Yes, I get more depressed at the end of the day. If I'm more manic, it's worse in the am.
I have the same problem. I am so busy and running around during the day that I almost forget I am bipolar. But at night (if I go to bed before my husband) as soon as my head hits the pillow here come the racing thoughts.........and not the good ones. I need to find a coping mechanism or adjust my meds. As of now I take my meds every day at 1:00pm.
I tend to wake up in the morning feeling lousy, up and down during the day, then better at night. I just feel better having made it through another day.
That's great that you wake up happy. Sometimes I wake up almost in an anxiety attack!
For a while I did have a terrible depression that would come over me as soon as it started to get dark out. After I realized it was happening every night, I started using some coping mechanisms and was able to stop the cycle.
It's good that you realize your more depressed at a certain time of the day. The fact that your aware of it means you can do something about it. I hope it gets better for you soon!
I am the opposite of you. I am most depressed in the morning. Do you think your meds could be a factor in your low mood? Just a thought. OTOH I think its worth checking with your pdoc.
