Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello there, I am not sure that not having the best judgment is always a sign of bi-polar. What other symptoms of bi-polar do you have?
I easily get depressed.There are times I'm hyper.One of the guys I fell in love with was lazy and had a criminal record.He seemed dangerous as well.
One of the guys I also fell in love with had a job which was undesirable.He worked at a cemetery.
Hello there, when you fell in love with your boyfriend where you manic or hyper? People with bi-polar disorder appear more impulsive when they are in the manic stage.
Can you tell me why do you think you get involved with the type of man you do? Are you maybe overly empathetic? What about your relationship with your father? How was that?
I was usually in a manic state when I fell in love with those guys and acted impulsively.I was deemed in a psychotic state when I fell in love with those guys which warranted involuntary psychiatric confinements for me during those times that I was in love. I'm in the Philippines, and as long as someone seemed to be in a psychotic state, he/she can get involuntarily confined in a psychiatric ward by family members and the psychiatrist even if he/she is not a danger to self or others. Also,I heard that the diagnosis of a mental illness based on symptoms depends upon the culture of the patient and/or the psychiatrist.Is this true?
