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've been pretty stable the last few months. I haven't had a depressive episode in months and no hypomania. My meds really seem to be working. I was substitute teacher last school year but I recently found a part time job as a paraprofessional and I am happy with a set schedule. I'm doing so well and I hope it continues. My kids see a huge change in me and are proud of how well I am doing.
