Hi! This is the first time I have posted on this forum. I have bipolar disorder. I know everyone has a different experience when it comes to this mental disorder, but I was wondering if anyone else experienced this. When manic, I have done and said some terrible things to people. I feel incredibly guilty after the fact and was wondering if anyone else suffered from extreme guilt due to things they have said or done when they felt as though they couldn't control their impulses? For instance, one Christmas I was manic and absolutely ruined my family's day. I was just so horrible to be around. I won't go into what exactly happened, but every year when Christmas comes around I feel tremendously guilty and depressed after that one year. Does anyone else feel this way? If so, how do you get over that guilt? And if you never really do, how do you cope with it?
