There's defininitely no mixed states! This morning I was slightly depressed for a few hours which turned into a deep depression in which I was suicidal, then it went straight up into hypomania, cleaning my room talking 100 miles a minute, screaming, dancing, etc. Since then it has gone down a little but I'm still going pretty strong and about to go swimming because usually when I swim a lot it brings me down some. I can also be angry in hypomanic states and irritable in depressed states. I have experienced a few mixed states but it's been extremely rare. I have a mood chart I created myself where you can see the waves throughout the day, up and down up and down, but I don't know if there's so way I can post it on here so you can see. The colors switch each day so you can tell one from the other. Anyway, I imagine this is very hard to treat. I've had my thyroid checked which turned out fine and I don't really qualify as borderline. My doctor diagnosed me bipolar II- ultradian. It's a pain for sure!!
