Hello members. One of my main problems is that the bipolar disorder must be pushing me to talk too much and to not listen to other people because of my racing thoughts. When I am in a situation where I need to talk with other people I ended talking more than I need and do not listen to other people. This makes me feel bad about myself because I can't control my behaviors.
For years I have been trying to control such behaviors (talking too much and not listen to other people ) but without success. about 2 weeks ago my doctor said that I had a great probability of being with a bipolar disorder.
I would like to know if some members here can relate to this situation and what they do to cope with it.

yes, I do relate. I live perpetually in the worst case of verbal diarrhea. I feel like there is so much inside of me that I just have to get out. I journal but it's not the same... I want to share my "inner crap" with others for some perverse reason???? It's like I feel like if I get it out, I won't drown in it, which I have a tendency to do - so there you go - there is my perverse reason - it is to save myself from psychologically drowning. My stuff feels so urgent and other normal people don't have that sense of urgency. It was only in 2005 this became the case. Before that I was a listener. And it is not surprising I had a whole lot more people in my life. The people in my life has now reduced to 0. So that gives me some idea of how important it is get this verbal diarrhea under control.
