So, for a while now ive kinda been having fairly unusual mood changes. I go through depressive episodes that usually last anywhere between an hour or two to a couple days, then other times I might feel great and go exercise and socialize and get a lot of things done. Im also really irritable sometimes, and it takes next to nothing to set me off. I recently read an article (http://ibpf.org/article/3-stories-rapid-cycling) about 3 different peoples’ experience with rapid cycling bipolar disorder and the first one almost perfectly describes me. When im depressed, i decide that i need to see someone about this, but when i feel fine or even great, i feel like i had been exaggerating my symptoms or even making it up for attention so i never do. I guess i just need validation?
