For me, mania is the worst part of living with bipolar disorder.It turns out Weetabix makes a cheaper own-brand version for Asda and TescoFor anyone who isn't aware of what bipolar disorder is, it's a condition that affects your moods, meaning they can swing from one extreme to another.
However, unlike typical mood swings, each extreme episode of bipolar disorder can last several weeks (or even longer), and some people may not experience a 'normal' mood very often.I was diagnosed with the bipolar disorder type 1 a couple of years ago. Type 1 means I have more 'manic' or 'hypomanic' (a lesser version of mania) episodes than I do depressive episodes.
Symptoms of mania can include feeling elated, having lots of energy, ambitious plans Scotch & Soda black Summer dress and Down Jackets ideas. Many people spend large amounts of money on things they generally can't afford or really want.You don't eat much or sleep much, you talk very quickly and become very irritable.You may feel on top of the world, as though you have super powers, and you become incredibly creative and motivated.But you may also experience symptoms of psychosis, where you see or hear things that aren't there, or become paranoid, convinced of things that are simply not true.According to my psychiatrist, I have been going through a manic Calvin Klein grey Handbag period for a few weeks now.
I hadn't realised, because I'd been feeling mixed emotions - random feelings of guilt and angst among the highs - I thought perhaps it was all in my head - but it made sense when he confirmed it.And now that I know I am manic, I'm fearful.
