    I'll bet you meant "self medicate". When someone refers to bi-polars self medicating they mean that they will use alcohol or illegal drugs to attempt to control the highs and lows. These bad habits often happen years before they are diagnosed as bi-polar. So many become alcoholics or drug abusers before any legal medications are prescribed. It is often difficult to keep them taking their bi-polar meds.

    When people self medicate it is usually with illegal drugs like meth. I have a friend whose son was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. He used meth to get rid of the voices in his head. It was awful.

    I know people who self-medicate with over the counter (or prescription) drugs and alcohol. The average person doesn't have the faintest idea of how to get meth. You can get lots of other stuff much easier.

    Apparently, Johnny Carson's, er, johnny was quite impressive. I'm scarred by just knowing that.

    Chris Brown . . .

    Don't want to hear it.

    Being closely related to a bipolar individual, I can tell you that Florimel, Punkin and dagwood have ABSOLUTELY hit the nail on the head, and I'm in agreement with everything they've said.

    Johnny Carson . . .

    Erm . . .

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    I'm not that hard up for entertainment to try to amuse myself with.

    Count me in on giving THIS one a pass.

    Johnny Carson's huge secret - that explains a lot. I always thought he was overly cocky.

    Niiiice.

    I don't believe I could make myself watch that one. I'll pass, too.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.
