Default Re: I think i'm bi-polar

Manic episodes can fit what you are describing Harrie. One can feel both extremely happy and hyper at the same time as feeling desparatly upset and alone.

An example of one of the episodes that convinced my counsellor that I'm bi polar is this. I was so hyper that I couldn't stop talking. I talked very quickly and often about completely random topics like why the sky is blue. I burst into song at random intervals (walking to town, on the bus, round school, in class) I almost got on a train to London and then caught a flight to a random country.I felt as if everyone was watching me. My opinion of myself was inflated so much that I thought everyone wanted to be me and wanted me sexually. This is completely out of whack with my "normal" self.
