I think that was I, BarbaraCat, who described mixed states. I know it so well. My Bette Noir.

Are you on any kind of mood stabilizer? I think you've by-passed the part where you're taking an anti-bipoloar med. Is anything working for you? Lithium is the one that calms my demons, although they are forever present, just not so... pesky.
