I just thought I'd start this thread so people can share those moments when they were impulsive. I thought it would be helpful to write down when impulsive so that we become more aware of our tendencies to do so when manic or hypomanic. So what have you done impulsively lately?
Saw a few people mention this on the "what have you done that's impulsive lately" thread and thought I start a new thread on it. I have struggled with impulsive eating, since around the same time my bipolar symptoms started, generally in the afternoon/evening. I go through phases of different food cravings, some sweet, some savoury. I had always just put it down to "comfort eating" but now I'm wondering if other people struggle with this and link it to their bipolar? I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts
I just thought I'd start this thread so people can share those moments when they are being a bit on the crazy acting side. I thought it would be helpful to write down when we are having our crazy moments so that we become more aware of our tendencies to do so. So what has been the craziest thing you've done lately?
I make stupid choices and decisions. At least I realize that AFTER I do it and the guilt sets in. But the initial desire to do something crazy, something taboo, something spontaneous is such an adrenaline rush for me. I know it's probably part of my BPD but I'm wondering why I find it so appealing to do dumb shit. I suppose it's just the feeling I get from thinking about doing it that thrills me--anticipation. Is it a desire to feel something? Because it's so extreme, is it just one time in life where I get SOME sort of emotional stimulation and that's why I like it? Just thinking out loud...
