Ugh where do I start? :| I was manic almost all the time when I was 13-16 and I did too many 'crazy things' to count! XD Drink, drugs, partying too much, way too hypersexual, stealing and generally doing alllll the wrong things.

Spent $1500 in a week on clothes, dinners etc...on my credit card, and I know compared to others this is nothing! But for me it is HUGE! Early twenties (I am 29)hypersexuality bigtime, cheated on boyfriends......That pretty much sums it up!

I hear ya bill....."hugs" get me too. Lol (boyfriends/husband) didn't matter, if I want attention I'll find it, anything to escape. I go into sexual overdrive, I'll try and do everything at once. Shop constantly if I can't focus, if I can I sculpt and/or do as much as I can in school before I crash.

We have a calico cat and I decided she needed more color to her, so I colored her white areas with green, red and orange permanent felt marker.  She was quite colorful.  Actually I have quite a list of crazy things done while  manic.  I seem to get rather way out ideas.  But at least it is "fun" stuff.  Recently I cleaned all our furniture kitchen cabinets with Q-tips....I was very cotent  night ofter night  getting every crvice and crook and cranny clean with a Q-tip.  Went thru 300+ Q-tips.  Now this is the same person when depressed won't clean house for ages and it doesn't faze me.

My manic episodes are short, so I usually don't get into too much trouble.  I average $500 on a spending spree.  Sounds small but usually ALL the money I have, and then some.  Put myself into serious financial problems many, many times.

I walk out into traffic without looking.  Been doing that since I was a kid.  Since I am invincible and all.

I think God is talking to me and telling me to do stuff.  Nothing bad, TG!

I have been known to spontaneously shave my pets.  (I keep fluffy angora rabbits around for this occassion.) 

I have purchased livestock animals (chickens, goat) while living IN A CITY!

I have aquired several dogs while manic.  Unfortunately I am hopelessly optimistic and usually take on a dog that doesn't actually fit my requirements and then I end up rehoming it later.  (4x this year!)

I started school 3x in manic episodes.  And dropped out as soon as I got to the end of the episode and changed over into depression.

Sexual stuff.  For the record everything crazy I did while married I did in the presence of my then-husband.  ;)  And it usually triggered a mixed episode and trying to beat the crap out of somebody.  Never done anything else outside of a relationship.  Now I just harass my poor boyfriend for MORE sex.  NOW!  Please?  LOLOL

Getting violent during mania - especially dysphoric.  Almost never directed at a person, but still scary.

When I lived in the house I owned, I would start projects.  Take out a window, tear up a floor, paint.  I repainted everything about once a year with totally new colors.

Start new projects and hobbies.  Like trying to make a pair of high-heels (failed), or articulating skeletons (failed 3x), dissecting things (I get obsessed with anatomy for some weird reason).

Getting involved in volunteering and social things.  I always flake out at the end of the episode.  My last big manic episode, I was volunteering at FIVE places, plus training service dogs, plus running a small business, plus working as a technical writer, plus going to school in a difficult program, plus being a mom, and a super-awesome sexy girlfriend.   I was so busy and I thought I was having fun.  I lived ON THE RUN - no joke.  No time to sleep or eat (not that I would want to anyway!)  But I kept my boyfriend awake all night with grinding my teeth - and the stress triggered the following depressive episode.

Cleaning EVERYTHING.  Staying up almost all night (or all night) scrubbing every little detail of everything.  Feels good.  But I'm pretty sloppy the rest of the time.  When I'm manic, the house has to be not just clean, but staged, all the time.  Complete with relaxing music for ambience, candles and everything.  Little practical things (like a paper napkin holder) drive me nuts.  I'll press and fold cloth napkins when I'm manic because I need everything to be perfectly perfect.  rolleyes  I guess if I have time (because of not sleeping) and energy, why not?!  I could be doing worse things!

Clean, clean, clean and sex, sex, sex! My husband says that I'm insatiable. I have begged him to experiment, then when we did with someone else, threatened to divorce him for doing something with her. I will flirt and kiss any women that gives me attention, which my husband usually doesn't mind. Although, I have never cheated with a man...since we've been married. When we were dating a living in separate states, I would go between men and women all the time. Then, I would come down and tell him about it. He always forgave me though. I will fight, scream, yell, over someone doing something as little as vacuuming the carpet and missing one small something or other. Cleaning is my vice...if you do it, you have to do it PERFECTLY! I will go into a full rage if it is done "half-ass." Spending money we don't have...drinking, drugs, staying up for days at a time, while being completely sober. The exact way it happens almost always varies...but, it's usually the same in the end.

