Hey Chris, I hope you're doing slightly better. It's pretty cynical to say "I'm glad you're not dead", but that's the first thing that comes to mind for me.

1. Why did you name your cat "Taco", anyway? I always thought your username was a dirty pun on "pussycat".

2. How would you describe bipolar 2 for yourself?

3. Fuck August. I feel like there was a global debuff on the world cast on the world and no one I know came out of last month better.

1. Tacocat is a palindrome and I thought it was clever even if I didn't think of it. I read it was somewhere.

2. I get depressed as fuck to the point that I can't function. I've also been so wound up I thought I was getting messages from the TV because I'm special or something. The paranoia and hypomania needs a more detailed description than I want to give right now. It's more complicated than depression which most people understand. I've had some pretty intricate delusions. I will also forget to eat food sometimes as a for instance.

3. September was probably worse. I ended up being homeless again for about a week. I also walked like 30+ miles without sleeping for about 40 hours or so while I had pneumonia. But there was a thing in August that makes it a hard call. The relative shittiness of the two
