    glad to know you are mainly in the middle. My hubbie takes meds for depression/anxiety. Many years ago he was diagnosed bi polar but I think his doctor was an idiot. My husband is not bi polar. good grief. what kind of doctors do we have in this country?

    A good friend says of doctors, "Remember that 50% of all doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class." Maybe your husband's doc was one of those... Jack

    I thank you for the acknowledgement of this condition in a very well thought out pattern of words. I've been on the verge of a few of these, I'm sure. I wish there were a cure for those who struggle daily in those cycles :)

    To judge from your comments, you know that there is no "cure." There is only help and love and the care of those you love. And the ministrations of a good doctor. Jack

    how interesting that you followed up with exhaustion. You can get exhausted from all such negativity! Good one, Jack.

    Thanks, Andrea. For me at least a bout of depression is exhausting, as is the occasional burst of mania. Fortunately, I live most of my life in the middle... Jack
