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?
