A Glimpse Into Hypomania
I do stream-of-conscious bipolar writing here sometimes. I like it. And actually, other bipolars generally respond quite well to stream-of-conscious writing as well. I have found, though, that those without mental illness are left somewhat dumbfounded. Or, at least, that’s the impression I get from the lack of feedback. Stream-of-consciousness writing is tough to get if you’ve never been in that type of consciousness. Hypomania. Crazy.
I Do Stream-of-Conscious Bipolar, Hypomanic Writing Anyway
Nevertheless, I insist on doing streamed bipolar writing anyway. I’m obstinate that way.
And I really think hypomanic stream-of-conscious is illuminating, particularly for those with no experience in it. It really helps to give a glimpse into a moment of life in my brain. So for HealthyPlace I wrote, Hypomania Means Never Having to Make Sense.
Take a gander. Let me know what you think.
