So what happens when you “relapse” ?

Hey, y’all.  This post is definitely going to be hard to write.  But I’m going to write it, just because it needs to be written.

So I had another manic episode.  I’m not exactly sure what triggered it, but I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital on September 22nd.

I don’t really remember much about what happened, just that I was running around my parents’ neighborhood at midnight and the cops were called, and I basically resisted arrest so hard that they knew it was not a criminal offense, but rather a mental health issue.  I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, then transferred to another hospital where I stayed for 10 days.

Wow.  I didn’t realize how hard it would be to write this.  I think that is all I am going to post for now.  I will write more later, when I can mentally get through it without choking up.

I love you guys.

I love that you read these things and that you keep up with me.



  1. In my mind, you will always be you. Episodes of mania may knock you off kilter and make you feel exposed/ashamed, but your true identity is still intact. You are Genevieve, a warm bright light. I will always like you and love you. ❤

  2. Your are one lucky girl! And thank God that your worried mom (with her mother’s 6th sense) got to ‘the scene’ in the right moment and saved you,…believe me cops don’t always see the difference with someone having a manic episode! Wow…Without that angelic presence by your side you probably would have ended up arrested (or worse?) until they figured things out. Family and those that love you are such a support. Remember you are not doing this alone! Love u! tt

  3. Carry on, sister. You are brave and I’m grateful for your writings. I only met you briefly, but even those few minutes left me feeling like you care so much about people. You got light flowing out of you.
