Mania- A Christian Perspective

Bipolar affects Christians, too. Here’s an excerpt from one account of a Christian dealing with the manic phase of bipolar disorders:

“For me, mania, has always presented a very different problem between God and me than the state of depression. While depression makes me feel abandoned by God, mania has always made me feel like I didn’t need God. The grandiose feeling that mania brings, tricks us into believing we are capable, even better at, controlling our lives than God is and that others may need God but we are doing just fine without Him. Even if we do believe that we need Him, we often feel His expectations are suffocating and tedious.”
