Well,.. I'm well versed in disorder and psychology as need be,. by the way,.. type I bipolar here, never medicated, music, psychology, and philosophy and I actually do quite amazingly in my life. I try different things, but for those who haven't really tried, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) it's definitely worth a shot, though I've moved on,... for people that say it's uncurable,.. sure,. I guess,.. but most certainly managable,.. quite a gift rather. Type II's a bit of a different story but remember here I am, stable, no meds, diagnosed 6 years ago and it's very real for me. Anyways,.. the real question I have here is this:
There's definitively been made in the psychological community a correlation between mental disorder and substance abuse and addiction problems (obviously,.. obsessive are we much? ) including sexual addictions. I'd like to hear from people here,.. and be honest guys,.. about bipolar tendencies towards either true bisexuality or generalized sexual indentification problems in general. In my experience we're certainly highly sexual, and I've gone through the loop myself determining the truth to my sexuality,.. which apparently (as complicated as it gets) is a stable bisexual with an emotional preference of the heterosexual variety. Why I mention it is because I certainly went through alot along the way in determining this identity and I'm wondering how much of it was due to the disorder. How many people have had similar problems,... remember,.. every human being actually goes through the dilemna themselves be it conscious or unconscious but would you agree that we're more conscious of it? (and long winded as well lolcats)
I'd be amazed if anyone here said they were completely definitely on one side of the spectrum or the other. We blur reality every day of our lives.
