed I had so much guilt I can’t face him anymore. I get sick thinking about seeing or talking to him. Thank you for sharing your story. I’m so glad that Iam not alone.

    1. Wow! We are kindred spirits huh? Yeah it took a long long time for me to accept what happened and for my husband to forgive me. He knew that the mania was the thing that ultimately “caused” it but he had a hard time accepting it. I’m so sorry that things didn’t work out with you and your husband. You are not alone and you are a beautiful amazing person. Please don’t ever beat yourself up for what happened. You did your best and that’s all you can do. Ruminating about the past won’t change what happened. Please try and forgive yourself. You sound like a sweet person. I only wish the best for you!


  5. Hey Hotness I’m going to read it now. Sorry it’s taken me so long. You know I adore you but I’ve been battling the worst highs and lows in awhile plus I’m on a 7 night stretch at the hospital. BAD COMBO….Didn’t mean to shout that…oops…I’m on Ziprasidone. Not sure if that’s why? Anyhow can’t wait to read your wonderful post, as I’m certain it is since you are you!

    1. Why hello there! No worries. I understand. Life is ridiculously complicated and we are all busy. I’m so sorry for all your ups and downs. Hope the storms calm and you get some peace and tranquility soon. You’re such a sweetie.
