Manic-depressive illness or bipolar disorder

Posted in Evil-E on December 12, 2008 by Con-Web

manic2This is Dedicated to “E” a long time Friend and once Brother who’s life has been a Series of Devastatingly Disappointing ups and downs!

Over the years i have lost a lot of good friends, some to Drugs some to Jail and some to Death. So it is safe to say that most of the Friends that i grew-up with are either On Drugs,Dead or in Jail! It is So hard to see the people that you Love and care about Pulled-in, consumed  and devastated by the Culture of the Ghetto. That’s why its even harder to see a Friend and loved one suffer at the hand of their own Destruction and torment!

Manic Depression

1rtsketchSeveral of people that i have cared about over the years have Battled with Manic Depression and Bipolar disorder. Unfortunately, in addition to affecting the sufferer’s life, this disease also has the potential to devastate the lives of friends and family. Not only is it very hard to watch a friend or loved ones life start to spiral out of  control but  Being around a Person during a Manic, Depressive, or Mixed Bipolar Episode is like watching a movie about a Roller Coaster while riding a Roller Coaster, one Minuet life is Great the future looks bright the World is Perfect. the next minute the world is coming to an end, life sucks and and life is barley worth living. the energy of such an emotional roller coaster is disorienting! If your child, spouse, sibling, boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, parent or friend is bipolar, you suffer almost as much as they do.
Manic episode: A manic episode is diagnosed if elevated mood occurs with 3 or more of the other symptoms most of the day, nearly every day, or for 1 week or longer. If the mood is irritable, 4 additional symptoms must be present.
Depressive episode: A depressive episode is diagnosed if 5 or more of these symptoms last most of the day, nearly every day, or for a period of 2 weeks or longer.
Mixed bipolar episode: In some people, however, symptoms of mania and depression can occur together in a mixed bipolar state. A person could have a very sad, hopeless mood, while feeling energized at the same time.

I truly hope that “E” gets the help he needs and is able to gain Stability and learn to keep up proper Maintenance of His Disorder!

I have been researching this Disorder Since the Fall of our Friendship, i will say i now have a better understanding of the Hell you go thru while living with this Disorder.

The following is a first hand account of how someone with this disored feels! please visit the site.

How I Feel
When I Am Manic

When I am manic:

I get very tense. All my muscles will tense up, and my shoulder blades and my jaw muscles begin to ache. It usually happens when I am busy, but busy doing the exact same things every day which don’t usually stress me out.

My heartbeat apparently speeds up. I don’t think it actually does, but it seems that way. Can be mistaken for excitement or enthusiasm or urgency. My level of excitement/urgency is out of proportion with what is happening to me or around me.

Physical activities requiring full muscle movements (cycling, swimming, lifting weights) becomes effortless. When manic, I have lifted weights weighing nearly one-and-a-half as much as I usually can and swam twenty lengths more than normal and cycled faster. And all with less apparent effort.

Activities requiring fine motor control become difficult. Tieing shoelaces requires utmost concentration. Shaving becomes difficult. Picking up or putting down stuff requires effort. Handwriting gets erratic (but typing remains accessible). I tend to feel jittery, as if my hands are shaking, but they never are.

I get twitchy. My hands and feet may rhythmically shake on their own accord. I may get spasms in my shoulders for no reason. I also get verbally twitchy. I talk to myself, repeating the words to myself. The twitchiness is not intense and it is easy, almost automatic, to damp them down when I recognise it is happening.

When I am manic, these are my symptoms of mania

I react to things way out of proportion to what is needed, either by becoming excited, or angry, or happy, or anxious.

I get irritated about the smallest things. I argue with waiters. I get annoyed with store clerks. I quarrel with the telephone operators. I get short tempered with my friends and my family.

Driving becomes difficult and hazardous. I overreact to oncoming or overtaking vehicles. My memory failure makes it difficult keep a mental picture of traffic around me. At intersections, if I look for cars in one direction, by the time I check the other direction I have forgotten if there are oncoming cars from the first direction.

