I'm just recovering from an episode of Mixed Bipolar State. It was absolutely horrific. I went to the hospital twice during this episode. They sedated me with Adivan one time and Clonazepam the second time. This was my first 'mixed' experience and it left me mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted. I've had several manic/hypomanic episodes and several depressive episodes, but never both at once! I would love to hear about the kind of mixed episodes other people have so I can hopefully know if my episode was 'typical' or worse than usual. I really don't want to go through anything like that I again. I hope they're not always this bad.
