I'm curious as to what degree one's perception is distorted during a manic episode. Aside from derealization, I've experienced occasional auditory hallucinations, minor visuals (e.g blotches in vision, sparkles, change in sharpness/clarity), closed eye visuals, and warping/bending of surfaces (in particular objects that are known to be straight and flat), all of which I experience only during manic episodes. During depressive episodes, I actually feel surprisinigly bland and devoid of sensation. Perception is flattened. So what I want to know is if these distortions are all a part of the mania, or if this is something completely different that I should be concerned about.
