My wife is going through a manic episode right now. There was one night that was interesting/disturbing to me. When recalling the events, I am slowly realizing that a lot of what happened she may have been faking to see how far she could push me. I was being overly accommodating because I knew both physically and mentally she was suffering. I have never seen that side of her mania before. Is this a fairly common situation with some people who are manic? They purposely fake and instigate to see how far they can push you? Do they do it because they get amusement out of it? Or just curiously seeing what they can get away with?
