Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste
And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
– Rolling Stones
👉This is going to be a Grandiose article in nature to which started Many decades ago.
This article is expressed in a bare bones matter and may make you scratch your head as I have hidden these symptoms or expressions; and at this point I am too exhausted to continue to do so, so the best thing I beleive for me to do is to share them with you just because.
👉So are you ready to read my story to which may sound unbelievable, but is true?
There are many stages of being Bi Polar and one of them is “Grandiosity”.
Here is a simple definition:
Grandiosity is a symptom experienced by people with bipolar disorder (BD) during manic and hypomanic episodes. People experiencing grandiose delusions often describe larger-than-life feelings of superiority and invulnerability.
Just like one of M. Night Shymalan movies .😀
I never dug into why this was happening as I thought everyone had these thoughts at one time or another until my Doctor looked at me at just blurted out….has anyone ever diagnosed you for being Bi Polar…and you already know the answer; it was a no.
This is where the ball started rolling for my diagnosis and treatment.
I have this somewhat under control now, but the scars of this are evident.
Recently I had a manic episode to where I got the the following Tattoos (amongst others):
🔥TCO: The Chosen One
🔥TSC: The Second Coming
🔥TGJ: The Golden Jew. To be fair I am Jewish and love the movie GoodFellas.
Everyday day comes with its opportunities and I never know when any of the symptoms of being Bi Polar raise their ugly heads, but I do now know how to keep them at bay by playing a game of WHACK A MOLE with them.
🙏I am not ashamed of who I am.
🙏I am not ashamed to share with you my story.
🙏I am not ashamed of my past but would not like to see it repeat itself.
🙏I am who I Y’am.
Have a PHENOMENAL day y’all.
