Re: Boredom the Bipolar Curse of the gifted
I've started this habit of staying up until 3:00 a.m. I think everything is more interesting at night. I get bored too, and started to pretend that mundane things were exciting, now I get excited all the time. I can even make myself believe that my pitiful, mediocre life is full of promising brilliant prospects every day. This is so much better than being bored and depressed and I love my almost constant hypomania. Of course, I generally don't tell people my fantasy, just include them in my life of daring possibilities. Use your gift of imagination to help yourself be as happy as possible. My friends love me when I'm like this. I started this new sort of mantra about my life of hyper activity during the day after I wake up, and daydreams that spark my creativity at night.
