My War Story

Part 4 <

So I am diagnosed as Bipolar I.  A mental disorder assigned by Grady doctors in 2009. For those unaware it is a chemical imbalance in the brain that can cause periods of extreme happiness called manic episodes and times of strong sorrow called depression episodes. 2009 was my first manic episode and was immediately followed by being locked-up, which I mentioned in Part 2 of my War Story. They say I had a bipolar break which is known to occur at the age of 25. The true cause is unknown as to why this happens to some.

The best way I can describe being bipolar during an episode is that everything seems perfectly normal to you but completely abnormal to everyone else except GOD at this particular time. So my only advice or anecdote of assistance is that medicine can help reestablish a "social norm" status quo of mental balance acceptable enough to keep one out of jail and prison. Personally I don't feel like anything is truly out of balance because we are all different individuals with different mixtures of the stuff that makes us who we are. So for some of us to be more or less of anything chemical inside our brains sounds only right. We were all created by The Anointed One, Who makes no mistakes. But if harm is caused to one's self or others then I think some precaution is needed.

So if you were unaware I play basketball, very well I've been told. And I was able to get on a disabled squad called DSOU or Don't Sleep On Us organized by Yoshi a.k.a. Sylvester Poe. He's a nice guy I met in passing who I connected with and allowed me to get drafted to his team. I really appreciate the opportunity and I couldn't wait for our first game. Thanks again Yoshi!  

And there you have it ladies and gentleman.
