Dating a bipolar girlfriend
However, many of us have had life experiences that lead us to conclude there is a definite connection between bipolar and lying. It is the signature line of Dr House on tv, and you can even buy a t-shirt proclaiming “everybody lies”. When several, or all, of these symptoms are combined, the likelihood of lying compounds and amplifies. Wish fulfillment, selfishness, delusion, deceit, egomania, self gratification, escapism – words often used to describe the psychic landscape of the liar are strikingly similar to the experience of bipolar mania.
So in fairness to all of us with bipolar disorder, the issue could be more fairly cast as “do people with bipolar disorder tell EXTRA lies? In my opinion, bipolar and lying go together with bipolar grandiosity, diminished need for sleep, racing thoughts and overall impulsivity and impaired judgment.
It seems to me that simply by the virtue of extreme emotional experience, people with bipolar disorder think in the extreme quite frequently. If our boyfriend looks at another girl he must be cheating.
Everything feels like the end of the world (catastrophizing). If we have a disagreement with a friend they must hate us.
This may be an especially hard issue to struggle with for the Bipolar Christian.
There are many reasons for infidelity within a marriage or other committed and supposedly monogamous relationship. There is no way an outsider can shed light on other issues within your relationship.
Sadly, too few people yet realize bipolar cheating is one of the most typical bipolar symptoms of all.
However, it is a difficult subject for me personally because this was the main way my bipolar symptoms became obvious, and my most serious manic episode manifested.
This is an interesting question: how does a person with bipolar disorder think?
Of course, it’s hard for me to compare it with your average person as I have bipolar disorder.
These obsessive bipolar thoughts may be a repeating song from the radio, scenarios (such as a suicide scene) or a replaying of events (often negative ones), but obsessive thoughts seem to be the rule rather than the exception.
Note that research bears this out indicating that people with bipolar disorder have higher rates of obsessive-compulsive disorder than the average population. And, of course, there are all the thoughts that go along with these things.
