Do You Remember What You Did When Manic?

I have done some pretty outlandish and bizarre stuff when manic that I sometimes only recall six months later. How about you?

A lot of the times it just feels like coming out of a stupor and having to apologise for things I don't fully remember.

I get the stupor feeling too....but are there things you forget entirely and only recall piece meal, months later?

I generally don't remember, not even later. Just snippets and some of that comes from being told what I did. Memory gets doubly messed up when psychosis is involved.

I remember little bits here and there where I can sort of start to piece things together later...it’s uncomfortable to say the least...

I wonder if that's a difference between mania and psychosis? Because I remember very clearly what happened when I was psychotic . ..

my full-blown mania implies very poor memory... to the point that I don't know what day of the year it is...

I think when I am manic, I remember some things. But since my mind is going so fast I say messed up things and forget I even said it esspecially if it's too high my mania, anger and giddiness are dangerous together. If I've been drinking definitely don't remember the embarrassment unless someone else recalls what I did. Then shame, apologies, no responses, feel stupid, rejected, hated, then depressed for a while.
