How do you deal with mania and impulsivness? Can you recognize your own mania?
I don't always recognize my manic-ness for what it is until after the fact. Does anybody have this issue, where later, they look back on a situation and feel their behavior was completely inappropriate, or felt too hyper, or too sensitive. Looked back and saw hysteria go to pure joy in moments? Anybody go shopping and grab grab grab. i have no money, this is impulsive. oh well, it makes me feel good kind of moments? What do you do to fix it? I have been in mental health facilities 3x. 2 times as a minor. All times with a diagnosis in bipolar type 2. For the last couple of years, i have refused to seek treatment. For the most part i do ok. i work full time and im a single mom. but then i recognize mania, slowly realize i am on a crash course to hell. I do not wish to go to therapy. i do not like psyche meds. What can i do to control my symptoms?
