happened to me in Recovery,..
I had manic episodes.
This never happened when I was ill. I had no mania. I was not diagnosed with Bipolar or anything similar.
My doctors did not even go there.
They thought about other illnesses, but there was no mania.
I was a depressed person, lethargic, needing to be prompted.
So this happens in Recovery,..
I know this happened in public, and I feel so ashamed.
The new energy I had during Recovery had nowhere to go, and I could not manage it at the beginning.
I can manage it now.
I am able to burn it off when it occurs.
I know the signs, I am aware of the triggers.
But I was caught out at the start.
I wish this had not happened.
I want to stop feeling ashamed, but it is difficult.
