Have any of you every felt disconnect from your family and friends? If so does it last for long periods of time?  I have been feeling disconnect on and off for several months now. Some times it will last for months and then I will be fine for a few weeks.  Any thoughts from anyone?

Hi there Cold Chick. I'm somewhat new to this forum and dealing with my bipolar, so I'm sorry if my advice is not that great, but I can always try. I often feel disconnected from friends and family. I'm not sure if it's because I don't think they understand what's going with me or what. I do the same thing that you're talking about though. I'll be ok with them for a while, then one day I'm not. Has it been like this for you for a while or has it just suddenly began?

It has been like this for 3-4 months.  I will feel very loving to my husband and daughter and then I will want them to leave me alone. I seem to get irritate quick when I am disconnected. I know my husband is leaning about Bipolar but even if you learn what you can I still feel if you do not have you can not completely understand.

Hi cold chick,
 
Sometimes with my moods I just get times where I rather be left alone because I get very irritated.  But I'm not like that all the time.  When it lasts for a long period I let my pdoc & therapist know so that they can help me out.
 
When is the last time you saw your pdoc?  Did you mention this at all because you really should.
 
Do you see a therapist?
 
As far as thinking that no one understands, I think that those very close to you have a really good idea of what it is like for you.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Lindzkaye:  Don't think that your input isn't valuable.  Everyone's input around here IS.  It's wonderful to hear all different perspectives. That is how we learn and what makes this place so great!

I know exactly what you mean! I do the same thing with my husband and children. How do you feel when you're in this mood? I'm usually in a "mixed state" is what my therapist said. When I feel like that I'm usually very energetic and loving and then someone can do or say one thing and I can't stand to be around any of them, they all just make me mad and I feel like none of them have a clue how I'm feeling, then I go to the depression side and usually end up crying for one reason or another. My husband is trying to do the best he can to deal with me, but he's having a very hard time even acknowledging that something could be "mentally" wrong with me. Give your husband some slack though...I've seen just how hard it can be on someone who loves you watching you go through this. All any of us can do is TRY to deal with these things the best we know how. Do you usually have a lot of energy when you're very irritable? Are you very impulsive?

Also Sukay is right, you should let your pdoc know about how you feel as much as possible. The more he/she knows, the better they can help you get things adjusted and hopefully sooner. =-)

Thank you for joining HealingWell Cold Chick,

Let me echo the others in telling your doc everything you're feeling. There's no "normal" with bipolar. I certainly feel disconnected from my family on and off on a daily basis, but there's no rules here. Just tell your doc. It's part of your symptoms.

I have told my doctor and she is sending me to a Psychiatris.  This will be the first time I have seen one and the earliest they could get me in is on the 27th of this month. My meds have been adjusted several times and we have ruled out it is them. Some times I get this way when something is said so a mixed state. Normally I have a high level of energy when I am like this and I just want them to leave me alone and not hit me with questions, what I can do for you, do you still love me, what did I do, etc.  I do not tell my husband anymore so he does not worry.
