Karl Terrell Nightshade has not received any gifts yet
It's very easy to fall prey to catastrophic thinking as a result of bi-polar disorder. It actually hurts the people close to me when I struggle with it. Anyone else, without actually having OCD become quite obsessive or compulsive in their thinking, such as circular thinking, or counting? Has a little comment like, 'you might want to straighten your tie' ever become the crack of doom? Not everyone jumps to the extremes, but people with bipolar seem to have that tendency. In fact, bi-polar sufferers tend to have very high rates of OCD. I would be very pleased if you all would share with our friends how you manage to cope with such thinking.
Below is an interesting article I've included on the relationship between Bi-polar Disorder and OCD by Natasha Tracy if interested:

Yours, forever faithfully,
My name is Karl Terrell, Otherwise to be known as Nightshade. I experienced early onset puberty which then led to early onset bi-polar disorder. I&II. And social anxiety disorder. And borderline, so they tell me. I am also a trained and certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Before becoming a CPRS, though I played rock music in bars and clubs from 11 years of age until I fell apart at age 31. This blog will deal with bi-polar issues, such as coping skills, humor, tears, heartache and other things we suffer when dealing with symptoms. Always yours, Nightshade.
