I have much more trouble with mania's and hypo's than depressives.
 
Does anyone else have this problem?

I used to be crazy, but now I have enough money to be called eccentric.

oh for sure. i get horribly irritable with my family members. i scream and throw tantrums. i break things (usually cell phones), punch and kick holes in the walls... all because someone said something to me at the wrong moment. i fly off the handle in a second. it's really bad.

when i'm depressed i just sit in my room and think about how terrible i am haha.

well, my mania's which caused my room at the inn stay. involved a brain overload. My thoughts would keep speeding up until I was unable to write or speak a complete sentence. Would do math and chemical equations in my head over and over. Thought I was brilliant (which I am definitely not). Thought everything I did was so important I could not be bothered with things like a job, food,or relationships and such. Caused me to become non-functioning.

And we have a similarity with cell phones. I always have to buy the insurance now.

i get that way a little. the racing thoughts is becoming more of a problem. i'll try to verbalize something i'm thinking but i can't because i feel like it's too complex to put into words. i think too much. it makes me too quiet.

when I was untreated or on SSRIs my mania was pretty bad. as a teen before I was treated for anything I destroyed a wall at my dad's house. my dad and I would fight...a lot...he'd get physical sometimes...enter PTSD...and obviously being a teen and somewhat respectful I couldn't hit him back plus I didn't want to set him off even more so the wall became my punching bag. it started out as frustration from my home life, but then any time I would be upset about anything my fist of even foot would go to the wall. I'm horribly ashamed by it. my dad never got it fixed so there's a big plastic sheet with duck tape on the wall to keep the plaster from falling all over the place.

just so you guys know, while the physical abuse lasted from about age 8-18 it stopped once I moved out. before this I watched him and my mom have severe physical fights from birth to age 6. years have passed and things have gotten way better between us...after a near death experience for him he even apologized for things. some people don't understand how I can be so close to him now, but it all started out disfunctional...basically him making me feel I had no one, but him...surprisingly though things changed and now it's actually true. I don't know how to explain it. I still have horrible PTSD because of it. I thought once things cleared up and once he apologized I'd be over it, but I still have nightmares, if someone around me has a temper I'm afraid they'll come after me, etc. As a young child, maybe 3 or 4, I would have nightmares that my dad was the incredible hulk...you know, the green guy. my dad had the crazy green blood shot eyes when he would flip. to this day I still can't watch that show. the movies aren't so bad since it's more fake, but the old tv show...that guy Lou Ferrigno...even without make up gives me the chills.

I'm hypo a good portion of the time. I had a few days of depression last week but that passed really quickly. Before that it was probably years that I wasn't depressed but constantly running high.

The good hypo I don't get fussed up about (like it in fact) the bad mean faced hypo is pretty hard to take.

yeah...that's how I get with the bad mania. I have...well what I consider "good" mania too. the kind of mania that helps you get stuff done, that makes your more social, makes you feel on top of the world. unfortunately I've learned that also leads to bad stuff so even though I kind of like the feeling I tell my pdoc ASAP. lately I've been dealing with more downs than ups so we'll see what happens.
