Bipolar Disorder: Helping Someone During a Manic Episode

How to Help
“You may feel frustrated around a person with bipolar disorder who is having a manic episode. The high energy level can be tiring or even frightening. The person may also actually enjoy the mania and may not take medicines, which can prolong the episode. Also, the person may say and do unusual or hurtful things. You can help during a manic episode by doing the following:

Spend time with the person, depending on his or her level of energy and how well you can keep up. People who are manic often feel isolated from other people. Spending even short periods of time with them helps them feel less isolated. If the person has a lot of energy, walk together, which allows the person to keep on the move but share your company.

Answer questions honestly. But do not argue or debate with a person during a manic episode. Avoid intense conversation.

Don’t take any comments personally. During periods of high energy, a person often says and does things that he or she would not usually say or do, including focusing on negative aspects of others. If needed, stay away from the person and avoid arguments.

Avoid subjecting the person to a lot of activity and stimulation. It is best to keep surroundings as quiet as possible.

Allow the person to sleep whenever possible. During periods of high energy, sleeping is difficult and short naps may be taken throughout the day. Sometimes the person feels rested after only 2 to 3 hours of sleep.”




When To Hug Someone: Life’s Greatest Mystery






You Monsters Are People.

Knowing when to hug someone is a question that has plagued humanity since its very inception. Confounded cave-people deduced how to trap and eat their monkey brethren right away but would have to wait thousands of years before even the most basic hugging etiquette could be established. Misplaced hugs have torn apart families, ruined lives and even caused wars (probably World War I). Despite thousands of years of struggling with hug protocol, scientists have yet to unlock its deepest most powerful mysteries.

There was a period in my life where I had friends and then hugged them until we were all so tired from embracing that we had to take lengthy naps. They were like platonic orgies. It was a perfect world where everything made sense and nobody felt bad about themselves or each other. We drank, talked and warmly embraced each other deep into the morning hours. Through perseverance and…

(500) Days Of Summer(500) Days Of Summer

1. Make a playlist of every single song that reminds you of this person. Songs from that band that you introduced them to and became their new favorites. Old jazz songs that they sang when filling the silence of an awkward pause in conversation. Favorite country songs that they played on that long car ride back to your hometown when you were switching iPods back and forth.

2. Replay the last conversation you had in your mind over and over and over and over again. Analyze it from every angle. Tell as many friends as you can to keep finding new ways to interpret what was meant by “if I was still in town, I know it would have worked out.”

3. Keep old clothing of theirs and wear it to bed on nights when you feel especially lonely. Who cares if you feel kinda creepy…

3 Awesome Benefits To Loving Someone Who Is Your Opposite







Thought Catalog

There is a science to loading the dishwasher, and unfortunately, there are various approaches to this complicated operation. In fact, this seemingly simple task is one of the most common causes for couples to fight, so take careful note as you watch them clean up the supper dishes before you commit to anything serious. The good news is, being eternally bound to someone who is the opposite of you, in more ways than loading the dishwasher, is not necessarily something to shy away from, as it can be the groundwork for a wonderful, meaningful relationship.

1. You will challenge each other.

When your significant other asks you to join in on a favorite hobby, which you thought was an activity you would never attempt because it belonged only to him or her, it may seem like an impossible and daunting task. However, going outside of your comfort zone to experience…

Somewhere Out There, Someone Regrets Letting You Go

So true!

Thought Catalog

I bet that’s the one thing you’ve never considered.

That somewhere, someone is kicking themselves for letting you go. For never having had a chance. For never mustering the courage to tell you that they liked you, too. We live in a world where there are too many missed attempts and chances never taken to not be someone’s “should have.”

I am not telling you this so that you scroll through your roster of Facebook friends, trying to figure out who it is. Don’t search through all the one-named listings in your phone of people whose numbers you got at bars but never called. Trying to narrow down Missed Connections to find one that matches your description is time you could spend doing literally anything else. There is little to gain in the knowledge that somebody out there wishes they had the balls to simply say “hi” to you.

But having that…
