Borderline and bipolar disorder

User Profile
i have bipolar disorder and my brain has a hard time staying in reality, sometimes i'll be ok, but i'll notice that at times i'll laugh to myself or talk my problems out loud, it gets pretty overwhelming..at times i talked fast & i can feel my mind racing a mile a min on rare occasions, i have borderline and bipolar disorder & its a living hell almost everyday. i as well have a hard time telling fantasy from reality sometimes i'll watch something 3d like an animated form of outerspace & though its not real i get paranoid & start looking at the sky..then these wut ifs start happening i get syched out & end up really dellusional, its happened watching shows too but in a different way, whats wrong with me..i also get so delusional i look up evidences on google or sumthing to prove that animation or random show wasnt real, i have a hard time, havent been on medicine for awhile and the last therapist ive seen was a dissapointment due to my frustrations trying to explain ;(

Bipolar Disorder Answer A15248
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
Your concern seems to be bipolar disorder presently with symptoms of mania as evident from flight of ideas, racing thoughts, increased psychomotor activity, impaired judgment and paranoid delusions.
Though bipolar disorder is a life long illness but drugs play an important part in controlling the same. You can be helped by mood stabilizers accordingly.The impairment in social adjustment can be helped by behavioral therapy. Multimodal approach to the treatment in your case can help much better than single therapy alone.
You must consult a psychiatrist for proper management of your illness.
Hope this helps. Take care.
