Does Bipolar Disorder Make Me Psychic?

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Cyndi posted an interesting question on our Bipolar Blog.

Cyndi asks…

Okay, here goes. A strange thought accompanies me from time to time in my bipolar walk. What if I really am psychic? I have read many blogs and articles that state there is some sort of connection to psychic energy from a bipolar, manic mind. This may be more a highly-sensitive phenomenon as I am not sure how to distinguish mania-driven imagery from highly sensitive tendencies to “read” people and their thoughts. I could swear I know what people are thinking much of the time. Or is this something all of us (bipolar or not) think we’re capable of? Does it have universal application? It’s a weird kind of thing to consider because so much of the literature on mania-fueled energy involves references to our “knowing” what others think but in actuality it is a manifestation to “think” we know, when we couldn’t possibly.
