   After a few days of being maybe mildly hypomanic but very happy and pretty stable, today its all went to hell!  I have no idea who what where when set it off but im seriously on the verge of freaking.  I don't know if I'm manic, depressed or both!  I wanna scream and fight and cry all at the same time!  Any advice for calming this down would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that depends on what you like to do. I'd recomend something repeditve and monotomous (like knitting, or putting a puzzle together...just something that will keep a hold on your concentration without being frustrating). reading a book (even just a dull one) might help & might want to see if you can do some meditation or even a few yoga moves (it can be tough but it will relax you).

it sounds like you are in a mixed state. are you taking any meds? are you safe? call your pdoc, if you have one.

You can be both as I am, rapid cycling or mixed or whatever they call it. I concur to call the pdoc.

Thanks so much for the replies and tips.  Im starting to calm down and feeling a little better.  I was diagnosed rapid cycling and was told that the whole mixed state thing is pretty common with that.  I am taking meds. I was on Seroqeul but about a week ago was switched to depakote. I also take effexor xr and klonopin.  I finally ended up taking a Klonopin and that has helped quite a bit to settle me down and come back to reality.  I dont know why I didn't just do that when I first started to feel panicky.  Maybe stubborness is another symptom we can add to the list of bipolar :-)
