Love sex vedio - Dating someone who has bipolar disorder

It seems to me that simply by the virtue of extreme emotional experience, people with bipolar disorder think in the extreme quite frequently. If our boyfriend looks at another girl he must be cheating.Everything feels like the end of the world (catastrophizing). If we have a disagreement with a friend they must hate us.

Dealing with bipolar thoughts is a full-time gig and an exhausting one at that. Because if we don’t moderate our own thoughts and deal with them appropriately, we can’t hope to have healthy relationships with others.

And if that happens then all those pesky catastrophes we worried needlessly about will have come true.

I don’t have the two thought processes in my one brain to compare.

This is not to say that we all think the same way; nevertheless, I do have some ideas on how people with bipolar disorder think that seem to stand out amongst the “normals.” Your average person may have obsessive thoughts, now and then, I don’t know, but what I do know is that people with bipolar disorder have obsessive thoughts a lot of the time.

It’s not that we don’t necessarily understand these things aren’t reasonable; it’s just that we can’t help the way our brain thinks, the way it leaps.

People with bipolar disorder have higher rates of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and regardless as to whether you have ADHD, people with bipolar disorder tend to think in ADHD-type ways. I’m sure this frustrates the people around us to no end, but I have to say, it frustrates me considerably more.

People with bipolar disorder are constantly trying to figure out what a “normal” and “reasonable” thought process and reaction would be in any given situation.

These obsessive bipolar thoughts may be a repeating song from the radio, scenarios (such as a suicide scene) or a replaying of events (often negative ones), but obsessive thoughts seem to be the rule rather than the exception.
