Hypomania is a mood state characterized by persistent and pervasive elevated or irritable mood, and thoughts and behaviors that are consistent with such a mood state. It is distinguished from mania by the absence of psychotic symptoms and by its lower degree of impact on functioning.
From April 1st until late summer I suffer from hypomania. I haven't been officially diagnosed, but from working in the human service field for 20 years I know that I am afflicted.
Paper pusher heal thy self.
Anyhow, in my simmering state of mania my plate has been full. In addition to banging out "The Odyssey" series of blog posts I took my annual trip to Gulf Shores Alabama to visit my mother-in-law for Mother's Day, took my son Matt to a sox game, watched my god daughter make her First Communion, worked on my lawn, played in some golf tournaments, started my golf league, threw Peter his third birthday party etc...
Instead of me writing about all of this just check out the pics. A picture paints 1000 words!
