It's good that you are seeing doc tomorrow. How often do you go? 4 months is a long time to be manic.
When feeling high in your mood, it is important to be focusing on activities that are SLOW. The whole goal is to slow yourself down to bring your mood back to a manageable level.
When I'm hypomanic, it's hard to do this of course. Most of me wants to enjoy the break from the depression and despair. But it's important that you try. I try to take walks, not power walks, but a stroll through pretty and QUIET nature. I take baths. I light candles. I listen to relaxing music. I write in my journal to try and rid myself from those racing thoughts. Watching TV sometimes helps make me sit still and not DO the fifty thousand things my brain is telling me I need to and can do!
The key is to stay away from the manic behaviors; shopping, going out with friends, housecleaning, excessive exercise....etc. SLOW is the key.
Not sure if I made sense at all, but hope you come down soon. It's no fun to be manic.
