    First off, what RL is describing is NOT bipolar disorder, and should not be treated as such. Bipolar episodes last days to months, not hours. He doesn't need lithium right now, he needs his moodiness smoothed.



    The deal with masturbation is that it regulates various neurotransmitters. Immediately following the orgasm, prolactin is released, which brings dopamine and testosterone levels back to normal. Extended periods without an orgasm have been shown to create moodiness because these hormones are not regulated.


    I would do the research to back up my claims, but I sadly don't have the time.

    My dear Gabriel, I have been where you are and it is torturous, but leaving the forum will not help. You are not dragging anyone else down, though I know that's your sincere perception. I remember feeling at times as if I were some kind of black hole. This is very distorted thinking. You support others on this forum all the time, in and out of depression. My guess is you do so as well irl. You are not a danger to anyone but yourself.

    Heck, I don't know--I'm not a guy--but maybe masturbating would help. I often get hypersexual during manias, so it might provide some relief. but I really believe you need to get some professional help, and sooner rather than later. From your description of your feelings, you sound very bipolar, though I'll reiterate I'm not a mental healthcare professional.

    I know you feel you should and will always be alone, but this, too, is distorted thinking. Isolating yourself actually exacerbates depression. Please, my dear friend, see a real professional and whatever you do, don't leave us all here without you.

    A manic episode consists of at least 3 of : Increased goal activity or physical restlessness [nope], unusual talkativeness; rapid speech [maybe], flight of idea; or impression thereof [no], decreased need for sleep [maybe], inflated self-esteem [I really wish, but no], distractbility [yes], excessive involvement in pleasurable activities with negative consequences [no].

    as far as I can tell, he doesn't have manic episodes, so, no, this isn't Bipolar.

    Also, it might be worth while to split the psychology to another thread. yes?
