I suffer from Mixed Bipolar and on Friday I had a mixed Manic episode and I ran away back down south as I felt very alone and depressed, I stayed at my parents for the 1st time in a year and I felt very uncomfortable and had a panic attack. I ended up coming back up to derbyshire to my husband on the saturday. I hate having manic episodes! My hubby is back at work tomorrow and i am dreading it as I hate being on my own, I am already starting to feel anxious and nervous!. I just wish I never had this mixed bipolar I am consently worn out ! Can anyone help as I feel so alone and scared, being alone really isnt good for me as my mixed bipolar consists of BPD,Anxeity and other emotions. Any tips on how i can manage on my own? xx

Hey there,

Each of us is different, but perhaps the key is to find something repetitive but creative. I do crochet, increasing in complexity as my confidence grows. That obviously may not be anything like what you want to do, but I also do some soapstone carving, knitting etc. When the anxiety, depression or whatever hits, I concentrate on just another row, just another bit. I stop often, but pull myself back.

I also keep the telly on all day - but that's just me, it helps me to have something twittering in the background.
It also helps me to drink herbal tea, and take Night Nurse tabs when I get OTT. I know you are not supposed to with meds, but hell I do.

Can you go to the doc and get help with this? xxxx

Oh I should have said, and can't think why not, but a mixed state is really dangerous - can you get an emergency appointment with you pdoc? Its important.

Hey Fudgey, I get mixed epsiodes too, pretty sh1t eh. I agree with Calypso, finding something to do is important, something that you enjoy, i do a little housework then i have a browse on the pc, break your day in to sections your day seems less scarey that way lol

I also have the tv on all day. xx
