Sudden paranoia/energy


Recommended Posts

I posted about my paranoia before but this seems to be different.

I haven't had a real manic episode in 5 years and right now I'm very depressed. I don't have the energy to do anything.

There have been 3 times in the past couple of months that I wonder about. Once, I got scared that people were watching me in the store. The other times, I was convinced child protective services was going to come to my house and take my kids away. My house is cluttered but not to the point that it's unsafe/unsanitary. So when this happens I start cleaning like crazy. I start shaking and sweating and have this sudden energy. It's really weird since I have zero energy the rest of the time. And I'm not paranoid unless I get into one of these "episodes". It only lasts for an hour or so.

Could this be part of the bipolar thing?

Maybe so. Could anxiety come on suddenly like that? That might explain it.

Yes! Anxiety can hit out of the blue. The reason I asked is that I have had some episodes very similar to what you describe, and it was always anxiety. I think that paranoia and delusions usually last longer than an hour or so.
