Amazed to read what you are discussing. After nearly two decades of being 'depressed', my peppered history of inexplicable moments of 'up' in between the long, long downs(especially recently) and long list of very un- unipolar sysmptoms led me to believe I may be bipolar. Everything you are discussing seems to make perfect sense.
When I was on effexor I was like an unstoppable force - unbelievably confident but often going too far. Also had occasional anxiety and sleep disruption. I have read this is a typical bipolar response to effexor.
Can it be treated without meds?
