And yes i can relate my mother ,brother,and i all suffer from depression an anxiety in different and alike ways my brother however has the same problem you have he even repeats his words and thoughts aloud its tuff but you should to not to concentrate so hard when your around others
As someone who has struggled with Bipolar Disorder and confusion for years, yet has overcome it, I know how you feel. The link is to my personal blog where I felt like writing about my testimony in this area. Because of that, I came across your questions.
Please read it. I know it can help. :]
Source of my info: myself, medication free for 4 years and only getting better!
Hope you feel better soon! I hope you weaned off your medication slowly; if not, you will experience some side-effects. You might want to try adding just a teeny bit of what you were taking. By all means, contact your doctor. It sounds like something is amiss and needs to be corrected.
I think everyone who is manic-depressive has racing voices (their own?) in their head. It is just part of the very quick movement of your mind and sometimes we need to teach ourselves to slow it down: meditation, exercise, talking, gardening, praying. Slowing down when in a hypo-manic state is not at all easy!
I am sending you this note because I read a post back in 2008 that you started and I have never heard anyone else describe what I've been doing since I was 14 or 15... And I'm curious as to what your docs told you and how they explained the narrating in your head. I hope you have found some help :/
As long as I can remember, it's like I'm in a movie... I am aware that the voices in my head (which are usually my voice) but at the same time it's other people talking. Talking about what I'm doing, talking about my past, just talking about me--negative and positive. How crazy does that sound, right? I've never told ANYONE.
But I have finally made the decision to tell a therapist tomorrow. Does this sounds like what you're going through? Currently on treatment for anxiety/depression...

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sorry to see that you are down & hope you feel better soon. I am doing really well at the moment - am doing my lows by taking vitex and the highs by stepping back and breathing.....how are you?
Thanks for your suggestion - yeah it is really good to know that I need to be reminded of the lows so that I don't get carried away by the highs!

thank you for the kind words i see the doc on the 23rd and the nuse comes every day think i was on a high for a few weeks lol now i cant go out as im angry at everything tis sight is great coz everyone knows what u are talking about xthank you
Hang in there. Christmas, retail, inlaws, doctors, drugs, (new drugs). Glad you have some informed help. Sounds like you are doing are superb job of keeping up with life despite mood shifts. I have many years with BP and some things will always remain a mystery. Be in touch if I can help, Ann
Hang on in there, it does get better and easier and once you get a medication regime and learn some skills you will be amazed how normal you can feel most days.
Hope you start getting a better handle on your new diagnosis. It's going to take time to come to terms with it. If you need to talk, send me a message.
Just a quick note to say hi! I am in America, Ithaca, NY. I have done some research you might be helped by. I am Grrranny here, and the new info I have is in my Journal entry. Read it, it may help you. Good luck, dear.
