gballsout Posted February 4, 2006 Share Posted February 4, 2006 Does anyone else get this? I mean a rapid disintegration where suddenly sights, sounds and smells get overwhelming and you can't concentrate on anything or recite the alphabet to keep yourself together until some downer med takes effect? I take Seroquel when this happens, but it comes on fast and strong. Once I was on my way to the dr when i got this on the subway platform. I kept trying to hold myself together, but there was just too much overstimulation. suddenly one clear thought came to me: if I push this man in the way of the train, i will feel better. I caught myself and ran (as fast as I could) home and took meds, but it scared the shit out of me. Other times it hasn't been so bad b/c as soon as I think I'm getting overwhelmed, I take the seroquel, no questions asked. But when I read the textbook symptoms of mania, it sounds like a party (spending money, talking too fast and having promiscuious sex) though I don't mean to belittle anyone's problems with these symptoms. BTW, how much sex and sex partners qualify as promiscuous, b/c I wonder if it's different for females over males. I know alot of tomcat males that wouldn't qualify as bipolar/manic or sex addicts. They just like to sleep around and get their conquests up. If you are a single female (in your sexual prime, ha!)and just date alot and haven't found the right relationship, does that make you promiscuous?
