Re: manic and depressed???????????

hi chaser,
could be whats known as rapid cycling (alternating between manic and depressed episodes or moods in very quick succession). Its particularly common with BP II. i used to rapid cycle to the point where i felt like the happiest person in the world in the morning and was suicidal by the afternoon. Talk to your doc or pdoc. good luck, Fallen

What you are experiencing is a mixed episode. I get them too. For example, I can be depressed yet my brain is going a million miles per minute.
