Tempting to go off medication

I have been watching Black Box, about the Dr who has Bipolar. With the exception of the hyper-sexual part of her manic episode it was like watching myself on TV.  It’s tempting to want to stop taking the medication because I do miss the part of feeling on top of the world. I just have to tell myself it’s not real and the crash that comes after is just not worth it. The medications do make me feel foggy, and sometimes interfere with my muse.  I look at some of my art work that I’ve made while manic and they are very strange. It does tell a story and gives one a peek into a Bipolar mind. So I thought I’d give you all a peek into my artwork on a manic episode. It’s a bit scary, but perhaps it will give you a better picture of what we with mental illness has to go through. Someone said art should disturb the comforted and comfort the disturbed.
