Diagnosed by a psychiatrist several decades ago. Extremely high energy. Talking really fast. `"Bouncing off the walls" Last one figuratively speaking of course.

I don’t see that in me when I am manic but other people do.

Watch this small segment of this girl, Johanna, from 5:00-6:10 and from 6:45-7:47 (there is more of her in the documentary too)

Johanna does seem to demonstrate manic symptoms. Hope her meds are effective&safe. ie not dangerous side effects.

Can absolutely relate! Except one time I literally bounced off the wall (okay it was actually a door) when I bolted full speed into it. My speech can get pretty rapid and turn into word salad as well.

At the moment, I'm great. When I'm manic, I'm higher than life haha. It made a huge dent in the door but I didn't feel it, I was very unwell. How do you feel?

Huge dent in your door. I bet your door is really hurting. LOL. I feel sorry you were feeling so unwell. I am taking my meds for bipolar. Getting into SNL's "Adam Grossman" ( Jonah Hill) at "Benihana" Likewise "Marvelous Mrs Maisel" Keeping in touch with my family and friends. Happy the NBA is back. Sixers players and coach fan.

Seems you're doing well then! I'm happy for you. I don't follow the NBA but I love the tennis and AFL.

Could be doing better. Feeling very tired these days. I know its for safety. I don't like being cooped up. I went to a private school near the Merion Cricket club, Haverford PA. Kids from the school used to watch the matches after hrs. Unfamiliar with the AFL. American Football League? How are you coping?

Yeah isolation really causes strain on both mental and physical health. I miss my friends! Australian Football League, you should give it a look, it's a pretty unique game. I'm coping pretty well at the moment, I think. I've been very productive recently.

Yes isolation certainly can strain both mental and physical health. Noticed my blood sugar (diabetic) went from 207 in the eve. to 115 fasting. OTOH I did take an extra Jardiance. Happy you're coping well. How do I give Australian Football league a look. I like Australian basketball.
