Manic for 2 weeks now

I've been watching the sun come up everyday for the past 2 weeks.

Yesterday I moved my computer desk and reorganized my office area. I spent one night working on the unreal 4 game engine which is a game design program and engine. I did that for 8 hours straight then quit because the sun was coming up.

I've been getting naps in here and there but for a hour or 2 at most.

I'm seeing the shadows and movement in my house when no one is there because I'm sleep deprived. I like to keep the lights off inside my house to help reduce the shadow movements. Shadows are a bunch of darkness then.

I doubt many can relate since bipolar 2 people are in an abundance and don't have the same experiences or they would be #1.

I get irritated easy and lack patience. A common side effect of being sleep deprived. My family are self employed and apparently I need to be also because I don't get along with management.

Lately I've had a strong desire in wanting to be with chef Ramsey. He seems to be on the go 24/7 and he makes me laugh. Well the look he gets from the people he communicates with makes me laugh. Is his behavior typical of UK men of his age group? I don't usually like that age group or anyone older than 30.

Sleep is critical. I think it is very important for you to try to get more sleep. Are you on any medication?

My wife is biploar 1. Lack of sleep will help trigger her mania. When manic, she exhibits some of the symptoms you describe. Medication and sleep are essential for her to get back to baseline.
