Patient discussion about comprehension

Q. What you guys understand from this? I am diagnosed with bipolar type, which is more extreme than bipolar type II. I know about my symptoms but I'm looking for individual experiences. I have interest in painting, numerology, stamp collection, gardening etc... When, I am manic, I just switch from one area of interest to another and completely lose interest in the previous area of interest. What you guys understand from this? I know that each person's experience will differ and I like to hear about your behavior….

A. It is common for people with bipolar disorder to have a short attention span during a manic episode. You have too much to do and too little time to do it in. Your mind will race and your thoughts will be all over the place and often cant complete on scentence before moving on to the next... your behaviours will manifest in the same ways. What you are discribing here are some of the symptoms of a manic episode.
Are you currently being treated for bipolar disorder? If you are and you are still experiencing manic episodes it would be advisable to make an appointment with your doctor so you can make him/her aware of the symptoms you are still experiencing.

Q. My boyfriend understands me when i suffer from bipolar Hi friends, I was diagnosed with Rapid-Cycling Bipolar a year ago. Right now I am looking for some urgent and true support. That’s why I am here in iMedix. I can't really talk to a lot of people about my disorder. The only people that seem to understand me are people who have mental illness. I only have my boyfriend who tries to understand and a friend who is schitzo affective and I really don’t see him much. It would be great to have you people to talk with me. When I was diagnosed I became a kind of antisocial. So Hello everyone, pls help me!

A. Welcome Olivia, pull up a chair and feel free to share whatever is on your mind, ask any question you want to... the people here are open and caring and helpful.
I am a believer that no one can truly fully understand anoter persons sufferings foe everyone is different, with different triggers and life circumstances. All that another can do is offer some of their experiences and thoughts with you. You may find some helpful and others not so much. Try to keep in mind that although not one can truly understand you and everything you are going through they are trying. You have the opportunity to teach the people around you about your illness and how it affects you. express your feelings and your thoughts and triggers etc... give the people around you the opportunity to learn and help you when you need it.
