As an adult bipolar (BPD II) at 32 I'm still trying to make sense of odd things from my childhood. I have been able to figure out that a lot of incongruent behaviors as a kid relate to childhood manifestation of BPD: Night terrors, a certain precocious tendency, bouts of mania and depression, generally boilerplate things. But as an early teen I had some interesting derealization/quiet euphoria experiences that don't fit my notions of how Bipolar and I work together. More after the break. [more inside]
