... cope with being bipolar when it's bad. what are some helpful suggestions for when I get really agitated... sometimes I feel like I can't calm down once the mania starts and I'll go from calm to screaming at the top of my lungs in less than 5 seconds it seems. I start to feel that it's unfair to my fiance(who gets the brunt of these episodes) and my family and then me. I just don't have anyone who is bipolar to talk to about this kind of stuff I will be going to a local support group starting monday, Frankly at this point i'm looking for anything...
