Default Re: Addicted to hypo mania

I spoke to my Therapist today.... I eventually told her about what's been going on. Took about 40 mins to tell her but I came out and told her I'm off my meds and I'm enjoying the buzz. We had a great talk but feel I shouldn't have told her. I'm not feeling like it was a bad decision for her to be let in. Now I'm stressing about next week's session. I'm in 2 minds to tell someone else. I feel like such a loser for not even making it to 200 days on my meds since my last non compliance. Why am I an idiot re med taking. I think I genuinely do enjoy these periods of hypo mania and that I'm truly in the best place I have been in years

Good for you to tell your therapist, even though it wasn't easy! Telling her is good self-care!

Hypomania is intoxicating and at times enjoyable. You are not the only one who has felt that. For me, getting intoxicated with the hypomania is one of the toughest things about my bipolar disorder.

Hoping you can be kind to yourself...
