Ok Flyboy…… let me see if I can tell you like my Aunt told me without confusing my self again.

According to my Uncles doctor, Bipolar and manic depression can run together. Some of the symptoms are similar (according to my Aunts interoperation). My Uncle has (what the doctor call) Bipolar 1 – which means he has some of the hallucinations and he experience highs and lows (or has mixed episodes).

Doctors are now using manic depression and bipolar interchangeable with each other b/c sometimes they experience both. From my understanding “bipolar” it’s self is divided into many sub categories depending on symptoms.


* Now all of this is just my Aunts take on conversations that she had with my Uncles doctor and the information that she came upon herself*

So to answer your question Flyboy, I (personally) would say yes they are the same in some ways. I hope that helped, I don’t know if I’m more confused now or less for trying to explain it. But I hope that helped.

No. Personally, I usually eat processed sour milk for breakfast. Some eat corn-flakes with milk. When someone eats porridge for breakfast, it's usually oatmeal, not rice.

Waffles for breakfast just seems strange to me, and in Sweden they're not usually eaten with maple syrup, either. Waffles go with jam and whipped cream, but not in the morning.

I can't really imagine pickled herring as breakfast, either.

I can give you a hint: whenever something says it's a *insert nationality*-an breakfast etc., it's often not.

That's especially true for for example sauces or spice mixtures from Asia etc. Some very common "Indian" stuff here is actually unheard of there...

Also, nobody eats pickled herring for breakfast. At least in Finland (so sure, it might not exactly be Scandinavia (is it? I've always been uncertain of that), but still, it's pretty similar). Also maple suryp is very rare here. And I've not heard of anyone eating waffles for breakfast, let alone with maple suryp. And raisins and apples in porridge??

Geographically, Scandinavia is the peninsula formed by Norway, Sweden and a part of northern Finland. However, the term is usually used culturally to describe Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Looking in Wikipedia, I note that the Swedish article agrees with what I just wrote, while the English article is a lot more vague and likes to include all the Nordic Countries. (But then it goes on in more detail.)

Thanks guys!!! I really think the rice porridge was a good idea but it really didn't look like a staple type of breakfast to me. OF course what do I know, when I actually cook breakfast it winds up as some kind of taco!

My head hurts. But, I have a Nintendo DS lite (bought today) and Brain Training!

Wonder if it's somehow connected....

My head hurts too. I know why. Last night I woke up and felt really sick, walked into the bathroom and fainted. As I fell my head hit the side of the bath tub. I hate it when it happens (I think this is the fourth time this year). Waking up on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night is no fun.

I did that once too, when I was living in Bristol. Woke up under the toilet with a sore head and blood on the floor. Lovely. ALthough I may have just fallen asleep standing up rather than fainted, I'm not sure.

Hope you feel better, here just for you

Yes, I've always had low blood pressure. Thanks a million for the roses! If it weren't such a distance between Georgia and Sweden you and I could have sat with tea and cinnamon rolls together tomorrow (you with your hurt knee and I with the bumb on my head) and figuring out who the impostor actually is. Ah well. we'll have to manage that on long distance I guess.

It's snowing a little and it is stormy. A large pine tree in a grove near our house fell over this morning. The temperature is -3 C/ 27 F.
