MICRO MILLIONS $$$$$ - Bring out the nasties!

By: Raine56 @ 23:53 (EDT) / 236 / Comment ( 1 )
Played so many tourneys they're coming out of my ears. Missed the one I'd qualified for - fell asleep!!! Those of you that follow me (I don't think it's many) will know that I have bipolar disorder and COPD and am not getting any younger right so why on earth am I punishing myself like this?
The Bipolar and other mental health issues (OCD for one) means that whatever I do I do it to the max and beyond...I don't know HOW to pace myself. Nothing works, I can't sleep, can't eat and am just totally absorbed in whatever my current interest is. Then I frazzle and fry myself (burnout), sleep around the clock for several days and get sooo depressed.
Played an MTT tonight - oh a couple of hours ago and a guy sat on my left kept needling me with barbed comments until (having been the table's chip leader until then), I burst into tears over my PC and threw the lot in with a mediocre (at best) hand cos I'd just about had enough of him.
Why do some players feel that they have to sink to these levels to play their game? They seem to become inhuman - or maybe they're like that all the time.
Was he jealous cos I was doing well, is it cos I'm female? I don't know but I won't let this put me off MTTs altogether but they are a strain for me anyway...would just like to get near to the top in one once and then I'd be happy and go back to my SNGs where I'm much more at home (within my comfort zone).
