One Hell of a Ride

This past year has been a wild year. My symptoms progressively got worse as time went on, and after seeking full help for them I walked away with a brand new diagnosis, Schizoaffective Disorder Bipolar sub-type. This new diagnosis gave me some insight as to why treatment for Bipolar disorder alone never really worked and why I seemed to suffer from extreme paranoia and mild to moderate delusions outside of mood episodes.

If you are curious as what exactly Schizoaffective is here is a brief description that is provided by Mental Health America Schizoaffective disorder is characterized by persistent symptoms of psychosis resembling schizophrenia with additional periodic symptoms of mood (or affective) disordersIn relation to my illness this means that while I show the extreme mood episodes that are commonly associated with Bipolar I also present with additional symptoms in between these episodes that are closer to schizophrenia.

Right now the medications that are being used, atypical antipsychotics are pretty much sapping my sex drive. I am going to attempt to get this blog active again. It might take some time and posting may be sporadic but I will be doing my best.

If you are interested I have started a blog that deals with my mental illness, Of Melancholia, Mania and Psychosis. I will be covering not only my mental illness but also tips on how to live with it and decrease symptoms. Some of these entries might even cross posted to here, but for the most part the two blogs will remain separated for the time being.

Pink Cherry Review

Better, more detailed and 100% accurate as to my experience with the company!
First off let me begin by stating that I live in the United States and that Pink Cherry is a Canadian based company. At first I was slightly hesitant to order from them, my main issue was shipping. I was afraid that it would take a long time to receive my package and/or that the free shipping offer was not valid on orders destined to the US. Well my fears were not justified. I have ordered from them a total of three times so far and each time I have received my order within a week. I also was able to receive free shipping on all orders for ordering over a certain amount. But more on all that later.

Adam&Eve Big O Kit of Disappointment

Adam and Eve Big O Kit
I had been seeing the promotion circulating for some time now. One simply had to enter the code DOLL and they received 50% off a single item in their cart, free shipping and also received a free Big O kit. After doing a little digging-not that much mind you- I couldn't find out any details as to what this mystery Big O kit actually contained. I figured that since I was doing an order anyways what the hell it's free. So I clicked the little box's that said send me my free kit which is valued at $29.95 and my other free mystery gift valued at $9.95.

Review: Fun Factory Tiger

Fun Factory Tiger

I am enamored with Fun Factory. Maybe it is because they are a German company (I have thing for Germans and Germany in general) Or maybe it is because of the quality of their products which never disappoint.
