I just wanted to post my experiences and see how others expericence their bpd.
I can have an elevated mood for a day or days with little to no depression.
I can have more depression for a day or days with little elevation.
I can have both daily, i can feel elevated and then spiral down to depression.
Or i can be depressed and then become elevated or more normal.
so it does fluctuate about daily weekly.
The elevation symptoms cause restlessness like i can't sit still, at times i feel a little more talkitive, i have a flood of plans and ideas. it can be fun! but its hard to live in the moment and enjoy now. i also can become more irratable and aggitated. Thats as far as it goes, never anything dangerous or severe. No bad habits.
The lows, anywhere from mild dysthermia, mild blues, to moderated or major depression to the point where i feel like i may break down and cry. but i dont.
I was diagnosed with hypomaina, bi polar 2 i believe about 2 years ago.
No meds were of any help so im off meds and have been for sometime now.
with good coping skills and the grace of god i make it through each day, week, month, year.
thanks for listening and replying.
