I have been in a slight upswing for a couple of weeks now and there is really nothing I can do about it.
The most interesting thing since I have had my ECT is not that I have not yet been down (although that is impressive), it is that I have been so up. This is now the second distinct time that I have been in an elevated mood. I have never once gone back to back up cycles. Now, neither has been manic. Both have been hypomanic but they have both been very prolonged.
It is a new experience in more than one way, first, just the back to back thing, but also because my manic cycles are usually very short. A full manic cycle for me, of which I have only had maybe four in my life, will last two to three weeks. A hypomanic cycle, of which I have had dozens and dozens, can be shorter, like from four days to two weeks. So experiencing this much elevation in mood is bizarre and becoming difficult to deal with.
