    Default Hypomania. Is it type related?

    According to the DSM-IV-TR, a hypomanic episode includes, over the course of at least 4 days, elevated mood plus three of the following symptoms OR irritable mood plus four of the following symptoms:

    * pressured speech; rapid talking
    * inflated self-esteem or grandiosity;
    * decreased need for sleep;
    * flight of ideas or the subjective experience that thoughts are racing;
    * easy distractibility and attention-deficit (superficially similar to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder);
    * increase in psychomotor agitation; and
    * involvement in pleasurable activities that may have a high potential for negative psycho-social or physical consequences (e.g., the person engages in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments).[1]
    * obsessive behavior, whether mild or severe
    * poor judgment relative to a particular situation's judgment call
    * uncontrollable, or only partially controllable, impulsivity
    * excessive sexual activity
    Hypomania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    I've been diagnosed with hypomania once when I thought I had simple sleeping problems...now I think it's back again....

    I used to really think I had hypomania when I was in 7th grade. It was very odd. I would only sleep for four hours..and I felt like my mind was sharper than ever...I was flowing with ideas...I had plans for the world lol. I was more confident than ever. It was kind of nice, actually.
    ﴾ لَهُمْ دَارُ السَّلاَمِ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَهُوَ وَلِيُّهُمْ بِمَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ ﴿
    "When you see an evil act you have to stop it with your hand.
    If you can't, then at least speak out against it with your tongue.
    If you can't, then at least you have to hate it with all your heart.
    And this is the weakest of faith."

    it's not type related. the depressive episode that follows renders any speculative type correlations trivial
