well its good you hve an appoitment on monday to get your hypomania under control. untill then avoid caffenne, alchol, drugs, anything that can get you even higher. excersise as much as you can, sleep if you can but if sleep wont come then do something to keep busy.
it sounds like you might be on the verge of a major mania. i get lots of hypomania and have learned to cope with it well. its when i get to much mania that i have issues. and in fact my meds are designed to keep my manias under control.
You can get thru this, things will get.better. once you get a med that works life is quite a bit easier.
And getting your wife help is also important also. She needs to get educated as to what this desease does and what it doesnt do. SHe will need to learn what she needs to spot to help you see problems before they get to this. BTW my wife wasnt interested in gettingn this help, thought it was all my problem and i should be the one to handle it. Well thanks to that we are now getting divorced. It sucks but honestly this is a desease that affects BOTH people in the marriage. Not just one of you.
