Do People Black Out in Manic Episodes?

A person’s brain often goes ‘off line’ during full blown manic and psychotic episodes, which may affect their memory.

It’s hard for family members and partners to believe that a person with bipolar disorder can’t remember certain mood swings.  I often hear the question, “ Doesn’t my husband (partner, child, sibling) see the damage he did when he was manic! Is he lying to me when he says he can’t remember? How is this possible?”
