So, I am definitely having mixed episodes and am ultra-rapid cycling here lately. Today i woke up at 6am after going to sleep at 11:30pm... I got up and went for a 4.5 mile walk at 7am this morning. Never done that before, but alas, there is a first for everything. While I have the increased energy and am moving, doing things & talking much faster than usual, my thoughts are also racing and I am more anxious.... frustrating to have these mixed emotions and feelings! Depression isn't realllly present, but I do have some of those less-than-helpful feelings that come with depression.

Just had to share and get this off my chest.

Mixed episodes and rapid cycling sucks :low: I used to have them a lot but luckily it's been a while. I found that stress and anxiety could trigger the episodes. I hope you feel better soon just hang in there and take care.

Thank you. The depression is hard right now. Very difficult to sometimes see the “light” in the darkness. But I’m a fighter. I know I can get through it.