I get the intense urge to do things, even if I know that they are stupid and even if I know they will irritate people. It could be in saying things to people, poking / tickling people, interrupting people when they are talking, or ignoring people.

I get vivid realistic full colour dreams. I feel as I am actually living these dreams as if they are real life. Sometimes, I am not sure if my memories are from real life or from one of these dreams. (I can never remember these or any of my dreams in detail).

I get major carbohydrate (not sugar) cravings. Bread, rice, and pasta are wonderful. Or, I don’t feel like eating at all.

Speech speeds up and may be a bit unintelligible to others (as noticed usually by people asking “what?”). Grammar remains intact.

When I am manic, I also get these symptoms of mania

There is a tendency when speaking to just have sentences trail off without finishing them. More frequently, I would be in the midst of a sentence and forget the next word I wanted to say. Indeed I forget all the words I need to use to show the point I was trying to make. I would be able to visualize what I want to say, but not be able to think how to say it.

Memory about facts or items fail. I can’t remember dates, names of things, or when I met people, or telephone numbers. I often can’t remember activities that I have done unless strongly reminded. I forget things I have to do, appointments, etc. I am famous among my friends for this.

Productivity soars as I feel better, move faster, get things done. Even though I find this a good thing, it is an indicator because it degenerates to…

I get ideas on all the things I want to do. Good ideas. I think this is what the standard texts mean by grandiose ideas, but it doesn’t manifest as “grandiose.” Just good ideas and lots and lots of them. This can halt any functionality I have as I sit down and think on them instead of getting ahead with what I have to do. Few of these get acted upon eventually. Many projects may be started but few are finished.

I get easily confused if I have more than one thing to do. Everything become equally urgent and I find myself swapping between doing 5 things at once (and getting none done adequately). I cannot concentrate enough to do one thing because I feel other things need to get done “now!”. One of most obvious ways I notice this is I start walking back and forth between two locations to get two things done simultaneously (for example – trying to change on a morning and trying to get breakfast organized).

My thoughts begin to get out of my control.

When I am manic:

At work, I tend to get focused on one project almost to the exclusion of everything else. I visualise with crystal clarity what needs to be done and I can’t wait to get back to working on the project. I take time off other tasks, even important ones to finish the project. Other work suffers and paperwork from them pile up on my desk. Activities outside work may suffer.

I stay at work until very late hours of the night, often past midnight to finish a project even though everyone else has left the office since six pm. I may come in early to start working on it. Everything on the project has to be just right. It’s almost an obsession.

If there are other persons working on the project, I become impatient with their slowness or inability to understand how the project needs to go. I quarrel with others. Given half a chance I take over even though this might not be the most diplomatic thing to do.


My poetry exists when I’m hypomanic. Language becomes a toy to play with rather than a workman’s tool of communication. I can churn out limericks within minutes on anything that is happening around me. My poetry comes out fully formed in a burst lasting from two to less than twenty minutes and needs no fine tuning or rewriting.

A Point of Note. I thought a lot of these things were my normal behaviour until I went on medication. After all, none are really so far out of the ordinary. But they all stop when I am stable.

These days, I monitor myself closely. Once I am getting one or two of the symptoms of mania, I actively try to calm myself down with deep breathing or taking a 5 minutes off from what I am doing, etc. I have found this to be useful in staving off the onset of the hypomania and sometimes the intensity of the hypomania. And it keeps me functional longer if the it starts happening at work, enough to finish work for the day sometimes.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!November 7,2008medmarijuana_250x250_main

Michigan Makes Medical Marijuana Legal

Twelve states currently have provisions allowing patients to use medical marijuana, and ten more have similar legislation pending. Now Michigan voters have voted to permit the medical use of this controversial drug. Some shudder at the thought, but others insist that marijuana is a valuable medicine.  Michigan Will bring America one step closer to embracing medical marijuana?

