Eight years ago I had a mental breakdown.which turned my life upside down, it lead into severe depression .the first month of it I was really low then I woke up in the morning and felt like the depression was gone and I was cured.i went to work feeling amazing like I was on top of the world full of energy and that I was the boss(normal colleague) I had all the symptoms of hypomania which I didn't even no what is was back then like talking fast changing subjects can't stand still talking loudly working fast.getting annoyed because no-one was working as quick as me etc .the next day I crashed straight back down in to a low state.i was like this for about one year, I had on and off hypomania symptoms.for two days which comes and goes then I got help and my pdoc gave me sertraline.100mg and never had hypomania ever again. Bipolar type 2 you need to be Hypomania for minimum one week so I wasn't in that category

Hiya. Have you been formally diagnosed? I wasn't clear from your post. Are you on anti depressants? They can sometimes cause this in vulnerable people. Just a thought

I'm not sure if that diagnosed should change because adjustment disorder should only last for six months to a year

Wow! That’s a tough one and unfortunately I have no idea but wish you the best in your search for the help you need.

That sounds weird that they put you on AD but you experienced hypomania...but guess they were right if after the AD you didn't get more hypo. If you had bipolar, you'd more than likely would suffer more hypomania on AD.

I think I might have atypical depression too...but I still haven't ruled out bipolar2 completely. Hard to say if what I did/do experience was actually hypomania or me being ignorant with anxiety. Hard to explain. Anyway, still sorting it out. Good luck with your stuff!
