Sometimes I have what are referred to as "manic episodes" where I'm totally whitty, funny, entertaining, know-it-all, and everyone around me loves it. As soon as I come off of that "high" and am in a different situation that day, I'm ill, isolated, don't want to talk, couldn't give a shit less what anyone wants to say...What is this? Is it a manic episode? I thought I was in a bad depression, or as my pdoc says, I'm severely depressed. Is it possible to have a myriad of emotions in one day?! I'm ill when I wake up, if I look good or like my outfit, I'm bouncing down the halls, talking to everyone, "Good morning", and then for some reason, later, when a co-worker I've already talked to that day (in my good mood) wants to talk again, I give them this look like, "Get the hell away from me!!!) Is this a manic episode? Is Lithium supposed to level all of this out?! I sure as hell hope so, because I've known I was probably bipolar for a long long time now, but have never had mood swings like this, where I can be elated, then a bitch, then kinda OK, and then talkative again in a 24 hr period. Someone please give me some insight! Does anyone else do this or is it just me?!