I am proud to tell you that proposal 1 in Michigan has passed by a landslide margin of 62% by 38%.If your if your unaware about prop 1 it it the legalization of medical marijuana.By law if prescribed medical marijuana you will be able top possess up to and no more than two and a half ounces or about 42 grams.Also you will not be giving your cannabis through the state of Michigan but you will be able to legally possess and cultivate for your personal consumption up to and no more than twelve plants.

HeeHeeHee Thank you sincerly to all you voters.Together we will make a difference help fight cancer,treat depression,severely weaken the symptoms of glaucoma.Not to mention cannabis is a great cash crop for the United States of America.

Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana has strong support from voters and health organizations. The federal government, however, has resisted any change to marijuana’s illegal status at the federal level. The Supreme Court ruled in 2005 in Raich v. Gonzales that the federal government can prosecute medical marijuana patients, even in states with compassionate use laws, and several medical marijuana dispensaries in California have since been subject to Drug Enforcement Administration raids.

Federal Law

In the wake of the June 2005 Supreme Court decision, Congress had an opportunity to protect patients by passing an amendment to a Justice Department spending bill that would have prohibited the department from spending any money to undermine state medical marijuana laws. The amendment, offered for the third year in a row by Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-22nd/NY) and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-46th/CA), did not pass but got 161 votes – more than it has ever received before. This is substantial progress given that in 1998, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 311-94 for a non-binding resolution condemning medical marijuana.

Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I substance, defined as having a high potential for abuse and no medicinal value. Multiple petitions for rescheduling marijuana have been submitted by reform advocates over the last 30 years. The most recent, submitted in 2002 by the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis, calls for a full review of the scientific research and medical practice regarding marijuana. The Food and Drug Administration has yet to respond to this petition.

In 1978, the federal government was forced to allow some patients access to medical marijuana after a “medical necessity” defense was recognized in court, creating the Investigational New Drug (IND) compassionate access program. The IND, which allowed some patients to receive medical marijuana from the government, was closed to new patients in 1992 after it was flooded by applications from AIDS patients. Today, seven surviving patients still receive medical marijuana from the federal government.

State Law

The 2005 Raich Supreme Court decision does not overturn or affect state law, and 99% of all marijuana arrests take place at the state or local level. This means that state laws afford substantial protection to medical marijuana patients. Currently, laws that effectively remove state-level criminal penalties for growing and/or possessing medical marijuana are in place in Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. Ten states, plus the District of Columbia, have symbolic medical marijuana laws (laws that support medical marijuana but do not provide patients with legal protection under state law).

New Mexico passed its medical marijuana bill in early 2007. In 1998, voters in the District of Columbia approved a medical marijuana initiative by 69% but Congress was able to nullify the vote results because D.C. is a federal district and not a state.

Twelve states have medical marijuana research laws, and only fifteen states have never had a positive medical marijuana law.

The Courts

In addition to changing state laws, medical marijuana advocates have pursued reform through the courts, most recently in the Raich v. Ashcroft Supreme Court case. Angel Raich, a medical marijuana patient in California, sued the federal government to stop federal raids against patients. Though she did not win the case, the ruling left state medical marijuana laws intact. She is now back in court with an appeal based on a different set of arguments. The new arguments assert that she should be allowed to use medical marijuana because she has the fundamental right to avoid death and severe pain under the Fifth and Ninth Amendments.

In 1997, Conant v. McCaffrey, a class-action lawsuit, was filed on behalf of physicians and seriously ill patients against Drug Czar General Barry McCaffrey and other top federal officials who threatened to revoke prescription licenses or criminally prosecute physicians who recommend medical marijuana. In 2002, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously decided to uphold the right of doctors to recommend marijuana to their patients and of patients to receive that recommendation. Judge Mary Schroeder wrote the majority opinion, which noted that the federal government’s policy of revoking doctors’ licenses “leaves…no security for free discussion.” A concurring opinion by Judge Alex Kozinski stepped even further, noting the prevailing evidence on the medical usefulness of marijuana.

