I mean, there are other signs, but none really clearer than waking up going “what the fuck, brain, why would you do that??” It’s hard to tell if, say, I’m having a manic episode or just feeling partcularly motivated. Or if I’m having a depressive episode or if I’m PMSing or have a cold or an allergy attack or ate something that disagreed with me. Feelings can be incredibly confusing, but the dreams get stronger and more vivid and sometimes I’m kicking a lot of ass and telling epic stories and sometimes…sometimes there are spider gumballs.
