In recent weeks/months I've often found myself filled with energy and excitement for no real reason. I'll find it hard to concentrate or even sit still and I'll need to channel the energy out somehow or I'll become frustrated. I can go on walks that last a number of hours and not feel the need to stop. However, I'll then have a day where I'll be exhausted and struggle to leave my room or I'll be both tired and elevated. I'll also have a number of days or weeks where I'll return to my depression before the energy kicks back in.
I know there are number of things that could be causing this such as my antidepressants or possibly an overactive thyroid but I have noticed the following as well:
I often have racing thoughts or I'll feel noticeably more important than I really am (but not to the point where I'll have delusions). This is very unusual for me since I have long term self-esteem problems. I also sometimes sleep less and I've done more shopping than usual. These aren't alarming since I'm not putting myself in any serious debt and when I lose sleep it'll only be 1-3 hours, however I am not the type to do much shopping and I usually rely on plenty of sleep to function. Sometimes I have impulsive urges but I never act on them.
