Anyone else get hungry when manic..
I am not talking about having an uncontrollable binge for food pleasure, I think we have all done that.
I am talking rip roaring hunger. I am a fast cycler, every three days
actually, you can set your watch to it. When I am in my manic phase,
I will suddenly get super hungry, and normal eating paterns will not help
at all. I will have supper, then an hour later I am ready for supper again
and IF I don't eat it, I will often get sick to my stomach.
This goes away when the manic does, but I noticed it comes and goes in
various degrees, sometimes it's controlable and other times not.
This is really hard, because I am trying to lose weight, and have been doing great, lost 70 lbs so far, but this trips me up, its agony. I am a firm believer that it was my bipolar hungers that got me in weight trouble in the first place.
The lith helps allot with this, but as everyone knows, its only a mask, the problem doesn't go away it only deadens it a bit, kind of like novacane.
Do you get extra hungry when you go Manic? How do you handle it?
YOu would think being super energized would burn off the extra calories, it doesn't..
