  1. When I started dating my now fiancee, I had a police officer friend run a full background check on him. I confessed this to him and he was furious at the invasion of privacy! Luckily, we worked it out. I understand the paranoia that comes with meeting new people though.
  2. I'm currently in my longest lasting state of stability, 6 months, and I absolutely have off days. I make sure to communicate truthfully and in detail with my Dr. and she says it's normal. BP is a finicky bitch.
  3. I was curious, does anyone here ever feel ashamed after a mild manic episode? When I first felt the onset (onslaught) of BP, my mania ran unchecked and I did a great many awful things that I have spent years learning to forgive myself for. So I understand that sort of shame. However, last night I had a very mild manic episode in which I behaved in a way that was uncharacteristic for me, but didn't do or say anything that I feel was innapropriate or damaging. Yet when I came down, I felt ashamed and embarrased. I'm wondering if this is purely chemical or maybe an issue for my therapist to weigh in on. Has anyone else had this problem?
