I think I'm in trouble. You guys know me ... I've always had regular cycles. Mania in winter, depression in summer, couple of weeks of relative stability in the spring and fall. I've had some longer cycles over the years, stayed manic for almost 4 years once. Now ... something is very wrong. I'm flipping from hilariously manic to crying the front of my shirt wet several times a day. There's mania, hypersexuality, hypomanic dysphoria, deep depression, I spent half the frikkin rent money on a damn facebook game, and everything in between. Started this crap three days ago ... maybe my son's murder has something to do with it? I'm feeling stable right this minute, so I thought I would write something while I still could. Should I check myself into the hospital?

Add on intense family issues, a major long-term relationship breakup,...
