has bipolar cause you to be hypersexual what did you do to help I only feel it more when I'm manic
Hypoactive sexual desire disorder
i became extremely hyper sexual when it came to experiencing trauma, the only thing that really worked for me was making my own sexuality about me. if i’m feeling a certain way, no one else needs to be involved.
I experienced this early in my diagnose I went to SAA the group sessions there made me realize how reckless and dangerous it was. I can't say it is or works for everyone but foe me it was an eye opener.
yes. nonstop masturbating but also meeting up with random strangers. also getting into dangerous kinky territory that I'm horrified by looking back while non-manic. I think with hypersexuality during mania, I am thinking about it in terms of harm reduction -- how can I satisfy these urges in the safest way possible? I think sex is one of the things easiest on this front-- spending money or getting into agitated yelling matches or thinking the govt is after you..are not things I would be able to navigate minimizing impact. not sure if I am totally off base lol
no your not dead on and yes when I look back at all the reckless stuff I was doing was scary and when I'm not manic I beat myself up for it.
yeah all you can try to do is be safer in the future! i have a lot of sex generally and have gotten better at making sure it's a safe situation so that makes it easier to maintain while manic too i think?
