    What is mixed state?

    Please help. I think I may be experiencing a mixed state but am not sure what it is exactly.

    I feel depressed, weighed down but feel pressurised by myself to keep going, but at the same time desperately feel like I need to slow down becuase of the depression - I don't know how I feel. Definitely different to my normal depression and different from my normal mania - def feels like in between - but not nice, not stable.

    Please describe what a mixed state feels like to me...

    A mixed state is just that - a mix of depression and mania. Usually, the depressive thoughts prevail but you have the energy to keep going and could be irritable and unreasonable without knowing it. Often, the suicide rate is highest in mixed states because the person feels depressed but has the energy to carry out suicidal plans. I'd call your doctor as soon as you can and explain to him/her the situation so you can maybe get a med adjustment.
