I'm not quite sure I understand what you're looking for. For me after a mania I crash fast and hard. I become extremely depressed. Loose my sex drive. Sleep a lot but never enough. I'm filled with self hate and paranioa. I have no interest in hygene. I really can't function. This is only when I'm unmedicated and go through a very high mania. Now that I'm on meds and stabilized, I don't have the high high thus no low lows. I'm sorry I can't help more than that.

My manias would just taper off and I'd be back on a plateau for awhile.
I would have 1 -2 major depressions & 1 way-bad mania a year with plateaus in between each.
I'm betting that everyone's cycle of moods is pretty individual from the sounds of it so far.
I have pretty rapid cycles, I could have highs that lasted a day or a week. For me they dont always correspond with my lows, but sometimes they do, and when they do is when I crash the hardest, staying in my lows for as long as a month once. I have more depressive moods that manic(although mine are hypomanic, never really experienced an extreme manic state...yet)
Hi I'm also little new here.. I will be diagonised later this week, as of exactly what it is I have.. I have had lows for about 28 straight days. All this past weekend I can feel myself go into a spiraling down I think is how you spell it.. I only have Highs once or twice a month. The spiraling down for me is a depression mode, where I don't care about anything. Except for my little girl, My mind starts thinking crazy thoughts, I start getting desyix, I started to type the x on the right side of keyboard..
Actually I'm starting to crash with no hope!! til my bf gets upset I didn't do anything ie. apply for jobs, get things taken care of. I feel like I'm falling, and fast I can't even think straight!! I need all the help I can get now, but I know I can straighten up put everything aside and dkeep going. Knowing deep inside I'm crashing.. I got to make a call right now. Thanks, hope this helps some..
