I was feeling ok earlier, felt like I was taking control of my care..........now I just feel really strange, like up and down and a bit manic. Does anyone feel manic with BPD?

I'm not sure TOT, it depends what you mean by manic?

Could you explain a bit more? "Strange" and "up and down"....doesn't sound like "mania."

What do you mean by "strange"?

Sorry- sometimes I feel like drunk, but I don't drink or do drugs.....and my thoughts just feel really fast.To be dissociation feels different....I get this quite a bit when stressed. Sorry I should have clarified.

Yes.
I know it's not 'mania' i'm experiencing per se, but I know what you mean about it feeling like you're drunk.
It's like i've had a good few drinks and i'm very merry, my thoughts are fast and I get really dizzy/ditsy.

Err, sorry i've not got much in terms of advice, but wanted you to know that I experience this too and my label was/is BPD.

Yes me too. I have BPD and mostly extreme negative emotions or numb depression, but occasionally I feel really high like I could rule the world, do anything I like. I don't act on it like ppl I've known with BP in a manic phase, and mine never lasts that long..like a couple of hours usually til I 'm burned out physically (my physical health is bad anyway).
