Battling bipolar – not alone – sharing about psychosis

A letter to a friend in USA

Hi John,

For almost all my life I have been a, kind, of, high energy person. It was excess high energy that led to me being prescribed anti-psychotics etc. Prior to this any lows I had only lasted for a few hours.. then with the anti-psychotics I was low for weeks/months at a time.

I have been off all meds for nearly 8 years now and not had any extended lows…. Until very recently when I have been low for several days at a time – several times. I have just come out of one of these with renewed determination to make a difference, while of course not going high!

Up early (still before 7am here) I thought I’d use a little of my extra energy to tweet  [John Poehler sharing about psychosis] to promote your work. Keep at it. I know it is a rare thing that someone who has been through the whole bipolar thing finds the stability to work consistently on one project. (I’ve been jumping from one thing to another, which is not so clever.)

Kind regards and best wishes

Roger Smith
