BIPOLAR MANIA: Come Ride With Me!

Mental Health Humor cartoon comic Bipolar Mania image

Bipolar? Yes, you say… Then this Mental Health Humor cartoon just might ring a bell with you.  As many of us know, “mania varies in intensity, from mild mania (known as hypomania) to full-blown mania with psychotic features including hallucinations and delusions.”

I’ve never asked for my friends or family to come ride with me on my manic journeys.  But, if I did, I’m sure it would look something like this cartoon simply titled: Mania.  I love the fact that the main character is oblivious to the wave of destruction he is leaving in his manic wake.  My favorite part is the poor guy hanging to the tracks for dear life in the distance.

What about you, what is your  ride like?
