    Anger in Bipolar Disorder
    An_241706 posted:
    I understand that when people talk about the symptoms and types of bipolar disorder they focus on the manic and depressive moods. Where do the angry moods fall into?

    Well, I can tell you I am a horrible rapid cycling bipolar.I did not have anger I had RAGE. Before I was diagnosed I punched people, stuck 4 inch heel into someone. A Hell's Angel kept touching my hair and I pulled out a scalpel and shredded the seat on his Harley, when he came close I cut his neck with the scalpel. I was driving down the highway in my sports car and this guy pulled right in front of me, I mean inches. I slammed on my brakes and we almost had a pile up, He flipped me the bird I followed him down to the court , waited for him to go inside and I took my scalpel and shredded all 4 of his tires of his Mercedes and cut all the paint on the car. I knew the minute I felt adrenalin, it was going to be bad. It's interesting, because the only people I go after are bullies. I saw a woman smacking a puppy in the face and I beat the living crap out of her. Another afternoon I decided to go riding so I brought my horse out to put his saddle on and this horrible woman was slamming things against the horse's head. I also beat the living crap out of her her. Everyone asks the same thing, how can a woman do
    this ? When you have a horse, you have to muck stalls, pitch huge bales of hay, jump with no saddle, you get very strong.

    Everyone wonders how a super fashionista,, top exec at the third largest medical company in the world has hidden this.

    Why do I tell people this all these years later, because we have a mysterious disorder, very insidious. I am now being treated for a severe anxiety disorder. My body is covered from head to toe in huge bloody sores caused by severe anxiety.

    No matter what else I do in my life, I will help other bipolars before they destroy their lives. If I ever feel even a twinge of the bad adrenalin I will call my Doc
