As I was waiting to cross the street I happened to be standing on the corner next to none other than Kay Redfield Jamison...so I introduced myself and we had a short conversation. She's a VERY nice woman. I told her I was bipolar and had read her books; was a big fan etc. I also told her about DS and how she was often discussed on the site. She was very flattered. She asked me how I was doing etc. I often see her at my Starbucks across the street in the early mornings but don't strike up a conversation because she's usually buried in her paper. But today we got to chat. Thought that I'd share. She's also very lovely looking in person.

I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
Ok, I know its been AGES since I have been on here... but WOW! What happened ?!?! LOL! Are some of the older people still on this site or what? :)
