I didn't know rage was part of mania. I ignored my bi-polar even though I was sure I was and had a diagnosis. I thought I could handle it and anyway, the psych had said it wasn't extreme. I remember now going out during my 'dancing years' and going from euphoria to rage in 2 seconds. All it took was someone bumping me too often while I was dancing, stealing my chair, spilling my drink, or a snide comment. I hated myself for being so uncool afterwards when I calmed down. Other times I would find this sort of thing amusing or just deal with it in an adult way. I couldn't work out why these 'emotional hijackings' kept happening even though I knew better than to react like that. Alright PTSD played a part but wasn't the whole story. Many of us just think of euphoria and grandiose ideas when we think of mania, why isn't there more info about the irritability and anger?
