Has anyone experienced a manic episode? I was diagnosed by a psychologist for depression and mania (so essentially the two components for Bipolar Disorder), as well as social anxiety. But I went to a psychiatrist who, in my opinion, dismissed the idea that I was bipolar because I didn’t get arrested or in horrible debts. (I went to psychiatrist because I didn’t feel as though I wasn’t improving and that my mental health was a roadblock that couldn’t be moved) So after a while, I conditioned myself to believing that I wasn’t bipolar but that I had depression. Except for the fact that this was around quarantine, where I had limited opportunities to spiral. I think I’m experiencing a manic episode right now, me basically putting a bunch of things to my cart and pressing purchase like a hot button— zero regards for the consequences, not sleeping even with my sleeping medication, not eating a lot (which is very uncharacteristic of me). My other instants mania weren’t as notable or as severe as this one, I believe. I’m asking this because I think I’ll need to press on my doctor a little more to reconsider, but I don’t want to sound/act like a complete tool.
