If you search the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, you will see that anger is not a symptom of bipolar disorder. The trouble with this seems to be that many people do experience anger, irritation and aggression as symptoms of their bipolar disorder. As I said, anger is not, in any way, a recognized symptom of bipolar disorder, but in my experience, and in the experience of many others, anger seems to be associated with bipolar disorder. Now, it is possible that the reason that anger is not recognized as a symptom of bipolar disorder is because it, indeed, is not a symptom of bipolar disorder and is, instead, a side effect from bipolar medication. But no matter why you’ve angry, and no matter if it really is a symptom of bipolar disorder, what matters is that you don’t take that anger out on other people.
No matter what you choose to do, one thing I know for sure is that you don’t want to let anger control your life or your interactions with others because that will hurt them and, ultimately, you.


Thanks again for the link — I look forward to what others have to say about the article.
I believe that anger and hostility are definitely symptomatic of the disease, but I also believe that being a victim of the disease causes a reactive rage. If you search the International Classification of Diseases manual (maintained by the World Health Organization) you will see that anger is not a symptom of bipolar disorder.
It doesn’t appear to be recognized, or even proposed, that a symptom of bipolar disorder is anger. I am nearly 47 and a lot of my energy goes into masking my symptoms at work so I can keep working or into practicing CBT in my head to get through the day. I had him read the two paragraphs about being angry at the bipolar, not anyone or anything, and how he may not be able to control the anger but that he was responsible for his actions, and it gave him what he needed to start talking through some of his reasonably conflicted emotions.


It’s as if I was drunk and have to rely upon a witness to give me the details of what I did. I’m sure we can all imagine what happens to the captor the millisecond he springs that lock, that safety, that buffer between life and death.
