This strange drug is something you take, or are given, as lead-up to deep anesthesia prior to going into the operating room for surgery. When I'm in a hypomanic or manic state I tend to be more social and outgoing. Ancillary businesses like motels and gas stations popped up everywhere to accommodate the automobile travel.

During certain episodes I may as well be a stranger. I have asked my male friend, the one who doesn't let me know, to just send me a very short e-mail if he is going to be out of commission and not contact me - but he doesn't seem to be able to do this. Bootleggers, racketeers and crime bosses like Al Capone were glad to supply liquor to the masses even though federal agents cracked down on their operations.

I am married and have three sons, two of whom live at home. They might need energy from me. You mentioned that persons with bipolar depression allow their needs to override the needs of their kids - but my male friend has raised two autistic and profoundly retarded children, who are now adults, and I don't know of a better parent. I didn't have anything to do with her after that. It was not until I came to an adult understanding of what was going on at the ripe old age of 45 that I found pity for him. I don't want to be helpful or courteous or the bigger person at the moment.
I'm not sure how else to reach you so hopefully you'll see this! Do they act as if you are a non factor during their episodes. As far as people vanishing, it happened to me several times in my youth, and I was devastated worse each time it did. They are everywhere, aren't they? Maybe you pushed him a bit too fast and he needs time. This applies to the majority of the time. I think you've maybe touched on that, if I remember correctly.
Please preserve the hyperlinks in the story. In have been depressed my whole life. At the risk of sounding whiny, I want to repeat again that, although I am not bipolar, I have struggled with depression all of my life, and also have a severe panic disorder, which is controlled by medication - but I suffered with panic through many years without meds, because there weren't the more effective meds that are available today at that time.
