Wow, yes, we've got a lot in common! I've been under the care of psychiatrists for longer than I care to figure out. I don't get manic states nearly as bad as you, depression, OCD, ADD, anxiety, and a sprinkling of psychosis. I mostly just see, and hear things that others don't. For the longest time I thought everyone was like that since I've been like that as long as I can remember. The feds don't seem to think I'm an issue... But how the hell I could hold a job anymore is a good question! Possibly because I'm too bitchy to listen to the voices either! I'm mostly harmless.
I tried to send you a message. I don't know if it worked. This website annoys the hell out of me sometimes, it's kind of like a puzzle.
