Bipolar Insecurities: Am I Obnoxious?

The symptoms of bipolar disorder, like hypomania, can make you feel insecure. Let me give you an example of a bipolar insecurity that I live with.

The symptoms of bipolar 2 disorder, like hypomania, can make you feel insecure. Let me give you an example of a bipolar insecurity that I live with and why I sometimes ask myself: "Am I obnoxious?"

Bipolar Insecurities Can Lead to Self-Doubt

When I go out with my friends, I feel excited and energetic which prompts me to be very engaging and social. Although people's reaction to our conversations is usually great, I still feel insecure and question my behavior after.

This is common for those of us with bipolar disorder as I have seen many comments about this self-doubt. It has been engrained in our heads that these types of feelings are a sign of bad behavior. In this video, I acknowledge these unnecessary insecurities that are rooted in our fear of living a vibrant life.

Do you have experience with this sort of bipolar insecurity or uncertainty? Do you feel like when you are making people laugh or are very social, you may be spiraling out control? Please share your thoughts by commenting or do a response video and send it into info@ healthyplace.com. Thanks!

Thank you for this video. I feel this way daily. After work, after socializing even sometimes after texting people. I constantly question myself and worry I acted inappropriately or unprofessionally or was too loud or outgoing. It causes my anxiety to sky rocket daily. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this and it seems to be more common. I'm lucky to have friends that I can ask for reasurrance sometimes when I need it, but sometimes even then I have Thoughts that maybe they are only "being nice" and not being honest. Even though I know that's not how they are. Anyway, thank you for sharing again.
