Today I just realized that Im in the middle of a hypomanic episode. I cant stop my mind from racing, once I start talking I almost cant stop myself from going on and on, I cant pay attention on anything for more than a minute, and Im so anxious that i cant really sit still. It just so happens that i have a huge test on saturday that I need to study for badly! So you can see why this is a big problem for me right now on top of the usual dangers of being on an upswing in the bipolar cycle.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar 1 about eight years ago and one of my major issues in controlling my disorder is that Im extremely bad at identifying my mood states until Im right in the middle of them. I see a psychiatrist for medication management but in my time being on my meds, ive never stopped cycling, i just tend to not go as high or low as i would off meds.
Sooooo, anyone got any advice??
