Im not sure if im starting with a problem again. I feel fine but over the last two week ive started spending again. Ive bought stuff for my grandaughter totalling about £80, 2 cds, 3 dvds, a painting easel, 2 smoke alarms, a mp4 player (that i havnt a clue about) but today i realised that ive gone a bit mad and bought a 3/4 carat diamond ring.

There probably is other stuff but i cant remember. I really dont want any more meds and do feel ok. As yet im im not in financial difficulties but i do know ive spent too much

Its no goodsaying hand your cards over cos theres so many other ways of buying now. Last time i re-mortgaged my house:cry:

All right Daffy so we have the beginnings of manic spending and you recognize it. I haven't done this for a long time - I refuse all credit cards, loans etc and have my bank notate that so it makes it difficult, if not impossible to get credit. Rent my flat so that's okay. I don't know what to suggest. I don't really know how I stopped spending to be quite honest except that perhaps even though I rapid cycle my bias is towards depression so maybe that makes a difference. i once read a paper that suggested that there's evidence to suggest that irritability and mania makes for irrational spending - do you get irritable before you spend? I don't know how to help sweetie except I'm here for you. :hug:

I know now how to recognise the symptoms and it has helped a lot, and fortunatly i may have recognised it this time b4 it gets out of control again. I know i should phne my SW but ill see how i go over the next couple of days. Fortunatly i have people round on tuesday and wednesday so i should be ok for those. If i buy anything else ill phne up.

hi daffy lets do loosing the plot together - this is great I have a buddy in the same boat

I am waiting for my CPN to call time, then the usual process is I do a runner and get chased by the police or I go to work becasue spookily enough I work in an establishment with its own machine gun armed police guard - there'll be no regular bobbies getting near me - oooorrrr sooooo I think. Got to think this one through make sure the thinking is water tight otherwise I'll end up like a lab rat in a cage

ha ha harrrh

fancy going bananas together - only in cyber space of course

my next hurdle is the CPN is phone calling tommorrow - SHAME I LOST MY VOICE THEN !!!!! ha de ha de ha
