    So sometimes I get these weird moods that I have come to accept as normal, but I got one the other night, and it freaked my bf out so much, and he wouldn't calm down no matter how many times I told him, it's happened before and I'm always fine.

    I'm not qualified to say this as I've never taken drugs but at a guess, I feel like I'm high. He has a lot of friends who have done drugs and he described it as like I had taken E or Speed. I just was acting quicker than usual and talking in a higher pitch than usual, and laughing a lot...

    It happens occasionally and I'm always just mad and out of control for a while then eventually just slow down again and I'm tired. Does anyone know what this could be and whether it would be worth mentioning to the psych when I finally get an appointment?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes it's worth talking about it with your psychiatrist.

    I get the same thing, and I've found it's linked to severe anxiety, not all the time- meaning a lot of the time I'm just thrilled/happy/grounded full stop- and people think I've taken mdma. But when I'm dissociated-manic I feel very similar to you. I really hate it and I've been trying to work with the anxiety over the last few months..

    Do you feel stressed/anxious about anything at the moment? Do you like the feeling? Is it uncomfortable and you wish you could just slow down because you have difficulty concentrating?

    I'm never anxious really, no. It's an ok feeling but after I while I wish I could slow down

    Is it a problem for you, as it happens only occasionally and you're not harming yourself or others? I know your BF gets freaked but he would if he's not used to seeing you like that.

    I'd suggest talking about things you see as a problem with your psych- things that are disrupting your life. But it's up to you, if you like your psychiatrist, and you have a good relationship there's no harm talking about what you mentioned. :smile:
