I think you need to tell her the anger you are feeling- I doubt very much she thinks you are deliberately doing this (having hypomanic episodes) rather she feels that it is unconcious on your part and she probably wanted to get your feelings to her suggestion. I honestly can't remember the time frame I wrote my post, but it was similar to yours. My response was confusion and then when I agreed to track my episodes it was obvious my shrink was wrong. If you are a rapid-cycler it's probably easier to track and just to prove her wrong you might want to try it. Is she correct that you have been through trauma? If so, then yes we all develop defenses- some extremely unhealthy like self-injury (SI), dissociation, etc. I have no control over my SI, I wish I did and it's something my therapist and I are working on. I hope this makes sense to you. Take care, Judy
