I'm Back! How Is Everyone?

John McManamy Health Guide
  • Just a quick note to report that I am back from three weeks off the grid. Each morning found me waking up in a tent to the sounds (and silences) of nature in her full majesty, blissfully devoid of any assist from the increasingly irrelevant members of my fellow species. The splendid exception was four days of waking up in the forest primeval to didgeridoos and drumming.


    My trip took me through the Sierras, Mt Lassen, Mt Shasta, the Oregon coast and inland, and back into California into the sacred precincts of the giant redwoods. John Muir said it all:


    Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

    The insights I gained from my trip will no doubt inform my future posts. In the meantime, in anticipation of being three weeks off the grid, I pre-loaded six posts, including three pieces on the ADD-bipolar connection and three Questions of the Week. The list:


    The Bipolar-ADD/ADHD Connection, Part I - Paying Attention to Attention


    The Bipolar-ADD/ADHD Connection, Part II - Lack of Impulse Control or Hypomania?


    The Bipolar-ADD/ADHD Connection, Part III - Lack of Focus or Depression or Fatigue?


    Summer Reading - The Bipolar Question of the Week


    Happy Endings - The Bipolar Question of the Week


    The Meaning of Home: The Bipolar Question of the Week


    I look forward to “going live” very soon and picking up where we left off. In the meantime, I encourage you to post comments to my pre-loaded posts. I’m back among my people here at HealthCentral. So how have things been going with you?
