irritableYet, I miss it.  There is something inherently interesting in a springboard of irritably hitting you in the face, and feeling a moment of an inability to control yourself.  Your mind bursts thoughts that physically hit your body.

Irritability goes hand in had with hypo manic people.  When you get medicated for your mania, your irritability level ceases.  Thank God.  But, with that thankful tempering of irritability, you lose something on the other edge of the sword.  Something that is on the other side that has the same fuels of chemicals, the same intensity, the same raw energy that seems outside of the realm of control.

I will continue to write about Bipolar II.  Irritability is one of its true enemies, but, on the flip side, the intensity that causes irritability causes something else inside, worth knowing.
