Well, you were right about bipolar disorder! Stick to your guns. I may be unipolar but I do know about bipolars, and am acquainted pretty well with a number of people dealing with it, none of whom is dangerous. Not even in high manias. They’re a little nuts, but not dangerous, except maybe to their own bank accounts.

Mixing wine with hedge trimming, lawn mowing, etc, definitely not a good plan.

Going anywhere outdoors that you don’t have to go in 117 degree weather is a bad plan too, especially if you’re prone to heat injury of any kind (that includes prostration/stroke, and sunburn)! I’d knock that down to the upper 90s even, for such persons. IF you have to be out; take a hat, a large umbrella, and LOTS of water, as well as some salty food. The umbrella will provide some shaded area for respite. Being a redhead and desert dweller, for many years, I’ve learned some tricks.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