   You know, its funny. Ive noticed that when i am manic, i am bisexual. But when i am normal or depressed, i am straight.   But lindzkaye09 sex and cleaning is my choice also. Drugs and alchol no, gambling no, but give me good old fasioned sex in every shape, variety, and way you can think of. LOL LOL LOL

    Thankfully with my meds i have been able to keep that tiger in its cage, and it hasnt gotten out in two years. However there have been  a few very very very close calls.

If you would like to be an ass, please go somewhere else. Everyone does things differently when they are manic and we were sharing what we do. If you don't like it, don't read about it. This is a place where everyone has a right to express their opinion, but sometimes when you have opinions like this, it's just simply not wanted. Especially that last annoying post.

  Everyone has different things they do while manic. Most involve risk to some degree or another, whether it is sex, playing chicken in traffic, or drugs and alchol, it is a very real part of this desease/disorder.

  I have found that sharing what i have done is very therputic. Getting that big bad monster out into the light, suddenly the big bad monster isnt so big or bad any more. Thats why i share as openly as i do, not to shock people, but because it really does make me feel better and helps me along with my BP

  Now Greenteahero, thank you for sharing, i know it was tough for you to do so. I dont see holy beings in the sky but i definetly have a feeling of being touched by the divine when i am manic. To the point i feel i am industrutable and am protected by god. I also have doen the story idea, written them down and never acted upon them.

  And holysmokes, the OP Carenpoler isnt the type to go for the cheap kicks. Thats not her style. Mania and the destruction/mayhem/creativity that it brings out is very real. And talkign about it should be something we encourage each other to do. Sun Szu in the Art of War said famously "Know your enemy and know yourself and you will allways be victourous."  Knowing what BP canmake us do and understanding its power over each of us gives us a fighting chance of seeing a mania coming on early enough to do something to control/contain it.

I know you're not perfect and neither am I. We all make mistakes and I'm sorry. That's why I love that quote. It makes me realize my faults, along with others and sometimes visa versa...sometimes I just don't realize them in time and my mouth, or in this case fingers, get ahead of me.

holysmokes, i dont think they put lols out there cause they think its funny, they do it because they are trying to get past it and not let it effect them. they know they were in the wrong but also know that in ways they could not control it.
The only person who can make you happy is you. Be your own self and love who you are because each and every one of you are wonderful for who you are

Hmmmm, boring in comparion to the rest of the thread, but I'll chime in with impulsevily shop (hello sneakers and jeans!) and my creativity at work shoots through the roof. And of course the sex drives fires up, but I'm too darn selective to let being the manisfestation of my mania.

Sex, drugs and rock n roll. Yeah, that is mania! And throw in some money that you really do not have to spend on BS.

I clean, clean, clean and 'organize' which really just means moving stuff randomly through my house! I have an extensive collection of giraffes that I keep in a display case that I decorated my whole house with - I was finding my giraffes everywhere! Bathrooms between the towels bedrooms, in the beds (was putting them 'to sleep' in both cases)... one of my extremely hyper manic episodes saw me fastening egg cartons together with twist ties and salvaged paper clips, hoping I could put enough of them together to make homes for poor African people displaced by war and famine! Oh boy, eh? (My family owns a small egg farm so egg cartons are in good supply!!).

Haven't posted in a good while but I saw this post and it caught my attention. I'd have to say I'm usually a school work maniac, my teachers must think I'm insane because I'll start turning two or three chapters of things in a night, its a shame my mania only lasts a few days at most or else school would be real easy. Although I generally can't stand people, I get one track minded and I'm *****y to anyone and everything in my path. Worse thing I've done manic though, was being awake three straight days, and getting the bright idea that my fiancee and I should go get married one afternoon, our relationship was pretty self destructive, I was undiagnosed at the time, but he agreed and now I'm a divorced 21 year old. *sigh* Thank goodness for meds!
