Is it just me, or a sign of something bigger yet to come


Recommended Posts

I have been relatively stable for about 3 months.  I do run high but not too high.  I dont think I run high. 

 I suddenly have the most amazing vision.  I can see everything in amazing detail.  Even the leaves on the trees.  I can watch them swaying and they just seem so alive. Everything is vivid.  Everything is ultra focused and made of a millions tiny pieces of color.  I dont have the best eyesight so it's really nice to see like this.

Is this a precursor of an episode of some sort?   Never experienced this before.  During a depressive episode I will experience absolutely horrid smells, never anything to do with my sight.

I would like to ignore this but sorta am worried.   Just looking to see if anyone else experiences this and if so was it part of a mood episode or just a one off weirdo thing?

Reminds me of when I first wore corrective contacts for distance vision.  Lol

also, my eyesight seems to change almost on a day to day basis sometimes and if it's not psychosomatic then maybe it has to do with the nutritional value of the food I am eating at the time.

id advise you to watch for other changes and keep a close eye on it- no pun intended.

I definitely see things much more vividly, brighter, more colourful, sharper when I'm starting to become manic. For me it is an early warning sign.

Be careful. This could be the start of a new mood episode

Idk the answer to your questions but wondered a few things:

Is this a vision in your head that if you close your eyes you can see, or is this a vision where you see it in front of you?  Do you see this image often?

Also, FWIW ... this happened to me when I got new glasses ... everything, and I mean everything, was exactly like you described ... like experiencing this distinct colors and detail to everything.  Didn't know if that was something you could relate to.

I agree though with others that when I am manic, even hypo, everything is distinct in my environment ... like I am hyper-focused on things and can see them better.

I did get new glasses about 2 months ago.  I typically have no depth perspective.  That is what I think I am experiencing.  Maybe I didn't notice initially.

I have prisms in both eyes to better align my vision  ( its really complicated, I have an eye that really could care less about seeing, so my other eye takes over) the prisms were adjusted this time.   Maybe thats it.   I would like it to be that.

Vision that I see in front of me.  The most striking difference is far.  I did get new glasses a few months ago.  Maybe that is it.

Do you think this could be a precursor to a migraine or something similar?

Also, when I smell only this one smell (for me it is metal) my neuro has me do an EEG to rule out seizure activity.

^ In bold! I've had three aura migraines in my life, and they all transformed my vision- colors were brighter, little zappy things appeared, and people's faces were twisted and turned. This typically lasted about an hour and was followed by the worst migraines I've ever had. But, if you've never had migraines or auras, then I would be on the lookout for an episode of some sort.

      Hi,
      Have any of you had or have read of gabapentin being of use as an adjunctive therapy for people with treatment resistant depression/anxiety/bipolar?
      I have been doing research and some sources say it helps, others say there is no strong clinical proof. I think a lot of the conflicting reports I have seen has to do with it simply not being studied en mass.
      Any advice/experiences regarding this? If so, what was your dosing?
      Thank you!

      I need some energy, some motivation, some good manic voodoo. Why cant i have that without losing my damn fool mind.?
      Hasnt anyone looked at that? Why must I be either lazy and lethargic or 90mph? Im always tired, always fatigued. I need to know how to get my mojo going WITHOUT my kookoo taging along every time. I cant believe nobody has studied this.

      This is a long shot, but I figure I can't be the only one who has ever had this thought. Is there a way to induce a state that includes the productivity/happiness of mania - without all the extra bullshit? 😅
      Mania is better than any drug, the euphoria is incomparable. Every time I skip a few days of sleep, feel an increase in energy, or anything that might be the beginning of an episode, I think - ''Please let this be the onset of the best feeling in the world. I can't do this shit anymore''. I feel so guilty admitting to that, because I know that being manic and being functional are generally not compatible. I also don't ever want to end up in hospital again, because that never fails to be a de-humanizing experience.
      I have not had any symptoms of mania since my last hospital admission, three whole years ago. It was the first and only manic episode that I've ever had, and it lasted for about three months. I feel like I could have avoided hospital completely if I had experienced mania without the accompanying psychosis. If I could just achieve that level of elation without:
      rapid speech word-salad delusional beliefs dangerously impulsive acts (e.g. jumping out of a car on the highway because the sky looked beautiful and I wanted a loser look) I look back on those ugly symptoms and I could never cope with them now. I go to college full-time, I work, and I have so much to lose if I lost the ability to communicate with others and behave safely. On the other hand - my life just feels so damn gray and stagnant; I miss feeling invincible.
