> Hi.


> I saw one woman who was in hypomanic state who had a great deal of anger. I don't know if this would be considered a dysphoric hypomania or, rather, a mixed state. I am unclear what the difference is between them. Maybe you can explain this.

I don't think I qualify as any kind of expert, but...

I'd say it's "dysphoric" if it features (as a main theme) a deeply unpleasant mood. Contrast it to "euphoria", which is the other extreme. I wouldn't say feeling angry qualifies as dysphoria, much like amusement doesn't qualify as euphoria.

A mixed state is some combination of depressive and manic features, and can include dysphoria. An example would be having a lot of energy but feeling irritable or thinking "depressive" (negative) thoughts (especially if they are "racing").

> Are your manic states spontaneous, or are they drug-induced?

I've experienced both.

> Did your illness begin before you graduated high school?

I wouldn't say so, except for the beginnings of depersonalisation. Or ADHD for that matter. Social phobia was pretty bad back then too, unlike now. But no depression, and nothing that I feel would qualify as (hypo)mania.

> Did you ever have a manic state before being treated with medication for the first time?
