Hypomania?

I think I am hypomanic
I watched a movie and was shaking at the excitement

Drove home and was doing more than 80 in a 60 limit - which is not my usual mode, generally, when I am sane, I stick to the speed limit.
Driving like I am in the movies
Then I slowed down for the urban section and there was a police car at the roundabout I thought - oh-oh - but they didn't follow me
and I nearly burst into tears.

I am not going to drive for a few days.

Ate my dinner at high speed, almost rubbed it over my face.

I need to calm down
Watching telly at the moment

Look after yourself Shaky. :hug1:
I think it's a sensible decision not to drive for a while if you're driving too fast.
I hope that this feeling passes for you, it doesn't sound very nice to be living with it.

Today I am coughing again - so annoying.

And I am depressed instead of hypomanic

Ready for some SH
I have prepared
I have that still, calmness that leads to SH

Stay safe, Shaky. :hug:

Remember you don't have to SH just because you planned it.
This is one time when it's ok to procrastinate and the like.

I am definitelyhypomanic this morning
Been rushing round like a blue bummed fly
I even bared my blue bum as I came back indoors after putting the bin out

Dangerous.

I am supposed to be playing games today - it might be a good way to slow down - but seems a shame to waste this energy :unsure:

In an above post from Saturday I said I wasn't going to use the car for a few days
I forgot and drove to the city yesterday - but I was fine

But today I used it again due to the rain and it not being in the garage
Not so good
Driving too fast, being impatient

I need to let it stay in the garage

I am buzzing at the mo'
So much energy - what to do with it

I did play some games and that calmed me down
I have a game scheduled for this evenin too - probably a good thing
I will walk to that event.

Anyway - must dash
:woohoo:

I have done so much today.
I even went swimming - first serious bit of exercise this year - did 25 minutes in the pool
I even made a telephone call - although by the time it was finished I was almost a shivering wreck.

I think I am just bubbling under hypomania
Sort of semihypomanic
