Unfortunately however, many of the online chat rooms that promote themselves to bipolar people have other agendas – for example lots of advertising and selling, or adult chat that fuels bipolar symptoms, leading to bipolar mania or even infidelity.

(PLEASE NOTE: Bipolar Sleep problems are not just a symptom – they are a powerful WARNING of an impending mood swing so please be mindful of your late night online chat room surfing.) How do I know if my visits to the bipolar chat room are helpful or harmful?

An online chat room can be a great outlet and a great source of bipolar support (although adult chat is unwise during manic phases).

Please be warned that it can be a major catalyst for bipolar infidelity. Am I honest with my spouse or significant other about the duration and nature of my bipolar chatting? How much time does my online chatting take away from other activities? Just be aware of the potential for bipolar manic abuse – DON’T MAKE MY MISTAKES!
