Throwing things at the slightest inconvenience. I get out of control when I overheat and dump or break things because I can’t find something. Isn’t being manic lovely?

Ah yeah, being manic is not nearly as fun as some people make it out to be. When I am manic, it's so hard to control my rage and how out of control I feel even when I'm writing. None of what I write makes sense.

I am sorry you are going through such a tough time right now

True mania has symptoms such as pressured speech, racing thoughts and other extreme symptoms. I'm not sure if what you just spoke of is mania or you are emotionally hurt/disturbed.

I was diagnosed with manic depressive bipolar disorder when I quit my job and took a buttload of pills when I was 20. I had been experiencing mania for several days. Little to no sleep. I felt like I could do anything. More often than not when I experience feelings like that I know I’m going to crash down and go into a spiral. It sucks but that’s my life.

Anger is a part of bipolar, sadly. Not everyone gets it, but it is a symptom.

My memory goes out the door when I’m manic. Your brain wants to go a mile a minute 24/7 and it’s hard to shut out the intrusive thoughts. Most of the time I can just turn it of. Forced dissociation if you will 😅

I really need to. It’s so hard to ride the high of being functional until you run out of steam. I can’t stand the crash/lows. I hope you’re talking to someone about what you’re going through

Not yet because my doctor wouldn't listen to me, but I am pretty certain I have it because several members of my family do and I show a lot of signs. I am hoping to see a doctor about it asap

Yeah I know, but I show a lot of signs of it. I definitely have some sort of mood disorder that needs to be checked before it gets bad again
