When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...********************

hey cap, rosie, sky.
great to see my old frineds back and to meet a new friend.
cap and i never talked about this before, but when i was MUCH younger, i was exactly like him: i preyed on girls with low self-esteem, who thought they were ugly, etc. it's funny, but i, too, got angry when one of these girls would approach me for more than a one-night-stand. but i was a god and they were thralls and i coulld do with them whatever i wanted whenever i wanted. i, too, got lucky. i found a woman who accepted me, baggage and all, and we've been together about 35 yrs.
sky, i was lucky. back in the 60s the worst thing we could think of was some girl getting pregnant. stds consisted of ailments that were very treatable with pennecylen. today things are much more dangerous. premiscuity today can be fatal. all i'm saying is if bp makes you want sex, then have it but for god's sakes BE CAREFUL!
funny. they call a male like what cap and i were "bon vivants" or "men around town." they call women who display exactly the same behavior by more ugly names. society very often sucks.
i wish yoiu love and luck on you path to discovering just how beautiful, special, and valuable you really are.
Welcome to Healing Well and the members that posted to you were honest and sincere. That is admirable.
Please don't put your self down, I agree the bipolar meds need tweaking if your still having problems with sexual promiscuity. No one here is judigng you.
I also could see the poor self esteem and the combination may be causing the reckless behavior. Please know that this is a common trait in Bipolar patients but there is hope and everyone here is so supportive.
I have suffered from low self esteem so I know that feeling well, I am not bipolar but anxiety/depression is my dx. I have known and worked with people with bipolar so I do have great empathy for how your feeling.
Please be kind to yourself and find a therapist that you can establish a good relationship with to help you.
