I took my meds ten minutes ago another long day ends in a mania.

I am fast talking manic tired excited and needing sleep. I worked 12 hours and worked very hard. I also studied a good deal of statistics. I came home and did a little web mastering and email between comrades from the manic depression self help group and famous academics as well as union collegues.

I also wrote in my pen and ink journal and came down from all the work. I will do a little more pen and ink journal self work/self care and then crash for the day as planned at 16:00 PM. I can sleep tonight for up to 14 hours so as to avoid true mania. At least my GP says as long as I am getting enough rest for all the hours awake I should avoid negative consequences.

But like I say I had a good day. I worked hard and earned money. I studied hard and got ahead in my course materials. I enjoyed creating music and web pages and talking music with my partner and academic discussion about music. But these last mentioned activities were part of the mania so must be taken with a grain of salt.
