... 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)

Controlled mania

... 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...

... Hi bipolarbear, Thanks for letting me get into your thread suddenly...:wave: bb - what if my husband is medicated properly? are the cycles of unstable temperments more manageable? He has just gone through a period of what looked like mania (anger/irritable/ugly/hateful/low self worth, etc...), now his meds have been changed and he seems much better, more the loving...

... ncontrollably, my teeth even come close to chattering, like I'm freezing, but I'm not. The conversation doesn't even have to be that interesting. I also get VERY irritable and full of rage, although I am able to keep it inside most of the time. ... (10 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)
... Hi everyone, Thanks so much for your replies! :) I feel so much better knowing that this isn't something I was dreaming up inside my head. Tsohl: What you describe of your son's behavior in a noisy restaurant was *exactly* how I felt last week while sitting in the waiting room at my pdoc. The noise was overwhelming and so bothersome I couldn't wait to get home to enjoy... (8 replies)
... My therapist that I have been seeing for the past 6 mo has begun to consider the possibility that I am bipolar. I've already been diagnosed with OCD and major depression - both of which I don't doubt for a second that I have. Most of the time I'm depressed, don't feel like doing anything, just lay in bed with my cat and watch tv... but when I'm not depressed (and when... (10 replies)
... Index.html, I was diagnosed for years as being "depressed" and was on a few different SSRIs. They never did work for me, as with you, it acually made my episodes of depression and mania (of course I had no idea what they were until I was diagnosed with BPII) become more common and debilitating. It wasn't until I was diagnosed properly and put on Depakote and Zyprexa, did I... (17 replies)
... Do any of you experience increased sound sensitivity while hypomanic and/or manic? I'm currently in a hypomanic state and have noticed that ordinary environmental sounds seem louder and are more bothersome than usual. With this being my first hypomanic state I've discovered that I start off feeling extremely happy and then feel very irritable. When I'm irritable, I don't like... (8 replies)
