Could be

Mixed epsiode is a wide thing........

it can mean you go from manic to depressed, to manic, to flat to... and so on.

ti can also feel that your body feels ready to go, but you mind is depressed, and you cant get going.........

You could be manic, getting exhausted and crashing, recovering and going off again, like an excited 5 year old.

Each to there own........ boB .........:p

Your choice

You have to make your own choice on that.

I oftern felt I should have a babysitter when my meds got changed, partly to stop me getting int trouble, and mostley cos I felt I could not asses my own stait...........
