talk about a wild ride . . .

Have you ever heard of Brief Psychosis Disorder? Me neither,
until about a week ago. If you'd like to know more about it,
I'll give you the recipe:

Get really stressed out about something. It doesn't
matter over what, but you have to be REALLY stressed.

Add not sleeping for a week or two,

Plus not eating correctly or enough,
(some people like this side effect--
losing 15 pounds in two weeks! I lost
7, and it wasn't even my BPD!)

And it equals=

A seriously messed up body chemistry and whacked out brain!

NOT good times.

Some women experience this after childbirth, which makes
sense, with the whole sleep deprivation thing.

Anyway, I'm thankful it is, indeed, BRIEF, and if you
had never heard of it, well, you can be thankful for

ugh, yikes, and bleah.

I wish that my Psychosis, or anyone elses, would make me lose weight. It seems to have the opposite effect on me!

Yuck-sounds terrible-especially the no sleeping part. I love to sleep. Hope you feel better soon!!!! If I had a magic wand I would make all your stress disappear.

believe me, Lola, that's not the way you wanna do it!

Thanks, Tipper, we're all WAY better!
