Hoping someone has some insight…. This is typically a symptom of Bipolar /hypomania, but all of my symptoms are persistent depression (low mood, apathy, lethargy, no energy, negative ruminations). For years, I’ve the habit of excessive/ pressured speech. People literally must interrupt me. If it's someone i know (not a stranger), I often start talking louder if they try to reply so i don’t lose train of thought. I am not usually extroverted. At moment, I’m isolated/ very unsocial (due to depression). I start talking non-stop while trying to explain something (to a doctor, for example). People must cut me off because I literally can’t stop going on in repetitive detail. What is this? I feel a need to “over-explain” verbosely when I communicate. (on topic, I don’t go off on tangents)
