For approximately the past month I’ve been very quickly cycling between mildly elevated and mildly depressed mood. With each cycle the mood feels a bit stronger and more problematic. I’ve just emailed my doctor, so hopefully he has some insight.

This “rapid cycling” or whatever it’s called is so frustrating. I never know what to expect when I wake up in the morning. I kept trying to convince myself that this is just normal and I should stop over analyzing symptoms, but that’s not true.

To all you out there who’ve experienced mixed mood or rapid cycling, my empathy. If you have any advice I’d love to hear it.

    I also experience rapid cycling. I can literally be happy as hell one day and then wake up the next morning feeling like death. It gets very frustrating, I agree. I am even on a mood stabilizer and this still happens

      I’m sorry you’re struggling with this too, TD. I’m in contact with my doctors now and am hoping they have some kind of solution. It’s awful not to know what to expect of each day.
