What does hypomania feel like? A Moodsurfing reader recommends this You Tube presentation because, he said: “I found this video refreshing due to her very detailed description of what it feels like going through the various episodes.”
Imogene Walters, working in London, has made several videos about bipolar, including one about suicidal feelings, and she speaks directly and meaningfully to the interested listener. Not a medical professional, she does not attempt to give medical advice, just focuses on her own struggles with bipolar.
The video is well made and easy to listen to, lasting about twenty minutes. It’s a personal testimony that gives a complete and honest description of the presenter’s experiences and feelings. It may be especially useful for family members and others in your support group because it gives a clear sense of what happens during mood swings.
