definatly sounds like dysphoric hypomania/mania to me.
mine can get a little more off kilter/severish to where i need to damage things (including myself) i can't say don't listen to the thoughts in your head but for me-i'm totally IN that place and there is no other option. what i tend to do is try to lock myself away and focus on tedious stuff like i sometimes paint and sometimes a puzzle works. If i have tons of energy which typically grows with the dysporia i take all sharp or dangerous objects away and lock myself in my painting room, sometimes i sketch how i want to distruct...if i can create full sentences i try to journal, but many times i don't have the comprehension skills or the patience to do this.
-try to focus in on a task...heck maybe cleaning, this is active.
sorry not much help...but
> It seems like I have experienced uncontrollable thoughts that go round and round or just keep going on and on without my permission. They would fit the classic definition of racing thoughts, only they are all bad. All about how horrible I am and how I must have made mistakes a work, and past mistakes, etc, etc. What are these? What can I do to combate them?
