Hi LAD,

It seems like you're doing some manic-depressive cycling. Maybe it is just the new meds, but it's something to think about.

We're here for you, and thanks for being there for me.

Huh. not sure what that makes me, since much of your message resonated with me. But I am glad you seem to be feeling a little better.

Hi LAD --

Glad you didn't delete. A couple thots I've gotten over the years in 12-step meetings, fwiw.

"Blind leading the blind" pretty much describes what started as AA and led to other 12-step groups. Alcoholics helping alcoholics was thot outrageous nonsense at the time (1930s-40S) by the "professionals". But the track record is that sharing experience, strength and hope works for a lot of people.

As for ups and downs, well, people go thru that...which probably makes you human. I once had a sponsor describe it to me as a pendulum, since I came in bouncing off the walls. Gradually, the emotional swings became less severe. Put another way, generally my highs aren't as high and my lows aren't as low. But, yeah, extremes still scare me.

Personally I love a good rant and to rail against the world.
Stomp your feet and scream all you want.
I'll still be here with a bag of popcorn and maybe a big gulp of root beer.
you are dear to me Life; both life's.

This is one of the best places to blow a circuit LAD. And you're not responsible for discouraging anyone. If anything, blowing a circuit here probably helps people because, again, it makes you human.

That's why I don't go back and read my old posts.
