Re: """""TRIGGER""""Coming down from manic episode
I used to do that too. My pdoc calls it a mixed state. It's like you have all the energy and rapid thoughts of a manic episode but you're really depressed at the same time. It used to make me feel as though I was litterally loosing my mind. It could have been the smallest thing that set me off. Like if my boyfriend didn't call me when I thought he was going to. I would start to think that he was cheatting on me...the thoughts would just go on and on. I would get so worked up that I would take a razor and cut my wrists. There was something really calming about seeing the blood. I know it might sound a little weird. I tell you this so you don't feel alone. I know what it's like.
Are you seeing a doctor? I think that it would be a really good idea for you to see a psychiatrist and maybe get on some meds. I can't imagine cutting now that I've been in treatment for a year and a half. I never thought that I could feel good but now I do. Good luck, let me know if I can help you with anything else. Good luck,
