Re: Impulse Control Problems
Yes, impulse control, usually in a kind of mania, is part of it.
I think you need to get on meds, go back to your doctor and ask for a weight-neutral med. There are some out there.
Otherwise, perhaps you need to limit your contact with people, esp. in social situations, right now. You can learn to govern these impulses - DBT seems to work very well for that.
If it helps, I find that if I remain mindful of what I am saying and slooow down, pause before I speak and remain mostly quiet, it helps a lot.
I hope you have a good therapist to help you on the bipolar and the ED. I have both, too, so I can understand you concerns about the weight.
That's my IMHO - I hope I haven't given too much "advice."
