My brain is wired to silly
Can’t help the way I think
Trait of a bipole manic
Why do I write silly, strange, offbeat stuff?
Because after being hospitalized twice they diagnosed me with bipolar mania.
It’s now comforting to know I have a medical reason for my behaviour.
And yes, a bipolar brain is wired different to a normal one. Handed down genetically at birth. An imbalance of chemicals in the brain for which there is no cure. Medications help keep some form of balance. Sort of. Sometimes I get carried away. Bear with me. I come back down to earth.
I hesitate writing about personal issues,
but feel discussion about mental health is important
