Default Re: Bipolar 101 -- Answers to basic questions

I'm having trouble figuring out what I'm experiencing. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety and ADHD and bipolar disorder and I've been experiencing frequent delusions. My question is, is it psychosis?

I get panicky and hold beliefs like I have mind reading abilities and I'm possessed by someone else and I feel like I'm getting lost in my own head, like I'm losing touch with reality and I get scared I won't come back. It's not only the beliefs because I act on them I even tried some make believe version of witchcraft. I also get very confused and disoriented to the point where I start to panic and scream. My mom told my doctor it was an axis th attack and I've had multiple anxiety attacks and they never feel so out of touch like these do.

I've also been experiencing depersonalization for almost 3 weeks and it's like I can't get control over my mind and I'm stuck outside of it, the best way to explain it is like when u smoke pot but its not uplifting I just can't think and I can't get a hold of myself.

Could someone please answer this for me (if possible)?

Has anyone ever thought you had taken drugs because of your hypomania or mania?
I haven't been diagnosed with anything but think I should go and see someone, as if people think that about me then surely there must be a chemical imbalance somewhere as I suffer with depression also.

Thanks. Peace.

Yes many times. My friends have asked if I have taken something. The last time was a couple days ago when my friend was visiting me and she said I seem like I'm on drugs.

Also my nurse asked me several times if I have a history of drug use, like amphetamine.

But no, I have never done drugs.

Here is a handy little scale that may help some people who struggle to pinpoint exactly what they might be feeling.

Bipolar 101 -- Answers to basic questions

One thing that gets to me though, how can you differentiate between number 4 and number 3? Because I know that some people call number 4 depression...

The same with number 6...how does that sound much different to number 7?

In my opinion being sad and being happy are a part of normal life. For me number 5 is not being very happy, but not sad either. 6 is "normal" happy, not in a hypomanic way. Just happy, like after getting some good news or when having a good day.

For me number 4 is just sad, like we all are sad sometimes. It isn't too bad or affective to be called depression. It's something like a bad day or when ugly weather makes you feel a bit down.

I have been accused of being on drugs as well with my mania and hyper-mania. Some people have also thought i may have had another mental illness making me act like that

How can you tell the difference between bipolar and DID? I had a manic episode and someone in the hospital said they can be hard to tell the difference sometimes. I would be confident in my bipolar diagnosis, but I blacked out during mania (I was sober) for idk how long and idk what I did. Makes me think I might have DID as well.

Hey I'm bipolar II and If you're diagnosed, it'll take a moment to take it in, and it might be rough at first. You might also be put on meds depending on the severity of mania and depression. With the help of therapy and medication, you should be okay!
Just for reference, Im taking: morning: lithium(150mg)+abilify(2mg)
dinner: lithium(300mg) night: seroquel(25mg)
I take lithium for impulse and mood, abilify for depression and mania, and then seroquel to help me sleep.
Good luck to both !!
