Bi-polar disorder with acute mania accompanied by grandiose behavior syndrome
3/8/2013 8:03:17 AM
My expertise is in the study of psychology majoring in Bi-polar disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. Both are the most difficult to treat and success rate is low for this particular extension of Bi-polar.
As a therapist I am adept at recognizing these symptoms through counseling and decided to post some of the warning signs if you have encountered someone you believe may be suffering from these symptoms.
This particular topic is one of the many extensions of Bi-polar disorder on the extreme end. Not all will suffer from this and some may never suffer an episode of Bi-polar until late in the senior year of age, however some have been known to suffer as early as 10 years of age which is rare.

Acute mania is marked by a severe exacerbation of the symptoms seen in hypo-mania, and the appearance of delusions. Typically, the delusions are grandiose: Religious delusions are very common as are grandiose ideas of psychic abilities. They are enthroned; indeed God has made way for them. Sometimes these grandiose delusions are held constantly; however, in other cases patients may suddenly boldly announce their belief, then toss it aside with laughter, only to announce yet another one, hence psychically enabled and gifted.
Persecutory delusions may also appear and are quite common in those who are of a predominantly irritable mood. The patientsí failures are not their own but the results of the treachery of colleagues. other outside influences or family. They are persecuted by those jealous of their grandeur; they are pilloried, crucified by the enemy which is part of the psychosis.
Occasionally, along with delusions, patients may have isolated hallucinations. The mood in acute mania is further heightened and often quite labile. Domineeringly good-natured one moment, the patient, if thwarted at all, may erupt into a furious rage of screaming, swearing, and assaultiveness leading to a very dangerously, hostile individual.
Flight of ideas and pressured speech become very intense. Patients seem unable to cease talking; they may scream, shout, bellow, sing in a loud voice or preach in a declamatory fashion to anyone whose ear they can catch.
This is often, but not always accompanied by people who have the side effect of grandiose behavior who will inflate themselves by making themselves appear more important and this could also come under the heading of "compulsive liar."
These types of people need recognition and a prime example is Stephen Glass who wrote articles full of lies and ruined many a person's career.
Most of us have and still do experience some jealousy. Perhaps someone paying too much attention to your g/f, b/f, wife or husband. Although some people may be quiet about their jealousy it still can rear it's ugly head.
Examples of of grandiose behavior however of makings other a public spectacle is quit common. This entrenches the person to feelings that they are superior which is another delusional quality.
People with "grandiose" just can't let it be and will often ruin relationships believing that their partner has cheated on them or is staring at the opposite sex and is interested. Imagined experiences are seen as the truth to them and this often leads to divorce or separation leaving the partner bewildered.
The importance of recognizing these symptoms in a loved one, friend or family member is imperative not only for their mental well-being also your own.
