Hiya folks, not been on for ages, have been sorting out other stuff to boring to go into.

Anyway i have only been manic once, so im not sure if im feeling ok or not.

The last time to start with i felt really happy and confident, fancied buying lots of new clothes and getting my hair restyled. V horny, and fancying people all over the shop. then a bit into it i started having crap thoughts like that people were dead, or that i was going to harm people or veven kill people. (thats when i got taken to hospital). sorry to type that it sounds like i am an evil witch and i promise i am not.

Anyway have just had my thyroid removed and since then have been feeling a bit strange. Havin g some bad thought ref hurting my uhusband whom i love dearly. also feeling really sexed up and mad for it (which i can tell you is def not like me) fed up of boring things like housework want to do more with my days.

While i realise this is not mania, should i be talking to anyone about this, i dont know if this is something or i am over reacting. im just frightened. i was manic feb/mar last time. is it too soon to have another episode.

Sorry to be so ignorant of this illness, just learning x

i don't think it's too soon to have another episode. you could cycle fast you know.
i'd say if you are having thoughts of hurting/killing someone then you should go talk to someone and get that ironed out you know.,
good luck

i don't know how it is where you live but round here we have this thing at the mental health center that i go to called partial hospitalization.
it's like a 'ward' that you can stay at. get to see a doc every day and there are nurses on staff. you can go outside and smoke and wear street clothes and all that. you're allowed a cell phone. it's like hospital lite...

maybe something like that would be good for you. just go in and talk to someone for a day or two and just decompress you know.

good luck

Do you have the crisis teams telephone number? They might be able to offer some advice.
