Hi. I recently have been diagnosed with bipolar 1 and my life has changed so much. When I had my first manic episode, I was having delusions. I started texting my friends weird messages and kept changing my Instagram profile and posted then deleted random photos. I even messaged people I haven’t talked to in years. I’m so embarrasse. But, I was deep into a manic episode when everything happened, preventing me from being my true self. How do I let go of what I did? How do I not blame myself?

      Unfortunately society won't accept mental health as excuses for stuff like this but what's important is that you know that those actions weren't actually done by you and they don't define who you are as a person. Your manic self if NOT really you. Just because you do bad things when your manic doesn't mean you are a bad person. It takes time to learn to fully accept that but it gets easier I promise.

      Same thing happened to me, I Shot into psychosis. This mania induced psychosis is a SPLIT from REALITY. Therefore we were not in reality, so we can't really blame ourselves. I literally did the same and I was do embarrassed bc I remember it all... message me if you need 💓
