I have been diagnosed with depression and after some time discovering hypomania. Since that discovery a year and half ago I have separated from my wife (her choice) and bankruptcy. I do seem to be continuing my recovery but have a problem of motovation. I find myself staying in the house (alot) even when things need to get done. If your not familar with hypomania it is a soft bipolar, very functional condition and folks with this condition are creative and super outgoing.
Is this a reversal?
Is my depression coming back? I feel fine (considering the stressfull personal hardships) and continue my depression meds (bupropurion). I have been under the supervision of a pyscoligist until recently. I am not "affraid" to go out, just dont care to! This is a continuing pattern which i had for years outgoing but a homebody, but it is problemactic if things need to get done. It is sometimes difficult to determine red flags with both depression and hypomania, it is a happy-sad condition which is why i have been undiagnosed for over 25 years.
Suggestions welcome and thanks
