I once watched Apocalypse Now: Redux while on an 1/8th of shrooms (fresh/dried) with my college roomy. Afterwards I turned and said to him, "I'm depressed." Lawl, I was in the service, never even left training... poor saps in 'Nam :(

I’m always interested in which character my drug fiending friends most like or identify with. When I was younger I imagined I would have been Kurtz but when I see that initial fucked up in the hotel room scene and the determination to follow questionable orders I realise I’d be Willard.

Awwww man I went on a real booze binge yesterday. Today I hurt. Alcohol sucks, why is it the only readily available social lubricant we have? :(

The only reason is because leaving stuff with sugar out causes fermentation and alcohol is a by-product. And it used to be a necessity because it was how you could ensure safe drinking water. People drank very watered down wine instead of tap water and shit. It became such an integral part of life and culture because of this. So it's never gonna leave.

Manic as fuck, holy shit, been awake since Friday morning, and even that night I slept like 2 hours
I would take Zyprexa to calm down, but I don't know how it affects me and I have appointments tomorrow and the day after. I'm gonna be there fucked up either way

its not really so good in an acute sense, seroquel or haldol or something is better, or a benzo

But for one thing I would say take the Zyprexa, it's decent for agitation (although Haldol or Thorazine is better in an acute situation) and some maintain it (Zyprexa) is better for manic agitation in particular than some of the other choices, but I digress. Do not take the Zyprexa if you have been taking benzos. Not that it is likely to kill you or anything but as you have something to do tomorrow I'd advise against it, the combination can result in very strong sedation.

Cheers, good to know, they're 10mg, I'll wait a bit and see if normal sleep is likely, really gotta be sharp tomorrow morning, I guess sleep wins every time. I should know these things since I got em prescribed for a reason...

Does it work to calm your mania if you get outside and do some exercise or go for a long walk listening to a podcast or something like that? I’d always get worse the smaller the space I was in. With my bedroom being the worst place.

Always on the move... wide awake. Should have listened and taken the Zyprexa, but I doubt it wouldve laid me down honestly.
Soon I'll go for a voluntary inpatient to get it over with, whatever I have on paper and ready for the inevitable carrousel of meds. I cannot function in real life like this, a full time job would be a disaster

If it's true mania I don't want to calm it, insane bodyhigh, my vision feels different, like I can see the thoughts rushing through my head. It is not a pretty sight for others however.
Small rooms are very anxious for me too though, if I have to do work that is non-trivial and not particularly enjoyable I need to be able to pace around. It often happens that I just pace around in circles for half an hour, procrastinating and thinking about me procrastinating. But this is permanent and probably not as related to my bipolar cycles.

I used to take Rhodiola Rosea (which makes me very manic, but only for 1 day) and go on long walks, higher doses are some of the most enjoyable 'drug' experiences ever.
