Thank you for this, you describe very well how I can sometimes feel. Hypomanic episodes feel so very good to begin with, I once walked into the office of a newspaper and on the spot convinced the editor to give me my own column, with no previous experience. Before you know it though, the crash occurs and generally it ends up with other people suffering emotional damage. After a recent diagnosis I am trying to see if I can regulate through self awareness and healthy living.

I’m 18 I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression when I was 14 and I’m 18 now I take antidepressants but I realised it’s more then that I can became annoyed or hyper and il cry for like couple minutes feels pointless then something just changes and I feel okay again today I was so hyper I couldn’t stay still and I was talking more and it’s 3am right now and I can’t sleep and I feel bit lower but okay at the same time and mum notice my mood cause I got snappy at her but everyone thinks it’s just depression and my anxiety it’s so confusing I wanna get an appointment but it’s hard and a lot of stress is going on.

Oh my goodness, this describes a lot of the ways I feel... I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 today and I find it hard for me to believe that the things I once thought were normal feelings of happiness were episodes of hypomania. I felt sad, but talking with my partner and watching videos like yours is helping me. The part where you said you feel like people are looking at you and you feel that you are annoying everyone hit home. Thank you.

Oh fuck. My therapist told me she doesn't think I'm going through a hypomanic phase but this is how I'm feeling rn. It started about 2 week ago and has slowly been building up. Everything seems to be going at 120mph. Depression feels like there's constant fog in my vision and what I'm feeling now is like the picture has been completely cleared and everything is brighter and beautiful. I am just so happy about life, I know im not depressed anymore. I'm in love with my life again and I fucking love this feeling. I've been socializing way more and I am playing with my dog everyday and I don't seem to run out of energy. Also, my sleep has decreased as well as my appettite. ???

Are you able to contact your therapist again and explain the increase in symptoms you’re experiencing? It can be easy to miss hypomania as it isn’t always super apparent to an outsider - it’s always worth checking in again, just in case.

You have my full sympathy, navigating NHS mental health services has been an absolute nightmare for me at times. If you’re able to find a GP who’s willing to make a referral, and if you’re able to keep pushing for a compassionate psychiatrist, it can make such a difference. But I know how difficult (and exhausting) it can be to have to advocate for yourself constantly. Have you checked out services and support delivered by charities like Mind and Rethink Mental Illness? I’ve found them to be quite helpful in the past. Wishing you all the best and I’m sorry you’ve had a tough time accessing support - it shouldn’t be that way.

+Imogen Walters wouldnt even go to the doctors with mental health in uk they just think your trying to get on sick
Imogen Walters (14 дней назад)
carl bland With regards to hypomania I think it very much depends on the pattern of your mood episodes/any medication you’re taking/a number of factors. Bipolar as a disorder is deemed a chronic condition, although often manageable with the right support and care. Your psychiatrist or psychologist is best placed to provide detailed information while helping you with things like tracking your mood episodes in order to identify any patterns and episode triggers, as well as supporting you in exploring treatment options. I hope that helps!

Madelynne Herbertson (15 дней назад)
Newly diagnosed. I feel like I get like 1-2 days of the 'good' hypomania, I'll get a tone of work done, my house will be spotless, it's kinda great. Then everything turns to shit, I can't stop thoughts racing, I rage at the drop of a hat, I'll pace around my house. Super weird :/ I'm not 100% sure i've had true hypomania if i'm honest. Maybe because I also have GAD and they kind of feel the same?
Imogen Walters (10 дней назад)
I’ve often found it tricky to distinguish between hypomania and anxiety, especially at the beginning of a hypomanic episode. And it’s even more confusing when anxiety comes through during a mixed episode! If I’m euphoric hypomanic the anxious sensation tends to feel more like excitement, but it’s tricky when it isn’t a “happy” hypomania unfolding. Lots of love to you, I’m finding it such a relief to connect with others here 💛
Madelynne Herbertson (15 дней назад)
That paranoia part is spot on for me though.
Sierra Elizabeth (17 дней назад)
Thank you for being brave enough to share this. I found myself nodding along to everything you’ve said. I’m so sorry that you’re having a difficult time getting in to see a doctor, that is so frustrating. I’m lucky that I have found an amazing psychiatrist and starting taking a drug called lamictal which has been life changing. I think I may need to increase my dose, but it has really helped to make my mood swings less extreme. I hope that you can find some help soon.
Imogen Walters (16 дней назад)
Thank you! I’m so glad you’ve found something that’s helping, that must be a relief. I’ve finally found a brilliant psychiatrist and started Lamotrigine (I think the generic name for Lamictal?) but had to stop taking it after a few weeks due to some side effects I was experiencing. I’m disappointed, but planning to try a different medication. Love to you 💛

