    Hello grumpy groupies it has been a long time. I ignored the dx I have not yet been dx by a doctor. Yet I know and so do the few left who know me. It is certain by popular opinion and it is also very embarrasing. bipolar sounds like you a retarded huh. wish another word could define my behavior which is in a sence a dx. Anyway 2 months I had manic attacks horrible ones and I dont remember all of that I did exactly. Public health clinic turned me down. primarily because I am pretty and very normal looking. Well yesterday my husband/boyfriend almost left me. I snapped. He said he was just sitting there. I am not sure if I believe him he had to of don something. Anyway I was at a friends earlier that day. I started crying and I said something is wrong I need help. '"Oh you are alright" He offered a beer I declined dont drink my behavior again., Well I came home and did $9000.00-$10,000.00. I hurt myself as well and hit my boyfriend. Flattened his tires with a knife and broke the 3000.00 television. Now I dont remember all this. He remained upset yet I am fine. I am scared because that is a felony. I already have a DV. I would be in jail and who would take care of my dog and cats.? How can you stop a attack??? Should I go back to the public health center??? I am scared and I dont want to do this again. This happens every year. every year it gets worse. Why do you not remember why you snapped? Do you take medicine.? I tryed deep breaths and calming thing but your mind starts spinning and you cant. God help I am crazy. I belong in a strait jacket and yet I dont even have a diagnosis. I havent looked hard for help. I want to ignore this. I cant this time the damage and physical was bad I hear. No recolection. What the hell causes this manic attack? How do you stop it? Please I need to know have anyone had a similar incident?

    Hi Tiki,

    The best thing for you to do is either admit yourself to a hospital and get proper hooked up with some help there, or get yourself a pdoc immediately and get a proper dx's and then get on medication if that is the appropriate action to take. Also finding a therapist is a good idea so you have someone to tak to about what's going on. Either way you must take responsibility for your actions (as we all must) and find some help straight away before this kind of thing happens again. We unfortunately cannot tell you if you are having a manic attack or not as we are not doctors and only a professional can do that.

    Before anything, a proper dx is essential... Good Luck.

    Try also going to www.NAMI.com as I believe they might also be able to offer you some help.

    Snowy ... oh and welcome back...
