  1. Does anyone else have sound sensitivity? It comes and goes, especially when I’m feeling agitated/mixed. Been off work 3 days per pdoc and I go back tomorrow because I cannot afford to be off. Today’s been the worst for the sensitivity. I dread going back tomorrow because my workplace is very noisy and often when on the phone with a client a voice hits a certain pitch and I’m cringing; it’s almost painful. I want to hang up and flee. The pdoc is sending me this afternoon to a depression/anxiety group which is senseless and I don’t want to go because it’s weekly but this is the only day I c
  2. Do you ever have ultra-rapid/mixed-type episodes (imagine the flavor of uncontrollable crying, deep despair, hopelessness, with added dash of hysteria and near-psychosis). These episodes repeat each month (3-4x), but only last 1-2 hours...they have become more & more erratic as I've become older. It can be a small trigger, stress builds and it's like a mini-nervous breakdown, feelings overwhelm, before I can pull myself out. It can be quite traumatic, honestly. No one can tell me what this major brain blip is. Most doctors have diagnosed me with major depression, but then I have these
  3. When you experience a change in mood, be it mania, depression, hypo or mixed does it creep over you slowly or is it like a switch got flipped? I would like to ask the same question in regards to delusional/paranoid/psychotic symptoms. For me and a few others I know it's a switch. Sometimes with a known trigger and sometimes just because BP wants to fuck with me. Winter depression creeps but turns off all at once for me. So a bit of a creepy switch. Do you find the same in reverse? Your depressed for a period, say 6 weeks and then click the switch gets flipped and wham it
  4. Can you be Bipolar if you only experience Mixed episodes (intense dysphoria/angst/anxiety) along with chronic Depression? I experience both states, but I consider the depression to be my chronic baseline mood (if that makes sense) I don't go "up & down" in the classic manic/depressive polarity it seems. To clarify, I never feel "sped up" I always sleep alot, I don't act impulsively and I don't really get angry. I sometimes get irritable (but it's usually justified - like no more irritable than an average person) I thought to be Bipolar you need to experience at least 1 full manic epis
  5. Hello everyone, last 5 days i feel depressed, but not "clasical" depressed, i've anxiety,irritiabilty,anger, high energy, i want to do something,but can't focus on just one thing what to do. Sleep is distrubated,fragmentary. body feels exhausted,but mind is active, i also have suicidal thoughts.
  6. So I've been on lithium and Seroquel since 2011 for bipolar mania. It's worked pretty well, but the lithium has caused hypothyroidism as well as early signs of kidney problems (renal tubular acidosis). Neither of these are bad enough to pull me off the lithium at the moment. Earlier this year, I started sinking into a depression fueled by school and medical issues. Eventually, my pdoc added Prozac for depression and Klonopin for anxiety. To make a long story short, the depression/anxiety were bad enough to get me into a partial hospitalization program (PHP). The PHP pdoc told me that Pr
  7. It's been awhile since I posted.... I have still been what I think is a mixed state rapid cycle for months now :/ I was on the Trileptal but as it increased it just gave me headaches so bad I ended dup in the ER because it was shooting down my back and neck (It did help my physical problems though) So I already know a number of antipsychs don't work and worsen m physical problem. Depression meds have always revved me up unbearably. Other then Valium my first notable calmness came with Depakote, however like I said before it oddly gave my a weird audio hallucination on a extremely low dose on
  8. I was diagnosed bipolar 2 at 17 and mixed type about 2 yrs ago. I was doing some reading because I have been off meds for a few months and things are just getting worse. Anyhow I read that bipolar swings have periods of normal in between. Now I am confused. I honestly do not remember a time when I wasn't hypomanic, full blown manic, extremely depressed, extremely angry, or a combination of them all at the same time. So my question is could it be something else? My moods swing anywhere from a few times a day to consistent for over a year. It feels like just in the last 3 years I have been a
  9. Does anyone know what I mean and what you call it? When I get into a mixed state, I get this uncomfortable yucky feeling, it's like a mental itch that makes me want to self harm or use drugs/alcohol to get rid of it. I don't physically feel anything, it's a mental unsettledness, for lack of a better word. It's a fairly reliable warning sign that I am starting to circle the drain and need to call the doc.
  10. I'm hoping there are others who hate the transition from late winter into spring as much as I do. Here is this topic summed up: do you suffer from very rapid and intense mood cycling when winter slowly blooms into spring? I honestly feel as though my mind is in sync with the transition of the death of winter into the explosion of life that is spring time. I'm diagnosed as rapid cycling bipolar 1 disorder (I think I have schizoaffective bipolar type due to hallucinations, delusions, visions, and intense paranoia but I don't care to be officially diagnosed). The slow transition from late win
  11. I have no idea what is going on in my head. I was diagnosed with depression 20+ years ago, but the past year have had what feels like hypomanic episodes, most recently I don't know if I've been having ultra-rapid cycling or mixed state bipolar. I'll have a few days of really really high energy, talking fast, making lots of plans, taking on new projects, spending, not sleeping, then low energy and irritation, the whole time though with thoughts of death and suicide almost all the time. I've been missing a lot of class and can't concentrate very well at school or work. Due to a screw up with my
  12. Okay, in my posts, I have been referring to my depression since July of 2011 as moderate. I thought it was moderate, which I knew still meant I was depressed. But compared to episodes I experienced in my 20s and early 30s I knew what *severe* depression felt like, and this wasn't it. Then the mixed episode was triggered about 3 weeks ago, and kablooey, and I don't know how much longer I can cope. Then I saw the stupid covering pdoc (who I do. not. like. She is condescending, and I am smarter than she is (not about psychiatry, but in general). Another thing I like about my pdoc is that he i
