Hey, it does sound like your mood is pretty high. How have things been today and yesterday since you posted this?

It sounds like part of you is aware that you might struggle to sort out a hotel so I hope you can hold onto that logic and not make any decisions impulsively.

Hey thanks for the reply I am really tired today had three or four days of being high or whatever n now I'm feeing rubbish think I'm coming down with a cold too am fine with the flu I have less symptoms and basically go hyper with the flu but colds I don't cope as well with which even I think is weird. I am weird tho and so tired apparently there r cheaper hotels about so that's something and I'm not talking five star luxury just a travelodge or Premier Inn if I just pay for mine instead of paying my friends too I think I can afford it particularly if I save up

Have you ever had any professional input for your fluctuating moods?

I guess if you're saving up, that gives you time to make sure you definitely want to spend your money on the trip and that it's not just a fleeting thing related to high mood.

Yeah kind of had help for it in the past not for the highs but for the moodswings in general and for the lows. Been wanting to go for ages just didn't believe I could do it

Koala hugs 01-09-2019 11:21 AM

Gone hyper again plus side I've been on an exercise machine I have at home feel quite proud of myself

Pi.R^2 02-09-2019 10:31 PM

Maybe it would be worth speaking to someone about these highs as well then. Do you live with anyone? If so, it might be helpful to let them know what's going for you moodwise and perhaps they can help with grounding and challenging you before you make any impulsive purchases or decisions!

I live alone but I am OK with mentioning it too my gp it's on the list for the gp s apt

Pi.R^2 03-09-2019 08:43 PM

Good, I'm glad it's on the list to talk about with your GP.

Obviously I'm not a doctor so I'm not saying that you have hypomania or anything but you might find this link helpful as it has some ideas for managing episodes of high mood (starting on page 13): https://www.mind.org.uk/media/488570...mania-2016.pdf

The link above poster mentioned might help with the impulse control etc when you’re hyper. Same advice would apply to EUPD diagnosis etc as well. Have you ever spoken to anybody about help managing emotions and ways to manage your harmful behaviours?

Koala hugs 03-09-2019 09:30 PM

Thanks guys have read the pdf it was helpful. Yeah I have spoken about managing my emotions better in the past. Haven't spoken as much about behaviour except with a friend

Koala hugs 04-09-2019 07:35 PM

Gp visit went well but I have to go back on my meds so took them today

Pi.R^2 04-09-2019 09:18 PM

I'm glad that the appointment went well. Even if you're not super happy about the medication do you understand the reasons for continuing to take it?

Koala hugs 05-09-2019 12:20 AM

Yeah I do get why I have to take it. I am back on them already
