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...

Just trying to get count of those who made it through the Change. Play with us, please.
Need ideas please. I have insomnia. I am trying hard to reset my sleeping habits to being a morning person. I know if I am up early I tend to get more motivated and more things done. I take my meds regularly one of which is Seroquel which can make a person sleepy. I took two one mg Ativan that was a desperate move on my part and I am allowed to do this per Doc orders. I am not willy nilly...
