Like I find myself thinking wow I’ve been manic the last few X (usually days but sometimes weeks) and I didn’t even really notice. So often it seems
Yesterday I noticed everything felt off. I went to work and was home, same old routine but every thing felt strange and off. Today same thing, especially when I got put on ovens at work, the lighting was off. It was weird. I feel weird and off and way too ■■■■■■■ happy for no good reason.
I think chemicals in the brain are going haywire.
Nothing can be done.
But you can practice how to handle such situations.
Which takes lots of time.
Well maybe your mood cycle has changed. Just keep an eye on it. Write down how long the manias last
In simple terms. Thats your head fcking with you mate.
Find your stable boundary - and stick to it.
Im sure i dont need to tell you - to take your meds either.
I feel funny everyday too
I feel like I might be heading towards an episode. I slept 5 hrs and I feel so incredibly anxious
You should tell your PDoc about it before it happens
I’ve had mixed episodes, mania and depression simultaneously every day for over 2 weeks now.
I understand you @Grookey
You had a med change a little over a month ago and forgot your meds about two weeks ago. If I had to guess, you regularly feel manic because you haven’t had a consistent med level for long enough.
It might also be the changing seasons and the earlier sunset messing with your sleep patterns. Lots of folks have seasonal episodes. Mine come on in the spring.
Sorry, rereading this I realize it sounds like I am blaming you. I didn’t mean for that at all. I was trying to be reassuring. We all have med errors occasionally, and we all have trouble transitioning. It doesn’t necessarily mean things are going downhill. It is hopefully temporary.