I weirdly only go through depressive cycles every few years. I normally bounce between normal and hypomanic. But my depressive episodes last for months. Im currently in a depressive episode and have been for almost 4 months already. I do see than Im slowly making my way out of it but I was recently diagnosed and Im working on getting help.
Imogen Walters (16 дней назад)
I’m so glad to hear you’re working on getting help, I hope you feel better soon. It can be quite the journey, can’t it. Love to you 💛

I have it with a very fast heartbeat, do you have it too? When I'm over productive, my heartbeat goes so fast all the time, all night all day… You too?
Imogen Walters (19 дней назад)
I’ve noticed that my heartbeat often seems to race when I’m hypomanic - it feels like adrenaline and a constant need to go, go, go!

I feel this, to a degree. I'm also BP2. Sadly my BP is more... "stuck" in the depression. While my hypomania rarely lasts more than 24-48 hours. I think the longest I have stayed hypomanic is a week? Otherwise, it's generally mixed. So, I'm hella irritable, I'll cry at anything or I'll start crying out of nowhere and that is when my anxiety rears its ugly head. I don't know if it's just me though, but I can generally tell when im falling into a hypomanic phase. I know when im super restless and happy at the same time. I'll start a bit with like, moving an object from one place/position to another to, say, cleaning my room or house like crazy or I'll start organizing and reorganizing things. Like, again my room. I'll spend the whole day moving furniture around and rearranging my room. Then I'll crash. Another tell is when my thoughts are racing and my body feels slow and I can feel my eyes moving back and forth. Like, I don't know if any of this is making sense. Haha. Also, when I can't sit still but I'm sitting or standing in a "proper" or stiff way. Like I don't even know. All I know is that I become hyper-aware of what my body is doing; and yea, the talking, you're on point with that. I won't shut up. I'll jump from topic to topic, I'll be smiling more than usual. I'll engage in social interactions more. I'll text my friends more then get upset because they won't text back fast enough. Then, hours or even 30 minutes later ill be back to feeling exhausted, drained, not nessecarly depressed but I can feel myself heading in that direction. It can be damn exhausting. Anyway, sorry I made my comment super long. It was just to tell you that I feel you on so many levels. I'm amazed you're not on meds, im currently on Seroquel for the depression. It sucks but I'm one of the rare few that it's actually helping. Lol. Most people hate it. Thank you for making this video. I'm sure it has helped a lot of people who might think something is wrong but they're not quite sure what it could be. Not that im saying self-diagnosis is good, but let's be real. That's when we start to look for answers until you realize, yea something is wrong with me I need help. So, again thank you for making this video. Stay strong girl. 🙌🏽❤️❤️❤️

Wow I never usually comment on YouTube videos but I really had to thank you for this! For about 4/5 years now I've been struggling with this (I've always known deep down that it was bipolar/bipolar 2 but never wanted to really admit it as I was terrified of the diagnosis so I always made excuses like "I must be exaggerating" or "it's all in my head" - plus as you mentioned, whenever the mania/hypomania swings round you feel on top of he world and as if nothing was ever wrong) after all this time I recently decided to finally seek help but I've been really struggling to get the diagnosis I know I need, mainly because I was massively downplaying my symptoms to the healthcare professionals. I was beginning to feel incredibly hopeless about it all and starting to believe maybe I'd been wrong all this time and i truly was making it all up. However this is the first video I've watched that has described me so perfectly to the point I'm moved to tears, this really was the final bit of motivation I need to really push for my diagnosis and finally get the help I know I need to live a more stable and constructive life. Thank you incredible amounts for making this video, I can't put into words how much this has helped me. Onwards and upwards!! I wish you and everyone else dealing with anything similar all the best ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I’m sobbing so uncontrollably hard right now because I was just recently diagnosed, but then hit that euphoric hypomania and didn’t take it seriously, and now I’m feeling exactly how you describe the mixed stage. I have felt so crazy and out of control and it’s so comforting to hear someone describe what I’m feeling exactly how I experience it after feeling so alone. thank you for this so so much 💖
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
I’m so glad you feel less alone after watching, that was my aim in filming this - I know how scary and unsettling it can be to feel as if you’re the only person wading through it all. And it’s great that you’ve got a diagnosis you can work with, wishing you so much love 💛
Swift (1 месяц назад)
I think I was misdiagnosed adhd because this describes me exactly. I go through phases where I’ll barely sleep for days or weeks and I feel motivated as soon as I awaken. But Is it even worth getting it diagnosed? Took over a year to get an adhd diagnosis and treatment has helped quite a bit, but becomes pretty useless some days. Idk how much does treatment help
Swift (1 месяц назад)
Imogen Walters I’ll do that, thank you! :)
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
I think finding the best type of treatment to manage your symptoms is key, and it can take a while to figure out what that treatment might be. I recently started a new medication and I’m crossing my fingers that it helps, but I’m also trying to stay open to the idea that there might be some trial and error involved along the way. I’m also waiting for therapy input, and it might take a while to find the best type of therapy before I feel any benefits. Sometimes pinpointing a diagnosis can open the door to treatments tailored for that condition, or at least that’s how I’ve found it to be here in the UK. If you’re doubting your diagnosis or are concerned at all, it’s always worth bringing it up with your doctor and seeing what they think. It might be that there’s an additional or different treatment that might feel like a better fit for you. Sending lots of love to you as you navigate your journey 💛

