What does mania feel like?
(I am in no way advocating drug use or energy drinks)
In order for a Neuro-typical to feel what it is like to have a manic episode they should drink 4 red bulls in a row, then have a line of speed, then 2 lines of cocaine and then a little LSD and ride the high. 9 times out of 10 that mixture of poison should create a simulation of manic episode. And 9 times out of 10 the person will crash hard and fall into a mini depression. Now they can understand a day in the life of having BiPolar.
We deal with that every day.
Wanna walk in our shoes?
Understanding, empathy, support are what we need from others and for people to get that if you wanna feel our mania you pay to get the drugs, you choose to get high; we don’t.
