Default Random bouts of bi-polar?

Hello,

My behaviour over the last few months have included episodes every few weeks of where I would fly off the handle for the smallest reason ever. It leads to aggressive, and hurtful behaviour towards people I would never think of acting towards such as my partner and friends.

I've recently upset and annoyed a friend greatly and now i feel immensely guilty. I don't understand why I say those things but I can't seem to stop myself, neither do I think the effect of what I say has on them.

But I know my behaviour needs changing , its affecting my partner and everytime I do become verbally abusive, a few hours later I end up trapped in my head. Where it essentially feels like I cannot escape from these tormenting feelings of guilt, disgrace, failure and most of the time my thoughts wander to self harm though I can never act on them.

Can someone tell me if they've experienced something similar? And if I'm int he right place? I just want some help on my behaviour, I don't want to hurt any more friends with my disgusting behaviour.

Thanks...

Are you on any medications that can cause changes in behaviour? Anti-depressants are known to cause mood changes for example.

How is your immediate environment? Do you have many pressures? Like financial problems, work problems,things like those?

Hi,

thanks for replying.

No I'm not on anything of that sort, I'm a student which comes with exam stress, although recent disputes with my roommates has led to being uncomfortable in the house.

Thanks

Sometimes little things that bother us and are never resolved build up over time. Its a good idea to get them straightened out because the longer they linger in our heads, the more damage they do, until we just lose it one and day and take it out on someone who has no fault in the matter.

I am bipolar II. I am tired of the racing thoughts and indecisiveness.

Hi, I've been exactly the same, the smallest things can set me off to either be angry or upset and I'm taking it out on the people closest to me trying to drive them away even though I love them and don't want them to leave :-/ just feel lonely and like no one understand. I'm new to this site but I hope you are ok x

I'm bipolar 1 and I tend to verge suddenly from extreme suicidal depression to homicidal anger, to sugar rush unfiltered happiness. O.o
I'm off meds now so I scare myself at times, though thankfully I don't get angry often.
Its hard to tell with your situation Bunbun. Hmmm...*scratches head*
Do you have mood swings or drastic changes in thought often? Has this been recently occurring, or has this happened in the past as well?

Nice to meet you lealea, welcome to the site. :D *waves*

I remember having rage attacks (before current medications) where I simply couldn't stop myself from doing stuff, sometimes throwing stuff at the walls.
I'd pace in my room, trying to stop myself, and despite the common sense in my head telling me not to, telling me that I didn't want to.. I just simply couldn't keep myself from screaming and such. I wouldn't have hurt anyone, but still.
When I got like that I just had to warn people around me and say don't hang around right now -

(Sheesh, it sounds like I was Jekyl and Hyde )

It sucks.
I hope you're feeling better and have gotten some support now.