My therapist is diagnosing me with bipolar and I’ve always felt like I’ve been bipolar. And she didn’t wanna tell me which one because she wants me to research which one resonates more with me. And she recommended watching videos on people’s experiences and symptoms and this is exactly how I feel wow I’m just like i don’t know I have so many questions. It’s so hard to find someone who might know exactly how you feel.

Literally thank you so much for posting this I recently just turned 20 and got diagnosed with Bipolar 2 disorder and borderline personality disorder and I worry that I make this stuff up in my head and that I’m just crazy but after you described how you felt when you were hypomanic is mainly how I feel so it makes me feel better that someone can describe how I act so I have a better understanding of it. Really appreciate you thanks.

Treinstein (2 месяца назад)
Very interesting. I do have days where I'm inexplicably euphoric. Anticipation for things like seeing friends and ideas trigger it. I get all the 'manic' symptoms you describe except I can recognize my euphoric state immediately. It feels like rushes of adrenaline and excitement. Most of the time, I'm very relaxed so there is a clear distinction to me. I don't find that I get depressed... But maybe that's an error in my judgement. I understand the meaninglessnes of everything on a philosophical level and contemplate everything (somewhat synically). But when I think about it, if I'm not alone in these periods, little things will bother me, going out makes me anxious (irrationally) even if it's just for a walk around the block (as if I think something will happen or I'll be judged). If I think about it long enough, I'm able to overcome the fear somewhat by just doing it and using my philosophical understanding of meaninglessness to reassure myself that my worries don't matter. I can also suppress my euphoria by thinking through it, by recognizing the meaninglessnes again. The philosophical thought plays a big role in keeping me level headed and 'baseline'. Maybe most people don't experience what I do and they therefore have no need to analyze everything the way I do; that would also explain my 'odd/different' disposition to the external world.

If someone made a video on "what being normal feels like " I would definitely watch it! I'm curious
BjornoISporno (12 дней назад)
Don't think like that. Normal is only a standard that elitists or what society creates as a standard to hide there real true self. We know we have something that tends to disrupt our life. But don't see it as not normal. You and who you are, flaws and perks is what makes...well 'you' And that's normal i think for most people.
Jessi Turner (1 месяц назад)
I've been bipolar since I was 9 :/ I have no idea what it's like to be "normal" I'd love to see a video of their thoughts through the day :)
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
Jessi Turner If you mean what baseline is like when you have bipolar disorder... I’m not sure I even know anymore 😅 Hopefully now I’ve started a new medication I’ll settle into something stable. But if you mean normal as in, what it feels like to not have bipolar, I’d love to know that too!

Thanks for sharing. It helps the rest of us with mental health struggles to identify and understand ourselves better. I share your feeling about the mental health side of the NHS being very sub-standard. When so many people are having issues with mh these days, it would be very useful for GP practices to have staff more specifically trained in mh.
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
Mikey I completely agree with you - I’d love it if there were specialist mental health professionals in every GP surgery. It’s such a pressing issue, it would save a lot of time and stress for all involved. Wishing you all the best 💫
Evan Taaved Pert (2 месяца назад)
Thank you for your upload.... I would like to emphasize that Hypomania PRESENTS NO DELUSION, which would otherwise indicate the "full blown psychosis" of MANIA you speak of.
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
Evan Taaved Pert Thanks for commenting! Different psychiatrists seem to have different opinions on this, I’ve found. Some include mild delusions as a symptom of bipolar II, particularly in mixed episodes (which, from what I’ve researched, used to be deemed exclusive to bipolar I, but not anymore). It’s interesting to see how diagnostic criteria and the opinions of psychiatrists shift and change over time. Either way, what really matters to me at the moment is accessing the most appropriate treatment for my symptoms. Wishing you all the best 💫

