Sorry for posting so much tongue
 
If you are in a manic state...and you have time where you're alone (ie. a long car drive)...can you comprehend what you are doing or is it not until you start coming out of it that you realize your actions?

Hi Roxy -- I don't understand the question. I guess it depends on the action. What do you mean exactly. Can you understand you're on a long car drive? Can you understand you did something manic-y before the long drive?

Yes....meaning can you realize what your previous actions were when you have time to think about it...or is your head still all over the place?
 
I.E. If you did something again that you always regret once you stabilize, if you have a long period of time to think about it (like a long car drive) will you realize what you have done even if you are not in a stabilized mood?

roxyluvr,
 
When I have my episodes, I am (somewhat) conscious of my actions.  I lose track of time and have racing thoughts but I think there are warning bells ringing going of in my head, and I just ignore them.  But the longer I go without being stable, it gets hard to distinguish what reality is.
The only times I don't remember was when alcohol was involved.  Driving a car was bad for me, I noticed after the fact that I become more aggressive/reckless in that state of mind.

Olivia
