    Apparently, I'm a Hypocrite

    Many people on the forum and internet in general are voicing anti psychiatry opinions. They are against medications. And it occurred to me that I take medications and then turn around and say they are bad for people. I am stable and centered and content on medications. But then I say they are...

    30 years later, bipolar

    Well, the bipolar has tripped me up, again. It's incompatible with my leg problem. I had a stomach ache and thought I could drive the car to the pharmacy/drugstore. I can't drive the car because sitting up straight makes my leg hurt severely. I know this but I was in the mood to drive the car at...

    External force is counteracting my movements on my command

    On my command, I can command an external force to stop certain movements, such as moving my leg. Like this: Me: Don't let me move my leg. Outside force: Ok... I am unable to move my leg. Me: Let me move my leg again. Outside force: Ok... I am able to move my leg.
