I starting to think I am manic. Obsessively thinking about one thing. And not being able to let go. Feeling over excited about it. Can’t stop thinking it is tiring me out. I’m tired of thinking.
What are you thinking about, @anon80629714? Getting married? You should be sure your boyfriend is on board with it.
I mean I’m on the verge of tears I’m tired.
I’m pretty sure he is. Or he wouldn’t introduce me to his parents. But my obsession isn’t healthy.
@anon80629714, if you’re on the verge of tears, you’re not manic. You’re probably depressed.
I do get mixed episodes though. I wasn’t on the verge of tears until about 30 mins ago.
Could be I’m on my period so…
Be careful @anon80629714, obsessive thinking can be part of mania.
I get this a lot.
That would certainly explain everything.
Yeah I didn’t realise it was mania until I realised I’ve spent the whole day looking at rings to buy and shopping for bridal wear.
@Don’t feel bad @anon80629714, I’ve done the exact same thing as you in my past. The day after I met the woman of my dreams, I went out to a bridal shop and tried on wedding dresses and veils and shoes and garters all without my girlfriends knowledge. Luckily, I didn’t buy anything. When I told my woman about it she was in shock. We had just met one another.
Right now I’m just obsessed so not sure it is mania or not as I don’t have all the symptoms but I’m exhausted as I can’t stop thinking about it.
Obsessive thinking can be involved in sz/sza/psychosis.
I’m not in psychosis. Im pretty sure of it.
Hypomania and mania can take on different faces.
Irritability, anxiety, euphoria, anger, joy, and obsessive behaviors.
I was just listing it as a possibility.
I’d say euphoria most of the day. Ended up at the shops with my mum and searched bridal wear and spent a lot of the day on the internet looking at rings. Because I might be getting married soon. And it’s not the case. He’s clearly told me.
I know. Thank you. But I don’t think I’m not hallucinations or delusions . Unless I am not aware.
I think this will pass soon but it’s very frustrating.
If your obsessive thinking doesn’t subside then I would contact your pdoc.
