... When am I just legitimately angry? I have been in remission for 5+ years from manic episodes. I take my medication fairly diligently. My husband said something that angered me. He apologized, explained, apologized again. I forgave him quickly, via text. But actually, I was hot. I stacked up ALL the things he does wrong. I stayed mad. I re-invite the anger in,... (0 replies)
... I have been on Lamictal for the past week, and I have gone nuts! It seems to be working at times but, most of the times my mind is racing! I have been reading a lot on the internet about bipolar 2 or mixed moods as I call it, and the mood swings are so rapid that I don't know if it will quit. I feel just like y'all. I am angry, irritated, depressed and manic. I got two... (15 replies)
... Honestly, I truly don't have a good understanding of "mania" because my issues have primarily been depression and terrible mood swings. I still think of mania as being euphoric, impulsive, risk taking, and that's not me. ... (15 replies)

... I've felt this way before, but I've learned from past experience that I can't skip my meds or alter the way I take them. They need to be taken exactly as prescribed or else I can start to hear voices, become delusional, extremely paranoid, manic and severely depressed. I can also start rapid cycling which is something I would rather not deal with. That being said, there... (2 replies)
... Maybe that's why everything seems so slow, your irritability, and you wanting to hit your husband. These seem like signs of mania to me. Just somthing to consider that you may want to tell your pdoc about these symptoms as well. ... (9 replies)
... Most of my hypomania is edgy, irritable energy. ... (18 replies)
... As to whether or not it's difficult for others to recognize mania in their family members or friends, this is true, but not always. ... (18 replies)
... I would let your pdoc know about your current state. If left untreated, mania can turn into psychosis. Believe me, you don't want that to happen. I can tell you this from personal experience. ... (18 replies)
... Thanks. When I do talk to my pdoc, increasing Depakote will be the first step I take. If increasing it to 2000mg doesn't help, I'll try raising it to 2500mg. If that still doesn't help, I'll ask about Lamictal. I have a feeling that one of those increases will make a difference. I'm not med-resistant and Depakote has worked well for me all these years, so perhaps it's... (6 replies)
... Yeah sounds like you respond well to depakote then. Probably raising it would be a good first step since you have room to do that. And I know how scary those episodes are- sometimes I think back to it and can't believe that was me acting and thinking those things. I remember everything. Good luck:angel: (6 replies)
... As far as my rapid cycling is concerned, yes, it's very exhausting. Half the time I can't keep up with myself. It's tiring cycling from mania or hypomania to extreme irritability to severe depression and back to mania before it starts all over again, but in a different pattern. ... (6 replies)

Controlled mania
Feb 27, 2009
... As far as my mania is concerned, I LOVE my mania at the beginning of an episode, but hate it towards the middle and end because that's when I become extremely angry/irritable and depressed. I'm still trying to get my rapid cycling under control so that I'm not manic all the time, but I just started a new med which I'm hoping will reduce my cycling so I can start to feel level...

... I usually get irritable after my depression sets in. My manic symptoms begin with extreme happiness, followed by depression and then irritability. ... (7 replies)
... e up" and your reply would be just what I'd say. I drink caffeine and like to party, too when I'm manic! And I clean obsessively. Usually it's fun, but I'll get irritable and snap at people quickly, especially if they're not moving fast enough. ... (7 replies)

... we all know that territory. I also feel as if I just want to scream from the anxiety and am getting irritable at times. ... (2 replies)
... For me high stress and anxiety triggers my irritable manic mood. I can drink caffine all day long and it doesn't seem to bother me. Also, the way people talk to me and treat me affects my mood. ... (19 replies)
... Seaturtle, I know the feeling! I'm having to see my pdoc every week and now every other week I guess. And this after having an appt in which I was given three refills of meds for the first time. She really thought I was hypomanic at the time and I guess I was because it just built up more and more to mania. But I felt good and convinced her otherwise. She told me to call if... (15 replies)
