He would write out the checks for the bills after i had already sent money to those creditors. Creditors enjoyed the double payments but it left us with bad checks when the creditors went to cash them in. Then my husband blamed me for putting the checking account into overdraft, which caused quite the ruckus. For the near future, both of our paychecks went to pay all these overdrafts, which caused financial hardships.
The full-blown maniacs’ actions are rather devastating. Individuals suffering with depression and crazy often become subject to the full-blown mania where they start making unnecessary moves in their business. Their actions yield far more losses than benefits, they themselves are never able to note this.
Sleeping is something that can come very hard during times of mania. One of the main symptoms of mania is that of a racing mind. For me this seems to be more of a problem at night when things start to get quiet. During these nights with no sleep is when I often find myself getting the majority of my homework and creative writing done. The quiet is sometimes good for me, but i find myself needing to have noise of some kind just so my mind will stop wandering.

Is your helping encouraging? All of your “helping” should encourage your adult child to do better and become more independent. It shouldn’t be so controlling that it takes away the incentive for your adult child to try or that it sends the message that he/she is incapable of handling his/her own life. Helping someone to help themselves is the goal. All of us learn best when we are in control of our choices and directly experience the consequences of them.
Use positive visualization as part of your every day life. Picture yourself achieving the goals you want. Picture your life as being better than it is today.
