My Story of my Disorder, interesting!

Like the title says btw. Honestly, I think I have gotten a lot of help so far. I also have schizoaffective disorder. So, I have been paranoid or am. I used to think I didn't need any help and then end up having a bunch of episodes. But now, I realized and am more aware of my condition. I would constantly have all these problems and think people were out to get me. That was ...

Bipolar wife, multiple affairs how to prevent in the future?

Hi!

Recently I discovered my wife had an emotional affair. I already noticed she was being hypomanic (BP2) for some weeks now and I felt in my gut something was off. She was very hurtful when talking to and about me and told she wanted to end our relationship because she was never happy with me and that we are incompatible (because I have a mild form of autism).

A month prior she told me ...

Bipolar 2 and TMJ

I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type 2 three years ago and of course the diagnosis helped me to understand myself and know my limitations.
However, beside being living most of my adult life, I am 35, with bipolar I am also living with dreadful tinnitus which started in 2006 before taking any mental health medication and even before I knew that I have a bipolar.
The tinnitus, recently, has made it very hard ...

Upcoming hypomania

My husband says he can see me going hypomanic months in advance but I can't see it. By the time he confronts me about it I'm unable to be reasoned with and dismiss all his concerns. How can I stop this in its tracks? What can my husband say or do to help me get a grip?

Quite obviously bipolar

So. I am back. Starting my new meds today. Aripripazole. Have been taking citalopram for over a year I think. It was sort of helpful against depression but obviously not against hypomania. Starting to come down from the high and feeling exhausted and like a total ###$ up. I'm ruining my life.
I'm someone who gets hypersexual and who is prone to falling in love with people easily. But I am also married with special ...

Psychosis/delusions

Hi,
For a few months earlier this year I was convinced that I was pregnant even though I did several pregnancy tests including blood tests. Even though the odds of me being pregnant was incredibly small considering contraceptives and time of 'conception' in relation to my cycle, I was still terrified that I might be pregnant. This was during a time that I skipped my period for a few months which is not uncommon with ...

Oxytocin hormone

I was just reading about a new research that people with high sex drive/addiction often overproduce oxytocin hormone as a response to fear and anxiety. (any kind of trauma?)
And that anti-psychotics, quetiapine, regulates this oxytocin production.

It does sound like certain anti-psychotics can be used to treat a variety of things. So a response to treatment doesn't necessarily equal a specific diagnosis.

I need company -- I'm lonely at home and depressed all the

I'm lonely, bored and depressed all the time these days. When I go places with a friend I am okay, or if a friend comes to see me, I'm okay. I don't know any bipolar people locally, and none of my friends know that I have this disorder. I have nobody to call for support. My therapist has been out of town for weeks. He's coming back next week and I will try to get ...
