Things only Someone with Bipolar Disorder Would Understand:

Your depressive spells make you forgetful, which is a shame because if you thought about your manic stages it might cheer you up.

You can tell when you had a manic episode by looking at your credit card bill.

Even though you live on your own, it often feels like you’re waking up with a stranger.

You have so many racing thoughts you should be a NASCAR analyst.

You don’t suffer from a sense of superiority – you’re remarkably modest for an emperor of all humanity.

You don’t know the meaning of “psychosomatic,” because you can’t concentrate on reading a word that long.

When you’re down you watch “America’s Most Wanted” and cry out: “Why does nobody want me?”

Friends say you’re the life and soul of the party, but you avoid parties like the plague.

You’ve been told the warranty on your car does not cover existential crisis.

You just realized people can drink beer for fun, not because they’re self-medicating.

You eat fear for breakfast.

Your psychiatrist spends so much time balancing your moods she now has a side job as a professional juggler.

You wonder how someone who feels so empty can put on so much weight.

You can’t sleep at nights, which would be OK if you had more insomniacs for friends.

You’ve cried on the pizza delivery guy’s shoulder.

When you’re manic, nothing makes you angrier than someone suggesting you’re irritable.

You meet the same person at two different parties and have to convince them you’re not your pain-in-the-ass twin brother.

Every morning you wake up thinking, “today is going to be a great day. Just not for me.”

Your cat would describe you as the aloof and needy one.

Manic episodes give you a heightened sex drive, which makes it unfortunate you can’t maintain any relationships.

You remember when Prozac was cool.

Your depressed self probably wouldn’t be so depressed if your manic self didn’t make so many commitments for it to keep.

If you could cycle as quickly as your moods, you’d be the next Lance Armstrong.

Family members have mistaken you for the Incredible Hulk.

If someone is described to you as “moody” you think to yourself: amateur.
