I am having a bad day today.  I think I am manic and can't talk to my husband about it, he works long hours and 6 days a week.  My skin is tingling and I am obsessed with looking up religion topics on line.  I do not know what to do.  A month ago I was so depressed that I was suicidal now I am getting off the wall.  I can use some advise on how to control this feeling, but is there any real advise to give.  It feels good to just tell someone who will understand. 

happy bill

Are you on any meds at all? Im on one and i can up it if i feel a major mania coming on or is going on.

Yea, major manias are no fun, they wear you out emotionally and physically and are just plane awefull.
For me its a few days till im feeling ok again.
But we are hear to talk to. Post more and we will talk about it.

For me, when I get manic, this is just my advice not professional or anything, I usually have to get my meds changed and drastically.
I find for me manic is more dangerous than depressed because I can end up doing strange things, even dangerous things.

So I suggest you see your dr. or at least call him and ask him what you need to change. Just my opinion though. Hope that helps a bit.

Take care of yourself.

I hope you are doing better today.  In my support group we were taught that we had to slow things down when we were manic. I'll try to explain this....To do calming activites, like trying to go for a walk or spending time in nature, spend time with pets, have an outing (no shopping) with a friend...go to a movie, read a book (that one is hard with racing thoughts)....You mentioned maybe going to church...Hope this all makes sense.

Also, as others have said, meds need to be considered...Doc needs to be contacted at this point.

Take care...

Hi Magggie, when I was manic I was obsessed with religion to an alarming degree. I am not saying not to pray or anything or have faith if it helps but just wanted you to know I went way off the deep end wit the religion. When I came "down" it stopped.
You a RN bythe way? I am, not that I work or do anything for 2 years(but keeping my license active just in case I wake up normal one day and get another job).
Take care and good luck
