I believe this was some sort of manic episode. What caused the mania is unclear. That is something you may have wanted to look into, by asking him
questions like; what was he reading or watching around the time, when did his emotional state start to change, how was his sleep around the time, was
he stressed from work or anything else, etc.
Was he manic? I believe so. Does that make him Bipolar and because of this he needs to take medication for the rest of his life? No.
I believe he had a spiritual awakening.
It's important for him to take the medication for several months IMO. Until he starts to feel like his normal self again. But it wouldn't be a bad
idea to go off the medication and see a psychiatrist once a month. Although I wouldn't recommend this until he fully understands what Psychosis is,
the early warning signs, and how to keep it at bay naturally.
A good sign for Bipolar is after this manic episode, has he felt any depression since? High manic episodes tend to be followed by long depressive
states. This is Bipolar.
He could of just had a break down, and went manic for a short period, doesn't mean he is Bipolar, but it does mean for sure that he is susceptible to
Wish your family the best.
