I feel really shity at the moment as have been going through a mixed state for the past few days. generally been in a depression but a couple of nights ago i became paranoid and had a panic attack that lasted through out the night so i'm back on the propranalol (took one a couple of hours ago and am trying to keep my eyes open, lol). Went out yesterday evening as had a meeting with some people from the northampton mdf group and despite the depression i ended up unable to stop smilling and laughing all through the meeting - maybe not a good sign. Last night i slept for 13 hours and still woke up feeling like i had only just gone to bed. i'm in two minds as to make an appointment with my g.p as my care co-ordinator does not work fridays or see haow things pan out over the weekend.

Really thinking about taking a walk to the g.p and asking what i can do. i have a plan of action from the doc g.p that ussually works by taking an extra 20mg of citalopram when low and an extra 100mg carbamazepine when manic but have never been told what to do when expiriencing a mixed eppisode.

Actually, I tend to hate any kind of episode :), though my last one was a mixed one and I tend to agree with you.

I really hate this. I feel happy but at the same time so low i feel like crying. I could easily go out and blow my money on silly things, i can't even concentrate enough to watch a film / t.v or read a book.

If you are feeling like this please call your local mental health crisis team (every area should have one) failing that the samaritains are always there. Please take care xx

Thanks, maybe the ones i saw was having an off day, she told me she was here to see if i needed to go in to hospital or not! errr nearly died, i hate hospitals, she made it out like i had no choice, she told me i needed to go on anti depressants and she is writing to my doctor to tell him that, felt like i had no choice! even though i did explain both me and doctor didnt want me on them!

God only knows what will happen if i get suicidal again, hope next time they are better :)

Good luck Colin. I am experiencing awful mixed episodes atm. I am am inpatient atm - so they nurses can see what is going on. Mixed states are so hard for me to cope with. Love,
