Dear Bipolar Wellness Readers,
Marie wrote a comment on my post from yesterday. She is currently experiencing a mixed state of hypomania and depression. While I've read about it, I've never experienced it. So...if you do or have, I'd appreciate it if you'd either share your experience with Marie or you'd suggest other sites she might visit.
Marie, my first suggestion would be to contact your psychiatrist about this. In my experience, some of these problems are medication-induced--but that may just be me. As you know by now, in most cases, I'm the exception to the rule.
My second suggestion is to do research. Off the top, I'd suggest Living Manic Depressive by our friend Jinnah, Dr. Phillip Long's Internet Mental Health, Dr. Goldberg's Depression Central, and McMan's Depression and Bipolar Web.
If anyone has better suggestions or more personal information, please write ASAP.
P.S. Marie, I was just checking out some blogs from my blogroll and visited Meredith's The Mental Feminist and she's got a link on mixed states to Empirical Insanity. Both posts may be helpful.
