Being manic means several things I suppose. But if u deny hearing the whispers, u will be denying the signs that u r about to become manic. It's like a good angel and a bad one. They r always close by. You fell the stress building as the whispers inform u that u have just been pissed off or something as desturbed ur wave frequency in the way ur calm mind is acting. Don't ignore the whispers they r ur gut saying ur about to .... BLOW!
As bad as things was in the height of my manic outburst I am grateful for my meds. I would give that episode a 3 or 4 out of the horrific 10 I was yrs ago before being diagnosed.
