Lightbulb Can anybody help? Does this sound like bipolar?

Ok, so for as long as i can remember I have talked to myself. When I was younger i would see it more as make believe games, that kids play, and didn't think much of it. However, I'm now leaving high school and I still find myself doing it when I'm alone!
I've always seen myself as different and have never had many friends, usually one best friend, so I assume this begun from loneliness. I would create different scenarios in my head such as being a teacher or a movie star and act them out almost when I was alone. Now it tends to revolve around a 'character' I've made and her life. These 'characters' have always been successful and beautiful, much like the opposite of myself.
If anyone has or does experience anything similar I would love to know, i'd really aprreciate if I got a reply as this has been on my mind for a while now and i'd love to get it sorted.

Peace and Love xo

Re: Can anybody help? Does this sound like bipolar?

While creativity and bipolar often go hand in hand (especially during manic phases) what you describe does not sound typically bipolar (emphais on typically). It sounds like you have a vivid imagination, fantasy life, and are combatting loneliness as you know how. If it really concerns you, please seek help from a counselor or therapist, who can hear all of your symptoms, etc. Good luck!

Re: Can anybody help? Does this sound like bipolar?

Glad you feel better Musicman182. I, too, can get eccentric in ways that have nothing to do with my disorder. I've loved dancing & music all my life. I'm getting to old(?) to find a comfortable place to dance in my town, so I rock out at home. I love doing my pirouettes(sp?) like I'm performing a Rock Ballet. I pretend I'm dancing in a large crowd, etc. Again, I do this when I'm truly symptom free cuz it's so fun! Rock on!
