There are some friends I talk to. But it helps to hear here of people struggling with the same issue because I feel it is more difficult for me than for some of my friends who are celibate and happy with it, without so much struggle as far as I can tell.

I have been on meds that have kept my Bipolar mostly stable the last four years. But there are times (like now) that I just get so hyper-sexual it drives me nuts. When I was married it wasn't so bad. Heck my wife loved it!

But living single it can make for bad decissions. And I hate 'meaningless sex for sexes sake' flings. I almost have to feel like I'm sharing and not just taking.

I am 60 now and my meds seem to keep me from being in hyper sex mode. It is a great relief. It used to rule my life.

Although I knew about this symptom, I think that it is good that this thread is here.

For me now, It is mostly the crude things I think about women that disturb me. I feel so terrible, and often have the "what is wrong with me?" periods. Also, my very worst episode resulted in a DUI because I got pulled over on my way to a "massage parlor". I knew it was wrong, and that I shouldn't do it, but it was like I wasn't the one making the decisions. The impulsive behavior associated with this pretty nearly ruined my life.

At the time, I was only being treated for major depression (the pdoc said that I masked my mania so well, she changed my diagnosis without telling me). When I am un-medicated, It comes back in some form or another. By far one of the worst symptoms of mania.

I'm sure it's been mentioned but there is a group dealing with this.

Yep...that was me...I would troll for hours in bars looking for action...I would walk up to women and just say" want to F***". I was surprised how many said yes.

At times I love it and at times hate it. It's ruined a relationship or two but then again they were already in trouble (domestic violence/him cheating/etc) and I would say F*** it and give in to someone who had been showing me some extra attention at wrk or whatever the case maybe but I did know the person. Not sure if it was the H-S or just being impulsive in general. But it's never been to the point where I'm trolling thank God. But now that I'm single after 11 yrs. H-S fits and makes dating very interesting! Lol
