Dear Merrily, I had a mania spike week before last. At first I always think - wow, I feel great, maybe the new dosage is working. (I am bi-polar.) Suddenly my mind is clear. Like being let out of a stuffy box.

ASK MERRILY/ Memorabolia
Mar 16,2009

Something has gotten into my mother and she is in a frenzy to throw things away, clean out closets. A lot of what she finds used to be mine, or, she thinks, ought to be mine, and so she's always bringing stuff when she comes to visit.

Plenum Dilemma
Feb 17,2009

Dear Merrily, In writing to you about my packing problem, I saw that there are other places in my life where I feel overwhelmed by too many choices. When I feel out of control, I often do nothing. I cannot pull from the plenum (the space completely filled with everything necessary for existence).
