i have only recently started experiencing what i believe to be full blown mania. i had an experience on Thursday that makes me wonder whether i should be worried. basically there was a situation where i found myself bleeding profusely and i mean i literally bled, in the operators words, more than a mugful of blood before i allowed the guy i was with at the time to call an ambulance. despite bleeding more than i had ever done so in my life i was perfectly assured that i would be fine and i think that my calm attitude convinced him that i would be fine as i managed to convince him not to call an ambulance for nearly an hour. it took until i collapsed nearly unconscious onto the floor vomiting that i would let him call for an ambulance. i had recovered from the faintness not long after and by the time the paramedics got there i was up and cleaning the blood up off the floor! in the ambulance i was as calm and happy as could be, making jokes with the paramedics!
