Without thoroughly evaluating you in-person, I can’t determine if your symptoms are related to bipolar disorder. Only a clinician who conducted a thorough mental health evaluation could make that determination.
Your symptoms are concerning. As you noted, they are worsening. You described auditory hallucinations, a number of illogical thinking patterns, social isolation, paranoia, memory and other cognition problems. You may be experiencing psychosis. Psychosis is a break with reality.
It’s imperative that you are evaluated by a mental health professional. He or she can determine the nature and origin of your symptoms. After an evaluation, treatment will be recommended. In your case, they may suggest counseling and medication. Counseling can help you to stay grounded in reality. Medication is particularly effective in reducing symptoms of psychosis.
You should not ignore your symptoms. Psychosis generally does not improve on its own. Treatment is almost always required. Fortunately, there are very effective treatments for your symptoms. Early treatment of active psychosis is associated with positive outcomes. Please take care.
