I've gone from feeling really great for 8 weeks to feeling really crappy today. The change in mood is for apparently no reason. Why does this happen?? :(

I ask myself the same question. I've had a lot going on, but not enough to really make me depressed, yet I feel I have dropped in mood a bit. There'll be a reason why this happens but I don't know. Nature of bipolar? Mood swings! Crash after a high? :hug:

Crash after a high is so right. I feel almost physically shocked and sick at the way my mood has dropped so suddenly. The trouble is if there is no reason for the drop in mood then there is no way to think it through and solve the problem.

I find even when there is a trigger for a mood change that it doesn't help much to overanalyse it anyway. Bipolar is a mystic unfathomable force I feel. Thinking too much doesn't do much good.

I think that's my main problem, I overanalyse everything. I wish I could just turn my brain off for ten minutes to stop the thoughts from flashing past..over and over.......... It's bad enough when I'm feeling good but on bad days like today it's torchure.

Thanks, Toonafish (love the name.) I'm watching horror films and stuffing my face with chocolate right now. Tomorrow I'll try and do something fun. Hope you're feeling better now.
