I am having a hypomanic episode. I haven't slept in days. No matter what I try I can't sleep. Is there anything I can do to get past this quicker or do I have to wait it out? I just want to sleep. I tried running several miles but I never tired. I can't focus for five minutes at work. How long can someone go without sleep? Ugh!! :eek:

Do you have an emergency sleep medication you can take?

If it gets much worse, please talk to your doctor and ask for advice.

Thanks! I'll call them. I was able to get a little sleep with the help of some rum. My symptoms seem like they have been getting worse in the last 6 months. Can that happen with BP II?

Yes! Proper medication that includes a mood stabilizer, antidepressant and in my case an atypical antipsychotic are key.

Can someone with BPII become BPI? Please say no!
