Hypomania. Improvised dance to discharge energy. Another One Bites the Dust.



My name is Xanthe Wyse. I changed my name after it became a PTSD trigger. Have done a lot processing to reduce the effect of triggers.

Diagnosed bipolar 1 disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social anxiety disorder. The first 2 are the main diagnoses. When my mood is elevated (hypomania, mania), it overrides my social anxiety disorder.

Improvised dance to music that fits my mood helps discharge some of the energy, as well as process something. This is one of the ways I manage bipolar and help cope with stress. Go a bit high on the music.

Listening to Another One Bites the Dust (Queen). Said out loud some of the lyrics which literally happened to me. I listened to the song several times on repeat.
