hi, i would like to find out more about this disorder, it runs in my family but i have not been diagosed with it yet because I guess you could say i've been in denial, I have a problem with spending and lying, when I have no money to spend its like i almost freak out then comes the lying part . I just need someone that maybe have experienced the same thing I have.

No spamming is posting info about an unrelated product or service - usually the jerks who do this are trying to drive traffic to their gambling or porn sites.

Hi

I'm just new to this forum and I already posted most of this message in a different section - controlling illness. Then I spotted the bipolar section so I am copying most of this over. I'm sure I'll get better at the whole thing in a while. Anyway this might be of some interest in so far as it is just how it affects my life. However, I hate the word "disorder". That presumes that "perfect personalities" exist and that those of us who function in a different way are less than perfect or fail to reach some ideal. People are people - there is no such thing as perfection in my view - it's just that if your mind works in a certain way it is more inconvenient to function in modern society which has very little space for or tolerance of - how would I put it - non-linear behaviour or methods of functioning?

Anyway - this is a copy of my message.

At the minute I recognise that I am suffering from stress and that it is largely self induced. I am "bipolar" according to the text books - and have had two major episodes in ten years which required hospitalisation- that probably isn't that bad but it has a major disruptive effect on my life and is upsetting for my family.

I wouldn't say I don't accept my "illness", but I prefer to reframe it as simply the way that my particular makeup works. I get on with my life and love my work etc. Just at the minute, however, I find myself feeling very stressed and I don't want to push myself into a full blown manic episode - much as I find the experience totally amazing and in some ways really enjoy a "breakdown". It's just the whole palaver with admissions to hospital, physical and mental exhaustion and picking up the pieces afterwards that puts me off. It's a bit of a luxury to have an episode and at the minute I can't afford the time. I have also reverted to being slightly bulimic which again has it's attractions but generally is a complete pain in the ass.

Has anyone any inspirational angles on how to destress? (Not the loo cleaner visualisation exercise please!) Part of me just wants to let it run, even if it ends up in an admission.

All the best.
