  1. so sorry.. the message below was meant for the film “UpDown” which is excellent

  2. I really felt validated to hear others talk about manic depression. I am and my mom was. I usually sit at hypomanic– almost never depressed, but perilously close to full mania. I was troubled in this film, not for the lack of experts, but by how often people ascribed manic depression to moods. MD is not about moods, at least not for me, its about states. there are highs and lows that are on a continuum of controlled to psychotic. It is not about happy or sad– at least not for me. Its about functionality. I have times when I am functional and times when Im not. For me, functionality can be high or low when I am above “baseline” or below. Suicidality (as my psychiatrist calls it) can also be above or below.”baseline” The notion of “mood” does not adequatelty encompass something that I sometimes can’t control. I am afraid I am being self-indulgent and I am sorry for that but it feels great to be in such a forum that I can be safe.. Cheers!

  3. i give it an 6, just wish they would had experts chime in on it.

  4. We never know what people feel on the inside 🙁

  5. He was driving on the wrong side of the road…(trolling off) Of course this story is sad, but what about the signs and his decision? We are all guilty.
