FEELING OFF (not well)
Difficulty in Making Fast Decisions
Inability to Detect Subtleties (jokes, nuances, sarcasm etc)
Increase in number of errors (when working)
Anxiety - flushing, sweating, nervousness
Sensory Overload - Flourescent lights bothersome
Good Decision Making
Sure of Myself
Fast Thinking (at a normal pace for me, though)
I think at the time when I wrote this, I wasn't taking any medicine. I was going through a period of "See, I don't need medicine!" I was med free and proud of it. Now I am medicated and happy about it. Times change. I can tell you that I now spend way less time feeling off.
I know that the feeling off list doesn't exactly read like a list of Bipolar Disorder symptoms. I think that's because I was having anxiety too. Also, the in-the-moment sensory experience of being in a hypomanic or depressed mood doesn't exactly read like a list out of the DSM manual. There's a difference between the internal experience and the external view of what's going on.
