I'm a little manic...doing a lot of shopping!
My hubby's going to be mad but I can't seem
to stop. Then when I get the stuff home I don't
even like it. I'm so glad I'm not depressed anymore.
Pdoc may have upped the dose too much-I did call him
today but it being a Friday afternoon could not get him

Having trouble with chaotic thoughts, no organization.
Is it ok to be hypomanic...Im not manic. It feels happy
like the whole world is an open door and people seem far
more interesting than usual.

Yes...your meds seem to be out of whack. It is best to tell your husband. Tell him you are manic right now, and that you are aware that you spent money you shouldn't have. It is during these times that you need to really concentrate on doing the right thing...even when the world seems worry free. He can help by taking away the credit cards, money, etc. until you get through this.
As a bipolar person, it is definitely not ok to be hypomanic. It is causing you to make bad decisions and you know this. Yea...it feels good, but you have been through this before and you know what it leads to.

yep...I've told hubby and he's very understanding bc he has BP too.
We've been digging around for receipts and tags and have bagged as much
up as we can to return to 6 different stores tomorrow. He has taken away the credit
card and checks.

You did exactly what I was going to suggest--take as much as you can back to the stores...so good for you!  That should make you feel better too, b/c when I'm hypomanic I do the exact same thing, shop.   And my head spins, thoughts so fast....it does feel good, especially after a bout of depression.  But you also did the right thing in calling your pdoc, b/c hypomania is not stable and the goal is to be stable!  Hope you get adjusted soon....til then keep making good decisions (or at least try, I know it's hard!!)

I am proud of you for taking that step in the right direction. I hope you start to feel some relief by returning as much as you can. You will get through this. I am glad you called your pdoc.. You are being responsible and taking care of yourself...good for you.

Hi Red Lightening,
 
I'm glad you posted about what you were going through and that you took other's suggestions. 
 
I too am glad that you shared the situation with your hubby and are handling that!  That is what a good support network is all about...not keeping things to yourself but openly sharing what is going on with you so that you can get some help & support! 
 
Good for you!
 
Please call your doctor and let him/her know what is going on with you so that he can make the necessary adjustments so that you can get more leveled.
