    I think this has been caused by the amount of stress I have been under recently. I recently did a stint of night shifts where I got little sleep, and because I was on nights I didn't take my anti psychotic because I wanted to be able to function. I also had a family bereavement and family stress and I've just started a new uni course this week. All this in conjunction with not taking my anti psychotic (which certainly hasn't helped things) I now feel quite high and elevated. At the moment I just feel more confident and proactive with excess energy, but I'm worried it's going to develop into something more, or turn into a mixed episode because I had been severely depressed before I had all this stress. *sighs* I am so fed up of this roller coaster ride.

    sweetie, ditto what TE said. Even though the highs are great for functioning, they will be followed by the lows. I hope with every bit of this heart of mine that you get back on the medication :pinkheart: :arms:
