Now what? Still cycling

I cycled into a deep depression earlier today out of the blue and had suicidal thoughts enter my head again.
Because I’m a rapid cycler the deep depression lasted for about 2 hours.
Now I’m moderately depressed but could swing into a deeper depression or mania any moment now.

What now?

Should I contact my psychiatrist to add another mood stabilizer like low dose lamictal?

I refuse to increase the Depakote dose.

Or should I wait it out and see what happens?

I hate this ■■■■■■■ illness.

I don’t know what you should do as far as meds go but it does sound like you should contact your psychiatrist and discuss the options. You’ve had a real bad time as of late.

Thanks @Bowens
I texted my psychiatrist for an earlier appointment.
Hopefully she’ll respond at some point.
