You might think about your mood, thinking, and behavior as symptoms of a BSD if you can say things like, “When I felt like that, other people asked me why I was being so. . ” Mood and Energy. In the early stages of a manic, or “up,” cycle, you may feel great, euphoric, or elated. It may seem like you finally feel good. You may need less sleep than usual. You may feel “juiced up,” electric with energy and ideas—or you may feel very irritable or angry, losing your temper at the slightest provocation.

So if you feel like you were always criticized as you were growing up, when you become more depressed, you may ruminate about an episode in which you were criticized. If you were abandoned by a lover or a parent just as you were getting sick, the hurt and angry feelings you felt at the time might have been very intense. When you feel hurt again in the same way, you might reactivate the original memories. If you are very committed to achieving something in your life (for example, a successful career or great wealth) and you haven’t yet succeeded, when your mood shifts, you may ruminate again and again on failure.
