I struggle with awareness of hypo or manic episodes. So I look for my markers.  Markers I have worked on with my Tdoc. 

While I know that I see all the markers I seem to want to prove to myself I am fine. 

It’s not like I am constantly hypo or manic. I have quiet times inside of the episode. Hours usually, maybe a day.   Even a depressed or agitated day. 

These quiet times let me deny anything is wrong.

Do you experience the same?

Yes. I have days when everything seems-I was going to say normal, but baseline might be a better way of putting it. I don’t know why they happen any more than I know why the episode happens.

I also have moments of lucidity during episodes. If there is one thing I've learned about bipolar over the years is that anything goes.

Within a hypo episode, yes, definitely. Which is why I question a lot of whether my cycle has swung up, or is it my imagination. If it swings into mania though (which thankfully isn’t often), all bets are off. I think it’s because I don’t have any relief from it that I don’t have any awareness it’s happening until I crash hard.
