It's me again, the poster of the thread, "A Manic Episode?" Let's say someone has been manic for a few months during which his behavior has been erratic. When that person's behavior becomes even more erratic, is that a sign that he will "crash" soon? Please forgive the expression (if it is offensive let me know), but he is what some would describe as "losing it" even more than before.
This could be a sign of being Bi-polar...you should go in and have that checked out! Manic episodes can really wreck your social life, credit, mind! Life will run so much smoother if you have it checked out, no more wondering if you'll crash or not!

I agree that what goes UP must come DOWN......we do CRASH and then we are depressed. It is the cycle. I wish that I could tell you of some miracle cure but there isn't one. You have to hope this person gets help. Co-Dependency is a term that means you are so busy helping someone else that you forget about helping yourself. I used to be good at that. I learned I am the only person I can help. Good luck.......Kahlia
I have seen many things BUT the most terrible thing I have ever seen was the lack of compassion for another.....................Kahlia
Good questions, polarized. No we're not friends anymore. He wanted to be friends after the breakup. I didn't realize he was manic at the time. I thought he was just being a jerk so I told him I had no interest in a friendship. He was treating me so horribly! We're not getting back together. He got engaged three months after the break up. Long story. It's in my post "A Manic Episode."
I see him about twice a week at church, which is how I can observe that he's losing it. His behavior is getting stranger. He looks at me from a distance and other times he avoids eye contact when we're close up. The other day, he came into the room where I was when he had absolutely no reason to and left a few seconds afterwards.
Kahlia, I'm worried about him, but I'm not trying to take of him by any means. We are barely on a hello/goodbye basis. I do appreciate and agree with what you said about co-dependency though.
