Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Having episodes of impaired judgments, anger, depression, lost memory are common during severe phases. Having temporary delusions is also common, but not a seperate condition. Don't take a delusion incident as necessarily a new diagnosis when it is during a manic-depressive phase. It was like a psychotic episode but not a psychotic disorder caused by your manic depression. I would talk to psychiatrist about medications as you shouldn't have those breaks of that severity if medicated properly.
I understand the difference between psychosis as part of an affective disorder, and a psychotic illness per se. Based upon the information I gave you, I wanted to know if the "brand" psychotic features seemed appropriate in my case.
Sorry taking so long. Site went down and have to start over......
Try 3 here......Was ready to post and my battery died. Not a good day here.
So I'll post in shorter segment.
THe fact you had this during a M/D severe episode points to a manic depressive psychotic incident.
