Bipolar Disorder

I have a family history (males) of bipolar disorder. I had two manic episodes that I was involuntarily committed for. The best I can figure is that I was not treating my EDS and had learned to function in a semi-permanent state of shock to cope with the pain. Lesson learned, treat, don’t cope. I’m working on finding a neurologist, cardiologist, pain doctor so that I don’t miss sleep due to pain and trigger mania that way. I’m guessing this is just one form of a female autistic meltdown. I was feeling pretty good for two weeks before I guess I lost it and being committed was some of the worst trauma I’ve been through in my life.
