I have only been diagnosed with bipolar since November 8, 2008. I am 48 years old and have been married since I was 18. I think I was having hypomania since last April when I became involved with 2 other men that I know well. Then last month I had a short fling with a stranger. I feel so guilty, so messed up about this behavior. I have a great psychologist, and 2 counselors who know about this behavior. One is an addiction counselor who says this is normal when clean from drugs, my counselor says it is not acceptable. I wonder if I am totally Bipolar I, as I have been diagnosed, or if the addiction is the problem.
