I'm sorry if this seems too long or like I'm giving out my life story. I'm just curious.
I've had Bipolar Disorder for awhile now. My medication doesn't work at all. When I get into a manic episode, I don't slow down at all. I keep screaming/bouncing/shaking. I more commonly have anger manic, the fights that are caused thrugh this can go on for hours. After my fiance has his alone time during these fights, he's a lot more calm than I am and he's ready to sort things out. Usually I'm still shouting or fidgeting or just ignoring him. But by the time he can finish whispering "Come to Daddy for a snuggle," in my ear, I'm already curled up in his lap even though I wanted to get as far away as possible a few minutes ago.
Another example is when I'm feeling stressed and I put a diaper on or have my pacifier in my mouth, I don't feel so stressed anymore. Does anyone get anything like this, or am I just imagining it?