Thanks for sharing your personal experience. My support system wants me to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and someone with experience in the field is worried I may be cyclothymic or have bp2. I wanted to here from someone who knows and experiences these things every day bc internet and doctor's articles can be a little vague and sometimes scary. I'm still not sure,of course need a professional opinion, but it feels better to hear some of the things I've experienced most of my life are real.
Imogen Walters (1 месяц назад)
Ash I’m so glad you found this video helpful. I felt the same way about articles online - I wanted to hear directly from those living with bipolar, as it made it easier to understand and gave me space to reflect on my own symptoms and experiences. Lots of love to you 💛
Gcoolsnow (4 месяца назад)
I have bipolar type 2 disorder as well but when the hypomanic goes into the “bad” stage I tend to get very very irritated and angry. At the drop of a hat I can go from zero to a hundred just bc I’m getting annoyed over someone doing something small like just being around me while I’m like this. Then when you talked about having a lot of energy that you need to burn off I get that as well but I see it as restless. I become very restless and my thoughts become very irrational and just “out there” with my ideas. I think of ways that I can burn that energy off in very poor ways that could hurt me or get me in trouble when I’m like that. Then I tend to have ideas and thoughts that come to me one after another. I go from one topic to another as well. Or when I’m in that euphoric hypomanic state I get hyper sexual and I tend to have a lot of sex with my fiancée more then regular. At this stage I get more hypersensitive and I can take jokes very personally and I can get my feelings hurt more often then usual. So I can completely understand what your experiences are and from listening to you I can relate 200%. All your symptoms and the ways that you deal with them as well as how your significant other calls you out when your hypomanic is what my fiancé does as well so I can really really relate and your basically told my story in a 20 min video and I cannot believe that. I sent my fiancé this to listen to it so I know when she sees it she’s going to tell me that’s how you are and get when you are in a hypomanic episode. You said exactly what I would of said so really when it comes to this disorder your me in a girls body. So I would like to thank you again for making these videos and I look forward to seeing more!!! I hope you have a good day today. 🙂🙃🙂

This is SO interesting, thank you for sharing, it helps many of us understand the experience better than just researching Google. What causes type II bipolar? And what meds are typically given for mood stabilization? Thank you for this series.
Imogen Walters (5 месяцев назад)
I’m so glad you found this interesting, thank you for watching! As far as I’m aware (and I’m no scientist, that’s for sure!) there are various theories as to what causes bipolar disorder/where it stems from. Some seem to suggest it has a genetic component, while there’s also a theory that it can be triggered by a stressful event or situation at some point in one’s life. I’m not really too sure though, it’s something I’d like to research more. As for medication, there are various types available but again I’m not sure about the specifics and it depends on the individual. Often antipsychotics and mood stabilisers are prescribed with the aim of bringing greater balance <3

You are amazing, sharing this, it really helps because I have three friends that go through this, I personally don't understand any of it but I know that they really suffer with this. Two of my friends take medications the other one won't. I've learned a lot about it once I found out they have this. I really try to be around them but sometimes it's easier to just stay away, because there is no way to be around them when they are in their phase. One friend took meds for a while but said that he felt good and it wasn't natural for him to feel good so he quit. Years later he took meds again started doing well but quit again. Now he smokes pot and that has actually been the best thing so far, he seems to keep his moods pretty balanced, he's not one minute happy and the next snapping your head off. I just wish he didn't have so smoke because I don't like the idea of him putting all that into his lungs. I've looked into a vaporizer to see if maybe he would try that instead.

I can relate to everything you said, as I have suffered with Bipolar Disorder for years. I was diagnosed at 26 and I'm now a few months from 58. My husband of 31 years is also able to tell as soon as he walks in the door what my mood is. Its a tough road but you can only keep moving forward. Thanks for sharing.

I’m sorry that you go through such severe ups and downs. I can’t imagine what that is like :/. That’s terrible about the NHS and I hope you can find some sort of balance for what you are experiencing. On a positive note, your hair looks cute up in a bun! 💜

Aaw thank you! I usually feel so self conscious about wearing my hair up so I was kinda scared, haha. Fingers crossed I’m able to get an appointment sorted soon <3

Thanks for being so open and honest in your sharing. It takes a brave, strong person to do that on social media where there's so much judgement and negativity. Much love to you. <3
