I'm just wondering if others experience episodes of euphoria that last from a few days to a week. My psychiatrist says that my elevated episodes don't last long enough to be diagnosed bipolar and that they fit bpd instead. They usually, but not always, happen when my antipsychotic is changed or I'm put on an antipsychotic that is ineffective for me. Sometimes they happen when I get put on a new antidepressant but they have also happened just randomly.
When I'm in a euphoric episode I experience a lot of energy when normally and literally can't sit still. I once had the police called on me when I was in my apartment because I was running back and forth for hours and making too much noise. I talk faster and think faster. Here is an example from a long time ago when I was really euphoric: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1K7ZKCLxSZOyIFp34OmoSVxoFQMBgDzTwekLXEnl8exg/edit?usp=sharing
I also become really impulsive and spend all my money and get into casual sexual encounters and dont' use protection. I also get very little sleep and feel really hyper even when i only got 3-4 hours of sleep a night for days on sleeping meds. I once went almost a week in college before I was diagnosed without sleep.
Does this happen for other people with bpd?
