The Rapids of My Bipolar

So for the past few days I have been rapidly cycling throughout the day, a couple of hours I am depressed, doors/windows and curtains closed. Then when the mania hits I have been at the top end of mania, I have non-stopped cleaned, moved things around and started spending recklessly. It seems to run in random cycles. Some days its half a day depression, half mania, sometimes its more mania than depression. It’s a real struggle right now and I am hoping the psychiatrist I see on Thursday can adjust medication or give me some coping strategies.

Anyone else rapid cycle? Share your experiences I would love to hear what you go through and how you manage them.

  1. I’m a rapid cycler but my mania doesn’t last as long as my depression. It’s very frustrating going from one end to the next, it’s like being on a roller coaster. I wish I was able to get more done.
