What does it feel like. I think I'm in the middle of one now. I'm sad but highly agitated, can't sleep but want to go to bed. Racing thoughts but no energy. Want to curl in a ball and cry but can't for some reason. It feels very strange. Does this sound like a mixed episode?

I kind of think that if you were in a mixed state you would likely not be able to think it through and recognise you were in one (based on my own experience of them). Hope you feel better soon though.

It kind of sounds like it...a classic "mixed" state is happy then sad and vice versa. It's quite annoying to deal with because you don't know what you feel is really "you" or the illness. Maybe try to get some rest and calm your mind.

I don't really get into those sort of states anymore, the medication is right for me. I can relate though because I've been there.

It feels like violent mood swings.. just really up and then plummeting back down.. usually like a sadness spread throughout a mania..
