I am a graduate student and it's funny, but I'm working toward my PsyD in Clinical Psychology. I say it's funny because I need the kind of help I'm trying to learn how to give. It's more ironic than funny, I guess. I feel so alone. I am perfectly fine one minute, but the smallest thing can send me into a rage or an emotional downward spiral. I don't have the even emotions that everyone around me seems to have. It is always either all or nothing, and it's usually all. I don't have the true depressive episodes, but I rapidly cycle between manic episodes and having 'the blues.' Sometimes I have so much energy that I literally cannot sit still and sleep is not necessary. This is when I have problems. My boyfriend is supportive, but he doesn't know how it feels, and I worry that he is getting tired of putting up with my mood swings. I don't know what to do. I feel so alone. I just need to know that I'm not the only one that experiences extreme anxiety and mood swings...

I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
