Cycling again and turning on the heat

I’ve been mood cycling again.
Two days ago I was hypomanic then depressed and yesterday I cycled downward mainly.
Thankfully I see my psychiatrist in two more days.

Also woke up and the house was freezing so I decided to turn on the heat.
First time this year.

The shorter days and colder weather might be getting to me.

Ugh… it’s going to be a long dark winter :pensive:

It’s not out of control but it’s happening.

I’m so sorry this is happening to you @Wave .

@ninjastar often recommends cold packs to the back of the head for mania or hypomania.

For me, when I’m down, it helps to write down ten or more things in my life that I am grateful for. And then meditate on those things.

God bless you @Wave .

I’ve been feeling somewhat restless these past few weeks. I doubt it’s mania though

I’ve been getting mixed states again. It seems to happen around winter season. I wish there was a way to be instantly calm instead of feeling jittery for like 6 hours

Mixed states are rough. Do you have an anxiety PRN that could help?

I have propranolol. But I don’t have any benzos.
I drink lots of sedative tea when I’m in that state
