i think i finally figured out what's been going on with me.  my doc and i agree that i am definitely experienciing bp II symptoms, but more than anything i am in mixed states.
i can't believe this.  i don't want to live like this anymore (i'm not suicdial) i just don't want to deal with this anymore.
can anyone relate to mixed states?  and can anyone feedback to me what they've found successful for treatment?
thanks, i am slipping closer to the edge.... sad

I can definately relate.  I was diagnosed Bipolar a few months ago and I was experiencing rapid cycling/mixed states when I was least in my opinion.  For example, I would be extremely manic or happy in the morning and become severely depressed at night when the sun goes down.  Or, it would do the opposite depressed in the morning and manic at night.  It was really hard and I asked the doctor if it was normal for me to switch moods so often even in the same day, and he said it is a normal part of being bipolar.  From my own research, I can tell that I was experiencing mixed states.  Are you on medicine now, or have you been taking any to help?  My Lamictal has helped me a whole lot and I feel like a completely different person because I am now in control of my moods and emotions and I decide when I am happy or sad. The best advice I can give you other then finding the right medicine, is to remember when you are going through these mood swings that it is not your fault.  I know you may feel crazy and confused, and really doubt yourself...but remember it is not your fault and the moods will change once you find the right medicine.  Good luck and keep us posted about any good changes or changes at all.

Hi everyone, I've been doing some mood charting and have noticed that I too rapid cycle during some parts of the month anyway.  My mood in the morning is low and its hard to get out of bed then I feel stable by lunch time and then in the evening by around 9pm I'm ready to dance a marathon and then the next day is the same.  I talked to my doc and she said to instead of taking my meds at night time only to save a small fraction for after supper to calm me down a little.  Hopefully this will work, I do enjoy my energy spurt at night but my biological clock is getting thrown out of whack by this and I'm missing too much of the day.  A lot of our moods change by the amount of sunlight we receive also.  Take care, Nan
