Immediately seek the help of another psychiatricist.
If you are aware that your about to be smacked dab in the middle of a manic episode, yet your doctor is clueless get to at least two more and one will have a clue.
I am in a mixed episode right now. I can’t decide which is worse full blown mania( which coincidently can be fun because your filter is skewed) or is the bowels of despair and hopeless abandonment.
God I’ve walked through so much in my illness. I am able to finally see my patterns.
You know you better than anyone, do you have a support system in place? Extremely important to have people who can tell you they see the changes.
Bipolar is a very serious condition that will rob you your life and will go with you to the grave, so care for it, embrace, but mostly manage with kit gloves.
Good Luck, God Speed.
