There are many different ways in which people experience “Bipolar Mania.” Some of us enjoy it, while others find it to be a very destructive force in not only their lives but those around them.
The way we experience mania is actually the primary factor in diagnosing someone with a specific type of Bipolar Disorder. Countless people end up being misdiagnosed because they fail to see the mania as a problem or they don’t mention it to their doctor. If someone who has Bipolar Disorder is misdiagnosed with general depression, it’s common for them to be prescribed a single antidepressant – without a complimentary “mood stabilizer” medication. Treating ONLY the depression can add ROCKET FUEL to the mania, so it’s extremely important to not overlook this symptom.
When certain types of mania get out of control, it can lead to risky behaviors like reckless spending, sexual promiscuity, an increase in substance abuse, extreme agitation, a complete lack of clarity or grandiose beliefs, and so much more. Also, as many of us know, a manic episode can result in an equally intense period of severe depression (or a “crash”) after the “party is over” so-to-speak.
