> Hi Elizabeth, Nancy again. That's very helpful. But, is it true that both unipolar and bipolar individuals can be highly labile? I assumed that the increased lability was associated with rapid cycling (something I'm personally familiar with) :) Nancy

Yes, it's true. That's not the only distinctive feature of atypical depression, though. (Actually I'd say the overeating is the most obvious thing.) Also, it's not just labile mood, it's *reactive* mood.

I've seen people who have this, and that has convinced me that it's quite real and that it's not "just" a form of something else (such as bipolar II).
