Think: "You think you can, You think you can, You think you can" & one day say: "You thought you could, You said you could, You knew you could" & thus, at least: you thought you did.




Oh my God, please help.
I cannot stop thinking.
I cannot stop talking.
I cannot stop typing.
I cannot stop writing.
I cannot turn off my mind.
I cannot turn down the volume.
I cannot sit still.
I cannot express what I feel.
I feel so agitated.
I feel so misunderstood.
I feel SO ignored.
Will someone please, please listen? Maybe I could just calm down if someone listened to me. I’m trying to express myself. Is anyone listening?
I’m writing.
I’m writing on the computer.
I’m writing on charts.
I’m writing on stickers.
I’m writing on Facebook.
I’m writing on Mommy forums.
I’m writing on the walls.
I’m writing in my prayer journal.
I’m writing on my hand.
I’m writing on labels.
I’m writing in baby books.
I’m writing on Post-its.
I’m writing on my front door.
I’m writing on my blog.
I’m writing signs.
I’m writing on to-do lists.
I’m literally writing on my husband.
It’s a compulsion. I’m obsessed.
I’m not a gangsta rapper and I cannot speak Spanish without using –ar verbs.

Double Talk Quote: Me to Amor while reviewing his shift’s feeding information on the phone app: “So Brooksies ate 14 oz last night?” “um, what?” Amor replied. “It says here he ate 3 times: 4oz, 2oz, and 3oz” “And that makes 14 how?” he said.

Comments on: "Hypergraphia" (9)

  1. Please email me at so I can give you some info./advice that was given to me about how to stop the hypergraphia/mania…by an expert: Dr. Alice Weaver Flaherty, author of “The Midnight Disease” – hang in there! Xo


  2. Reblogged this on Birth of a New Brain and commented:
    I’ve been there, done that with the exception of not having had twins…but I tandem breastfed my newborn and toddler while experiencing postpartum mania and hypergraphia! I was lucky enough to get pro bono medical advice from the brilliant Dr. Alice Weaver Flaherty, author of “The Midnight Disease” and who knew what hypergraphia was like. To this day I’m amazed that I took care of myself by tracking her down and convincing her assistant to have her call me…all while I was manic.

  5. I can relate to this! I get on that hypomanic high and start writing and yikes, hang on tight, there are words coming out on the paper! Most of the time it’s trash, but every once in a while, there’s something I can mine for my fiction or blog. (For me, that’s preferable to the can’t-stop-thinking episodes.) Hang in there! Congrats on the twins. 🙂


  6. […] all at the same time. I was mostly manic after the birth of the twins (perhaps with a touch of Hypergraphia) and just had to document it all so I’d never forget. I decided to blog rather than simply […]


  7. […] rules of this award, I will briefly mention how my blog got started:  I was manic with a touch of Hypergraphia.  I was just weeks postpartum from having twins and I needed, I mean really, really needed to […]
