I was diagnosed with it on a few separate occasions (usually when something blows up and I end up with doctors - years and cities apart). I will tell them about it, they ignore it, and then tell me the same things back to me.

I don't have much to say in terms of usefulness - but good luck. I hope we still get the "Lyle" we love.

I didn't realize you are in Austin now - I am going through there on a road trip and staying over to visit with some friends in about a month from now. I'd offer to take you out for drinks, but it sounds like now isn't the best time.

Glad to hear you're getting some treatment Lyle. Many moons ago I was a psych nurse - out of control mania really was quite sad. So much self destructive behaviour. I can definitely understand the feelings of wanting to be a little hypermanic - but like diabetics who want their sugars to be a little high (more energy but ultimately bad on the small blood vessels) it's a real hard state to maintain because once you slide past the desired zone you are unable to correct it.

I do appreciate your no-nonsense approach to diet and fitness. The "risk" of being called out on the forum makes me a better researcher. I try not to speak without fact checking, and the lack of bro-science on the forum is refreshing. In that vein, I hope you don't get too easy on us. I'd hate to see this place degenerate into another bro-science site.

I hope you have good success with your treatment and don't be too hard on yourself. Bipolar disorder is an illness, not something you asked for. Yes, you have to take responsibility for whether or not you adhere to treatment - but after a certain point it spins out of your control.

Not gonna lie.
Without my hypomania... I never feel as creative or as intelligent. In fact I feel like a moron.
For every person who tells me I didn't read something when I ask a question.
The truth is... Is the brain fog side effects often makes me unable to learn via written word at times.

With meds I feel handicapped...
I skip over information. It's frustrating and upsetting... Hence video podcasts are a easier way for me to learn.

I've often wondered if taking yohimbine to trigger hypomania would work.
Controlling mania would be amazing...
But the knowledge I might make myself less intelligent stops me.
Or that going into full mania is a possibility.
I actually blew my entire bank balance last time that happened.

I take tegretol for BP which doesn't cause weight gain to a great extent.
So look into that.

Other BP meds ballooned my weight up aprx 150 lbs... (290 at 5 ft 8 at my worst) So be careful.
It was so difficult to lose that weight...plus I'm left with ugly stretch marks and loose skin.
If there's a cheat around any of the common issues...
Via some trick "eg a very unknown drug"... Post it.

Note: My depression probably puts a negative slant on everything. I am in the best shape I've ever been.

All the best Lyle! Hopefully as GoldenDilemma pointed out the rude little cyberminions will go somewhere else now. If they do, your fantastic knowledge will end up reaching more people.

You're a pretty funny/witty dude. I don't imagine it'll be very difficult to make some good friends as long as you put yourself in a position to meet them.

Good luck!

Nah, I'll be fine by then and one of the things that I am actively trying to change about my overall life is my general lack of socialization, etc. So get in touch when you come through. I'll tell you where the best food is

Edit: Fine is the wrong word. Stable would be a better choice.

Trust me I've thought about that for years. A controlled low level hypomanic state would be AWESOME. I don't know if it's possible.

It does. Even if objectively things aren't taht bad, depression makes you parse it in a way that is somehow.

The difficulty has been putting myself out there. I know that I can/will meet folks if I just get out (and my lack of interests in the typical things doesnt' help). Hence this site meetup and my hopes for it helping. Already finding groups of like minded folks (read: nerds) and that will at least get me started. Socialization for me is very much a practice thing. I get out of practice and I stop. I get back into practice and the benefits make it a nice positive reinforcement feedforward cycle. We'll see.

Cyberminions need an echo chamber and a bunch of people thinking they were the very first to combine Lyle's GBR with 531 or PHAT, too.