Public Support

Medical marijuana is one of the most widely supported issues in drug policy reform. Numerous published studies suggest that marijuana has medical value in treating patients with serious illnesses such as AIDS, glaucoma, cancer, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and chronic pain. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine, in the most comprehensive study of medical marijuana’s efficacy to date, concluded, “Nausea, appetite loss, pain and anxiety . . . all can be mitigated by marijuana.” Allowing patients legal access to medical marijuana has been discussed by numerous organizations, including the AIDS Action Council, American Bar Association, American Public Health Association, California Medical Association, National Association of Attorneys General, and several state nurses associations.

Public opinion is also in favor of ending the prohibition of medical marijuana. According to a 1999 Gallup poll, 73% of Americans are in favor of “making marijuana legally available for doctors to prescribe in order to reduce pain and suffering.” In a 2004 poll commissioned by AARP, 72% of Americans ages 45 and older thought marijuana should be legal for medicinal purposes if recommended by a doctor. Also, since 1996, voters in eight states plus the District of Columbia have passed favorable medical marijuana ballot initiatives.


Big Rog Day 6 and Bell’s Palsy Herbal Therapy

Posted in The Band on November 1, 2008 by Con-Web

So Friday Was Halloween and I spent the day with the kids, baking cookies, carving pumpkins ECT. By the end of the day I was exhausted. Had a headache, eye ache, pain in my face and behind my ear. I took the kids trick or treating and felt even worse by the end of that. Now here is where I experienced something very interesting. A friend stopped over and suggested I try some herbal therapy and not witch-hazel LOL.

So I figured it couldn’t hurt, I partook in a few doses of this very powerful dank treatment and within no time I felt 110% better the headache, eye ache, pain in my face and behind my ear had gone away and I no longer felt the extreme eye strain I was earlier. I also found that I was able to work on the computer with out the extreme pain and discomfort to my eye and ear. Now the left side of my face still was not working but I felt great. Then as I was talking I started to feel tingling in my face and scalp from the back left side of my head I literally felt the use of my bottom half of the left side of my lip spontaneously return, now I am not saying I was instantly cured but I consider this to be the most progress I have had since my on set of the Bell’s Palsy on Monday Morning. Prior to this treatment I had to push a glass of water tight in to the left side of my mouth in order to drink and after I was able to drink straight from the front of my mouth. I woke up this morning feeling better than I have all week and the improved use of my lower lip seems to have continued.

So take from this what you will and I hope that my putting this information out there helps someone else to work through there experiences, just know that no matter how bad things seam they could definitely be worse. I look at life like everyday I wake up is a good day because some people don’t!

Big thanks to my friends and family that have helped me to realize that this is something I will get through and that staying positive is the best medicine, oh ya and that there are alternative forms of therapy out there that are not man made, but that is a whole different blog!!!!

Big Rog day 3 dealing with Bell’s Palsy

Posted in The Band on October 29, 2008 by Con-Web

Well I am definitely glad to be alive and I have had two days of extra time with my kids getting them off to school and dropping them off at the bus so it’s not all bad. All night I had twitching on the left side of my face which I am told is a good sign that the nerves are trying to fire again.

I went to the chiropractor again today and had some electro muscle stimulation and a neck adjustment and I am soon off to another doctor’s appointment. I am also contacting a neurologist just to be safe! I learned that I should not try to exercise my facial muscles until the nerves start to come back as that can cause permanent damage.

I am getting lots of rest and getting lots of protein as protein promotes the growth of nerves. I have been using an eye patch and eye cream at night to protect my eye and eye drops with sunglasses throughout the day. So I am just taking it one day at a time, I will be in the studio tonight, and at work tomorrow. I am trying to be patient and stay positive about it all which has been going pretty well since I have the support of all of my friends and family. It’s been scarier than anything, a little embarrassing in public but I don’t normally care what people think about me anyway so no biggy.

O and yes Sheila my Weiner still works LMAO!!!!
